What You Need to Know About Bushnell’s Wildlife Trail Cameras
Choosing the right wildlife trail camera can be an overwhelming process. With so many options and features, it can be easy to get lost in a sea of options. Before you can start shopping, you’ll want to consider a variety of questions, including:
- Why do you need a trail camera?
- Will you be using it to monitor your local trails or wildlife?
- Are you considering a trail camera for security?
- Do you need a trail camera with audio?
- Will you need a solar-powered trail camera?
Once you start to nail down why you want a trail camera and what you will be using it for, you can check out various features that suit your needs. So, when discussing wildlife trail cameras, what are some other frequently asked questions?
Yes! Many trail cameras are indeed motion activated and can be set off in a variety of ways. For example, the Bushnell Impulse Cellular Trail Camera has an adjustable Passive Infrared (PIR) motion sensor that is activated by a 0.2-second trigger. With this particular device, once the sensor is triggered, the ultra-fast dual processors can take 1 picture-per-second and even allow for live camera views from your phone.
Nowadays, many wildlife trail cameras are considered wireless. So, for them to work and allow you to view live feeds of your trails, you need to have a source of power and a way to retrieve that data wirelessly.
The easiest way to think of a wireless trail camera is to think of it as a sort of hybrid between a traditional camera and a cell phone of sorts. This means that your device will have a SIM card and a data plan. Your plan and its details will vary by where you purchase your wildlife trail camera and who their data partners are.
If you choose to go with a traditional wildlife camera, then you don’t have to worry about a data plan. However, you will have to wait and see the images/videos once you bring the camera’s memory card home to your computer for viewing.
