If you are familiar with trail cameras you already know that they can be expensive. Then if you want something like a cellular trail camera the price can sometimes be out of reach for people who are on a budget or for people who need to buy multiple cellular trail cameras. Then to make matters worse, cellular trail cameras are often large and are easily spotted by people who might steal or vandalize the camera.
In addition to the price of the camera, you also need to purchase a data plan in order to have the images sent to you. If you have multiple cameras or have a camera placed in an area with a lot of activity the price of sending all those images can add up as well.
