Cellular Test

Once you have arrived at this point the following things should have already been completed:

- A Strike Force Wireless account (More Info Here)

- The Strike Force Wireless App downloaded (More Info Here)

- Install good quality Alkaline or Lithium batteries in the battery tray. Make sure the batteries are installed with the correct polarity, following the markings on the battery tray. For optimal performance we recommend using either Browning branded or Energizer batteries. Slide the battery tray fully into the closed potion.

- Install a New SD card that has not been used previously in other devices and has zero files on it. The recommended brands are Browning branded cards, Sandisk or Kingston. Cellular cameras will accept SD cards from 8GB to 512GB in size.

- Install the cameras cellular antenna that was included (if applicable). The antenna is attached to the foam insert on the back of the camera. Screw the antenna in place on top of the camera. CAUTION: Screw the antenna in place gently until a snug fit is reached. DO NOT over tighten the antenna as damage may occur.
