Default Hamstercam

Now that I've moved the enclosure to the far back room I will not be able to keep on eye on things as easily as before.

So, I added a Hamstercam.

Will notify me as soon as he comes out. I'll be able to watch on my phone.



Has infrared, so even in the dead of night I can see what he's up to.

Cool.

That is a great idea. I have seen some clips of hamsters on cams and they are super busy at night. It is interesting to see what your hamster gets up to.

The company is called Wyze. Paid under $20 US around 5 years ago.

They were the first to offer a low cost security camera with cloud recording, motion sensing, infrared, full control from the phone, etc.

Newer models are out with more features and there's lots of competition now for the same market... so shop around,

It sounds very good - different countries probably have different manufacturers as well. Been really impressed with mine.

I have an Amazon Blink Mini camera. It's motion-activated and connects to an app on a phone/tablet. It even has two-way audio, in case I wanted to talk to my hamsters/gerbils remotely (but I don't because my voice sounds weird coming from the camera and it scares them!)

I've found it particularly useful when one of them is ill and I want to keep an extra eye on them. You catch many things you would never have known about otherwise.

I know what you mean about the sound being scary! I leave that turned off. I hadn't heard of that one from Amazon.

We also have a night vision motion sensor which we call hamcam and it is so reassuring/funny/interesting/fascinating to see what they are up to in the night when we don’t see them. We’ve had a variety of cameras off Amazon costing no more than 25 and they are all amazing for the money. Our Chinese ham called Rabbit had a fall the other day which thankfully she had no ill effects from (I was way more upset and shaken than she was) but it was great to see her at night doing all of her rabbity things and seeing she was ok x
