Digital Borescope

Product Description

Have bats in a crack, bat house, wall, or other hard-to-reach place? A digital borescope can slip between baffles in a bat house to provide full color, up close views of bats. The camera end is waterproof, features low wide-angle distortion, huge depth of field, and contains onboard white LED lights for illumination.

A 16' semi-rigid cable connects to a lithium-ion battery that may last up to 4 hours. The battery end contains a dimmer switch for the LEDs and a WIFI transmitter that creates it's own hotspot. Connect to the camera hotspot with your iOS or Android device's WIFI and you can view the live stream at a smooth 30 frames per second, take snapshots, or record video.

Because the LED lights are white, this tool is appropriate for active inspections, not for leaving in a roost for long periods of time as the illumination may deter bats. For use as a passive camera trap, please see our BatCam product which uses infrared illumination.

    • Wireless WIFI inspection camera works with Android devices (Android 2.3+), as well as iPhone IOS system (iOS 6.0+).
    • Wireless hotspot can be detected by your device an additional 50' or more from the transmitter, so no worries attaching the camera to a pole and going higher than 16'.
    • The end of the 16' cable is transmitter. As long as the transmitter remains outside the crevice, you will pick up it's signal 50' or more. (We got well over 50' indoors thru walls in a wood frame house, so expect longer transmission in the open.)
    • The 33' version is otherwise identical except with a longer cable to the transmitter. Handy only if you need to push the camera 30'+ into solid rock that would block the transmitter's signal.
    • Up to 1920x1080 still photo resolution (manufacturer claims 1600x1200 but this was not possible in our tests)
    • Up to 1280x720 video resolution
    • Record live video in AVI format, available to be stored on your devices upon enabling the app to be accessible to your Photo App. PC or Mac compatible. No audio is recorded with this camera.
    • Massive depth of field: clear, in focus image between 1.5'' up to 15.7''
    • 16.5' cable, 8.5mm diameter waterproof camera using 6 adjustable LED light
    • The semi-rigid cable can bend and hold it's shape
    • Lithium battery, capacity up to 1800mAh which support 3-4h working time without LED light on.
    • BCM includes a storage pouch for this camera...16' of cable can get out of hand.
    • In the box: (1) digital borescope w/ battery, (1) storage pouch, charging cable. Charges from any USB charger or port (not included).

    Note: repeated disturbance such as a camera probe entering a roost may cause bats to abandon a roost. For intermittent use only (do not move a probe on a regular basis, set it once and refrain from moving it.)

    BCM doesn't sell anything we don't use ourselves and can vouch for personally. John has personally tested a few models and found what seems to be the best product at this time. Below is raw video recorded at 1280x720.

    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

    Ask BCM a Question
    • It says you can record live video in AVI format and store it on your device, is it also possible to stream the live footage from the camera to a device during use to see what the camera sees in real time?

      It only streams to your (one) smartphone/iPad, not to another external monitor. However you could mirror the iPad to a second display in one of several ways if you need to.   But yes, you watch the footage directly on a an Android/iOS smartphone; that’s what you use to see what’s going on. Then hit the record button on the smartphone app when you see something you want to save.

    • Can you use this device on bluetooth only? I.e. in areas without signal?

      The device does not use bluetooth. It generates its own WIFI network which you connect to using a smart device which can be 50' away, maybe more. It does not require internet or cell phone service, it makes it's own little private network just for the camera with a password.
