Bird Box & IP Camera System
The Nest Box
Our cedar nest boxes do not require any preservative treatment as the natural oils within the wood will protect it against
the weather conditions, but if you wish to paint the nesting box please use a water based solution. The roof section fits neatly into
a slot in the rear panel preventing rain from entering the nesting chamber, this is easily removed via two screws allowing
access to the IP camera. For ease of cleaning out at the end of the breeding season the complete front section of the nestbox
can be removed.
This garden nest box incorporates a removable front center panel which has been pre-drilled with a 32mm hole. Also included are optional hole reduction / protection plates 28 & 32mm, making this nest box suitable for the widest range of garden birds such as:
- Blue Tits
- Coal Tits
- Marsh Tits
- Great Tits
- House Sparrows
- Robins & Wrens (with center hole panel removed)
A quick release mounting bracket holds the IP HD camera in the optimum position, this also allows for ease of camera transfer between other Gardenature camera nest boxes and viewcam feeder products if required.
The Bird Box IP Camera System
This is an IP (internet Protocol) bird box camera kit that allows you to easily stream live video and audio direct to your mobile or tablet device in just a few easy steps.
Install this IP camera into your own bird box / wildlife habitat or purchase one of our Camera Ready Boxes, specifically manufactured for this type of nestbox IP camera kit to offer you the perfect setup.
This 2.0 megapixel IP nest cam features high tech processes like 'Starlight Imaging' and 'IR-Cut' filtering to deliver the best colour image in even the lowest light levels. This nest box IP camera cannot fail to impress with its stunning high definition 1920 x 1080p true HD colour images, far superior to that which we have seen from any other bird box camera on the market today!
Other features you will love about this outstanding IP camera include things like a highly sensitive microphone allowing you to hear as well as see what's going on. We also achieved a perfect 92 degree viewing angle using a 4 mm lens that gets you up close to all the action, whilst maintaining high definition images covering the broadest angle without any distortion. We have already pre-focused the lens for use in a camera ready birdhouse but you can very easily adjust it to suit your alternative project applications if required.
Wired optionDecide where you want to place the IP camera then measure the distance back to your broadband router. Always allow a bit more cable than you need, when you know the required cable length select your desired length in the drop down box above and click the BUY button. This nesting box IP camera sends the 12v power down the weatherproof Cat5e cable through a POE Injector (included) which requires a mains socket close to your router, so there is no need for power outside. The network IP camera will need setting up via an App which is really quite simple to do, full instructions are included. Once done you can watch and/or record your bird box IP camera live from anywhere using your IOS or Android mobile, tablet device, you can even view on your home PC using a suitable software download.
Part Wireless option
If you want to put your IP nest box camera way down your garden and don't want to run the cable, take a look at these Passthrough Powerline Plug-in Adaptors which
are available at additional cost.
These powerline plug-ins are a good alternative to cabling and a great way to stream high definition IP cameras upto 300 meters, but you will need to make sure outdoor and household plugs are on the same ring main.
You can plug your IP camera cable into one Powerline adaptor ideally located in your garage or shed mains power socket. Next, plug the receiving Powerline adaptor into another mains plug where an ethernet cable can reach your router. It really is plug and play!
Note: If you use these adaptors the supplied POE injector will need to provide power to the camera from the Powerline adaptor closest to the camera and not at the broadband router end.
