What is a trail camera? A trail camera, or game camera as it’s referred to by certain manufacturers, is a ruggedly designed camera especially for use outdoors. Primarily used by either wildlife photographers or hunters to facilitate the hunt and by making the location of wildlife that much easier.

Useful installation pointers
Listed below are some useful pointers on how to use your trail camera to get the best results:
- Mount the camera about 1.5~2 m high with the camera pointed at a slight downward angle
- Mount the trail camera facing north or south, not east or west, as the rising and setting of the sun could produce false triggers and overexposed images
- If you’re covering a trail, face the camera down or up the trail
- Clear out any brush or weeds in front of the trail camera. These can cause false triggers due to temperature and motions disturbances in front of the camera (especially on windy days).
- Check the power level of the batteries
- Make sure the memory card is properly inserted and have sufficient available space
- Verify time and date are correct.
- Make sure to turn the camera ON before you leave (switch in the ON position).
