Hedgehog Box & IP Camera System
This high quality IP camera hog 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. This Hedgehog Box has an HD IP camera already installed for you. The hedgehog camera will produce colour images only if there is enough daylight coming through the entrance tunnel, this type of habitat is usually placed in and around foliage so clear black and white (Infrared) images will likely be received most of the time due to naturally low light level conditions. The hedgehog box IP camera includes a highly sensitive microphone so you can hear as well as see what's going on inside the hog box.
The Hedgehog Box IP Camera System
This is an IP (internet Protocol) Hog 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 hedgehog camera features high tech processes like 'Starlight Imaging' and 'IR-Cut' filtering to deliver the best colour image in even the lowest light levels. This hog nesting 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 hedgehog nesting 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.
Wired optionDecide where you want to place the IP camera hedgehog box 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 hog 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 hedgehog 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.
