Need recommendations for an outdoor Pi Project

by skade88 on Fri May 23, 2014 11:09 am

Hello!

I want to use the Pi + Pi Camera as an outdoor WiFi IP security camera. I have the Pi and camera already. I just need some help on how I can get a case that is rugged for the outdoors and how to power it via solar+battery.

1) Do y'all have any outdoor/water/weather proof Pi + Pi camera cases?

2) There is no easy way to run power to the place I want to put the Pi security camera. Is there a good solar+battery option that I can use to power the pi round the clock?

Thanks for your help!

--Dave

We have several weatherproof cases. This one might work for you

We have a load-sharing solar LiPo charger:

And several solar panels:

A general search of the shop for weather/water-proof comes up with these items:
