Wild Game Innovations Encounter Camera ($150)
To say trail camera technology has evolved in recent years would be an understatement. It’s pretty amazing that we’ve gone from large boxes we hang on trees that produce grainy, barely-identifiable images in low-light — cameras that endlessly eat batteries and memory cards — to svelte little devices that will stream live images and video directly to your smartphone with instantaneous notifications. If you’ve heard of these technologically advanced game cameras, but aren’t sure where to start given the constant bombardment of marketing speak, allow us to show you a very solid option — the new Wild Game Innovations Encounter 2.0 Camera.
Wild Game Innovations’ new Encounter 2.0 Cellular Trail Camera adds high-quality, high-definition 26-megapixel images and 720p HD videos (without audio) to a downloadable app on your smartphone or tablet in real-time. It captures movement as far as 80 ft. away from the unit with the help of four 850nm infrared LEDs and less than a half-second trigger speed. Images are delivered in 16:9 ratio format to Wildgame Innovations’ HuntSmart App for easy viewing.
The HuntSmart app’s Artificial Intelligence Management (AIM) System organizes and analyzes the captured images to provide information on species, geolocation, and much more. Setup is quick via a QR code, and it’s free. Cellular functionality is compatible with Verizon Wireless and AT&T providers and operational anywhere cell service is available in the U.S. or Canada.
