Bird Buddy is one tough cookie! It is designed to withstand significant damage and various adverse weather effects.
Resistance to external damage
Bird buddy is made from ASA plastic which is known to provide high outdoor weatherability and retains gloss, color, and mechanical properties in outdoor exposure settings. Due to the sturdiness of the material, Bird Buddy is almost certain to survive smaller impacts in case of a fall; rather than break, it will simply snap apart, which means it can easily be re-assembled.
Squirrels and any other larger visitors to the feeder will have a hard time destroying it, too. The Gorilla Glass® casing of the camera lens is scratch-resistant, antimicrobial and non-toxic. Along with the BPA-free material of the feeder, this means that no critters will be harmed if they attempt to chew or peck at any part of Bird Buddy.
Due to the durability of the ASA material the Bird Buddy feeder is able to withstand various severe weather conditions. Its resistance to UV light and extreme temperatures will ensure that the surface of your Bird Buddy feeder remains smooth and pleasant to the touch, all the while retaining its vibrant color and functionality.
The central camera module that houses the camera and the battery is able to withstand temperatures ranging from -5°F to 120°F (-20°C to 50°C). When outside of the operating temperature range, the camera module will simply go dormant to prevent potential damage to the battery. It is also detachable so you can easily take it out and safely store it in case of extreme weather.
The camera module passed production tests and acquired a rating of IP67. This means it's perfectly protected from dust or sand entering the module and that it can also withstand heavy rain. However, we still recommend that the module itself is not completely submerged in water for longer periods of time.
