How the system works

Watch, record and enjoy. How does it work?
The system is very simple and easy to use. First place the camera and AV cable in nest box or wildlife habitat. Let the cable hang down the tree, along the ground or roll it up and place in a bag or tub to keep dry. When you want to examine the bird box or wildlife haven, just unroll the end of the cable, plug in the 12v rechargeable portable power pack. Plug in the AV cable into a hand held PVR. (Personal Video Recorder or DVR). You can then view or record the footage onto the recorder. You can leave it on the motion activation mode. It will record every time when there is motion in front of the camera.

This allows you to quickly view the camera, record clips and take notes. You can then move onto the next camera easily and quickly. Once you have recorded upto 4hrs of footage, you can then plug the device into a PC and download the footage to your PC, where you can edit it further.
