The Official Green Backyard App Is Launched!

Embrace the wonders of nature and wildlife with our newly launched Green Backyard App! Designed specifically for bird box cameras, this innovative app allows users to watch birds effortlessly on their phones and tablets from the comfort of their homes. In this blog, we’ll cover the fantastic features of the Green Backyard app, explain the recent improvements and address common FAQs.

Green Backyard App

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to witness the beauty of nature up close. The Green Backyard App was developed to offer a seamless and accessible way to observe birds in their nests, providing valuable insights into their habitats, breeding habits and unique behaviors. Downloading the Green Backyard app is as easy as spotting a robin in spring. To get started, simply visit the app store for your device (iOS or Android), search for “Green Backyard” and click Download. Within moments, you’ll have a ticket to the captivating world of birds right on your phone!


Whether you are a seasoned bird watcher or just beginning to explore this captivating hobby, the Green Backyard App is your gateway to the avian wonders of the world. Here are some of the amazing features that make this app stand out:

1.Live Streaming

Our Green Backyard App allows you to watch birds in real time with high-quality live videos straight from your backyard, ensuring that you don’t miss a moment of avian action. You can stay updated with all the comings and goings inside the birdhouse –  the hatching of the eggs, feeding routines and even the squabbles among baby birds.

2.Motion/Continuous Recording

You can configure the bird box camera to record continuously 24/7, 365 or activate automatically when the motion detector is triggered and notify you with an immediate message alert so you can tune in at the right time. Additionally, you can even adjust the alarm’s interval, period and sensitivity through advanced settings to work at a certain time only.

3.Local Storage

You can securely save all your recordings to the mobile storage when a Micro SD card is inserted into the camera (up to 256GB but limited to SanDisk Ultra A1 type; compatibility issues may arise in other brands). Please note the memory card is set to automatically overwrite by default but you can configure it to stop recording when it exceeds the maximum storage capacity.

4.LED illumination

Monitor your birds even in complete darkness with infrared LEDs – automatically turn on when sunsets and refine image quality when the illumination drops below a certain lux level. Moreover, if you’re using the 2nd Gen WiFi bird box camera which is equipped with both infrared and daylight LEDs, you can also manually activate the white light whenever necessary.

5.Share the Joy

Easily share access to your camera’s live feeds with your families and friends by using your account or scanning the QR code in “About Device”. If you only want to share the recorded videos with other viewers, you can go to the Smart Device menu and select “Mobile Storage”. Then select the video clip you want to share, click the “Share” icon and you will see some options for which apps to share the clip to.


In our commitment to improving your birdwatching experience, we’ve made several notable improvements to the Green Backyard App:

No More Annoying Ads

We understand the importance of an uninterrupted bird watching experience, which is why the Green Backyard App is now ad-free. We believe that every chirp, flutter, and song should be enjoyed without any disturbances, making the absence of ads a crucial improvement for our users. Now, you can say goodbye to annoying ads pop-ups and promotional content that distract you from the main event and totally immerse yourself in the extravaganza of birdwatching!

No Cloud Subscriptions

We believe that the joy of birdwatching should be accessible to all without additional costs. Historically, cloud subscriptions have been a barrier for many bird enthusiasts, requiring ongoing payments to access their recorded footage, and the cloud service is even camera-specific and will be discontinued if the camera fails. Therefore, in response to user feedback, we’ve removed the costly cloud subscriptions, making it easier for users to store and access their bird videos and images.

Improved Loading Issues

We’ve optimized the app to resolve previous loading issues, ensuring a seamless and swift connection to your bird box cameras. This improvement enhances your ability to watch birds with minimal disruption. No more waiting around for buffers or glitches; the Green Backyard App allows users to enjoy live streaming and recorded footage without interruptions.

Our team at Green Backyard has worked tirelessly to provide the best possible user experience, making sure that you can connect with nature at any moment, any place.

  1. I cannot seem to get the new app to do anything based on motion. I have the new iOS app from the App Store. I see live image just fine. When I go to Local Record, there are no red lines and all local recordings are Regular. It does not matter what settings I try to change on Record Settings or Normal Alarm. Please help. Thank you.
