INSITE CELL Huntsmart
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PURCHASE
This set up guide will walk you through step-by-step to get your new Insite Cell™ trail camera up and running. Before we begin pairing to the app, please make sure you’ve followed the instructions for the initial hardware setup found in your quick-set-up guide. At this point you should have the antennas in place, an acceptable SD card in the device and fresh batteries installed.
You’ll also need to make sure you have the HuntSmart™ app downloaded to your mobile device from the App Store or Google Play.
PAIRING TO THE CAMERA
Depending on the app software version you have, you may be asked to update your camera’s firmware. Follow those instructions in the app before Step 1 to ensure an easy and seamless setup.
From the ‘Cameras’ tab in the footer navigation, locate the ‘Add Camera’ icon (+ sign) in the upper right hand corner.
The next screen you’ll see will list all of the discoverable devices in range. Reference the serial number on the back of your camera and select the device that matches. You may be asked to select the model type you’re setting up –select Insite Cell.
Next you’ll name your camera and enter its WiFi password. The password can be found in two places:
- The last page in your Quick Set-Up Guide.
- In the camera’s battery well underneath the SD card slot.
Your Insite Cell will automatically detect the best signal strength from any network provider based on its location once connected.
SELECT AN APP SUBSCRIPTION & IMAGE TRANSMISSION PLAN
Now that you’re paired to the device you can select the HuntSmart app subscription plan you prefer. This is your ‘cloud’ data storage where cell images will transfer through to your mobile device. This extra storage can also house images from any SD card and use advanced artificial intelligence technology to analyze your images.
Upgrade your plan to unlock features such as Species Recognition, Buck Scoring and more!
Next, select the cellular data transmission plan you’d like for this specific camera. Cell plans are specific to each camera and regulate the amount of images you’ll receive from it. Each cell camera requires its own individual cell plan. You can upgrade, change or discontinue each plan monthly with no contract or commitments.
If you exceed your transmission limit you can still access the images stored directly on the SD card if you choose that setting.
PLACE IT ON THE MAP
Place the location of the camera on a map using your phone’s GPS coordinates. Don’t worry, if you’re setting up the camera at home, you can change the location later once you place it in the woods.
AIM WITH LIVE VIEW
Use Live View during set up make sure your camera is angled perfectly.
Let’s confirm your camera’s settings. You’ll find all the standard preferences you’d expect for Capture Delay, Photo Resolution, Exposure and more. Your camera has two main functions for delivering cellular images:
- Scheduled Time Slots
- Each Detection
Note: Image transmission frequency greatly affects battery life. The more often the camera sends images, the quicker the battery will drain. For most efficient use, we recommend transmitting once or twice daily. Do not select the “each detection” function unless you are using a solar panel or some other battery source supplement.
START RECEIVING IMAGES
You’re all set up!
Images transmitted to your phone will appear in the ‘Photos’ section of the footer navigation.
Now that you understand cell images are transferred to you through the cloud, that’s how they’ll appear.
“Local” will filter by images that are stored directly on your mobile device vs. images stored in the ‘Cloud’.
