I have 4 888's and been wondering the same...

I have 3 Covert wireless cameras and was wondering how they compare

My only worry is batteries....the Moultrie Powerpanel works fine but sometimes they stop working and a wireless camera will use alot of batteries

I used their old system, when they were with AT&T. Worked great, had a few problems with the cameras after they were 4 years old or so. Called Moultrie up and they sent me free replacements. No complaints here.

I know you can update the camera settings but can you use the reformat option remotely to clear the camera card if it's full?

How much are you paying a month for service? And how many pictures a month are you getting?

I don't want to give you the wrong info on this. I am positive that I can delete pictures from the app, but I am not sure if it actually deletes them from the card or just from the online camera profile because I have a big card in (I believe it is 32 GB) that has a bunch of videos from another card on there as well as the pictures that have been taken on this one. I just went through and deleted a couple of hundred pictures and will see if it removed them from the card and get back to you.

I have the small plan ($13/month) and get between 4-12 pics per upload (one upload at 1pm and one at 1am) I would say. So, about 240ish pictures a month.

Bringing this TTT since I'm researching this option. It uses the verizon network which is what works for my spot and is also cheap! Curious to hear updates from those using.

I ruled it out after I found out the total camera cost was similar to my Covert's and the plan has really no benefits

Hmm, I have a compatible camera already so I'm only looking at $200 hardware.

Edit: found the plan pricing.

I was a bit nervous about trying to accomplish setup at the lease today but it went easy. I downloaded the camera firmware update on a blank SD and updated the camera first. Everything connected as it was supposed to and I have a bunch of test pics. The small plan was gonna come out to $12 and change monthly.

Well I guess time will tell and I really won't know how effective this system is until I pull the card. Moultrie says it is set up correctly but I'm not seeing as many pics as I expected. Could be my feeder not spinning but I doubt that. Could also be that the timber co is in there spraying and has scattered the critters. They hung a sign on the gate notifying of Herbicide application for the next month.
Anyway, I like the app and its very simple. Got 6 pics tonight.

Just an update for anyone interested. I'd say the solar 12 volt battery is a must for this system. My camera ran all last summer and through the fall season on 8 lithium AA but the USB transfer to the modem drains them in a week.

Ran into a little glitch with it this weekend. It sends pics at 10:30am and 10:30pm. Default I guess and I don't get to pick the time, just weather I want once or twice a day. This is for battery life I guess.

Anyway, I was waiting for my upload Sat night and got an alert saying I had 125 pics for upload which was over the limit I set. It gave me the option to proceed and I selected upload but have not seen anything since. I went to settings and bumped the upload limit to 160 but the camera has checked in twice since and still not uploaded. This is aggravating.
