This system is interesting. You deploy a wireless black box unit at a convenient location on your property. You can then connect up to 10 different cameras to the black box unit using wireless technology. However, the cameras have to be within 500ft of the black box unit. So if you wanted to put multiple cameras within a 1000ft diameter circle, it would be pretty cool. That's just over 18 acres of total coverage. The pictures from each camera are transmitted to the black box unit, so the idea is that you wouldn't have to disturb any of your camera sites. You just pull the card at the black box unit to check all of your cameras. Neat concept, but I don't think I have enough trail cam sites that are close enough together for this to be of use to me. I'm guessing it may not work well if there are any decent sized hills in the way. Plus, it's probably more than I would be willing to spend.

That is a neat idea. Be great if it worked well, but like you said, probably a lot less distance in the hills of East TN. Really, so far, there is not a good, reasonably priced option to going to cameras and swapping sd cards yet.

BuckeyeCam has been using this type of wireless technology for years. Their systems are far more powerful (transmission distances) but also rather pricey.

yeah this system has a limited range of 500 feet from the base unit. I don't know of any cameras I have that are set up with in 150 yards of each other.
