Know exactly where to hunt without spending days manually scouting a location with the Day 6 PlotWatcher HD time-lapse game surveillance camera. The PlotWatcher records HD images of all the activity that happens in a select area in the days before you hunt. Once mounted at your stand location, the camera takes pictures every five to 10 seconds from dawn to dusk and condenses them into a 10-minute HD time-lapse video. As a result, you can review a full day of activity in just a few minutes, or even faster using the GameFinder video software.



The PlotWatcher takes pictures every 5 to 10 seconds from dawn to dusk.
The PlotWatcher is a step above most trail cameras, which trigger photos based on short-range motion. By contrast, the PlotWatcher captures images of an area regardless of how far away the subject stands. This greater field of view allows hunters to see game and analyze animals' travel patterns that would have otherwise gone undetected by traditional trail cameras. The information is a must for hunters looking to make an educated decision on where and when to hunt. No more wasting time hunting in unproductive spots.

The camera's GameFinder video player software makes it a breeze to review your daily video files. The software lets you review files in forward or reverse at your choice of replay speed, or even scroll frame by frame for a more detailed review. You can also speed up the review process by using the MotionSearch feature, which skips to the next frame in which motion is observed. With GameFinder, you can easily build and share your own library of HD video clips and pictures.

The PlotWatcher is easy to set up thanks to the simple one-button design. Simply select the time-lapse interval on the selector wheel, insert a USB drive, turn on the TLV unit, and scout. Other details include the ability to record up to seven consecutive days of time-lapse video; a video resolution of 1,280 x 720; a customizable recording time; and an SD card slot. The PlotWatcher--which requires four AA batteries (not included)--performs best when paired with an 8 GB USB drive.

Product Description

The PlotWatcher HD Game Surveillance System has revolutionized scouting camera technology and functionality. Unlike trail cameras that trigger on short-range motion, the PlotWatcher captures images of an area regardless of how far the subject is from the camera. So whether the animal is 30 feet or 330 feet away, you’ll see them on the video. This greater field of view allows you to see game and their travel patterns that would have otherwise gone undetected by traditional trail cameras. With this information, you can review your HD video to scout likely hunting locations before you go into the field. With this ability, you can pattern game and develop your strategy to know where and when you want to hunt. Get closer to your game and stop guessing where to hunt! Camera Features • Battery life lasts up to 35,000 video images (equals 7 days of 10 second interval time-lapse)* • GameFinder Software with MotionSearch software included • Review one full day in 3 minutes or less (5,000 frames of video) • 1280x720 HD video • Simple and easy-to-use thumb wheel control • Customizable recording time • Time-lapse settings for 5 or 10 second or customized intervals • 8 Gb USB drive recommended (not included) *4 AA batteries not included (Time based on 10 second interval setting)

This camera's use is not just limited to hunters. We recently installed one on a business in South OKC to record the street prostitution traffic to show to police and city leaders. Did an excellent job with no learning curve. The only drawback is the fact there is no way to secure this camera from theft - no holes for a lock, cable or anything. We used zip-ties, but it wouldn't take a thief 5 seconds to steal this camera even when zip-tied. We may upgrade to the latest version (twice as expensive) because it has additional features and holes for a cable lock. This video was shot on the 5 second interval.

Plotwatcher works well in daylight. Be sure to have full battery charge. It will record in many areas. small enough to put almost anywhere. Somewhat easy to use. Be sure that the flashdrive you use in it has no LED inside it case. This will cause the plotwatcher to use the batteries really fast. Also has NO IR night vision. That was my mistake. Cheaper flash drives have accent lights built right into their cases. Follow the instructions that comes with the Plotwatcher or go to their website. There you will find lots of helpful info, movies, and even another Software/Firmware download to make your Cam work more efficent. Resolution is really great for the cost and Color pictures to boot. Ive used mine to watch my house place while Im gone. Works great. You have to have a computer to watch the movie from the Cam's software. Would buy another one in a heartbeat.

I acquired two Plot Watchers and bought a couple of after market armored boxes for them, as well as cable locks to secure them with. I have one on an old portable basketball goal aimed at my remote gate which also encompasses my mailbox, the ten key remote gate access, as well as twenty yards or so down the street. I have another situated on my house a hundred and thirty feet away watching my long driveway as well as the first camera just mentioned. Mine are set to take a photo every ten seconds. That way I get up to eight days worth of power out of the four double A batteries each camera requires. I have eight gig flash drives in each. Those easily handle seven or eight days worth of photos. I have had the cameras now since February of this year, and it is now almost December. I have captured many interesting things with them. Living next to a wild area like I do, I have a problem with rabbits and ground squirrels doing a frontal assault on any young plants that are not toxic. I see the activity and where to set my live traps. I have hit the jackpot in eliminating them thanks to these cameras. Also, these are excellent security cameras. I have a neighbor who is not the best and since I have set these cameras up, he hasn't pulled any stunts like he has in the past. At least not during the day time. If you want to save any activity or photos, do it easily on your computer hard drive. I use a Windows to set the time and date on mine after erasing them each time. Easy to do. But I view them on an Apple. And in case you haven't read about these cameras, these take a photo as often as every five seconds all day long. They don't have to be tripped by a motion sensor. That means, they capture anything within their field of view. Like I said. I have one working a half football field length of driveway. The video I am including depicts the neighbors parking in my driveway for seven or eight minutes. Note the time/date stamp.

Bought one of these and two of the Primos DPS version. This one is a keeper and Primos is getting their stuff back today. Out of 6 days in the field Primos DPS took two afternoon sessions and NOTHING ELSE. Primos support? No answer. FAIL! Primos Viewing Software? FAIL. Slow, buggy import process.

This one took video 5 of 5 days in the field. The "Search" mode is a huge plus over the Primos version. Fast Forward to the action. Plotwatcher movies were ready to go right off the card. Bravo Plotwatcher

The Plotwatcher allowed me to do a quick scout of a large area. I set it up on a farm road and could see 100 yards down it. I was able to find the crossing that a large buck was using everyday and the time he was moving. I took that buck only because the plotwatcher helped me identify that buck's movements.

Turns out good quality photos and I like not being dependent on a motion detector. It allows broader coverage and more distance from the subject animal.

Was a little leery in ref. to water and the case but have had no prob. after storms moved through. This is not the do it all and all I need piece of equipment. It does, however go great with my other cameras. I set up to overwatch a area...saw the location the deer used day after day and then set my trail cams just in the woods to get more info on the deer.
I also put a cam under the plotwatcher in a spot I've used my cam before for three days. I had 7 photos of deer. But the plot watcher showed more area and I now know the deer are not coming as close to the location I was wanting to hang a stand...I moved the camera only and had 19 pic's in 2 days pluss what I saw on the plotwatcher.
Battery life has not been a issue due to time in the field. Easy to understand and use. Zoom is grainy but like I said use it with your other equipment and get those better shots or just move the plotwatcher.
I do suggest getting the metal case to lock it to the tree to keep the scum from helping themselves to your gear though. HH
