Timer Camera X is a camera module based on ESP32, integrated with ESP32 chip and 8M-PSRAM. The camera (ov3660) with 3 million pixels , DFOV 66.5 ° and shoot 2048x1536 resolution photo, built-in 140mAh battery and LED status indicator, featuring ultra-low power consumption design. There is a reset button under the LED. Through RTC (BM8563), timing sleep and wake-up can be realized. The standby current is only 2μA. After timing photo taking function(one photo per hour) is turned on, the battery can work continuously for more than one month. The module supports WiFi image transmission and USB port debugging. The bottom HY2.0-4P port output can be connected to other peripherals. Through M5Burner burning firmware, Timer Camera X can be set directly with Camera-Tool, and Timer Camera X data can be processed in UIFlow.

The low-power power management solution adopted by the Timer Camera series is different from the CORE and StickC devices. When in use, the PWR button is used as a power-on button(long press 2s). If you need to shut down the device, you need to use the software API or press the Reset button on the PCB.When using external power supply, the device will remain powered on.

Driver Installation

TimerCAM may not work without drive in some systems. Users can manually install FTDI Driver to fix this problem. Take the win10 environment as an example, download the driver file that matches the operating system, unzip it, and install it through the device manager. (Note: In some system environments, the driver needs to be installed twice for the driver to take effect. The unrecognized device name is usually M5Stack or USB Serial. Windows recommends using the driver file to install directly in the device manager (custom Update), the executable file installation method may not work properly).

    Looks cool, kinda works, not much documentation

    Seems to take snaps well, app isn't signed, bitdefender flags it as a virus (for suspicious behavior). Web interface on device seems to work at the default 320x240, but falls down on streaming resolutions. Snaps seen to work most of the time. This device really needs a more thorough readme.md on GitHub at the very least. The hardware, as always, is really nice, but without the rest of the package is ultimately disappointing.

    <p>Thanks for the feedback, we are trying to improve the relevant documents as much as possible. You can refer to the steps in the tutorial(https://docs.m5stack.com/#/en/quick_start/timer_cam/quick_start_cameratool) to configure and modify the resolution. If you have any other questions, please contact our after-sales email: <a target='_blank' href='mailto:support@m5stack.com'>support@m5stack.com</a></p>
