Campark T85 Trail CameraThere are lots of scenarios where you want to keep the location of your trail camera hidden. Sometimes you might be using it on public land and don’t want unethical people to steal it. Other times you might want to use it as a security camera and don’t want to tip off potential trespassers or thieves as to the camera’s location every time you want to check what was captured on the memory card.

So How Can You Keep Your Camera’s Location Hidden?

One way would be to get a cellular trail camera so pictures could be sent to you automatically (you can read our Best Cellular Trail Camera Reviews and Buying Guide if you are interested), but they are expensive and have monthly fees so they can use cellular networks.

If you don’t want to have the added expense of a cellular trail camera there are a few things your trail camera should have that will help keep it hidden and luckily the Campark T85 is one of those cameras that checks all those boxes.

Important features to look for include:

  • Camouflage exterior (most trail cameras already have this)
  • No Glow IR flash
  • Ability to connect wirelessly to other devices (to see and download pictures as well as to change the camera’s settings)

6 Tips to Prevent Trail Cameras From Having False Triggers

False Trigger

It is frustrating to check the SD card on your trail camera only to find out that the memory card is filled up with pictures and videos that have no subject in them. If you are asking, “Why does my trail camera take pictures of nothing?” your camera is the victim of false triggers.

Bushnell defines a trail camera as having a false trigger when the passive infrared sensor (PIR sensor) thinks that there is motion and heat in front of the camera lens and captures an image or video when in fact there is no subject in the image.

Having a trail camera taking pictures of nothing is bad enough, but to make matters worse, these false triggers drain your trail camera’s batteries. This can require you to be constantly purchasing new batteries for your camera regardless of how energy efficient it is.

Luckily, we have a list of the top 6 easy things you can do to help avoid false triggers with your trail camera.
