Nest Box Live is a revolutionary ‘smart’ nest box system that has an 8 megapixel camera and is connected to the Internet. It has many features such as a smartphone App, the ability to live stream the camera feed to social media and sensors to monitor temperature and other conservation data.
Power and data are provided by a single Ethernet network cable that can be up to 100m long. That cable must be connected to your broadband router. If a wired connection to your router is not possible, all models of Powerline adapters are compatible that can provide a wired Internet connection using your home’s power sockets.
No, and there is a simple reason for this. To have a good Wi-Fi connection for a high definition camera system like this, you would need to be within 5-10 meters of your wireless router to have a stable and uninterrupted connection. There are many nest box camera systems on the market that advertise ‘Wi-Fi compatible’ but these are susceptible to drop outs.
There is an App that can run on almost all smartphones, iPads, iPhones, Android devices and web browsers. Everything is controlled via the App.
Prior to being on general sale, we will be launching a Crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to set up production. This is a first generation product of its kind and getting it from the prototype stage to full production is quite a challenge for new startup companies like ourselves. We are aiming to launch the campaign towards the end of 2021.
A crowdfunding platform that is built for creative projects like this. If people like a project, they can pledge money to back it and make it happen. If the project reaches its target funding goal, then all backers’ credit cards are charged at the deadline. Kickstarter is based on an all or nothing principle, which means that if the funding falls short of the goal, then none of the backers’ cards are charged.
Yes of course it is safe. Backers are only charged if and when the Crowdfunding goal is reached, if the goal is never reached then no money is taken from your account. If for whatever reason we are unable to deliver the product after that, you will receive a full refund.
Once the Crowdfunding campaign has ended (and we hopefully reach our target!) We estimate it will take between 12-18 months to set up production and get the product shipped to the first customers. This is not like other large online retailers where you order and receive the next day.
At the moment, there is a single person running this product and they take care of development, hardware design, programming, social media and much more! We are anticipating that the team will grow as this project moves forward. If you would like to work for us then please drop us an email!
