When you use trail cameras,the important thing that you will find trail camera is easily prone to theft or destoryed, you might be wondering how to use it security.

Putting the camera on a high place, such as on a tree, etc., people generally do not keep their heads up when walking, especially in the wild, people will usually look in all directions for the sake of protecting their own safety.

Put it in a low place and it's easy to be spotte,which can be removed or destroyed with tools by people. Even encounter pranks.

Anyway,I found that trees are always a great spot for hidden trail cams.


Use the surrounding environment of the camera to disguise the camera. For example, if you want to install the camera in the woods, you can consider buying a green one before buying.

Or buy some camouflage patterns to help the camera blend with the bark on which you install it, because if you plan to leave the camera in the woods for a long time, the colors of leaves, bark, etc. may change when the season changes , use this little trick, you don’t have to worry about this problem anymore.

In this example, the camera in the picture is easy to spot:


It is also a good way to install the camera inside other objects. For example,the traditional place for a hidden trail camera is on or inside the garage. Find a low bush near the home but far enough away that it will give you enough depth to see the home. Then, hide the camera inside the bush (just make sure to keep the bush trimmed). 

Another better way is disguise your trail camera as a bird house:
Birdhouses are commonly found outside homes. If you place your trail camera in a coop, it won't get much attention by people.

It offers a high level of security from invaders and burglars. Wire-free trail cams are a perfect fit for this type of disguise.


The purpose of doing so many of the above methods is to prevent our cameras from being discovered and maliciously damaged, but it is difficult to avoid some deliberate people looking for other people's cameras.
In order to improve safety, we also need to find a way to make it difficult to damage or remove the camera even if it is found.

Some manufacturers will make the corresponding metal mounting box, locking mounting bracket, you can ask when you buy it.
