The Nesting Box
Our very popular side view bird box offers market leading quality, durability and great value for money. Handmade in our UK workshops from high grade PEFC Western Red Cedar (responsibly sourced) this gardenature design provides garden birds a warm and secure place to raise their family. The camera positioning in this nest box offers the viewer a unique and rather unusual side-on camera image (including the entrance hole), rather than the traditional top down view. The camera, cabling and connections are safely mounted behind an opaque plastic panel whilst the camera lens discreetly protrudes into the nesting chamber. As the camera is mounted at the top of the sloping side wall, nesting material and mess is kept away from the camera at the base of the box. Also included are optional hole reduction / protection plates 28 & 32mm, making this nest box suitable for a range of garden birds:
- Blue Tits
- Coal Tits
- Great Tits
- House Sparrows
An original and popular design from gardenature that offers you a very different view on the secret lives of nesting birds.
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 nest box camera also incorporates a highly sensitive microphone so you can hear as well as see what's going on. The camera has a 3.6mm lens which produces a 92 degree viewing angle, the perfect setup for a nest box. The lens will have already been pre-focused to the correct position for you, but it can very easily be adjusted to suit alternative applications.
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.
