Kestrel Box with 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 Camera
At 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.
The Rest of the System
A professional x3 core cable (Audio/Video/12vDC) is already connected to the camera in the roof of the nest box, the other end of the cable needs to be routed into your property. The cable plugs are black, yellow and white. The black is for mains power and connects to the (supplied)12V DC power adaptor / plug. The remaining RCA yellow (video) and white (audio) connectors can either plug into a spare AV/AUX socket on your TV, / DVD recorder, or a spare TV scart input using the (supplied) scart adaptor. Switch on at the mains plug, then select the appropriate AV channel on your TV, sit back and wait for the show to start! All very easy but if you need any help we are just a phone call away.
