There is also a built in microphone so you can hear as well as see what's going on.

Gardenature wildlife cameras are easy to set up and can provide hours of educational fun for all age groups

Bees are a gardeners friend, attracting solitary bees is not only safe but very beneficial to pollination of flowers, fruit and vegetables
The hole sizes of this bee hive habitat are precisely specified to attract non-swarming bees like the Red Mason Bee, Leafcutter Bee and other solitary bees. These friendly bees are industrious and safe around children and pets. The bees are naturally attracted to holes in wood and this mini solitary beehive provides a habitat that has become harder to find in modern gardens.
Fascinating and great for education, the beehive trays can be carefully slid out and separated to view the formation of small cells where the eggs are laid, or indeed where predators have been active.

Gardenature wildlife cameras are easy to set up and can provide hours of educational fun for all age groups.

The Beehive Camera Box

This Solitary Beehive box offers you a top down camera view of the top beehive tray. Handmade in our UK workshops using only the highest grade PEFC certified Western Red Cedar (responsibly sourced) and FSC Pine Nesting trays, this camera beehive box offers good quality, durability and great value. This cedar beehive box does 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 mini beehive box please use a water based solution. The roof fits into a slot in the rear panel preventing rain from entering the bee chamber, this is easily removed via two front section screws allowing access to the camera. For ease of cleaning out and inspection all trays can easily be removed and the complete front section of the beebox can be removed.

A quick release mounting bracket holds the camera in the optimum position, this also allows for ease of camera transfer between other gardenature nest boxes and viewcam feeder products if required.  

The Camera

This CCD High Resolution 700 TVL (TV Line) Camera has been designed specifically for use with Gardenature camera boxes and bird feeder camera kits. This beehive camera has a light sensor that switches the x10 infrared night vision LED's on/off supplementing loss of natural light levels with an invisible IR (infrared). This bee box camera produces high resolution images that will be black and white 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. This high tech spy 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

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.


Select the desired cable length then click on the `Buy' button, you will then be offered optional accessories such as PC / MAC USB connection, Extension Cables, HDMI connection and much more...
