Read our Moultrie Mobile XV7000i review to have a better idea of this revolutionary wireless trail camera
Moultrie Mobile XV7000i works just like a regular trail camera. It takes photos of anything that passes in front of it thanks to its motion sensor. In addition to that, once an image is captured, a built-in cellular modem comes into play and transmits the image to a server. You can access this server by using the Moultrie Mobile app or website with your smartphone or computer. By using this single app, you can control your data plan, payment method, and camera settings.
Moultrie Mobile XV-7000i trail camera runs on Verizon’s 4G network. There will be no contracts or activation fees. All you need to do is to activate your account and choose the data plan that best fits your needs.
Image & Video Quality
By using Moultrie Mobile XV7000i you can take 20MP images and 1080P HD videos which will be almost crystal clear. You can set the camera to view time, date, temperature (F/C), moon phase, and an 11-character camera name if you wish. All these or only some of them can be removed in case you do not want to display them on your footages.
Detection Circuit & Trigger Speed
Moultrie Mobile XV7000i is equipped with 32pcs of invisible 940NM Infrared LEDs. This IR flash and Illumni night 2 sensor will enable you to take perfect night images. So, you will not miss anything 24 hours a day. The flash range of the camera is 80ft just like its detection range. The trigger speed of Moultrie Mobile XV7000i is also pretty impressive. It is only 0.3s which is faster than many other models on the market. The recovery time for this game camera is about 65s.
Moultrie Mobile XV7000i features a motion detect delay mode which you can set to 0sec,10sec, 30sec, 1min, 5min, 10min, and 30min. It can also be set to a multi-shot mode in which in 1sec / 3sec burst, 3 photos are triggered. This game camera does not have a programmable start/stop time. On the other hand, it has a hybrid mode for both photos and videos.
Design & Accessories
Moultrie Mobile XV7000i feels pretty sturdy when you handle it. It does not have a screen on it but has a lock to fix the SD card into its place. It measures 8.5″ x 5″ x 4″ and can be easily mounted on a tree or a rock.
Moultrie Mobile XV7000i operates on 12 AA batteries. It also features a 12V external battery jack. One set of batteries is said to last about 3 months but to make this clearer let’s say that if you take 15-day images and 15-night images every day, it would last about 2.5 months on a single set of lithium batteries.
Storage Options & Warranty
Moultrie Mobile XV7000i can function as a regular game camera. It is compatible with an 8GB Class 10
SD card and once you put an SD card in, all your photos and videos will be stored in it. In addition to the storage in the SD card, when you send photos or videos to your mobile phone or your computer, all of them are saved online too! This means that you can delete the images on the SD card to make room for new images but you will still have them online, accessible at all times.
Moultrie Mobile XV7000i is covered by a two-year warranty and 90-day returns.
One downside of Moultrie Mobile XV7000i is its high sensitivity to temperature changes. Moultrie Mobile XV7000i features a heat detection sensor as well as a movement sensor. Therefore, you may get blank footages on days with instant temperature changes, like windy days.
Another feature that customers complained about is the quality of nighttime images. Some think that they are not clear enough and that one cannot see objects in detail. This is a downside to be considered especially if you are planning to use it for security purposes.
Moultrie Mobile XV7000i is a solid performer in many aspects. It is a high-resolution cellular trail camera with an impressive detection circuit range, a blazing trigger speed, and a fair price. We think that it is a more than fair deal and strongly suggest this cellular game camera!!
