CuddeLink is not cell service or Wi-Fi. CuddeLink is a proprietary wireless mesh network that allows the cameras to communicate with each other. CuddeLink transmits images from remote cameras to a home image collection camera. CuddeLink networks can have from 1 to 23 remote cameras. Start with a few and add more cameras as you need them. Typical transmission range in a dense forest is ¼ to ½ mile. In open spaces CuddeLink has camera-to-camera range to over 1 mile. Like all wireless systems transmission range will vary with terrain and conditions. CuddeLink automatically daisy-chains cameras to extend range to over 4 miles, making CuddeLink deployable on properties of hundreds to thousands of acres. There is no monthly fee to collect images on the Home camera.
