Wireless Bird Feeder Camera System. Ultra Hi Res
This complete bird feeder camera kit is supplied with a nyger seed feeder to get you started, but you can use it with your existing seed / nut feeders if required (recommended max length of feeder 450mm). Hang the bird feeder on the hook in front of the camera and watch birds feeding really close up, if you have a few feeders already in place simply position the camera to capture them all like a general wildlife cam. Have fun discovering which species like what food and what time of the day they visit.
This bird camera kit has other uses too! Keeping the camera in its viewcam housing you can try setting it closer to the ground, leave some food out to watch ground feeding birds or mammals.
Very easy to set up and hours of educational fun for all age groups.
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 (IR) night vision LEDs to a graduating on/off, gently supplementing loss or gain of natural light levels. 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 feeder 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 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 is mounted inside a weatherproof housing, the camera is connected by a 2 meter cable running to the bird feeder camera allowing for convenient positioning. There is also 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 bird feeder camera can be upto 12 meters away, extensions available if required.
