Learn More About Wireless Camera Traps
Take camera trapping to the next level with our wireless trail cameras. They send images via the cloud, MMS messages or email, from potentially anywhere in the world. The SpyPoint Link cameras are controlled via a smartphone app. As a result, they're incredibly useful tools for almost real-time wildlife monitoring and protection. They're also used for security purposes.
They can be set up anywhere in the world, as long as an adequate signal is available for your mobile network. With a good mobile network, images generally take 10 seconds to 2 minutes transmit. 4G SpyPoint cameras are even faster.
Please Note: You need a SIM Card from your desired network provider (we currently recommend EE) to send images from the camera. Prices vary between £200 - £400. However, the SpyPoint Link cameras come with pre-activated SIM Cards, and the option of free data plans - with no extra cost.
We regularly use these cameras for real-life wildlife monitoring. Their security applications are also useful, such as for fly-tipping or workshop security. The following options have unique features that may peak your interest:
- The SpyPoint Link cameras are pre-activated for a super-fast set-up. Free plans are also available
- The SpyPoint Link Micro LTE is a new, small, and versatile cellular trail camera at a very affordable price
As these are essentially a camera trap + a mobile phone, the cost is higher than a conventional camera trap - prices vary from around £180 to £400.
You would also have the additional cost of your mobile network provider or camera plan to consider.
We use them...
For real-time wildlife monitoring, and occasionally for the security of other equipment.
We use wireless cameras in collaboration with Bioterra, the Zoological Society of London's Instant Wild programme, Northern Velebit National Park and Biokovo Nature Park in Croatia. Find out more about our work there over here.
