This is an innovative and practical design for a bird box for which a patent has been applied. Having a pre-installed camera and daytime light makes it easy for bird watchers and researchers to observe and study birds without disturbing them. Additionally, the design, allowing for easy access for cleaning and maintenance is important for ensuring the health and safety of the birds that inhabit the box.
The use of a thin rope to lower the box and tie it to a cleat is a simple and effective mechanism for moving and securing the box. It’s also great that the box can be returned to its home location once cleaned; this minimizes the amount of disturbance to the birds. To avoid tangled cables the camera and the light remain on the wall whilst the box alone rises and falls for cleaning and maintenance.
Wi-Fi cameras require a strong signal to work effectively. We recommend that you have a Wi-Fi Repeater or a MESH node located as close to the camera as possible to the camera.
Overall, this Accessible Bird Box with camera and lighting is a fantastic addition to any bird watcher or researcher’s toolkit!
