The Nest Box
Our multi-species nest box offers market leading quality and value for money. This birdbox has been hand crafted from high grade Western Red Cedar (sourced from well managed forests) and follows guidelines suggested by the RSPB and BTO (British Trust for Ornithology). This particular nest box has a removable front centre panel that has a pre-drilled 32mm entrance hole and includes hole reduction / protection plates 28 & 32mm, making it suitable for the widest range of garden birds:
- Blue Tits
- Coal Tits
- Marsh Tits
- Great Tits
- House Sparrows
- Robins (centre hole panel removed)
This camera bird box has been designed with a small sliding drawer in the apex of the birdbox roof which safely houses the camera and its connections, only the lens protrudes into the bird nesting chamber.
A quick release mounting bracket holds the camera in the optimum position, this also provides for an easy transfer of the camera between the gardenature nest box and bird feeder viewcam housing.
The Feeder ViewCam
The camera is already installed in the bird box for you, but if it's no longer the breeding season you can easily transfer the camera to the ViewCam Feeder housing. Hang a bird feeder (supplied) on the hook in front of the camera and watch birds feeding really close up. Have fun discovering what species like which foods and what time of the day they visit.
This Sony EFFIO CCD Ultra High Resolution 700TVL (TV Line) Camera has been designed specifically for use with Gardenature camera nest boxes and feeder camera kits. This truly outstanding bird box camera uses an intelligent Sony Effio DSP Chip which operates with a Super Light Sensor to cleverly adjust the image quality to suit its environment. Not only this, the light sensor also serves to adjust the x10 infrared night vision LEDs to a graduating on/off, gently supplementing loss or gain of natural light levels with an invisible IR. The result of this outstanding technology is that we can now produce ultra high resolution colour images in full light of day and sharp black and white images at night or low light level conditions. This mini bird box camera incorporates a highly sensitive microphone so you can hear as well as see what's going on. The nest box camera has a 3.6mm lens producing a 92 degree viewing angle, this has been pre-focused to the optimum position but can manually be adjusted if required.
The Wireless Digital System
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 entirely weatherproof and very simple to install. Each unit has approximately 1.5 meters 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.
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 connection to a mains point outdoors, ideally located inside a shed or garage for example. This means that the overall distance from the outdoor mains location to the actual camera can be upto 10 metres, 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 camera kits arrive ready assembled, so they really are just `plug and play' easy to install.
