After considerable research, I bought a networked trail camera last year. I use it to monitor a site more than a thousand miles from where I live; it communicates over a cell phone network. In order to accomplish that, I had to buy a SIM card for the camera to connect to the cellular network. I also had to subscribe to the SIM card company’s data plan and subscribe to a website where the photos are sent. Wish I’d waited a few months, because I’d have bought a Bushnell Trophy Cam. Why is the Bushnell camera better? First, you don’t have to buy a SIM card and hope it works with your local cell company. Bushnell has purchased data on the AT&T network, making it the first network-approved wireless trail camera. The SIM card and first 30 days of data are free. Then it’s pay-as-you-go – no contracts. Second, you can run the camera from an iPhone or Android—no need to go through a third-party web site. Third, the images transmit faster; and fourth, it’s backed by Bushnell, a company that’s been making dependable products for outdoor sports enthusiasts for more than 60 years. If you need to monitor a remote hunting spot or other site and don’t want to have to wait until you retrieve your camera to see what it’s been recording, take a look at the Bushnell Trophy Cam. It’s competitively priced at $599 and offers more than any other networked trail camera out there.
