It’s birding season and we’re thrilled for it this year!
After 20 years pioneering and perfecting our Bird Box Camera Systems, we are happy to introduce two market-leading solutions that will hit that sweet spot for every birding enthusiast!
Solar Powered Battery WiFi Bird Box Camera
We’re excited to announce that we have developed the world’s first ever completely wire-free WiFi Bird Box Camera System! If you don’t like messing around with wires and cables, you’re in the right place. You can now enjoy 24/7, uninterrupted access to close-up HD views and audio of nesting birds thanks to our Solar Powered Battery WiFi Bird Box Camera which can last a whole nesting season without connecting to a power source.
You no longer have to worry about needing to place your bird box camera close to a mains power supply. The camera is kept charged by a high efficiency solar panel with its own integrated lithium-ion battery pack. This ensures the camera stays fully charged, even on the cloudiest days. On the rare chance that the solar panel battery pack runs out, you can easily detach it and charge it indoors. Additionally, the camera has an internal memory of 32GB, allowing you to record up to 80 hours of footage of your nesting birds.
A Traditional Alternative to Solar
The alternative to our Solar Powered Battery WiFi Bird Box Camera is our WiFi Bird Box Camera with PoE Extension. In addition to connecting to WiFi, the camera can also be used out of WiFi range with an optional CAT5e Ethernet cable (up to 100m) that connects to a router. With a Power over Ethernet (PoE) adapter, this cable can also power the camera to offer a robust solution that does not rely on WiFi or power sockets near the Bird Box. The cables are weatherproof and the system Includes a camera mounting bracket to make it easier to mount and install. (This PoE kit can be found online easily but will need to be set up initially with a WiFi network to connect it please contact us for more information). A MicroSD card can be added to the camera to record footage of your nesting birds.
Specs & Features
Both cameras have spectacular features, giving you the chance to record or watch live footage of all the wonderful things your nesting birds get up to. Our solar powered battery WiFi camera and standard WiFi camera are equipped with 3.0 and 4.0 Megapixels respectively, to provide Full HD colour images, down to the smallest marking on your bird’s eggs - even in the lowest light.
We’ve thought of every detail to make this nesting season the most enjoyable for you so we’ve coupled our camera with a pre-focused lens to provide you with a perfect top-down view of the nesting chamber, maintaining HD images without any distortion. Other features include a light sensor and night vision infrared LEDs to produce crystal clear black and white video in total darkness.
You don’t have to worry about missing any of the action because you can choose to receive instant alerts on your phone when a bird starts nesting in your box. The motion detection triggers the camera to begin recording, which can be watched via the Nestera app.
What’s birding without bird song and chirping? That’s why we’ve included a built-in microphone that will get you a great soundtrack to go with those crystal clear moving images.
Here at Nestera, we’re all about sharing the delight of bird watching. With our safe and secure app, you can now share your camera’s feed directly from your phone or tablet with your family and friends, no matter where they are in the world.
Being animal welfare advocates, we place birds’ wellbeing at the heart of everything we do so our bird boxes are made from responsibly sourced Western Red Cedar. The natural oils present in the Cedar mean they do not require treating or painting.
The translucent windows provide optimum light levels for the camera, but do not let predators see in, while the removable panel on the front of the box allows easy cleaning.
Our Bird Box designs adhere to guidelines suggested by the RSPB and BTO, and are recommended by many different wildlife organisations such as British Trust for Ornithology and The Wildlife Trusts. Our Bird Box Camera Systems have also been used on BAFTA and Emmy Award-winning wildlife documentary series, Frozen Planet, as well as BBC’s Springwatch and Autumnwatch, and ITV's Love Your Garden.
