The Vikeri A1 trail camera has a 120° wide-angle lens and motion sensor that captures photos and videos with a 0.2s trigger time. In addition, the Vikeri A1 game camera has a 940nm no-glow illumination so that it won't scare away your game. The A1 cam is equipped with a low-noise Sony EXMOR IMX377 sensor and produces high-quality daytime images. However, nighttime and low-light photos and videos are of sub-par quality. While the camera has a door latch locking option, the camera is missing a cable lock option. Like most trail cameras, the Vikeri A1 camera takes daytime images in color, and nighttime photos and videos are black and white. The game camera can record videos with sound. The camera is waterproof and dustproof, so you can use it when it's raining or snowing outside. However, the info bar is unnecessarily large and covers a substantial chunk of the image. The Vikeri A1 camera comes included with a 32GB micro-sd memory card. The Vikeri A1 camera also comes with four AA alkaline batteries, which makes no sense as the camera needs eight batteries to run. The A1 model does not have wifi or wireless capabilities.
Memory Card Included
Slow Video Trigger
No Cable Lock Option
Micro SD Memory Slot
Poor Image Quality
Detection Range: 12/20
The detection range is just average and around 50 to 60 feet.
The manufacturer lists the camera trigger at only 0.2 seconds; however, the video recording is super slow. Often, the animal is almost gone from view before the camera starts recording.
The A1 models from Vikeri are heavily inclined to false triggers when deployed in the open. Therefore, we had no choice but to relocate our two units to wooded areas better protected from the wind.

This camera does not work except to take pictures yourself. Now it is frozen and won't turn off. Don't waste your money on this camera.

I've had this camera for about a year but barely use it because it only frustrates me every time I resolve myself to try it again. As another reviewer mentioned, it does take great selfies, that's about it. Waste of money.

Waste of money. Motion does not trigger pics. It arbitrarily shoots . Misses wildlife completely. Pissed off... don't buy
The nighttime videos are now reported as "not compatible with quicktime player" despite the fact that videos are recorded during the daytime and initially, night as well. Whats the deal. Bob.
yes, i just got my new trail camera today and i've been loving everything about it, setup was great, 8 fresh batteries.But my night time pics are very grainy !! I viewing them on a Window 7 computer so i tried adjusting the pic resolution to low MP.
Vikery A1, and other inexpensive cameras from Amazon, are just subpar when it comes to nighttime illumination. Unfortunately, there is no fix for that.
How do you change the date and time setting on the camera?
