Wireless Bird Feeder Camera System. Ultra Hi Res
This complete bird feeder camera kit is supplied with a nyjer seed feeder to get you started, but you can use it with your existing seed / nut feeders if required (recommended max length of feeder 450mm). Hang the bird feeder on the hook in front of the camera and watch birds feeding really close up, if you have a few feeders already in place simply position the camera to capture them all like a general wildlife cam. Have fun discovering which species like what food and what time of the day they visit.
This bird camera kit has other uses too! Keeping the camera in its viewcam housing you can try setting it closer to the ground, leave some food out to watch ground feeding birds or mammals.
Very easy to set up and hours of educational fun for all age groups.
This Sony EFFIO CCD Ultra High Resolution 700TVL (TV Line) Camera has been designed specifically for use with Gardenature camera nest boxes and feeder camera kits. This truly outstanding bird box camera uses an intelligent Sony Effio DSP Chip which operates with a Super Light Sensor to cleverly adjust the image quality to suit its environment. Not only this, the light sensor also serves to adjust the x10 infrared (IR) night vision LEDs to a graduating on/off, gently supplementing loss or gain of natural light levels. The result of this outstanding technology is that we can now produce ultra high resolution colour images in full light of day and sharp black and white images at night or low light level conditions. This mini bird feeder camera also incorporates a highly sensitive microphone so you can hear as well as see what's going on. The camera has a 3.6mm lens which produces a 92 degree viewing angle. The lens will have already been pre-focused to the correct position for you, but it can very easily be adjusted to suit alternative applications.
The Wireless Digital System
The wireless transmitter and receiver used in this kit is of the latest technology, the signal is digitally encrypted and
much more powerful than cheaper analogue systems which are prone to interference. The advantage of using digital is that
you will get 100% interference free video and audio quality as these devices will automatically pair and channel hop
if they detect a signal being used by another device such as broadband etc. This particular model is capable of transmitting
over 120 metres line of sight. We can also supply optional high gain antennas for distances of 250m and upto 1km line
This Gardenature Digital Wireless Transmitter and Receiver kit is entirely weatherproof and very simple to install. Each unit has approximately 1.5 meters of cable which has (RCA) Audio, Video and 12v DC inputs. The transmitter also comes with a 10 meter mains cable making it ideal for outdoor and indoor camera applications where the mains plug can be upto 30ft away from the camera.
Inside: The receiver will connect straight to your TV via a spare Scart input (adaptor included), or Yellow & White A/V inputs. There is a 240v 12vDC plug for mains connection at the wall.
Outside: The transmitter (and all gardenature cameras) require 12v DC power, so for a wireless kit to operate
a 10 meter DC cable is supplied for connection to a mains point outdoors, ideally located inside a shed or garage for
example. This means that the overall distance from the outdoor mains location to the actual camera can be upto 10 metres,
extensions available if required. The 10m cable terminates at the transmitter with two (splitter) 12v outputs,
one for the camera and one for the transmitter, this eliminates the need for a separate mains supply for the camera.
There is an RCA Video (yellow) and Audio (white) which connect to the camera for signal transmission.
All gardenature camera kits arrive ready assembled, so they really are just `plug and play' easy to install.
