The BoarBuster electronics consist of a Camera Unit and a Trap Unit.
The Camera Unit includes a black-and-white camera, IR illuminators for better night-time video, a motion sensor, and a 3G cellular radio.
The Camera Unit is attached to a T-post which is driven into the ground approximately 20 to 25 feet from the center of the suspended corral. The Camera Unit should be mounted approximately 4 feet off the ground, with the camera pointed towards the center of the corral.
The Trap Unit is a gray waterproof box which is mounted on the corral, and connected with a four pin cable to the corral latch.
The Camera Unit communicates with the Trap Unit via a short range “Zigbee” radio. The Camera Unit communicates with the BoarBuster server via the 3G cellular radio. To conserve battery, most of the time the Camera Unit is in a low power “sleep” mode. The unit only fully awakens when motion is detected, or when a command is received from the server. For more details on the sleep/wake operation, see the section titled “Sleep/Wake Modes”.
