Barn Owl Box & IP Camera System
Now you can have an HD Camera Owl Box with live video and audio streamed to your mobile phone or smart device via an app.
This complete Gardenature Barn Owl Box and pre-installed IP camera kit is specifically designed to to keep you in touch with your own wildlife channel anywhere anytime, all you need is a 4G or broadband network signal.
This high quality Barn Owl Box is constructed from exterior grade bonded plywood which has been treated with two coats of water based preservative. Designed to last for many years with minimal maintenance, we use only stainless steel screws, brass inspection door bolts and hinges. Whilst being strong and durable, the 'A' frame barn owl box is specifically designed so that it can be installed about 12 feet from the ground onto the face of a tree trunk, wall or existing pole by one or two persons, without the need for haul ropes or lifting equipment.
The large inspection door is specially designed to aid cleaning and also permits the safe and secure monitoring of breeding barn owls by licensed conservationists. Once in position the floor of the owl nesting box should be lined with about 2" (5cm) of small wood chippings or similar.
Once a Barn Owl has chosen its first nest site it is likely to use it again year after year, generation after generation.
About 2000 pairs of Barn Owls currently breed in this particular type of owl box, with an estimated 100,000 owlets having fledged during the last 20 years. This has contributed significantly to the conservation successes now being seen with Barn Owls in the UK. Owl boxes now account for three-quarters of the nest sites used by Barn Owls with A frame type owl nesting boxes known to produce the highest fledging successes recorded in the UK.
The Barn Owl Box IP Camera System
This is an IP (internet Protocol) Owl box camera kit which allows you to easily stream live video and audio direct to your mobile or tablet device in just a few easy steps.
This 2.0 megapixel IP nest cam features high tech processes like 'Starlight Imaging' and 'IR-Cut' filtering to deliver the best colour image in even the lowest light levels. This nest box IP camera cannot fail to impress with its stunning high definition 1920 x 1080p true HD colour images, far superior to that which we have seen from any other bird / Owl box camera on the market today!
Other features you will love about this outstanding IP camera include things like a highly sensitive microphone allowing you to hear as well as see what's going on. We also achieved a perfect 92 degree viewing angle using a 4 mm lens that gets you up close to all the action, whilst maintaining high definition images covering the broadest angle without any distortion. We have already pre-focused the lens for use in a camera ready birdhouse but you can very easily adjust it to suit your alternative project applications if required.
Decide where you want to place the IP camera then measure the distance back to your broadband router. Always allow a bit more cable than you need, when you know the required cable length select your desired length in the drop down box above and click the BUY button. This nesting box IP camera sends the 12v power down the weatherproof Cat5e cable through a POE Injector (included) which requires a mains socket close to your router, so there is no need for power outside. The network IP camera will need setting up via an App which is really quite simple to do, full instructions are included. Once done you can watch and/or record your bird box IP camera live from anywhere using your IOS or Android mobile, tablet device, you can even view on your home PC using a suitable software download.
Part Wireless option
If you want to put your IP nest box camera way down your garden and don't want to run the cable, take a look at these Passthrough Powerline Plug-in Adaptors which are available at additional cost.
These powerline plug-ins are a good alternative to cabling and a great way to stream high definition IP cameras up to 300 meters, but you will need to make sure outdoor and household plugs are on the same ring main.
You can plug your IP camera cable into one Powerline adaptor ideally located in your garage or shed mains power socket. Next, plug the receiving Powerline adaptor into another mains plug where an ethernet cable can reach your router. It really is plug and play!
Note: If you use these adapters the supplied POE injector will need to provide power to the camera from the Powerline adaptor closest to the camera and not at the broadband router end.
