Intersesting, the covert code black was the worst cameras I ever run, by far. The Tactacam has plans as cheap as $5/mo. When you add multiples, they get cheaper. Also, a good feature is if you have 10 cams and you are on the 250 pics for $5 you get 2500 pics. If one cam uses more than 250, and another is less by the same amount you don't go over. You more or less have a pool of 2500 pics for the cams to all use. I go with the $8/mo plan, 500/cam. Additional cams are $7.50 after the first one. I thought they would be limited use on my farms due to cell coverage. They have a powerful antenna or something, they work in places with near perfect signal where my phone won't do anything. I agree, the Cudde isn't a bad system. If I lived on the farm and I could constantly tweak them I could have done better. They like being hung low, which is another problem on a farm that is flood prone.
