“Use an ESP32 Cam and a passive infrared (PIR) sensor to create a motion-activated security camera that posts photos to a Discord channel.
Use an ESP32 Cam and a passive infrared (PIR) sensor to create a motion-activated security camera that will post a photo to a Discord channel, where you have access to create a webhook.
We’ll build out the test circuit, using a breadboard and jump wire. We’ll then build a wiring harness using Dupont connectors to allow for easy connections to the development board and PIR sensor.
We’ll then use our choice of a wall or ceiling-mounted 3D printed case to contain our parts and our camera.
The ceiling-mounted camera makes use of an inexpensive decoy camera that can be purchased online.
