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. Up to 15 Remote CuddeLink cameras can send images to 1 Home camera. 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 or thousands of acres. There is no monthly fee to collect images on the Home. A monthly fee is only incurred if you elect to use cell service.
