2G Turn Off in Australia - Say Hello to 3G Trail Cameras
Technology is moving forward at a rapid pace as we move forward in the 21st century, and this is particularly noticeable when it comes to trail cameras. While many MMS mobile trail cameras these days are using 3G technology, there are still a lot of models relying on 2G to send images and videos to your devices. Well, soon (and even as of now in some cases), mobile carriers will be shutting down 2G networks, meaning that you’re going to need to upgrade your existing camera, or purchase one our our excellent 3G models on the website.
As in most aspects of life, what was once groundbreaking quickly becomes outdated in the world of technology. This is especially true when it comes to MMS mobile trail cameras, since all of the major carriers (Telstra, Optus, and Vodafone) either have already shut down their 2G network (in the case of Telstra) or are scheduled to shut down later in the year. Since MMS cameras are also dependent on these towers used by the phone carriers, this means that 2G cameras won’t be around for too much longer. If you already have a 2G camera, this doesn’t mean you can’t still use it for the moment, but you need to prepare for the fact it may not work in the near future.
What Does This Mean?
If you’re thinking about getting a trail camera, this doesn’t necessarily have to be a big issue. While we’re no longer going to be selling 2G trail cameras on the site, there’s an even better alternative that we think you’ll definitely be interested in. Luckily for you, we sell an excellent range of 3G trail cameras right here on the Pro’s Choice website. Whether you want to protect yourself and your family from intruders, locate the best hunting trophies to take pride of place on the wall, or just get awesome nature pictures, we’re sure our quality products will be up to the task.
As we’ve mentioned, the phasing out of 2G technology will have an impact on the world of trail cameras, but, as there’s already a great alternative readily available in the form of our 3G MMS mobile trail cameras, this shouldn’t affect your purchase. If you’re looking for a superior product that more than justifies the price tag, 3G (or even 4G, when it becomes available) should be your choice.
Why Choose 3G Trail Cameras?
Here at Pro’s Choice, we stock some of the best 3G compatible models, from a host of industry-leading brands. These awesome products are guaranteed to give you amazingly high quality surveillance footage every time, and their remote operation makes them a truly convenient option for people who are serious about their hunting, wildlife, or security aids.
3G is far superior to 2G for a variety of reasons. Here are just a few of them:
3G cameras can send images to your devices via text or email within a matter of seconds. This is crucial if you need to be made aware of the situation as quickly as possible (e.g if your camera has picked up an intruder).
Features such as video and GPS are possible with 3G cameras, whereas these things wouldn’t be available on 2G models.
3G offers a much higher level of security than 2G, which is especially important when communicating with other devices.
Coverage is a lot better with 3G, so you’re much more likely to be able to use your camera even in more remote areas.
These are just a few of the reasons why 2G is becoming obsolete, and why it makes sense to make the switch to 3G.
What About 4G?
We’ve even got a 4G model in the pipeline, allowing you to get more out of your trail camera than ever before. It will soon be featured on our website, so watch this space! Controllable from miles away via SMS, iPhone apps, or Android apps, and with crystal clear images and unbeatable performance, this is sure to be the future of trail cameras.
The coverage, while good with 3G, is still dependent on which towers are in the area, and there’s the potential for gaps where your products won’t function to the best of their capabilities. All new towers being built today are 4G, meaning that there’s more chance of your camera working even in hard-to-reach areas. 4G technology will also ensure that photos and videos can be sent within seconds, for maximum convenience.
Why Choose Pro’s Choice?
As our name suggests, we’re the go-to site for experts and beginners alike who want a comprehensive solution to their trail wildlife photography needs. The majority of 3G cameras available from other sites actually won’t work with all of the major carriers (Optus, for example). Luckily for you, our 3G cameras at Pro’s Choice work on all of the main networks; giving you a lot more choice when you make your purchase. This also makes it more likely that you’ll get coverage even in remote rural areas.
You’ve also got the option of using cloud storage via Sensegram. This enables you to streamline the process of receiving images and videos, to ensure that important media doesn’t end up in your spam folder!
