The camera itself is mounted on a swivel head and attached by a ribbon cable, allowing it to be mounted external to your project while keeping the control board out of harm's way. There's even a mode to flip the video 180 degrees so you can mount the camera up-side down.
Navigating through the modes using the bi-color LED on the board can be a little confusing at first because the guide printed on the sticker seems to have "ready" and "record" backwards. When the light is green, you're on standby, when it's red, you're recording.
The battery connector on the control board is smaller than the standard JST connector that comes with our Li-Poly batteries. However, we've found that our JST-SH connectors, which can be found in the related items below, can be used to plug into the board although they don't fit perfectly.
Note: A firmware update is required to get full 720 x 480 resolution from the unit. You can get the firmware and instructions in the documents below.
If you are interested in Internet of Things (IoT) or M2M projects check our open source sensor platform Waspmote which counts with more than 100 sensors available to use 'off the shelf', a complete API with hundreds of ready to use codes and a low consumption mode of just 0.7µA to ensure years of battery life.
