Ltl Acorn Trail Camera with Encryption
Ltl Acorn have now released (as of January 2019) a trail camera with encryption.
We have been asked about this many times over the last 12 months as many local councils, that use the trail cameras for security surveillance in fly tipping and anti social behaviour hot spots, require a feature which means that if the trail camera is stolen the thief would be unable to view the images stored on the SD card.
Ltl Acorn have developed this encryption feature for the 6310MG and 6310WMG 2G cellular trail cameras initially.
The 6310MG+E and 6310WMG+E (the +E denotes that the encryption feature is built in) cameras are set up to send an image to the users email address when triggered by movement & heat change within the camera view. This image will still be sent as usual and the recipient will still be able to view it but the image is still stored on the SD card inside the camera. It’s this image that will be encrypted so if the camera or SD card is stolen, the recorded images will not be able to be viewed unless the thief has the decryption software.
Ltl Acorn plan to roll this encryption feature out with their 3G models too in the near future.
It’s also worth noting that at the moment the encryption is for images only, not video.
