We have a couple idiots in my neighborhood who have decided to start tagging this one specific area. It gets cleaned up, but they do it again within a few weeks. So, I got to thinking…. And could use some suggestions.

 

I want to setup a Gumstix to monitor this location with motion detectors and perhaps a small camera. This happens at night, I assume, so the camera would have to be low-light. I was thinking have the Gumstix activate the camera and record when motion is detected.

 

The whole thing must be very compact, easy to hide, and last quite a while on a battery, or even recharge the battery via solar, as long as it is out of sight. I have a gumstix with an MMC card and such. So, the gumstix hardware is taken care of. What do you guys suggest for sensors?
