These only work reliably with a 5V power supply, even though the manual states they can work at 3.3V. If you want to use it at 3.3v, you will need a lower baud rate.


There are two versions of the camera: The RS-232C interface model and the TTL interface model.

Please do NOT connect RS-232C interface model directly. You can connect TTL interface model only.

Support capture JPEG from serial port
Default baud rate of serial port is 38400
5V power supply
