This HD infrared MMS DVR wildlife camera will take photos or videos and then send an email or MMS picture message to your PC or mobile whenever it's motion sensor is triggered. It has built-in GSM mobile messaging that uses a standard SIM card and is ideal for capturing shots of wildlife, fly-tipping, vandalism or any sort of covert surveillance in remote areas where mains power or an internet connection is not practical.
The remote wildlife camera takes 8 AA batteries and has a super low standby current (0.3mA) giving an incredible 3 months standby battery life (dependant upon activity) and an Ultrafast trigger of only 1 second.
The wildlife DVR has a motion detection & infrared with no flash to disturb the animals or alert the trespassers / fly-tippers etc. It can take date & time stamped 5MP digital stills or full colour VGA video and store the data on an SD card (not included). You can then view the images via your TV (using a AV lead) or PC (using a USB cable or the SD card directly).

Initial set up was relatively easy once one had understood the menu and sub-menus Review by Lucy Pinney
Initial set up was relatively easy once one had understood the menu and sub-menus. It is necessary to be very precise with the data input for set up of the MMS for your network. Once it was all set up, I was pleased with the results. Photographs were adequate on the mobile phone and very good on the computer.
I would have to say that the alerts sent to the mobile and/or email are somewhat spasmodic and by no means happen on a regular basis as they are supposed to. I have mine set up to send a daily report to both my mobile phone and to an email address. I do get a report but generally to either the mobile or to the computer but rarely to both and not necessarily everyday! Much as I wanted to be alerted as soon as it took a picture (it is set up to be active during the night only) the cost of sending MMS (approx 25p/shot) would make this very expensive on the mobile tarif if there was a lot of activity, hence setting it up just for a daily report.
I had intended originally to install the camera hidden from sight up a tree but the need to check the settings on it and/or change the SD card on a regular basis means that it is necessary to have easy access to the camera. I have had to locate the camera within an adapted security box at the entrance to the premises in a place that is easily accessible and therefore I have no doubt that the camera could become a target of theft itself at some stage. It would be helpful if there was someway to check/change the set up via the computer/mobile rather than on the camera itself.
On the whole, the unit is doing the job it is supposed to but not quite as reliable as it should be. I find it a cost effective as a basic method of security in comparison to other forms of wireless home security which can alert you via a mobile phone and does give some peace of mind.
