Garden PTZ camera

This monster PTZ camera is an incredible bit of kit and has been loaned to my by Hikvision UK.


PTZ stands for 'Pan, Tilt, Zoom' and I can control this camera from my PC. It has an incredible capabilities, that I am only just getting to grips with! With up to 35x zoom and IR capabilities up to 500m, it gives me immense opportunities to monitor large areas, with a single camera. It can be programmed to move around the space, so I will be experimenting! It will mainly monitor a selection of bird feeders in the day and the fox field at night, but there are lots more projects planned for it!
