SMS, MMS and Wireless Scouting Cameras

SMS stands for short message service. The service allows for short text messages to be sent from one cell phone to another cell phone or from the Web to another cell phone. Typically a maximum of 160 characters. When it is mentioned in the wireless scouting camera industry, a common function will be related to SMS: SMS control. This function allows you to send a SMS text message to the camera to change the settings, request a realtime picture, or close the gate. The SMS command can be sent from a regular phone or from a server via internet. When using the JAGER PRO app, when you choose one of these options, it will automatically open your messaging with an SMS message to send to the camera.

MMS messaging, which stands for multimedia messaging service, takes SMS text messaging a step further. MMS allows for longer message lengths beyond the traditional, 160-character SMS limit. MMS, which is often used to send pictures, extends upon SMS and allows for longer content lengths. MMS feature is used widely in the scouting camera industry. With the MMS feature over Verizon, AT&T or T-mobile cellular network, the user can send the pictures to a cellphone or an email address by using the MMS text message plan.

Cellular data is the default type of data connection used to surf the Internet and is transmitted from or to your phone using cell towers. Your phone uses cellular data whenever it is not connected to a Wi-Fi network or mobile hotspot. When using the mobile app, it will download using data. This is where your mobile device will upload and download information through a local cell tower using cellular data.
