I am going to use the M5Cam as a surveilance camera for wildlife, it is a very simple setup, connect the M5Cam to a 5V battery source through the grove interface, and design an enclosure for 3D printing.

RPi UPSPack Standard
RPi UPSPack Stadard case

The case above holds the RPi UPSPack Standard, the cut outs are for USB ports, and the hole in middle will have the battery case below installed to allow room for the large lipo battery. The cut out on the right of the above case will allow the camera case to be installed.

Come back soon to see the completed article…

I have now finished this project and am creating a dedicated page to hold all instructions and files.
