I am designing a simple surveillance system (with 1 camera) for a remote location. Initially I had intended to use Arduino:
-arduino ethernet shield with a microSD breakout board
-push button to signify the opening of the gate
so, BUTTON PRESSED = LED ON = TAKE A PICTURE
BUTTON NOT PRESSED = LED OFF = OPERATE AS NORMAL
A few people have advised me to use Raspberry Pi instead. I have never used arduino / raspberry pi before. is there anyone who's done a similar project / who may be able to advise me?
The operation of my system must be as follows:
1) I must be able to take pictures of the site from my office at will.
2) in addition to this, a picture must be taken if the gate to the site is opened
