    I was wondering if anyone knew if any companies were making cameras that can be linked up on one property...Similar to how the “Cuddelink” /Cuddeback Work “But Instead of Needing to pull a card on the one “main” camera, that one camera would be Cellular , and transmit all of the other cameras photos to my email/text.
    This way I could have one cellular account on the property. Instead of having 3 Spypoint cameras on my property with 3 individual cellular cameras/ accounts .
    My property is 4 hours away from home , so I have decided to go the Cellular route this year to help manage. I was just hoping something like this existed so I could save a little cash ....Or I guess I’ll be buying 3 of the spy point cameras that all communicate separately .

    I think if you have Verizon as your cell phone carrier, you can add lines for $5 each/month. If you were to purchase cams that are compatible with Verizon,such as a Spartan go cam, it would be a cheaper way to go.

    That is correct. I have 3 Spartans with Verizon. Total 15 bucks a month.

    Do you have the unlimited plan? You just pay an additional $5 on top of your plan a month to have them sent to your phone?

    I have 16 GB plan. The three cams might use 1 GB unless I download lots of videos from my 4g cam.

    As with any cellular cam, you need an external battery pack. They will last over 4 months with the pack. They last 1 month with alkaline and 2 months with lithium. I have spare 6 volt batteries and just swap out when needed.

    Thanks for all the great answers guys!
    I had been looking at “Spypoint”
    I am now looking at Spartan .
    I have VERIZON wireless plan. Where I live it’s GREAT. Unfortunately out in WV where my mountain property is , Verizon data is spotty. AT&T looks good out there. I’ll figure it out!
