Camera Sensor

How does the camera activate to capture a photo?

A: Depending on the settings configured by the user, the camera can capture images at a timed interval (time-lapse) or it can capture images when the motion sensor detects motion within the camera's field of view.  Most cameras can also be set in “hybrid” mode, which uses time-lapse during daylight hours and motion-detect at night.

Is this motion or heat activated?

A:  The simple answer is “both”.  Moultrie cameras operate using a passive infrared (PIR) sensor, which detects what it interprets as motion and heat within the detection range of the camera lens.  When this motion and/or heat variance is detected, the sensor is triggered an image is taken.
