Thread: Remote surveilance

    Remote surveilance

    Has anyone ever tried anything like this for monitoring deer:
    http://www.wivisystems.com/bin/ws8.dll/home?snoid=6278

    I've just installed a salt lick site on my permission and will hopefully put more out over time. I was just looking at the options with regard to monitoring it remotely to see what's going on without actually sitting there for hours, which is not always practical.

    I have seen the motion-sensitive digital cameras in the bushwear catalogue etc and was tempted by one. Then I thought about a live webcam, then I could keep an eye on it whilst sitting at my desk at work!!!

    The prices vary widely and I wondered what was worth paying for and what wasn't.

    What are you all using, if anything, for this sort of thing and what sort of results ahve you managed to achieve?

    That did cross my mind - the location would have to remain top secret though!

    There is a Swedish Wildboar feeder here - http://www.jagareforbundet.se/webbkamera/

    I keep thinking it must be possible to link a motion sensor to a cheap digital camera, so that every time it sees movement it takes a pic, with date and time.

    the trail cameras look great but im not sure I want to spend 200+
    must be the Yorkshire in me.

    Try this, its 140, night vision and will send you a SMS text and picture on your phone if anything moves in range. Need to build in a camo waterproof box with a battery but you wont beat that for versatility.

    Results!

    My mate in Sweden has finally got round to buying a remote camera and has put it up near one of his Wildboar feeding stations. The initial results are very interesting. Make is Cuddeback http://www.cuddeback.com/


    Badger stealing the pig's bread.




    Fox and Badger working together.


    Fox watching a Roe buck.


    Moose.


    Pine Martin.


    Wildboar eating apples.

    He has got a huge catalogue of photos already and we have assembled the times and dates into a chart, which is showing some really interesting patterns in the feeding habits with changes around full moon etc. It should give us a really good idea of the best times to be out there. Obviously there are peaks of activity following feeding days. The number of species that are making use of the site is quite staggering. We even think we have a picture of a Lynx and have sent it off to some experts to see if they can confirm it.

    I've now put one on my letter to father Christmas!!!! I'll have to be good.

    Obviously there won't quite be the same number of species over here, but it's the fact that a record of times and dates can be accumulated so easily that really interests me. Should be useful for baiting up for charlie round the pheasant pens too!

    I'll keep you posted....................

    Also good to get an idea of feeding patterns as you say.
    Good to have if you have got a new patch to see where there is the most acctivity

    I've got a Wildview infrared Xtreme digital scouting camera. 2.0 mega pixel. No flash uses 24 emitters to illuminate the coverage area.
    Uses 'Burst mode' technology, multiple imaging or action videos.
    Wow, I just copied that off of the box.
    I have opened it to see if it was all there and read the instructions.
    it says it is easy to use switch set up with time and date but it is far too technical for me.
    If anybody wants to make me a sensible offer, including postage they are welcome.
    My son bought it for me and I think he paid about 120 so I would expect about 2/3rds would lever it from my hands!!
