If you want to make sure you get the best daytime colour images of the little critters in your bird box or hedgehog house, make sure to add our Daytime LED lamp. The lamp illuminates your nest box during the day to boost light levels meaning you get the most vivid colour images from your camera.
Which one do I need? If you have a 12-volt camera choose No power supply. If you have a camera of another voltage choose Include Power Supply. Please check the Compatibility tab for more information on which camera you have.
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. For cameras of other voltages, you will need to run a separate power supply (power cable extension cables are available from the drop-down menu).
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.
Which one do I need to choose?
12-volt cameras | Choose No Power Supply
Product codes beginning with NCIP3WF, NCIP2WF, NCIP9WF, NCTV2.
Our WiFi Bird Box Cameras are 12-volt cameras and the lamp can be powered 'inline', therefore choose No Power Supply before adding to the basket.
8-volt cameras | Choose Include Power Supply
Product codes beginning with NC701, CMOSNC.
Some of our cameras are 8-volt and therefore the lamp needs a different power supply to power it. Please choose Include Power Supply before adding to the basket.
HD Wired IP Camera
Product codes starting NCIP2
If you are powering the camera using the included PoE power supply or via your own PoE kit then you can use the DC 12V connector on the camera to power the lamp. If you are powering the camera using a standard 12-volt power supply you can power the lamp inline. In either case, choose No Power Supply before adding to the basket.
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 night vision but this produces black and white images. If you want to see the full, colourful detail of the baby birds’ growing feathers or the spikes of your huddled hedgehog, for example, we recommend shedding some extra light in the box with an additional daytime lamp.
This lamp provides plenty of illumination for the camera to capture colour daytime images without having to switch to night vision. Importantly, it has a built-in photometer, which switches of the light when outdoor light levels drop. This means the light is off at nighttime, so it won't disturb the sleep cycles of your nesting animals.
Using this lamp is much better than 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 and hedgehog houses. One lamp will be more than enough to provide sufficient lighting for colourful, pin-sharp recordings.
