Wireless (Wi-Fi) trail cameras often mislead consumers into thinking they operate the same as cellular trail cameras. Specifically, cellular cameras capture a photo when motion is detected and can immediately send that photo to the user via a cellular network. As of this date, we aren't aware of a Wi-Fi camera that can detect motion, capture an image and send it automatically to the user over a Wi-Fi network. However, some Wi-Fi trail cameras do offer one distinct advantage. That is, they allow a user to view & retrieve photos without physically opening the camera as long as they are within Wi-Fi range (30' +/-) The camera can be placed out of reach and safe from theft, yet still be accessible via Wi-Fi.
