Project: CCTV datalogger

Published on

Rough project idea which I just purchased parts for: Low-power AVR datalogger with a momentary push button. You push the button, it logs the current time to an SD card and goes back to sleep. Print a small housing for this with a Wii lanyard attached to it.

I press the button whenever you are seen on a security or CCTV camera. I correlate that with the location log that my phone makes every 15 minutes, and publish a heatmap of the locations of CCTV cameras. I bought the parts on Adafruit for 40$ and am writing some trash openscad to make the housing. This should be a fun excuse to get my 3D printer working and to get me back to making weird quantified self/omnicomputing projects.
