Ever wonder what goes on in the garden after you’ve gone inside? Well, technology has caught up with your wish to view life in the garden when you’re not there. Brinno’s GardenWatchCam is a low cost, easy to use, weather resistant, time lapse camera designed to go in the garden. The GardenWatchCam mounts in the ground and uses a high quality lens to target your chosen gardening area, or a single bloom.
The GardenWatchCam is designed to take photos at specific predetermined time settings chosen by the individual user. The user has the option of choosing between 7 different time settings.
The first 6 settings and are chosen simply by opening up the camera and turning the switch to the desired time (ranging from 1 minute, 5 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 4 hours, 24 hours), when the power is off. The seventh custom setting is created by the user by inserting their USB Flash Drive into the Garden Cam which downloads our software onto the USB Thumb Drive. The user then inserts the USB Flash Drive into their computer and follows the directions on their screen allowing them to customize any specific time setting that they want to have their GardenWatchCam take photos at.
The GardenWatchCam has a switch that gives you a close up shot 18 inches away. This feature allows the user to capture big colorful time lapse photos of a particular flower or object that is 18 inches away from the GardenWatchCam.
The GardenWatchCam fastens securely into the top of a custom designed flexible mounting stake for insertion the ground.
The GardenWatchCam is designed to blend into the outdoor environment with its pleasing green tones and smooth lines….no boxy shape to jar the eye. Weather resistant, it is designed to withstand driving rain and morning dew or high noon heat.
Smart enough to know when to stop, the GardenWatchCam will not take photos when it is too dark out, in fact, it sleeps between photos thereby enabling remarkably long battery life. One set of 4 AA batteries will last for up to 6 months of hourly garden photos.
USB Flash Drive storage is the most popular storage medium worldwide. Almost everyone who uses a computer has a USB Flash drive.
Easy to set up and use, the camera flips open, the drive inserted, time lapse setting chosen, camera switched on, closed and located and will work silently for months.
