How to Choose the Best 4G Cellular Trail Camera?
When it comes to choosing the right kind of trail camera, there are some other features that you need to consider. In the following passage, we are going to highlight all of them for your convenience.

Indubitably, when choosing a trail camera you need to choose the cellular network that is compatible with your area. You wonít have a great time using your camera if it runs on the 4G cellular network that doesnít have any area coverage in your region. Therefore, whether youíre looking for 3G or 4G, make sure the network is available in your geographical region.

Since itís a camera, therefore, you will have to contemplate the power of the lens that it comes with. Anything over 12MP is good enough for short to medium distance imaging. If you are looking to go a long stance, you need to choose a camera that is 20MP or above. This way even in the dark, the images will be very clear.

PIR range
PIR stands for Passive InfraRed and it is a very important feature to take photos or capture videos in the dark or gloomy conditions. With this feature, your trail camera doesnít need to rely on any LED flash. If you want to be stealth, this is a must-have feature that needs to be in your trail camera.

The range of your camera when shooting in bright light is also very important. If it doesnít produce any clear images, there is no point to waste your money on such a camera. You need to be very careful in picking the range that your camera can cover when you select a product.

If you donít want any visual noise in your images and video then you must go for a camera sensor that is powerful enough to produce high-quality images even in low light conditions. High megapixels with high resolutions will provide you great photo quality.

But both these features add to the overall cost as well. Therefore, you need to balance it and go for a combo that works things out for you. For long ranges, 1080p is the right option while for short ranges you need to have at least 720p.

Trigger speed
Trigger speed is critical when a device is taking photos on the field. You donít want to miss any action and if the reaction time of your camera is slow; you will miss out a lot. So, if a camera has a high trigger speed then you can get several images in a very short period. Usually, a trigger speed of 0.1 to 0.5 seconds will work well.

This feature is directly related to the network and area coverage. If you have a good cellular network, you will get frequently notified by your camera as soon as it takes a photo. It is only possible when you have strong signals.

Usually, a trail camera is considered to be good enough if it notifies you on your phone or your computer within one minute after taking a photo. Of course, you can change it in the settings and make it more suitable according to your needs.

Most of the trail cameras run on AA batteries (either alkaline or lithium). And most of them require a pack of 8 to 12 batteries. If you are using a camera that comes with wifi or Bluetooth capabilities, it will consume more battery. Cellular trail cameras are slightly better on battery consumption. But in most cases, these batteries can easily last anywhere from 8 to 10 months.
