    Game cam technology is changing

    New technology is coming for your standard trail cam, and its affordable which is a great feature.

    When the CELL-LINK by SPYPOINT, arrives on shelves in the spring of 2020 almost every current trail camera user will have the opportunity to take advantage of the digital scouting tools SPYPOINT has developed.

    SPYPOINT CELL-LINK Adaptor
    Trail camera users can connect the CELL-LINK to the cameras they are currently using via the SD card slot, regardless of manufacturer. In a matter of moments, customers can turn their traditional non-cellular trail cameras into the most advanced digital scouting tools anywhere. The CELL-LINK can also convert your current cellular camera to SPYPOINT to take advantage of the affordable photo transmission plans, including the FREE 100 image plan.

    The CELL-LINK will transmit photos directly to the free mobile app, where scouting tools like the SPYPOINT BUCK TRACKER filters and FULL-HD Photos on Request transfers have led the industry in performance and value, and where new features for 2020 like mapping and weather integration are set to make SPYPOINT users be the best hunters they can be. These new app upgrades will be available for CELL-LINK or SPYPOINT cellular camera users later this spring as well.

    “The goal for SPYPOINT in 2020 was to remove every possible barrier for hunters who want to be as efficient, educated and successful as possible,” remarked Natalie Gatien, Vice-President of Marketing for SPYPOINT. “We don’t want past trail camera purchases to exclude hunters from being able to take advantage of the SPYPOINT EXPERIENCE. The CELL-LINK is the bridge that allows more hunters to step into cellular trail cameras and advanced digital scouting, without needing to scrap the products they already have.”

    The CELL-LINK uses the standard SD card slot on almost any traditional non-cellular trail camera, not just SPYPOINT models, to transfer the images to the CELL-LINK unit itself, which then transmits the photos via the LTE cellular network. Like SPYPOINT LINK-series cellular trail cameras, the CELL-LINK will be available in two carrier models. The Nationwide model will connect to most any national carrier network carrier with the exception of Verizon, which can be connected to by purchasing the V model.

    Because photo transmission plans and other details are managed right in the SPYPOINT mobile app, and not connected to a personal cell phone plan, hunters have the flexibility to choose the CELL-LINK carrier model that delivers the best cellular coverage at the location the camera will be used. SPYPOINT users can have a mix of Nationwide or V model devices in their account, based on the needs of the locations where the camera is placed, maximizing flexibility and making things as easy to manage as possible.

    Gatien concluded, “the CELL-LINK is affordable, easy to use, and delivers the full compliment of digital scouting features in the SPYPOINT EXPERIENCE. This really is a game changer.”

    The CELL-LINK will be available at retailers in April, with prices as low as $59.99. To learn more about this and other SPYPOINT products, visit www.spypoint.com.

    That's brilliant marketing by being able to use existing trail cams. Heck this would even make a pretty good security system for your shop, barns and gates to fields.

    Pretty interesting concept, hope it works out. My uncle tests hunting products out for various companies, reviews, etc. He tested 5 Spypoint cell cams and had trouble with everyone of them. Hopefully they get the bugs worked out.

    The spypoint cams I've been hearing about have some issues as well.
    I hope this works out because I've got several really nice game cams I'd like to continue using.

    Yet again you have to have cell service. Cell service is garbage around here.

    I have tried a Snyper cellular camera and a Spy Point. The Spy point was much cheaper at the checkout counter but nothing but problems since. It eats batteries like crazy. I have tried hooking it up to solar but wont. Have two buddies with the same Spy Point and they have different issues and can't get anywhere with customer service. I bought a year of service so I will play along for that long but will not buy another until they are more proven.

    I have two Spartans that run great although they don't pick up the same number of pics that the standard trail cam that sits right next to it does. That's why I'm hoping this spypoint that is just a repeater will work with that system.
