If you want to make sure you get the best view of the little critters in your bird box or hedgehog house, make sure to add a daytime LED light.
Our popular wildlife cameras are already capable of capturing amazing close-up views of the animals, but there is a chance that the box itself is just naturally a bit dark inside. Our cameras can get past this thanks to the built-in, invisible infrared lamps (that don’t disturb wildlife), but night vision is always monochrome, black and white. If you want to see the full, colourful detail of the baby birds’ growing feathers or the sprity spikes of your huddled hoglets for example, it is highly advisable to shed some extra light in the box with an additional daytime lamp.
This lamp will be very subtle; it provides just enough illumination for the camera to record without having to use night vision. Importantly, it has a built-in photometer, which cuts off the LEDs when the ambient light levels drop. This means the light is off at nighttime, so it won't disturb the sleep cycles of your feathered or spiky friends!
There are other ways, but the best option for quickly adding the right small amount of extra daylight for more recording clarity, is simply to mount this small, natural daylight LED lamp inside the box. It’s much better than, for example, making a hole or window in the habitat, as that could expose the animals far too much and can cause overheating. Whereas the animals won’t even notice the tiny lamp, as it only comes on during the day when it is already daylight outside and it is natural for birds and hedgehogs to see light.
Our daylight LED lamp is designed to be fitted inside our wildlife habitats, such as all the bird boxes, hedgehog house, hedgehog feeding station, and owl box. One lamp will be more than enough to provide sufficient lighting for colourful, pin-sharp recordings.
Have a 12V camera? Choose No power supply in the menu above. If you have a camera of another voltage choose 12V DC.
Please note: it is highly important to install the lamp during the setup of the box and camera, not after when the animals are already settled in! Disturbing a nest will most likely cause the parents to abandon the nest, resulting in a horrible situation which you won’t want the babas to experience, nor watch on screen! Moreover, it is illegal to disturb nesting animals, so we urge you to install everything well BEFORE any fluffies first come a-visiting.
Small lamp providing subtle light, purpose-built to be installed inside of a bird or hedgehog box
Improves Camera Footage
Allows wildlife box cameras to record without using night vision, improving image quality and colour recording
Safe for Birds and Hedgehogs
As it uses energy-efficient LEDs, the tiny lamp will not disturb nesting birds or hedgies
Uses true white LEDs providing accurate natural daylight colour balance
Night Time Cut-Off
The built-in photometer automatically switches the light off when ambient light levels drop. This turns off the LEDs at night, so it won't disturb the sleep cycle of the chicks or hoglets
Includes an optional 12-volt power supply or can be used in-line with our 12-volt cameras. Just connect it in between the camera and power supply.
