We don't just provide solutions for watching birds: our fluffiest spiky friends get attention, too! That's why we've put together this Hedgehog Box WiFi Camera kit, which includes our 3rd Gen 1080 HD WiFi Bird Box Camera, allowing you to get up close and personal with visiting hedgehogs in your own garden and learn all about their quirky behaviour. The camera connects to your WiFi network, so you can watch the footage live on your smartphone, tablet or PC anywhere with an internet connection, and show your friends and family just how adorable hedgehogs really are when they potter about in their home.
Our hedgehog box eco-roof is made of recycled composite materials with the added benefit of being completely waterproof and rot-proof. It's built with a sloping roof for water drainage along with additional grooves on the top of the side panels. The lid is hinged and lockable. Ventilation is provided by a clog-proof, narrow gap under the roof along the front.
You can choose between our quality wooden hedgehog boxes, handmade in the UK, from the options below.

First night we set up the Hedgehog bog, we had 5 separate visits and at one point, 2 hogs, snuffling away.
We knew we had hedgehogs but, because of the power supply, had to put the box in an area we had never seen them - they found the food no problem! after gorging themselves they often take a nap in the box so we are hopeful they might hibernate there too.
The camera was easy to set up and we have found a way of displaying the hogs on our TV too.
We also have a mouse and a fat slug who visit.
My only criticism is that the motion sensor is either "off" or oversensitive. If the sun goes behind a cloud or a slug wanders in, it records so it must be disabled during the day.
Very happy with our purchase overall.
