How do I choose a photo trap for observing animals?

Photo traps are mainly used for hunting or observing animals in their natural environment. Their discretion and silence make them less disruptive to wildlife and less likely to frighten off game than a human presence. With communicating photo traps, you can be alerted as soon as a photo or video is captured, by sending an MMS, SMS or e-mail.
There is a wide range of technologies to suit your needs. Learn how to compare the different devices to get the photo trap that’s right for you!

What are the features you need to know about camera and camera traps?

To help you see things more clearly, let’s take a closer look at the different features that distinguish camera trap models.
First of all, camera traps differ in the way they store and send the images they capture. There are three main types of photo trap:

  • those with memory card storage (SD or SDHC),
  • those with a SIM card internet connection
  • and those with a built-in WiFi connection.

What’s more, some models are equipped with a photovoltaic solar panel for recharging, while others run on rechargeable batteries. These criteria can play a decisive role in your choice of camera trap.

When it comes to specific features to look for, there are a number of things to bear in mind:

  • The presence of a display screen and its size;
  • The resolution of the image sensor and the image quality available for photos and videos;
  • The range of the PIR motion detector and night vision flash (if fitted), taking into account the angle of detection;
  • The number of photos taken in bursts, the length of time available for videos and the shutter speed so that you don’t miss an animal passing by;
  • The number of programmable time slots for time lapse mode;
  • The options for viewing photos and videos: via an application, storage on an external memory card (SD/SDHC card) or sending them by MMS/email (several telephone numbers and email addresses possible);
  • …etc.

As you can see, there are plenty of criteria to choose from to get the hunting camera you need. At NUM’AXES, we recommend just one thing: compare!

How can a photo/video trap detect the presence of an animal?

Our photo traps are equipped with PIR motion detectors with a fast trigger speed, ensuring that you won’t miss an animal passing in front of the camera. Depending on the model, the PIR sensor, which handles motion detection, can be set automatically or manually. When the manual setting is offered, you can refine the motion detection from low to high.
What’s more, day or night, our devices are fitted with black LEDs that are invisible to animals, ensuring discreet, non-intrusive observation of wildlife.

How do you set (or even hide) a photo trap effectively?

When it comes to setting up your photo trap, a few simple instructions can help you get some great shots. But remember that our cameras are specially designed to be discreet and silent, thanks in particular to the black LEDs and the absence of sound when the camera is triggered. So they’ll be virtually undetectable to animals.

What are the requirements for an animal photo trap to be effective?

There are a few pre-requisites to be met if you want to capture a successful photo.

  • Make sure you place the camera in an open area where there is no source of heat in the camera’s field of vision.
  • Install the camera facing north or south to prevent sunrise or sunset from triggering the PIR sensor.
  • Keep any branches and foliage away from the camera that could obscure its field of vision.
  • Point the camera towards land rather than water, and avoid mounting it on a fragile tree likely to move in windy conditions.
  • Adjust the detection sensitivity of the PIR sensor to reduce the detection distance at night and avoid nuisance triggers.

Of course, these guidelines are only indicative. Ideally, you should carry out a number of tests to check that the camera is triggered correctly and that the shot is of good quality.

Hunting: choose the right photo trap for your outdoor activity

Photo traps are generally used to monitor property and people. Useful for outdoor wildlife photography, photo traps have many other possible uses.

What are the uses of outdoor cameras and which is the best photo trap for hunting?

For hunters, scientists, private individuals and professionals, outdoor cameras have a number of specific uses.

  • For private individuals: by installing a camera trap in your garden, especially if it is not fenced and is close to a natural area, you can enjoy photos and videos of animals that venture onto your land.
  • For professionals: camera traps are perfectly suited to surveillance of property and people. For construction professionals, for example, outdoor cameras can be used to protect against theft of materials or intruders on building sites.
  • For amateur and professional scientists: if you’re a nature enthusiast, a camera trap will enable you to observe, study and analyse the habits and behaviour of wild animals, right in their natural habitat. It’s a great way of getting close to certain species without disturbing them.
  • For hunters: hunting cameras are invaluable for your outdoor activities. They allow you to collect data on the population of a species, monitor their territories or analyse the movements of game on a regular basis.

Which hunting camera do you need? Compare the cameras before taking the plunge.

For hunters, the photo trap is the perfect choice, because it’s discreet and silent. Day or night, thanks in particular to its black LEDs, the photo trap captures the shots you need to count and analyse the game in a forest or in your hunting enclosure.
With motion detection fine-tuned to your needs, the photo trap is the perfect ally for your outdoor activities. Depending on the model you choose, you’ll have a night camera with a fairly wide field of vision. The shots you take will enable you to track certain animal behaviours and obtain data effortlessly.

More specifically, we recommend the 🛑XXXX🛑 model, the latest from NUM’AXES Protection.
