Wireless Camera kit
This digital wireless camera kit is ideal for adding to an existing nest box but has many other uses too. This high quality mini camera kit will be delivered to your door ready assembled with simple set up instructions. The top of the range 700TVL Sony Effio video camera with light sensing infrared (IR) night vision provides outstanding colour images during the day and black & white images at night. There is also a built in microphone so you can hear as well as see what is going on. The Digital Wireless transmitter / receiver used in this kit will cover upto 150 meters distance (line of sight) with the standard aerials.
This Sony EFFIO CCD Ultra High Resolution 700TVL (TV Line) Camera has been designed specifically for use in sheltered positions such as nest boxes and mammal habitats. This mini 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 wireless bird box camera incorporates a highly sensitive microphone so you can hear as well as see what's going on. The camera is fitted with 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 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 nest box 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 nest box camera can be upto 12 meters away, extensions available if required.
