thanks ada support.
.. I did change to a 4ea 1.2V, 2450mAh battery producing 4.6V, 2450 mAh supply that reduced current of ardun/log w/ DHT 22 that resulted in a current of 20.1 mA. That will extend operating time to about 5 days. Now what can be done to get at least 3-5 months.
the next action I take will reduce CPU power. The Narcoleotic library is stated to reduce CPU power from 15 mA to 7 uA ! if that is true, it will mean that putting the unit to sleep without doing anything else, the power will go to about 5mA. The life will be approximately 500 hours or about 20 days.
What about it AdaSupport..
. Does that compute?
BTW... a trans-rec had scared the animals and some left,the darkened cage. would also like to use an IR detector to verify movement in enclosure... what simple IR sensor is available?
