It generally can be frustrating to find that your property is damaged. The vulnerability that people feel when they discover the damage caused by an intruder is real—whether it is an animal or a human. More and more owners are beginning to use trail cameras to help them identify violating small animals or saboteurs. Trail camera with motion detection function are usually the simplest solution to many security issues. It can provide you with undeniable evidence of what happened to your property (day or night), so you can sleep peacefully.
What the trail camera can do
The trail camera is a motion activated camera installed in a sturdy waterproof housing.Most of these photos are stored on SD cards,the user retrieved the SD card later to see what happened to their property. Most trail cameras even tag photos with useful information (such as date and time).
Unlike surveillance systems, trail cameras do not always record. They work on outdoor motion sensors,they only record when motion is detected. Once triggered, they will start to take photos or record videos. Then they returned to the sentinel state until they found more movement.
When it comes to unwelcome human visitor, the problem is even more serious. It is easy for people to see camera's light and know where it comes from.
These several functions of trail cameras to prevent the above mentioned problems
Also called a red light camera, a low light trail camera uses infrared light to take night pictures. Most living things can hardly see infrared rays, including humans. People are unlikely to notice that infrared light illuminates the neighborhood, but these cameras will still announce their presence.
PIR function from the trail camera. The movement of animals or humans through PIR-or the difference between their body temperature and the ambient air temperature-is what triggers the camera to take a photo.
Avoid false triggers
False triggers can drive trail camera owners crazy, but they are usually the result of one or two common installation errors. First of all, avoid pointing the camera in a direction where direct sunlight will affect the PIR detection of the camera. Second, the light from direct sunlight will dilute the photo.
Another trick is to mount the camera on a solid object. There is no problem installing the tracking camera on the tree, just make sure that the tree is strong enough not to sway in the wind.
After choosing a location for your tracking camera, take some time to secure it properly. Most have loops for straps or connections for anti-theft cable locks. Likewise, it doesn't matter how the tracking camera is installed, what matters is that it has some form of anti-theft function.
The method you choose to protect the trail camera does not require bulletproof to be effective. It doesn’t matter if the thief can remove it with tools, but they should at least need tools. The most important thing is that you force them to take time to do this, and time is not something that intruders usually like-especially if they know they have been recorded.
If you have trouble with animals or people destroying your property, the first step to stand up is to find the culprit. Trail activated cameras can provide you with the evidence you need, while keeping you and your equipment safe from being discovered.
