Need help folks,
I built a motion activated wildlife camera in an enclosure. It uses a PIR to activate the shutter on a Canon Powershot,....it is all in an enclosure that is about 1-2 miles in a ravine.
I would like to find away to send a signal from the camera to me every time the shutter is activated via the relay on the PIR. It doesn't matter what kind of signal but I have a blackberry so a text, email etc is perfect.
I don't want to incur costs such as cell phone sim card etc. I have 2 old Nokia 6585's and a Blackberry 7250 I could use but neither are on a cell network.
What other options are there?
I am handy but not an electronic engineer....would be great if something could receive indication from relay, transmit signal, then on the other end receive signal and convert to message...
I have extra laptops to receive a signal via USB port too..
I have included my current wiring diagram.
Thanks for any help
