This is a mouse imaging system designed to take timelapse photos every 10 minutes, even overnight in complete darkness. It uses 3D parts to mount a Raspberry Pi, and an Infrared Camera to a mouse cage.


Real Time Clock Setup

 echo "dtoverlay=i2c-rtc,ds3231" >>/boot/config.txt

edit the /lib/udev/hwclock-set file (sudo nano /lib/udev/hwclock-set) and "comment out" the following lines"

 if [ -e /run/systemd/system ] ; then
 exit 0

so they become:

 #if [ -e /run/systemd/system ] ; then
 # exit 0

Update the HW Clock from system time, assuming the Raspberry PI had is network connected.

 sudo hwclock -w 

reboot and then run:

 sudo hwclock -r
