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.
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!
