As can guess it didn't take me long to take spykee apart and finf out how it works and to start adding new bits to him.

We have put together a few kits for those that are interested in adding more features to spykee.

The first is a servo controller, this is a handy thing to have add to spykee to allow you to move the camera up and down etc. this kit controls one servo and takes it’s signals from the LEDs on spykee. There are two versions of the kit:

  • Hardwired kit– this is where you will need to open spykee up and solder to a circuit board inside.
  • Photocell kit – this kit does not require you to open spykee up in order to fit, so save you voiding the warranty etc
