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 a partial view of the entrance hole instead of 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 unique design from Gardenature that offers you a very different view on the secret lives of nesting birds.
This Sony EFFIO CCD Ultra High Resolution 700 TVL (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 LED's 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 3.6 mm 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 a professional CCTV quality, it uses digitally encrypted technology which is much more powerful than some cheaper systems that only cover short distances and are prone to interference. The advantage of using digital wireless is that you will get 100% interference free video and audio quality as these paired devices will automatically channel hop if they detect a signal being used by another device such as broadband etc. Our digital transmitters are capable of sending a clear AV signal over 150 metres 'line of sight'. We can also supply optional high gain antennas for distances of 250m and upto 1km 'line of sight'.
What is line of sight ? This is the measured distance achievable when there are no obstructions between the TX and RX. A standard house wall can reduce the transmission distance by upto 30 meters.
So what goes where ? Although the audio & video transmission is wireless from the TX transmitter to the RX receiver, there is a need for some cable connections to the camera and for power.
Inside: The receiver will connect straight to your TV via a spare Scart input (adaptor included), or yellow &
white RCA Video/Audio inputs. There is a 240v / 12vDC plug for mains connection at the wall.
Outside: The AV transmitter & camera has a 10 meter DC power cable which should be run to the the nearest mains power supply, ideally located in a shed or garage etc. This means that the overall distance from the outdoor mains location to the actual nest box camera can be upto 30 ft away, extensions available if required.
All gardenature camera kits arrive ready assembled, so they really are just `plug and play' easy to install.
