cellular trail cameras
« on: January 12, 2020, 07:39:27 PM »
     Anyone tried the new cellular trail cameras?  I'm seriously looking to try them but need more info. Any feedback would be appreciated.     I had a deer stand that was swarming with bucks this year but I didn't know until it was to late. A cellular camera would of been sending me pictures and I could of moved in and hunted it more or had someone in my hunting party hunt it.     THANKS

A buddy of mine uses spy point.   The pics were nice and you could control some settings via phone app.  I think it was only $10 or so a month for the service (there is a limit on number of photos without additional charge)

I still havent droped the trigger on one, cell service sucks where I hunt.

My brother in law uses a spypoint year round and just loves it. He sends me pics all the time when he gets them. Spypoint now has a new device that out now that will convert any trail camera to cellular, cost is around $70. It was introduced at the ATA show last week. You might want to take a look at them. I was impressed. I don't use them because I don't have cell service in most of the areas that I hunt. I wish that I did because it's about 150 miles from home to camp. Good Luck

I saw that new thang on Facebook and went to their page to check it out.  Stated that it hooked in to any camera through the sd card slot.  My question then would be how do you shut the old camera's door? Appeared to be a wire going to it from the transmitter device.  That would be my main question.  Waiting for a Youtube on it, so can see everything.
My Brownings have the sd card inside the water sealed door.
 
I was given a Browning Defender WiFi system by my wife for Christmas for behind our house, most of my Still Hunting.  It's OK, seems to be the Browning Defender App that I have the problem with most of the time.  My cellphone can see the camera but the App does not every time.  You first contact the camera with the Phone's Bluetooth mode and then switch over to WiFi to look at pictures and control camera.  All of this is with the Defender App on your cellphone or Tablet which is free on Google Play for Android (mine) or Apple for IPhones.

Let us know what you find out or purchase and test.

Thanks,
PJ

I'm starting to use them this year.  2019 my old moultrie 880's started dying off so I needed to replace some. I went with cuddeback this time around because they have a link system to link all their cameras together on one channel so you can check up to 16 cameras by just checking 1 camera and all this doesn't require a plan. This black friday I ended up buying two 2 packs of their cameras and when registered online they sent you a free cell camera but you also had to purchase a full years subscription of cell service for pictures, 180 bucks for the year gets you 2000 pictures a month. Now here is what I like about cuddeback, with their plan you can link up to 16 cameras together on one link system and have your home camera set up as the cell cam and you will get pics from 16 cameras off of one plan instead of like every other camera company you have to have a cell plan for every camera.
tank of gas: $50
hunting licence: $190
ammo: $20
getting to spend time with family and hunting buddies: priceless

That sounds like a much more reasonable approach NWIA, provided you can string them all together close enough to keep the communication links alive.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

Is it Spartan Cameras? 
They are out of Duluth, GA.  See them advertising all the time on my Facebook Hunting sites - NC Whitetail Hunting Site along with a TN Hunting Site.
Know nothing other than some hunters bragging on them.
