The BuckEye Cam ORION XIR has taken the game camera system to an entirely new level. There is no need to visit the camera to retrieve your pictures. The Orion XIR camera system consists of 2 parts, a camera and a base. You set your camera up just as you would any camera system but where this camera is different is it actually transmits the images to the base unit up to 1.5 miles away. The big advantage with a wireless system is that you do not visit your camera and that means no site disturbance. In addition, you could actually get pictures of someone stealing your camera.
How the Orion XIR works:
The Orion XIR camera can be configured to be a Portable Camera only or a Portable Base & camera. When the camera is configured as a Portable Base it will store (and sort) the pictures from all of the cameras on a standard SD card. The software for changing the camera settings from the Portable Base is also stored on the SD card. The software can be accessed through a computer, or a hand-held ?Palm-Pilot? type of device.
