Electronic Components for the Wildlife Cam Case
What else do you need to make your Naturebytes into a Raspberry Pi powered Wildlife Camera?
Below are the components we have used for in the Wildlife Cam Kit and that we recommend to use your Wildlife Cam Case:
We’ve provided links to The Pi Hut where you can buy components, where there isn’t a link you can easily find the parts on most online stores.
- Raspberry pi Camera V2 thepihut.com
- Raspberry Pi – any of the A+, B, B+ or Zero models (we use the A+ for power efficiency but you can use any that you have) thepihut.com
- Micro SD Card (8GB+)
- USB flash drive 2.0 (small to fit inside case e.g. this one from amazon)
- RTC (Real time clock) thepihut.com/ optional
- PIR Sensor thepihut.com/
- USB Wire (Type A to micro)
- 3 x jumper Wires (female-female)
- Power bank (make sure it will allow the case to close – for example this one from amazon is 6 x 9.2 x 2.2 cm)
The Wildlife Cam Kit uses the below instead of a power bank:
- Rechargeable Li-ion battery (8800 Mah)
- Seeed studio Lipo rider V 1.3 (Seeed Studio)

We can’t wait to see how you use your Wildlife Cam Case.
