    Default Follow up on previous thread and discussing what happens if the camera is found

    Hello everyone,

    I posted in this forum not too long ago about hiding a camera in a public bathroom and being able to activate it remotely to make it hard to trace the camera back to me. I won't go into too much detail regarding the specifics of my intended setup, but you can read my original post here:

    Help me set up 808 #16 safely at location with huge potential for wins(toilet voyeur)

    In that thread, someone recommended a different camera other than the 808 #16 and I ended up purchasing it, but despite all the great features it claimed to have, it would crash over and over again and had a tendency to overheat and crash even more, missing out on potentially awesome wins.

    So after much research since I started that earlier thread, I've decided to go with the super reliable 808 #16 again. However, there is no way to control the camera remotely by default. I want to be able to set the camera up, but power on and turn on motion detection remotely, so the camera doesn't start recording as soon as I set it up. That would make it easy to determine who set it up by corroborating the order of my subjects in my camera's recordings with what cctv in the area has captured.

    So in order to be able to overcome this while still using the 808 #16, I've decided to take on a little project that will require some innovation on my part. I intend on using a microcontroller (like a raspberry pi) to control the logic circuits on the 808 #16, that way I can turn the camera on/off and switch modes without having to touch any button on the camera. With some Python programming and interfacing with the raspberry pi over the wifi network via SSH, I don't have to be anywhere near the camera to activate motion-detection recording. The technical info regarding soldering wires from a microcontroller to a 808# 16 can be found here:

    The 808 #16 films great and adding this remote interface with a wireless-enabled microcontroller seems like a great idea to me.
    That way if my camera gets found, the recordings on the camera won't help anyone trying to find who planted it as I will have waited a significant amount of time after planting the camera to activate it remotely.

    However, I was curious about how far law enforcement would go to try to figure out who planted it.
    The 808 cam I'm about to work on I got on ebay from a China-based vendor and the raspberry pi I will be using I got from a well-known US-based online vendor of microcontrollers.

    However, does anyone think that if my camera setup were found, that the raspberry pi could be traced back to that online vendor? And then perhaps the online vendor cooperates with law enforcement to determine who bought that particular raspberry pi? Or am I just being paranoid? Is there any way that those devices (i.e. 808 cam, raspberry pi, usb battery packs) could get traced back to my online purchases?

    Feel free to weigh in on this. Looking forward to what my fellow OC voyeur enthusiasts have to say.
