ESP32-CAM as it’s name implies, is a low cost development board with WiFi camera.
It allows creating IP camera projects for video streaming with different resolutions.
ESP32-CAM has build in PCB antenna. ESP32-CAM-UFL is the same board but with U. FL connector ESP module – an external antenna can be connected.
I will be using an external antenna, as streaming video is very poor using the printed antenna. I also found that the connection would only last a few minutes before reset was required.
I am in the process of designing an enclosure for this camera with rechargeable battery, come back soon to see more, and download fles to make your own.
