Sends images direct to your phone or email address!
This camera trap is from the Ltl Acorn 5310 series with 1080P video recording (with audio) and 44 infrared leds (for increased night vision range over the 5210 & 6210 series) but this model, 5310MG, also has the ability to send pictures to your mobile phone or email address when triggered (via the 2G mobile phone network).
Customer support for all of our Ltl Acorn cellular models is looked after by Ron Bury of www.ronburyswildlife.com – Ron is the leading technician for the Ltl Acorn cellular cameras within the UK.
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 Panasonic Eneloop Pro 2500mA Rechargeable AAs for use with the Ltl Acorn Cellular Cameras.
The cellular Ltl Acorn cameras have all the features and functions of the standard models but with a built in modem, SIM card slot and an antenna to give the camera to ability to transmit images when triggered by movement/heat change.
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 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.
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!
