As the convergence solutions become more common, the use of Arduino and Raspberry Pi boards has been increasing. These control boards has to be executed under power blackout. In this environment, we take advantage of solar power system to overcome the power out. In this paper, we poposed a effficient power control strategy. Our experimental device is a DSLR shooting device executed based a predesigned interval time. The control module of our experimental device is the compound system of Raspberry Pi and Arduino boards. Arduino board send the force signals to wake up Raspberry Pi. We developed a new control strategy algorithm for the efficient use of solar power energy. In this paper, we mesured the efficiency of solar enery consuming of our system. We programmed a control system to send DSLR shooting signals. In experimentals, we ensured a stable consuming of electricity during 10 days. In the end, it was found that the consumption power of the Raspberry was reduced by about 81% when the Aduino was combined to save power.
