Can someone suggest how this can be done at all?

A smart camera or smart IR sensor that can tell between a raccoon a human.

1. If it's a raccoon, time delay (to prevent false triggering) to turn on a sprinkler for 30 seconds if it is between April and November and after dark.

2. If it's a human and it's not one who lives in the house, time delay (to prevent false triggering), flash outdoor lights at one second interval for 2 minutes or until human presence is no longer detected.

Is it even possible and if so what equipment do I need? I'm starting from scratch.

I have a similar problem, the house is located next to the forest and animals often pass, I just turned off the alarm for now. I'm already tired of it.
