I decided to expand on my cellular cameras and bought the Cuddeback celluar camera with three smaller satellite cameras. So far I have been very impressed the results produced from these cameras. It took a few minutes to fully grasp the set up features but once I had that figured out and tested them at the house, it was off to the woods to put them into action. The range between cameras could be a little better but it just depends on the lay of the land the density of the woods. I was able to totally cover an area of about 200 acres with the four cameras that I have. They all take pics and send them to what I refer to as the Mothership and then they transmit to my email and cell phone. The only negative I can see so far is that they don't send as soon as they trigger but you do get them fairly soon after being taken.

I bought the same starter pack and setup yesterday. 3 of 4 cams sent pics so far, but not sure what's going on with the 4th?

I have to admit that the primary camera may be the largest trail camera I have ever seen. I am considering getting the external solar charger for each camera but I am going to wait and see how long the batteries hold out. I can definitely see me ordering a couple more of the satellite cameras in order to cover a larger area. With the unlimited pics which I chose to do, it will not cost anymore to add them. That was the one feature that sold me on the CL.

Adding additional cams under one plan is what sold me too. I went with unlimited and if all goes well I plan on adding 2 more cams before season. I just can't figure out why 4th camera hasn't sent pic yet? It had good signal and I know there's been hogs and deer at feeder already.

From the pic you posted that is the 4th camera, if you set them up like I did. What is your chart showing on that camera as far as signal strength. I know it took mine about 7 hours before they actually started sending pics but once they did it has been non stop.

It's showing 20 on camera # 4. Camera # 3 is the one not sending pics and it shows 30. Report shows # 3 has taken 7 pics, but it hasn't sent any.

I have around 11-12 cameras. My "mothership" I'm lucky to have a camp house in the central part of the property where I can keep it hooked into power. The other ones, I've got either setup with the solar panel, the extended battery pack that changes it to C or D batteries(can't remember for sure if it's C or D) and then the others I just run the energizer lithiums out of. Have had very good life out of those.

I've got cameras that send pictures with like an 8 for the signal. So it's probably a setting on that camera that you are going to have to change.

My buddy has a 13 camera system running in Iowa sending pics. One comment I’ll add is that if you are putting bait in front of cameras, don’t bait the primary camera. It will send all its pics first and not pics from all the cameras evenly.

I have 9 cameras with 1 repeater now and hope to be at 16 by deer season. It's a great system.

For those of you starting out, I'd go ahead and recommend getting the D cell battery packs on the J series cams. Especially if you're running them on fields or feeders.

There's also another forum that has a Cuddelink thread that is really good. Tons of questions answered in it and Cuddeback has a rep who is readily available to answer questions there.

No problem. I'll try to answer any questions you have here but there's a half dozen or so guys on that other forum who have really mastered the system. They know way more than me, and they're really helpful on questions.

I will say that I am on a full year of using my Cuddelink cameras now and I love them. They were great last deer season, helped me have 2 poachers arrested 3 days before turkey season, and were great during turkey season too.

I’m running a 6 camera (J series, except for Home) set up...I went ahead and converted my 5 remote cameras to the D battery pack and installed a solar panel to the Home camera. I’m loving it so far, but the emails can be a little bit slow to come through on nights with heavy deer movement/lots of pictures. Over the weekend, I was getting pictures emailed at 12-2 pm that were taken from 3-4 am the night/morning before.

I’ll be gunning for this buck!! He’s a 4 year old that grew about 25” over the Summer

It depends on what the camera is looking at. If it's on a food source, then I bump the delay - both of the delays - up. One of the delays is for how long it waits before it takes another picture. And then there is a delay for how long to wait before it sends another picture to the home unit. I have my food ones tweaked so that it ends up sending me probably every 3rd picture or so. Basically have the delay before it sends it to the home unit like 15 seconds longer than the trigger delay - think it's like 45 second trigger delay and 1 minute send to home delay. If it's on a trail or a scrape or whatever, then I just set the delay to whatever I would use for a regular cam and set both of them to the same value - think I'm using 30 seconds on those.

I also found that setting mine to send the emails every hour instead of on demand seemed to smooth out the lag in pictures getting sent. So I end up getting an email every hour with whatever pictures were taken in that previous hour on all of my cameras.

LOL. I am not even sure what I set my delay for sending the pics to if I did at all. Are yall running high mp on pics or low. I figured since I had unlimited it didnt matter but I guess it could slow down the transmittal. There was one setting and I dont recall what it was but you only had an option of 250 or 500. Any idea what that was. I guess I should have read the directions more thoroughly but I have been using CB for over 20 years and thought I could wing it. Planning to relocate all of them over the next couple of days to focus on a different section of property and will make all my needed adjustments then. I did set up a gmail account strictly for the camera because it was blowing up my personal email.

Crenshaw- Thank you for the heads up on the other forum. There's a wealth of info there and I pm'd the CB rep with some questions and he replied immediately.

I ran up to the camp this morning and fixed my issue with cam #3. As I suspected, I had it set on Repeater instead of Remote. Also, changed my delay and delivery settings with all cams so we'll see what happens.
