When an uninvited guest enters your yard, here’s what happens:

  1. The ultra-bright white light illuminates the area
  2. Yardcam sends you a special text alert after taking several photos one second apart
  3. You then touch the special Yardcam icon on your smart phone, immediately connecting you to the Yardcam so you can see who is there
  4. You can then view on-going activity with photos streaming at the rate of four images per second
