Abstract

Although there are many wildlife cameras in various price ranges available on the market, these may be too expensive for certain uses and may provide functionality that is not necessarily needed. This paper concentrates on guidelines for building a low cost device capable of storing times of movement detections and exposing simple API. This API can be accessed via Android counterpart application, that reads, stores and presents the data. Such technology may become useful for hunters trying to determine the times when they are most likely to encounter their prey at a certain location or similar situations when movement intensity based on time is the information of interest.
