I purchased two cameras/caps and am testing them out. I haven't fully deployed them yet, but I took them out to see what kind of range I could get. I was getting .2 to .25/mile in hardwood/pine forest, when just strapping the home to a tree and walking with the remote in hand. I'll probably need to add another to get the pictures back to a place where I can easily pull cards.
One thing I would suggest before getting one is to pull up the manual for the camera and the cuddelink system and read through. There are some limitations on bandwidth, and depending on how many pictures you get a day and how many cameras you deploy, you could create a backlog and may have to change settings to only send a certain amount of pictures back. So, in some cases, you may not be able to get all of the pictures back to the home camera, which kind of defeats the purpose a bit. Kinda irks me that it wasn't mentioned on the website, but I'll probably not run into that with what I'll ultimately try to cover and the amount of cameras I plan to deploy.
One thing I will say is that this is a large camera and a single color like most cuddebacks and sticks out like a sore thumb. If you have an issue with theft, I would suggest mounting it high and camouflaging it. A few picks below of the cameras after applying mossy oak graphics to them.
Also, not to say it would happen, but it is possible to use the cameras to locate each other. There is a signal strength meter, so if someone were to steal one and had enough knowledge, they could track down every camera you had, at least it could get them close to each. If they could add password protection on these things, could easily solve that issue.
Just a few observations I've had since getting them last week...
