Within the interconnected world of IoT, there are few companies who are leading the way quite like Espressif, with Particle being the other major competitor in the space. As such, it comes as no surprise that this fantastic IoT dev’ board, known as the ESP32-CAM, is a fine product of Espressif, and features WiFi + Bluetooth with an onboard Camera and even a built-in flash for complete solutions to IoT, so you can give your IoT systems eyes to “see”, in addition to the many Sensors that allow them to “feel”.

The camera included with this development board is the OV2640 camera, which is surprisingly high quality for the low price that it’s typically offered for. However, the board also allows use with the OV7670 camera too, allowing you to use whichever camera best suits your project – with more than enough computing power to operate a range of different tasks, and multiple sleep modes for impressively versatile power consumption.

This product is comprised of two parts, one of which is the Development Board while the other is the OV2640 camera module. This allows you to utilise these separately, or as a single unit, giving you more freedom to take your projects in whatever direction they need to go.

Typical Applications for ESP32-CAM: WiFi + Bluetooth Camera Development Board:

The computing power and multiple Communications modes of the ESP32-CAM allows this dev’ board to be used for an incredibly wide range of different projects, and this range of project possibilities is increased even further by the fact that it also has the camera, which can be used for excitingly modern projects like facial recognition or automated packaging. This, in addition to the high quality WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities, make it one of the most self-sufficient IoT boards that we’ve ever stocked.

Whether you want to integrate the ESP32-CAM WiFi + Bluetooth Camera Development Board in to existing projects or create entirely new projects based solely on the functionality of the dev’ board, there aren’t many boards out there that can offer so much versatility – especially so for the low price that it’s offered at.
