 Hey deerone,Welcome to jesses page.
 What you need to do is go to the link above that says: "back to jesses hunting page and gear review"
click "cam trakkers" then click the homebrew link,there it all is for you to pour over.

Which Soleniod, what voltage is it rated for,  What voltage are you operating it at. Does it feel like it has enough force.  Give us a little more about your problem, camera, etc.

I'm movin this to the Game Trail Cameras & Camcorders, you'll get plenty of help there.
Technically it is Ok here but fits better in the other forum.

hey the solenoid is the one that is recommended by the trail cam site bought at jameco.i am using a 6 volt battery. it just dose not push hard enough. i am going to wire it in series with two 6 volts to make 12 volts. ijust do not understand how you get it to return back after it pushes. how close to the camera do you mount it.

If you do a search on solenoids you'll find several post on them.  Most of the post seem to suggest that using a solenoid is more trouble than it's worth.  I just built my first camera using one and I'm inclined to agree.  On my next one I plan on following Jesse's instructions on wiring into the camera.  I didn't do it this time because my ability to solder tiny electronic components was none existent but after a couple of months of practice I've now got the confidence to give it a try.

If you care to e-mail me, I'd be more than happy to share what I've learned about hooking up a solenoid.

deeone,

What camera are you using? Those selenoids take up a lot of space and have to be set just right to ensure it presses shutter button properly evertime. Probably easier(only sounds harder) to wire up a camera.


my 2 cents
