Well camers, I did it. I made my first cam. It took me all day cause I was nervous. I used the RS PIR, a RS hobby box and an old OWL AF with the slide switch. Had to buy my wife a new camera for the old one. So I bought her a Canon OWL PF / Date, who knows, see might lose it. Ha - Ha !!! I am using 9Vdc and all home tests are going well. I tested the camera for the shut down mode and it stayed hot after 2 hours, good thing. Now I'm ready for a timer. I will be contacting you guys real soon for that. Thanks so much for all the help and confidence. Ya'll are the best. Anybody live near Clayton, NC? I like to see your cams.

A big congrats on the first one.  You're doomed now, you just don't know it yet... LOL    One question, though.  You had to buy your WIFE an owl pf date? She's only gonna get mad when it goes AWOL!  Great forethought though, you're gonna build another...

my suggestion is to make the cameras look to the wifes eyes exactly the same. When she says is that ANOTHER camera you say ah.... it just looks differant cause i am doing modifications on number 10 or I mean the first one Dear. Don't forget the dear part.

Munce, I would strongly suggest that you get a waterproof box prior to leaving your cam out in the weather. I started with the RS box and ruined my sensor when the box filled up with water.
