I’m building an application that will sense when the tank’s water level is approaching the top and turn off the water source to the purifier. I’m thinking I could use one of these cams to sense the water level and perhaps provide an image for an email status message. I have a solenoid operated water valve that I can control from both an Arduino and raspberry pi, so the cam will be integrating with 1 of these boards.
The cam will need to work in full light and dark since the tank lighting is on a timer (Skimming over docs and other posts I thinking possibly IR, but I’m not sure how the response would be through about 6-8 mm of glass).
Will these cams fit my with my requirements? If so what product or products would you suggest?
