How to Install the Raspberry Pi Night Vision Camera?
Use the bolts to attach the LEDs whenever required. The bolts will connect the LEDs to 3.3V power. Use the potentiometer to adjust the LEDs to properly manage the light-threshold. Don’t forget to unplug Raspberry Night Vision Camera before making any adjustments.
Don’t forget to use only the official Raspberry Pi Power Supply for the LEDs. In the case of any other power supply, the LEDs won’t be able to keep the intensity to the set max-limit and will result in overheating. In any case, don’t forget to keep an eye on the LEDs intensity to make sure that it doesn’t heat up.
