View Full Version : modifying an old trail camera

So I am abandoning the build for now. I think I will start by trying to modify an old camera. I have a spypoint ir-5 that I really like, except for the red glow. My question is can I remove the removable red-glow LED board and replace the LED's with No-glow Ir's or can I make a whole new board with more no-glow LED's on it and just wire it to the existing power source. I have pictures too.

I think you'd have to use the same board, but you might be able to unsolder those LEDs from the board and use some new 5mm LEDs (I assume they are 5mm) at 940nm.
