wireless nestbox inspection camera - 6B
This Wireless Nest Box Camera has been designed specifically for Australian wildlife applications. It attaches to various brands of extension pole and transmits colour video from the tree tops. Great for checking nests for eggs or chicks, peeking inside nest boxes or tree hollows. Live colour video is viewed remotely on the hand held LCD Monitor; by using several monitors groups of people can view video from a single Nestbox Camera. The camera transmits wirelessly so there are no wires or annoying cables to get snagged up in the tree branches. Ideal for Nestbox Surveys, Landcare Groups, Outdoor Education, University & Wildlife Managers.
Proudly designed & manufactured in Victoria. I have over 30 years experience making specialised remote wildlife monitoring systems, now in semi retirement my focus is on this range of Nestbox Cameras. Each one is hand made; PVC camera housings are extruded & machined in my Mornington workshop where electronic assembly & testing also takes place. I support Landcare & offer all Landcare Groups special pricing.
ABOUT THE CAMERA:
My Nest Box Camera features a 1200TVL resolution Super HAD sensor with glass objective lens (not a cheap plastic lens). A single LED (light emitting diode) provides wildlife eye safe soft white light illumination for the camera. I do not use infra red illumination; it is a common misconception that infra red light is less disruptive however though infra red light is barely visible to humans it is highly visible to nocturnal animals. Also colour photography is not possible with infra red, only black & white.
The compact & lightweight camera has 200mm of projection (refer photo above) & a maximum diameter of 28mm making it suitable for use with most standard species nest boxes. I do offer custom made to order cameras with extended reach or other options, please ask. The camera has a field of view of 70cm x 40cm at a distance of 25cm & can even be readily converted to a UPWARD LOOKING CAMERA by rotating the camera tube 180° making it suitable for Bat Boxes. Mounting port is threaded 3/4" x 5TPI and screws onto painter's extension poles.
LCD MONITOR/ RECORDER - 6B:
The 6B Monitor has a 12cm LCD screen on which the live video from the Nest Box Camera is viewed. It also features a video/ photo recorder that saves files to a micro SD card. Importantly all image files are imprinted with date/ time of capture allowing identification of where they were taken.
Our Nest Box Camera transmits on a local area - open access wireless network allowing multiple Monitors to connect and view the live streaming video simultaneously; ideal for school groups.
A sun shade also assists when using the monitor outdoors in bright sunshine.
6B Monitor has an internal rechargeable battery that provides hours of use. Can be charged in the field using your in vehicle 5volt / 2 amp mini USB car phone charger. LCD screen size measured diagonally. (LCD Monitor is imported - there are no Australian manufacturers of this product.)
SMART BATTERY PACK:
The Camera is powered by a rechargeable Smart battery pack that is housed in a nylon pouch secured near the top of your extension pole using two cable ties. A fully charged Smart battery will provide up to 7 hours of camera run time. Additional Smart batteries can be purchased if you require extended run time.
The four led display indicates battery "state of charge", intelligent circuitry prevents over charging or excessive discharge. Smart battery can be charged in the field in under 3 hours using your in vehicle 5volt / 2 amp micro USB car phone charger.
PROTECTIVE CASE - eco friendly:
Your Wireless Nest Box Inspection Camera is supplied in a compact storage case. We use this eco friendly case because it is constructed from polypropylene, the most commonly used recyclable plastic and manufactured in the United Kingdom.
Clear lid allows allows at a glance to easily identify the contents, case lid is secured by two clasps. Handy for keeping all the components together during storage & transportation.
The Nestbox Inspection Camera screws onto any extension pole with a 3/4" x 5TPI male thread, like a painter's pole & can be adapted to fit other types of pole.
For heights up to 5 metres: Bunnings have an excellent extension pole that extends from 1.8 ~ 3.6 metres & costs around $40 click HERE.
