Cell Trail Cam doe Home Security?Contributors to this thread:

Should say “for” not “doe”. Sorry. Has anyone had experience with this? My son wants to use camera/video at the end of his long heavily wooded property’s driveway 1/4 mile so if he’s gone he’ll know whats happening. Kind of like a cellular RING doorbell on steroids. Is there a FAST cellular way to accomplish this so the data comes across quickly instead of waiting on video til it’s too late? WiFi won’t reach that far. Also open to other solutions if anyone has input. The radio shack radio chime works but goes off too often with deer crossing the drive during the night and of course no images. Thanks!
Any cell camera should send pictures in minutes.Tatacam works fast and well.
Second for Tactacam
Looking for instantaneous like RING to avert a potential problem if such is available.
My Tactacam sends pics to my phone around 2 minutes later
My brother's Tactacam is a little slow, (minute to 90 seconds behind) but works pretty good.
Bigfoot trail cameras out of Poncha Springs, CO. My friend has a 1/4 mile driveway and we have been sitting at his house and he will get the notification before they get to the house. Will work with most major cell carriers and have 3g and 4g capabilities.
Listen to the test on chasing giants and good luck finding tactacams if you wanted one.You might talk to the guys at trailcampro.com
Yes, I know what it is. I have no personal experience with this kind of device. But I went on a trip with a woman with this device in her home threshold. We went to the canyon, ran there, and took pictures. And at some point, she wanted to show me her house. She turned on the phone with the app from Vivint.com. And we watched her kid playing outside, and her husband was lying on the grass under a tree. She called them, and they waved their hands at the camera. It looked really cute. As far as I know, you can always watch the shooting online. But records are also saved there and automatically deleted after a month.

What’s the going price a Tactacam?
I use the Reolink Go PT, works good for a trail camera also. The Reolink Go works, but it doesn't rotate like the PT.
Walmart had a whole stack of Tactacams last week. Believe they were $139.
Eufy has a wifi based system; Mine is solar powered and no fees.It is holding up well. S 40 system is the one I have,connects to phone and home PC.
I've used home security cameras. You can buy a directional wifi antenna to extend tange a long ways. It runs through your home internet and notifies your phone instantly with video or pics. No cellular plan. I think most of the cameras run off a rechargeable battery. Overnight charge should last a month or so. Add solar for extended life.

Been using the Moultrie edge when I’m gone. It’s amazing what comes up the driveway
Tactacam on my driveway too. 100yds from the house. I know they are here before they park.
