Homemade Triggertrap remote trigger

I was reading an article about a Kickstarter project that failed miserably, and found out a company called Triggertrap. Their project failed but they were already selling remote triggers for cameras. Remote triggers are fun, they allow to control camera remotely……..

I have never owned a proper remote trigger, I have always used the time trigger function on my camera.
The remote costs around 42 euros but the app is free. So I thought it should not be hard to build my own remote that works with the app.

The schematic:


Well, ideally you should use optocouplers to separate the electric circuits, but I like to live dangerously.

It fits neatly in this little red box. Now I can take selfies 10 meters away.
