Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I extend the Hawk Eye beyond its 100 feet of cable? Yes, the Hawk Eye can be extended out at least 1000 feet, by daisy-chaining a series of our 100' extension cables, which we offer for sale (Item #BHSC103EC). Extension cable is available at checkout.
Our Hawk Eye video camera comes with a 100-foot cord, but if you're like alot of people, your birdhouse is 102' away from the house. You have three options. Move the tree; move the house; or buy our 100' cable extension. Our FREE advice . . . buy the extension!
How difficult is it to hook up the Hawk Eye cams? It really couldn't be easier. Simply hang the birdhouse, or attach the Hawk Eye to a post overlooking a feeder; run the cable into the house, plug the audio and video plugs into the appropriate RCA jacks (video-in and audio-in) in the back of the TV. Plug in the power and sit back and enjoy.
How do I get the cord into the house?
Just drill through the nearest wall, and run the cord through. Of course you must be sure to avoid any electrical wires or water pipes, and be sure to calk the hole shut.
Your spouse isn't too keen on that idea? OK, then run the cord under a door. Most have a 1/4 "+ gap between the floor and door, which is sealed with a flexible plastic or rubber weather strip. Most doors will easily close with the cord running beneath them.
That won't work? How about through a loose fitting window jam? That won't work? Do you have a sliding door? There's quite a gap between the sliding part of the door and the permanent, non-sliding side. This is sealed by a rubber gasket or flap through which the camera cord can easily be pushed. Make sure the cord is then attached to the floor or baseboard so that it does not fall into the track the door slides in.
