    I need to take a picture when a relay contact is closed in the most economical way. Does anyone have experience in the following scenarios and could suggest a camera model?

    Relay Closed --> Camera is Activated --> Picture is taken

    Relay Closed --> PC Application senses the relay contact and ACtivates camera -- Picture is taken

    Any idea is appreciated. The only solution I have at hand so far is using a logitech C250 and wire the microswitch and connect it to relay contacts, but there has to be a more robust way.

    Thank you all!
