Congratulations! Now that you have your 7000 series camera, continue reading to learn what you will need to get started, or watch our short video below!
You should mount your camera in an area with good AT&T or Verizon cellular coverage, depending on which carrier your camera is associated with. Don’t worry – it doesn’t matter who your personal cellphone provider is. To check AT&T or Verizon coverage in your area, click here.
Please be aware that some roaming agreements allow carriers to use towers they don’t own to provide coverage in rural areas. In these cases, connected devices – like cellular trail cameras – are not covered. This is why your phone may have a good signal in some rural areas, but your cellular camera may not.
While having good coverage is important, you’ve got to have a strong signal, too. Keep your camera clear of dense shrubs and trees, low-lying areas, and other natural obstructions that can block a signal to your modem.
