I am now a spy! I am able to spy onto my garden from my PC Monitor any time night or day … This is because the prices of Infrared cameras has plummeted and they are now the same price as ordinary digital cameras. These wonderful technical toys for adults, offer some unusual facilities. They can be used inside or outside … and set to view wherever you place them but give you the option of taking a still or moving shot. The camera has motion sensors with an additional option of an automatic emailing facility that sends still shots anywhere in the world.
This picture was taken remotely at late dusk … it was quite dark … note how dead things like wood, roof tops, brick, pots, and so on all retain their natural colour whilst living things such as the grass on the lawn and the trees and bushes have turned a magical shade of pink!
This is how the Infrared camera looks from the desktop monitor. It’s amazingly clear and as there is a motion sensor on the camera it means that every time there is a movement from a bird or animal in the garden, the camera will automatically take a picture of it and all for just a few pounds … :)
