Trail Cameras That Send Pictures to Your Phone
Cellular trail cameras utilize cell towers to take and send pictures directly to your phone or email. The below models are all capable of this.
Each MMS version trail cam that sends pics to your phone will need it's own cellular plan with the intended provider. That means, if you have 3 cellular game cameras, each one will have a separate monthly plan (or sim card). You can't add multiple cameras to a single plan.
Hunters go to extreme lengths to minimize this problem, leaving them out for many weeks at a time, only pulling SD cards in the rain, and carefully designing visitation routes to avoid spoiling the area.
Wireless and cellular trail cameras offer the opportunity to avoid those potential pitfalls by utilizing today’s amazing wireless technologies. With 2G, 3G, and 4G cellular networks, you can now have trail camera pictures automatically sent your phone, tablet, or computer. Wireless trail cameras allow you to utilize an existing Wi-Fi network, or create their own local Wi-Fi hotspots to do the same.
If that sounds awesome, that’s because it is! There is a catch though, and that is the price tag attached to these game cameras. They are several times more expensive compared to even the best traditional trail cameras. The goal of the rest of this article is to educate you on the benefits and drawbacks of the technology, and review the best wireless and cellular trail cameras so you can make a good decision.
