I get text and email notification from the app as well as normal incoming text message and email alerts. The phone beeps at me when I get a picture. So you are alerted and can view the picture from you phone, computer or both. You want to know when someone pulls in the driveway while you are back at the food plot this works well although depending on the carrier there can be a delay but most mine are within a 30 seconds of the event.

A well place camera will only need attention when the batteries need changing which depends on temps, signal strength, and use. I have gone as long 6 months and 1000s pictures on a set of batteries.

The App has signal strength and battery condition indications.

If your wife has the app on her phone and is logged in to your account she will also get the notifications on her phone.

If you want the best game and security cameras hands down that last years itís Reconyx. Iíve had many many different cameras that have had rave reviews. They all got returned. They just didnít compare to Reconyx. I have Reconyx 600 game cameras that are 10 years old and have been out in the woods for years. Made in the USA 🇺🇸. You get what you pay for..... This is a Reconyx XS8 Surveillance camera 700 bucks and worth every penny..

Mostly with trespassing to hunt/fish/ or ride 4 wheelers. I often give permission but there is a certain element that has no regard for the ownership rights of others and I refuse to let them have their way. I can't be there 24/7 but the cameras can.

This is last week from a different farm on top of Putnam Knob. I recognized the driver. He will be putting in waterbars and replacing fence.



 

And this picture came across this morning from another hill farm. I have more still cameras to check to see if I have a better mugshot. So yeah, the trespassing is bad  and a few more need to be drug into court. Problem is the judges too often let them by with a warning and court costs. They weigh the chance of being caught and a small fine versus what it costs to buy and maintain a place to hunt and figure its still a bargain even if they get caught.

Critical to do a "long format" of the micro SD card before installing and pays to bite the bullet and go with Lithium batteries although you could put off the lithium until after you see if the rig connects ok. You might try it with the camera door open first. The SD card cable thing can be finicky in some cameras. Hope yours hits on the first go!

I had coffee with a neighbor this morning and we were discussing the same topic. We are at the edge of a mile and a half private drive that rarely sees any outside traffic, but both of us are seasonal right now and the peace of mind to have some sort of cameras out while we are gone is a plus.  We do have nosey neighbors that are here year round so not overly concerned.  But he just purchased the Spartan GoLive and loves it.   I do like the aspect that you can query the camera for a live view anytime you want.  Data plans for the year aren't too bad, camera's are pricey, but you can put up to nine cameras on one data plan and pool the data if you pay yearly.  I ordered two with solar after seeing his setup.  

It is a pricey setup, but with neighbors nearby that I can call in an emergency, and a live camera, I'll rest easier during the off season for sure.

the spypoint cell-link adapter worked and sent images to my phone pretty quick, first try with both my old outdated trail cams. a moultrie and a stealthcam.  at least here in the house with service.  im hopeful itll be as good out in the bush. 

thanks again SB

Cameras shoot well, but not as effective as a Winchester rifle.

Careful Jim, our country doesnít believe in rights to defend yourself or property, pretty sure the only means we have by law to shoot someone is if they already took a shot at you, but if they were robbing you mid night and then threaten you with a knife, you can not shoot them. 
Not that many people see it that way around my parts though, and itís common knowledge locally there are crazies that will shoot at you, we live different lives out here than in cityís, yet we are governed to the standards of which city liberal hive minds believe we should be. I canít even walk with a side arm
Pistol on my own land. Oh well, can of worms with me etc.

When you are placing the cameras they like to be in the "shade". Direct sun can cause false triggers even on the expensive cameras.

Deployed trailcam at my mineral site yesterday and had too much horizon in the frame.  Wind came up and bam, pic a minute because of the leaves.  Burned up the 100/month freebie immediately. The only spypoint membership that makes economic sense is unlimited at $15 a month.   Is that per transmitter or per subscriber?  

  I have to go back shortly and aim it further at the dirt and drop the camera to 10 second delay.  


Can this thing transmit video or just still frame? @stavebuyer

now if the camera could be like the cuddle link system and use WIFI instead of Cellular
the cuddle link system allows for the cameras to link together up to 5 miles. it does not use WIFI so i cannot connect to them with the computer.
I use 16 Gig cards and put the cameras serial Number as the name of the camera. that way i know which camera is missing and can report it to the Police. has now helped yet.
my ideal trail camera would have the following:
Cellular and WIFI
long battery life
not look like a trail cam
4K photos and Video
yea i know, dream on

The data plans are per transmitter. If your going to pay $15 a month long term your better off biting the bullet and going with one of the higher end cameras.
I have 8 of the Spypoints at different farms and so I bought the Insiders Club which gives a discount on all data plans and ups the free photos to 250 per camera. It is a learning curve. We had the same wind here and I didn't have any issue. Also some cameras allow you to change the trigger level. Deer or people usually can get by with the lowest detection level.
One good thing about Spypoint is you could spend the $15 for one month to get your camera placement settings lined out and then you will know how much data you want.
