Technaxx launches a smart bird feeder

Technaxx launches a smart bird feeder

Bird-lovers will appreciate this inventive wildlife camera. It sits inside a bird feeder, so you can attract birds and watch them feed. It also has a water dish, and a hook for hanging suet cakes or seed balls.

The TX-165 from Technaxx is a full HD Birdcam, a wonderful way to record and observe the feathered friends via a short focus 6-15cm lens and a large viewing angle of 100°.

Now if you have ever tried to take a photo of a Blue Tit or House Sparrow you will know how these little things do not stay still, resulting in plenty of blurry photos and bare branches, this camera can shoot slow motions videos with up to 25FPS, allowing you to get a clear view with plenty of detail.

The TX-165 can be set to take video, photo, video and photo or slow motion, it has a built-in microphone and speaker, the microphone I can understand but I’m not sure what you would use the speaker for, perhaps imitating bird calls?

The camera comes with a few mounting options, a mounting belt, wall mount and railing mount, this allows you to test out a few different locations to see which is the most popular.

The camera is set into the feeder with the whole thing measuring up at 19L x 15.2W x 22.8H cm, there is a removable food container that will hold up to 150g of bird food, there is also a hook that a suet ball can be hung from and a small removeable water basin at the front.

There is a PIR sensor (~20cm) and IR range (~50cm) with 940nm LEDs for night recordings, scratchproof and shockproof auto IR filter and the whole unit has a IP56 rating, there is also a 2.0” TFT LCD display (528×220) and the 4x AA batteries required for power are included.

It can also be powered but external DC6V/1A power lead, but this is not included, there isn’t an SD included either (compatible with up to 512GB MicroSD).

The main body of the Birdcam could be a little more robust but the images it provides are clear, even at night, the video functions can eat through the battery quite quickly so investing in some high quality rechargeable are a good idea.

The range of this camera are obviously limited so you’re not going to catch every visitor to your garden but the up close and person detail it does capture is rather sweet, animal lovers will get a real kick out of this.
