Unlike other wireless trail cameras, users won’t have to purchase monthly data plans because media is instantly sent to mobile device via WCDMA/GSM network.

Unless a picture or video has been taken, the user will not be alerted. When this happens, the camera uses the multimedia messaging service center (MMSC) or GPRS to deliver the information. Phone MMS sends images to mobile phone, while Email GPRS sends images to an email.

In order to receive the data, user must first open MMS and GPRS service from their service provider by getting in contact with them. An unlocked 3G or 4G SIM card that supports MMS and GPRS data business is required for the camera to work. This is a huge advantage for people that are interested in using their camera outside of the United States.

With other brands, you receive images by purchasing monthly data plans, but Scoutguard trail cameras are different as they work on GPRS network, where the user is only charged for the amount of data that’s being transported, not for the time that the unit is online.

After purchasing the user needs to download a set up program for the camera. Instructions for this software are found in the last page of the user’s guide that comes with the device.

The amounts of batteries also differ to other manufacturers on the market. The MG983G-30M uses eight (8) AA high density – high performance alkaline or lithium batteries, while the MG883G-12mHD can use between 4-8 batteries.
