We set up a cabin at the ranch this year. We don’t have a lot of valuables there and set it up where it isn’t visible from the road and the gate has a good lock on it but still if someone wants in they are getting in.

We have never had any crime issues our entire county has a population of less than 2,000. In the one year I have had the place I have only seen one other vehicle drive down the county road that leads to our place.

All that being said I would like some kind of surveillance out there. We have stable electric but no WiFi. Cellular signal is excellent LTE. Should I just go with some cellular game cameras or is there a better solution? I was thinking a couple cameras on the cabin, one on a shipping container, and maybe one on the front gate.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Cell camera is pretty easy. Motion lights aren’t a bad idea either.

Sounds like you've got it covered quite well. I would strongly suggest adding solar chargers since cell cameras tend to take a much heavier toll on batteries.

Thanks. I see there are cellular cameras like the Arlo Go or Reolink Go. Basically they are full video home security style cameras that are cellular. Wondering if these might be better than still pictures from a trail camera? Not sure how well they actually work.

SimpliSafe Security system uses cell service for their system. I am installing one at my place in Edwards County. It also uses Wifi if available. I have Hughesnet. I have a cell booster in my house at the ranch. Both cell booster and Hughesnot are on UPS systems in event of power outage.

We use the SimpliSafe at our main residence in Richmond TX too.

Which would have been what? You had the Arlo go - the cellular ones or the regular WiFi Arlo?

I’ve heard good things about Reolink systems. Considering getting a few for camp, seems they have a communication capability so you can actually talk through them similar to Ring doorbells.

Had my place 10 years/ About 4 years ago had my gate security chain cut. They couldn't cut the hardened lock but the chain was unhardened and was cut. they stole my 16 ft trailer. Didn't go in cabin. Something to think about, Never got the trailer back. Found out Oklahoma and KS don't require registration so a ready market for stolen goods. I now store my equipment out of site. Must say it's been other than this have not had a problem.
