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. 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.
This 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.
Provide are fittings and attachments for easily installing the lamp into your box, including an adhesive sticker.
