Digital Wireless Conversion Kit
Convert a wired bird box or wildlife camera into a digital wireless AV system with this Gardenature AV Transmitter and Receiver Kit
The wireless transmitter and receiver used in this Gardenature kit is of a professional CCTV quality, it uses digitally encrypted technology which is much more powerful than some cheaper systems that only cover short distances and are prone to interference. The advantage of using digital wireless is that you will get 100% interference free video and audio quality as these paired devices will automatically channel hop if they detect a signal being used by another device such as broadband etc. Our digital transmitters are capable of sending a clear AV signal over 150 meters 'line of sight'. We can also supply optional high gain antennas for distances of 250m and upto 1km 'line of sight'.
What is line of sight ? This is the measured distance achievable when there are no obstructions between the TX and RX. A standard house wall can reduce the transmission distance by upto 30 meters.
So what goes where ? Although the audio & video transmission is wireless from the TX transmitter to the RX receiver, there is a need for some cable connections to the camera and for power.
Inside: The receiver will connect straight to your TV via a spare Scart input (adaptor included), or yellow &
white RCA Video/Audio inputs. There is a 240v / 12vDC plug for mains connection at the wall. We also sell HDMI connectors should this be required. (available when you click the BUY button.
Outside: The AV transmitter is mounted inside a weatherproof housing, the camera is connected from here by the (fitted) 2 meter AV/DC cable allowing for convenient positioning. There is also a 10 meter DC power cable which should be run to the nearest mains power supply, ideally located in a shed or garage etc. This means that the overall distance from the outdoor mains location to the actual nest box or wildlife camera can be upto 12 meters away, extensions available if required.
