Kestrel Box with Wireless Camera
This Kestrel Nest Box is constructed from exterior grade 12mm bonded plywood which has been treated with two coats of water based resin. Handmade in our own workshops to RSPB specifications, the Kestrel box is designed with a sheltered open fronted access, a removable perch and a sturdy fixing plate for optional side or back mounted installation. This very popular type of Kestrel box provides a long lasting nesting site for breeding Kestrel's to return to year after year.
This kestrel box will arrive complete with pre-installed colour camera connected to your selected cable length making it very easy for you to set up to your TV or monitor. Optional PC/MAC connectivity and other accessories are available at the checkout stage.
The Kestrel CameraAt about the size of a golf ball, the mini eyeball camera fitted to this box is a weatherproof Sony chipped 600TVL CCD camera which has a 3.6mm lens. Set in a metal casing this rugged camera has infrared night vision offering high resolution colour images during the day and black and white images at night.
Digital Wireless 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 of sight.
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 can 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.
