You guys are doing some very neat research. That waterproofing job is impressive.

Thats an awesome camera. It is very clear. I like the bass with the audio.

Wow, that's impressive. Picked up a Tenvis TZ 100 a while ago and the HD vid is excellent. Audio is lacking, but I love the alarm mode, where three images get sent to my email upon motion detection. Very nice work Jeff.

Motion detection is done through pixel monitoring and activating the video recorder upon pixel change.


I can see the advantage of image masking to limit false triggers caused by wind and moving plants, but what has been your experience in the marsh? Many false triggers?

(I was talking with Rod Jackson yesterday about your tests -- thinking that false triggers wouldn't be much of a problem in snow leopard habitat in the Himalayas).

All motion detectors have their limitations, as you know. The advantage with this particular setup is I am 100+ miles away and because it is connected to the internet, I can log in and adjust the masking while sitting in my jammies drinking coffee.

If the camera is used in the field with no internet you can utilize POE and run the CAT5 wire about 300' to power the camera. So, to make adjustments you don't need to visit the camera and disturb the set. You just connect to the camera with a laptop at the POE point.

This guy just walked in front of one of the IP cameras.

This project monitors a milkweed plant 24/7 to record plant growth and the many pollinators that help.

The equipment setup includes a remote IP security camera modified for close focus and infrared illumination.

Image

The plant holder is a Wimberley PP-400 held in place with a little camo duct tape.

Image

For power and internet connectivity we used a small trailer pulled by a ATV. On the trailer is a 150 watt solar panel, a weatherproof box containing the electronics and a external omni-directional cellular antenna on a mast.

Image

In the box is a deep cycle marine battery, a 20 amp MPPT charge controller and charge system monitor. To connect and power the camera there is a POE switch, step-up power inverter, a cellular modem and router.

Image

The IP camera is set up to take a picture every five minutes and record video when motion is detected. The still images are uploaded immediately to an FTP server to be viewed by the camera operator. The camera buffers five seconds of video at all times. When motion is detected the camera starts recording five seconds before actual motion detection and continues to record five seconds after motion ceases. Using this feature allows the user to see the insect arrive into the frame and depart. The video is recorded to a micro SD card in the camera and retrieved over the cellular link. Using a cellular link also enables the camera operator to stream live video, adjust the motion detection and camera settings remotely.

The video below is a timelapse of images taken over two consecutive nights.

Pretty neat! I like the idea that you don't have to aim a PIR to a specific point, you can capture motion throughout the cameras view. Keep up the fantastic work!
