I've been tasked (as the "techie" for a non-profit) with devising a system to take time-lapse photos of a house our foundation is building for charity.
I have toyed with hooking up a raspberry pi with a decent-sized memory card to a cheap USB webcam and sticking it in a birdhouse on site-- but that seems to have some decent likelihood of failure. The project is expected to go for several months, at least.
I can't be sure of wifi, though I'm pretty certain I'll have reliable power-- and while I'd prefer to do it as a webcam, I think it might be smarter to rely on physical storage.
Is there any off-the-shelf solution that won't break the bank that can offer this type of functionality? Or can anyone recommend a simple rig I can piece together from spare parts?
NOTE: I did read the post that is marked as a duplicate, but that clearly says it's for indoor use in a house where (presumably) there's easily obtainable power and wifi.
