The Trip-Cam is a trip-wire triggered spy- and security camera. Sweet!
In this project we are going to take an ordinary camera and turn it into a trip-wire or magnetic reed-switch triggered spy and security camera!
Put your components into the breadboard according to this schematic.
Open your camera.
Test the breadboard circuit.
Solder all the connections together either barebone or on perfboard.
Now just wait for someone to come.
This project is an easy and fun project to make whether you need to guard your room or just spy on people! So let's get into it!
