In this project, we’re going to make a motion sensor detector with photo capture using an ESP32-CAM. When your PIR sensor detects motion, it wakes up, takes a photo and saves it in the microSD card.

This project is very similar with a previous one, but after so many requests, we added a PIR motion sensor to the circuit. So, when motion is detected a picture is taken and saved on the microSD card.

For this project, you’ll need the following parts:

ESP32-CAM with OV2640
MicroSD card
PIR motion sensor
2N3904 transistor
FTDI programmer
Female-to-female jumper wires
5V power supply for ESP32-CAM or power bank (optional)”
