differences between the two wireless systems
The Wireless Cedar Bird Box - with 540TVL or 800TVL Sony Eiffo CCD Colour Camera.
Cedar bird box with a High Resolution 540TVL or Ultra High Resolution 800TVL Sony Eiffo CCD
colour camera with infrared and audio - a day / night camera (TVL = Television Lines = number of lines image
is composed of, higher TVL = higher resolution).
The bird box has two circular 32mm panels on the sides to let in extra light. In good light it produces
a clear colour images with all hole sizes. When the light level falls a photocell turns on the infrared
LEDs and the image turns progressively to a black and white image. In total darkness it will produce a clear
black and white image. The infrared light is invisible to the naked eye, harmless to the birds and does not
disrupt their natural day-night, light-dark cycles which artificial light will do. Colour images can only be
produced with visible light, colour images are therefore only possible during the daytime.
The picture (video signal) and sound (audio signal) are sent to
a receiver by a wireless 2.4ghz transmitter. There is no need to
run cables from the bird box to your TV. The "receiver base" is placed near your TV or monitor
and plugs into one of the TV's AV channels via the provided AV cable or plugged into a
spare AV channel on a video recorder to allow recording of the pictures and sound. The
camera operates on the "licence exempt" 2.4ghz frequency, which is CE compliant
throughout the EU. The wireless system has an unobstructed transmission range of
approximately 100m. Going through obstacles reduces the range, however as a general guide
you should be able to transmit approximately 30 metres and through 1 or 2 normal house walls.
We have a page here on the differences between analogue and digital wireless, there are pros and
cons with each system.
- Wireless refers to how the Video and Audio is transmitted. I.e. there is no cable connected between the bird box and
the TV. However, the bird box requires power to run the camera, transmitter and infrared, it is powered through
the supplied 12V DC power supply and 10m cable plugged into the nearest mains socket, e.g. shed,
garage etc. (if 10m is insufficient then 10m extension cables are available).
It can also be run from one of our Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery Packs.
- The wireless signal will be blocked by metallic objects, e.g. a metal clad wall.
- Not all wireless systems are the same. Wireless cameras must operate on the 2.4Ghz band
to be legal, 1.2Ghz wireless cameras are illegal to use in the UK. Our 2.4Ghz wireless systems use
the highest quality components to maximise the range and signal quality. Some companies may tell you
wired is better than wireless, what they mean is they have not been able to perfect the wireless system.
We offer both wired and wireless, there are advantages and disadvantages to both systems.

flexible - can be quickly moved from one TV to another quickly and easily

channels you can switch channels on the base to view the signal from four different cameras
