wireless nestbox inspection camera
NEW for 2018 - CABLE FREE DESIGN
Proudly designed & made in Australia specifically for wildlife applications. Our Wireless Nest Box Camera features a high resolution colour camera with in built video transmitter & a Cree white led illuminator mounted in a lightweight, extension pole mountable housing. There are no wires or annoying cables as the camera transmits live video from the tree tops to ground based LCD video monitors for viewing & recording. This system is ideal for Landcare groups, outdoor education, university students & wildlife managers.
Incorporates a Sony Super HAD 11 image sensor coupled with a glass objective lens to maximise low light sensitivity & picture quality. The Cree white light emitting diode provides supplementary illumination inside nest boxes & tree hollows. This diffused light is wildlife eye safe and allows colour imaging even when operating in dark environments resulting in better quality than a black & white infra red camera.
For most applications, the camera will be used as a "downward looking" camera; however you can rotate the camera assembly through 360° changing its aspect to upward or side viewing. Suitable for bat boxes. Attaches to any telescopic extension pole that has a 3/4" x 5TPI male thread. Lightweight camera housing is 28mm diameter and has 125mm forward projection.
Smart Battery Pack:
Camera is powered by a rechargeable Smart battery pack which when fully charged can provide up to 7 hours of camera use. The Smart battery can be hot swapped in the field, eliminating lost time due to flat batteries. Smart batteries can be purchased separately to extend your run time. Lightweight & compact the Smart battery mounts onto your extension pole in a protective cordura nylon pouch.
Smart battery features auto connect/ disconnect circuitry, manual ON/OFF power control button & led remaining battery capacity status display. They can be charged in the field using a 5 volt car phone charger with a typical recharge time of 3 hours using a 2amp/ 5 volt charger.
LCD Video Monitor:
This wireless LCD Monitor features a larger 5" display screen & has video recording capability to micro SD card (32GB max). Our Wireless Nest Box Camera transmits on a local area - open access network. This allows multiple LCD Monitors to connect simultaneously to view & record the streaming live video from the camera. We have achieved transmission ranges approaching 100 metres under ideal conditions but this range is not guaranteed. A higher powered camera is available if you require greater wireless transmission range, please contact us for details.
The monitor is powered from an internal rechargeable (13.2 watt) battery which provides for many hours of use & it can be charged in the field using a 5 volt car phone charger.
LCD Video Monitors with larger 7" screens are also available.
This lightweight Nestbox Inspection Camera assembly screws onto any extension pole with a 3/4" x 5TPI male thread. Most painters poles will suit.
