4G Cellular trail cameras have become the mainstream model on market in the past few years. We’re going to look at the reasons why this is and why it happened, if you’re currently thinking about buying a trail camera, it would be best to choose a 4G cellular model.
If you have any further questions after reading, get in touch with the WildGuarder team by email or contact us via our Facebook page. Without further ado, let’s get started with the top 4 reasons you should choose a cellular trail camera…
Reason No.4 – Check trail camera anywhere
Most people should have the same situation – when you are setting a camera on a timer, posing for a photo, only to look at the viewer later and find out it didn’t works. As frustrating that can be, but you can easily reset the camera and get the shot you need.
Unfortunately, it’s not so simple when it comes to trail cameras. You may take a bunch of test photos or videos to ensure the camera is working well, leave the camera for a few days or weeks, and come back to find that something went wrong in the meantime and the camera has hardly managed to capture a single photo or video or nothing!
Batteries run out, wrong settings, even hardware failure or effect of temperature, however good electronic devices are, they’ll always be liable to some kind of malfunction. In the case of trail cameras that could mean a huge chunk of personal time wasted.
That’s what makes 4G cellular connectivity such an important feature for trail cameras. Because you can immediately receive the photos and videos that come from your 4G cellular trail camera, you can monitor the camera 24/7 and be confident that it’s working well as it should.
Reason No.3 = Change trail camera settings remotely via the APP or SMS Text Command
This is the next reason to choose a 4G cellular trail camera . Not only can you view the photos the camera is taking to ensure it’s working, you can also change the camera setting.
For example, if you prefer to the higher photo resolution, or the timer has been set for the wrong time of day, or perhaps the motion detection sensitivity is too low so you’re getting very few wildlife photos, at the press of a button you can change these settings, just as easily as if you had the camera in your hand!
Find the picture above, you will see how this works. When you get a 4G cellular trail cam, you also get a free iOS or Android cell application included. All you need to do is scan the QR code in the user manual, download it to your phone, connect your 4G trail cam and you’re good to go.
Reason No.2 – Receive trail cam photos on your phone or computer
So, you’ve got the app on your cell phone and you can remotely control the settings of the camera, but you can do even more.
From the comfort of your own home or your office, you can now view all of the images and videos that captured by your 4G cellular trail camera. It is definitely sweet!
But you don’t even have to check the app and take a look of your images. You can also set up your 4G trail cam to send the images to your phone messages and to your email inbox, so you can keep constant track of what your camera is recording.
The remote control application gives you access to all of your images and videos in one convenient method. But where exactly are your photos and videos being stored?
Reason No.1 – The Function of your 4G trail camera
At the end of the day, trail cameras are a means to an end, and shouldn’t be an end in themselves. Ideally, you would like to spend as little time as possible actually dealing with trail cameras: walking miles out in the wilderness to collect the photos, worrying about whether they’re working well or not and getting the right kind of images, swapping out broken SD cards etc.
What trail cameras are really all about is enjoying the great experience from hunting & nature. That is why 4G cellular trail cameras are such an important advance in trail camera technology, they save your time and let you do more of what you really love.
