Powerful 3G-connected intervalometer

At the heart of the photoSentinel Pro is the low-power photoSentinel controller, which not only triggers the camera but also uploads photos, enables status monitoring and remote configuration changes, and even performs firmware upgrades, all over a wireless 3G network connection.
