Just starting a project, so I'd like to get some suggestions on the design and hardware.
The goal is to 1. Take series of still images when a cat enters a specific area 2. Store the images locally on a SD card, and sent to a cloud storage with regular interval 3. Able to view the images through a browser in a chronological order
Most likely the logic is something like:
Cat enters the area -> detected by (proximity sensor/IRSensor/mechanical switch) ->Trigger the camera(image taken) -> stored locally -> uploaded to cloud
I am not quite sure which one to choose between an Arduino Micro or RaspberryPi Zero W since both of them are able to connect with camera .
So I come out with something like(Arduino Micro + ESP8266 WiFi + proximity sensor + I2C camera module) or (Pi Zero Wireless + Pi camera + proximity sensor)
Software perspective I am a windows guy, familiar with Arduino but has 0 experience with RaspberryPi
Any suggestions are appriciated.
