Ahoy fellow pirates!
We’re expecting a baby soon, and I’d like to make my own baby monitor using a Raspberry Pi zero W and the camera module (plus some environmental sensors).
However, I have some doubts about what PiCamera to buy : the standard one or the one without the IR filter. Ideally, I’d like the camera to be able to work in low (almost none) light conditions as well as normal indoor daylight.
- would the camera without IR filter fit the bill?
- do I need to trow some IR-Light leds in the mix to grant visibility in low-light?
- is there any other option?
Thanks a lot in advance!
