Nowadays this can be a 4G SIM card or even a 5G connection and in some cases an older 3G connection. The use of mobile internet is especially useful in places where there is no fixed internet or you do not have access to it.
When to choose a 4G / 5G sim card spycam?
In places where there is a fixed internet or wi-fi that you have access to, it is not recommended to use a 4G / 5G spycam, because there are cheaper alternatives. If this is not the case and you still want to be able to watch live with the images from the spycam, then using a 4G / 5G surveillance camera on a SIM card is a good choice.

These spycams are connected with a cable to a smartphone that contains a 4G or 5G SIM card. You can view the images yourself via an app on the smartphone and change settings if necessary. On another phone or PC it is then possible to watch directly from a distance.
