Hedgehog House with Wireless Camera

This Hedgehog Box has a Digital Wireless CCD camera already installed for you. The hedgehog camera will produce colour images only if there is enough daylight coming through the entrance tunnel, this type of habitat is usually placed in and around foliage so clear black and white (Infrared) images will likely be received most of the time due to naturally low light level conditions. The hedgehog box camera includes a highly sensitive microphone so you can hear as well as see what's going on inside the hog box. 

The hedgehog house camera kit is very easy to set up straight to your TV, we include full instructions plus hog habitat hints and tips to help increase your chances of successful hedgehog nesting. If you wish to connect the hedgehog camera to a PC/Laptop or MAC you will find a range of optional accessories when you click on the `Buy' button.


The Hedgehog Box

This handmade hedgehog house has all the best features of our previous hedgehog boxes including an integrated entrance tunnel leading round to the hog nesting chamber with good roof ventilation. This high quality hedgehog home has been designed with a removable roof which is angled to disperse rain water over the back of the hedgehog box.
You can help the hedgehogs in your garden by providing a safe home for them over the winter months.

Hedgehog Home features:

  • Fully built-in tunnel with large square access for even the largest hedgehog to avoid unwanted visitors. 
  • Handmade with screwed joints and double coated with a preservative 
  • Raised base to enable the box to be partially buried. 
  • Safe nesting chamber well away from the tunnel entrance. 
  • Specially designed ventilation to provide just the right temperature and humidity. 
  • Removable and routed roof for secure fitment, easy inspection and cleaning. 
  • Drainage holes in the base of the hedgehog box. 
  • Material: High quality 12mm resin bonded ply.
  • Floor battens which raise the hedgehog box off the ground.
  • Dimensions: H250 x W420 x L516 mm
  • Weight: 6.25kg


The Camera

This CCD High Resolution 420 TVL (TV Line) Camera has been designed specifically for use with Gardenature camera boxes and bird feeder camera kits. This hedgehog box camera has a light sensor that switches the x10 infrared night vision LEDs on/off supplementing loss of natural light levels with an invisible IR (infrared). The hedgehog box camera only produces colour images if there is enough natural light getting into the box (depending on positioning) and/or black and white images in low or even no light levels. The camera also houses a highly sensitive microphone so you can hear as well as see what's going on inside the hedgehog box. This camera has a 3.6mm lens which produces a 92 degree viewing angle. The lens will have been pre-focused to the correct position but it can very easily be adjusted to suit alternative applications if required. 

You have the option to upgrade the camera to a superior 700TVL Sony Effio Camera when you click on the 'Buy' button

Digital Wireless Transmission

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 designed to be entirely weatherproof and really simple to install. Each unit has approximately 1.5 meter 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. HDMI and USB connection options are also available

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 connecting to a mains point outdoors, ideally located inside a shed or garage for example. This means that the overall distance from the outside mains location to the actual camera can be upto 33ft / 10 meters, 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 wireless camera kits arrive ready assembled so they really are an easy DIY plug and play installation.

Hedgehogs in the Garden

The hedgehog is known as ‘the gardener’s friend’ as it will eat slugs, beetles, caterpillars etc., and does no harm, so if you have a garden a hedgehog is to be encouraged. They should not be kept in close captivity, but regarded as welcome visitors.
If you want to attract wildlife to your garden leave wild areas and avoid tidying up too much. Hedgehogs tend to hibernate between November and mid March and may choose the stack of leaves or branches in your garden. For this reason if you have to get rid of such material move it to a different spot before setting fire to it - a hedgehog may be sheltering or hibernating in it. They like to nest under things such as sheds, hedges and brushwood and they need plenty of dry leaves to build their nest.

Why have a hedgehog House?

25% of hedgehogs do not survive from one year to the next due to many things like road kill, bonfires, slug pellets, poisonous pesticides and late born hoglets not reaching the minimum 600g safe winter weight.  So please help to provide a safer nesting environment.
