Bat Roost Survey Camera Bracket or Stand

Product Description
$150.00
Maximum quantity available reached.

This is a camera trap system for remote surveys for bat presence, intended to be used to monitor bat houses. Note due to fast changing advances in trail cameras, the camera must be sourced separately. Certain trail cameras will trigger on the heat of an animal investigating the bat house. The camera is particularly effective when a bat makes multiple passes before entering a roosts, such as is typical in the morning hours. The first bat pass will sometimes activate the camera, but will usually be too fast to be recorded. Usually within ~15 seconds the bat returns and will be recorded. We have come up with two different mounting options:

Option 1; The Bracket System. This  consists of a camera trap mounted to a bracket, which is clamped to the post the bat house is attached to. The purpose of the bracket is to get the camera a few feet below the bottom of a bat house, and ~6' horizontially from the bottom of the bat house. The height is required to prevent unnecessary upward tilt of the camera, which will result with dew collecting on the lens and producing undesirable "foggy" video. The horizontal distance has been shown in BCM tests to produce reliable triggers on certain trail cameras from small bats. A small stepladder or 3 step stool will be helpful for installing and servicing. The bracket arms can be unscrewed to help retrieve the camera or for transport if desired. A full size stepladder and an assistant may be helpful to initially frame the camera. The mounting bracket will clamp to any square or rectangular post of any size. The clamp may attach to round posts up to 2'' in diameter, but may spin/move on the post in windy conditions. This bracket might be a deterrent to vandals, who might otherwise need a ladder to fool with your survey.

Option 2; Camera Stand. This is a black aluminum telescopic 5- section extension stand that extends to 15'. It features heavy duty pneumatic dampening which helps avoid sudden collapses. Overall size collapsed is 46.6x5.5x4.4 inches and weighs 9 lbs. The mount at the top has a standard 1/4-20 camera thread stud and also 3/8. A swivel adapter allows the camera be adjusted. 4- Sandbags are included for stability (source sand or other material locally). The advantage of this method is that it may be used for other sorts of surveys as the independent stand can be placed anywhere relatively flat and staked or sandbagged down. The camera is easier to retrieve/setup and no ladder is necessary. There is no real way to lock down this setup and therefore it might be more prone to theft. 

Considerations and Limitations:

This bracket and any camera will sooner or later serve as a perch for potential bat predators and is not intended to be permanently installed.

Bats generally swoop into bat houses from the bottom, you may have better luck turning the camera vertically so the sensor covers that area more completely, but at the expense of videos being rotated 90°.

A camera cannot be easily locked to a structure in this configuration; you might consider signage to deter vandalism or theft in highly visible areas.

Recommended Camera Specifications. This camera is not wi-fi or cell network capable; recorded videos and photos must be downloaded from the onboard SD card. (Cameras are not sold by BCM, listed here for reference only):
