There is nothing like looking out the window at 4:00 a.m. and seeing your system failure resulting in "uncontrolled misfires." Good times for sure.

Yes, you could do it easily by connecting the receiver beam's output wire and the camera shutter wires to a transistor or optocoupler. But you would leave control of the shutter clicks to the beam interruption. This means you gamble with either too few or too many fires per beam break event. Also, if the 2 beams became misaligned it would result in uncontrolled misfires.

You could also incorporate low power sketch in Arduino or build a low power ATM 328 controller, or another chip. Arduino is merely convenient.

Flashing light... as though the law was responding to an early morning disturbance in your yard.
