We know, it can get a bit confusing. We sell a lot of different models of cameras with similar names, and it can be difficult keeping track of your specific model code, so we have put together this little list for our most popular bird box and wildlife cameras.
It is organised by connection type, but there are pictures as well to allow you to scroll through and just find the camera you have.

NCIP3WF (3rd Gen), NCIP2WF (2nd Gen) or NCIP9WF (1st Gen)
These models look nearly identical, like in the picture. The easiest way to tell the specific model is to look on the box the camera came in, the model code will be on the back, or there will be a tag on the end of the cable on the camera. If you don't have the original packaging any more, try to remember the time you bought the camera, and check the email that was sent to confirm the order.
If it was purchased before December 2019, you almost certainly have an NCIP9WF. If it was purchased after December 2019 you almost certainly have an NCIP2WF.
If it was purchased after December 2020 then it is probably an NCIP3WF. The major difference is that the 3rd Gen camera uses the official Green Feathers app, whereas the 1st and 2nd Gen cameras use either iCSee or XMEye.
If you are still unsure, you can find out by putting the camera into AP mode and looking at the name of the Wi-Fi network which the camera broadcasts.
- The NCIP3WF (3rd Gen) will broadcast a network called 'SmartLife-0000'
- The NCIP2WF (2nd Gen) will broadcast a network called 'IPC_xxx'
- The NCIP9WF (1st Gen) will broadcast a network called 'BEYE_xxx'
If the camera is already connected to your Wi-Fi you will have to completely reset the camera to put it into AP mode, so don't do this unless for some reason it is crucial that you find out the type of camera it is.
GFIP220BWF (2nd Gen)
These cameras are white and significantly larger than the other WI-Fi cameras we offer.
GFIP1BWF (1st Gen)
This camera was released in reduced quantities, it looks the same as the GFIP220BWF.
NCIP2 (2nd Gen)
These cameras are green, and have an Ethernet port on the end of the cable. They also do not have an SD card slot, unlike
the Wi-Fi models.
NCIP9 (1st Gen)
These cameras look very similar to the NCIP2, except they are black in colour. They also have an Ethernet port on the end of the cable, and do not have an SD card slot.
The CMOSNC7G is one of our most common wired analogue cameras. You can identify it from the small shape only shared with the NC701G, and the three cables coming from it to allow for power, video and audio connections.
We no longer sell this model of camera, but it can be identified by the black colour, square shape, and the three cables coming out of it for power, video and audio.
This is the successor to the NCF15EA. You can identify it by the black colour, square shape and the cable trailing from it. This camera does not have a microphone (though one can be attached) so by default it only has a cable for video and for power. There is also a toggle stick where the cable splits into two.
This looks similar to the NCTV205I; you can tell it apart by the green camera and the built in microphone, with a cable for audio alongside the cables for video and power.
This camera is the big brother of the NCTV205I and NCTV2A. This camera can output video at 8MP, or 4K quality! It also has a built in microphone.
This is the odd one out of the bunch. Its distinctive shape is due to the camera being fully waterproof; ideal for mounting outside in any kind of weather. These have been released as black and green versions.
You can identify these cameras from the distinctive small size and the small antenna. There is only one jack on the camera to allow for power to be supplied, because it sends the wireless signal to the silver receiver box.
Battery powered trail camera
This is the only model of trail camera we currently sell.
