I have considered doing this many times but my own personal experience is that you need a site that previously had a successful nesting box first. The last 2 boxes I put up have had no use for nesting by birds so far, although 1 has been used as a winter roost I think. A system that allows all the equipment to be fixed to a removable lid and a wifi link and battery power might be helpful too, so I can move the lid to where the birds end up choosing as a nest site. Too many natural nesting sites here I guess.
