The Ltl Acorn 5210MG wildlife camera is part of the popular 5210 trail camera series but with the cellular module & antenna fitted which allows the sending of pictures to your email address.
This is very useful if you need to know quickly that something could be taking place in your subject area.
Our cellular trail camera models from the Ltl Acorn range come with after sales support from Ron Bury of www.ronburyswildlife.com – this website offers a wealth of information and knowledge with regards to the Ltl Acorn range of trail cameras.
Batteries are not included but battery choice is vital for the performance of your camera, do not use Duracell and do not choose any batteries with a capacity lower than 2500mA. We recommend Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries, or if you want to use rechargeables then opt for the Panasonic Eneloop Pro 2500mA Rechargeable AAs for use with the Ltl Acorn Cellular Cameras. These are the two types and brands that we use on a daily basis for testing trail cameras and so can vouch for their compatibility and reliability.
The Ltl Acorn cellular trail cameras are easy to set up and we have provided information in one of the tabs above giving you an example set up using a 1pMobile SIM card and a Gmail email address. We recommend using a 1pMobile SIM (which uses the EE network) and a Gmail email address as it allows you to follow our simple set up instructions and it’s how we use the Ltl Acorn cellular cameras whenever we’re testing in the office or out in the field. 1pMobile PAYG SIMs are cost effective and their website is very easy to use and to make top ups when needed and you can also receive email alerts if you’re SIM credit is getting low.
Sending the images to an email address rather than by SMS to your mobile phone is usually much less expensive too, so definitely recommended. You can easily access your emails on your smart phone these days anyway!
Standard trail camera functionality too..
Despite being a cellular trail camera and so built for sending images out to email, the Ltl Acorn 5210MG can of course perform all of the standard functions you would expect from any trail camera. It can be set to record whenever movement / heat change is noticed within the camera view and the recorded video footage and/or images will be stored to your SD card (required, 16G max – not supplied).
You can use the Timelapse mode to set the camera to record an image or video at set intervals regardless of whether it has been triggered by movement. For example, every 60 minutes.
The 5210MG has two timers so you can instruct the camera to only record between set times of day/night.
Password protection, built in LCD screen for playback & set up, time/date stamped recordings etc etc, it’s all there just as with the non cellular Ltl Acorn trail cameras.
