Below are some frequently asked questions about our system. If there is a question that is not answered, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to answer your question promptly.
Do I have to use a special target for the system to work?
Absolutely not! You can use any type of target, commercial, hand drawn, piece of plywood - anything that can be punctured typically will work!
How far out can I shoot - can I reach one mile?
We have tested the 1000 yard long range edition out to 1790 yards (just over a mile) under ideal conditions. This means true clear line of sight, with no power lines crossing the shooting path and no obstructions. If you desire to shoot farther than one mile, we do have our YAGI antenna upgrade which can reach up to 3000 yards.
How far away can I place the camera from the target?
In a typical setup you would place the camera 4-8 feet back and between a 30 and 45 degree angle. There is usually no risk in shooting the camera as it can be out of the way of your target.
The software has a zoom feature so you can zoom into the actual target and then zoom out to see the surrounding area. For example if you are shooting long distances and have a target, or several targets, on a piece of plywood - you can pick the area you are looking at - this is all controlled via the software. You never have to re-visit the target until you are done shooting!
Will this work on my iPhone, iPad or Android Device?
Yes! We currently have an iOS (iPhone/iPad) application available in the Apple App Store entitled "Bullseye Target Manager". We are working on an Android application as well as Mac OSX.
How long will the batteries run the system?
The batteries typically last from 4-6 hours of use. The system comes with a charger to charge the battery pack.
How difficult is the system to set up?
The Bullseye Camera System is incredibly easy to set-up. You can set it up and have it running in under 5 minutes. You simply place the camera on the tri-pod, point it at the target and align it using the built in laser, then plug the router and camera into the battery pack, wait for the "green lights" and then head back to your shooting location and run the Bullseye Target Manager software - it's that easy!
What is the difference in the 500 and 1000 yard systems?
The 1000 yard system comes with a larger battery, booster power cable and signal booster. There is literally no additional setup.
What happens when you update the software and add new features? Do I have to pay for those?
We offer free software upgrades. You will be able to download those directly from our website at anytime.
What is the warranty period for the system?
We offer a one year manufacturers limited warranty. We do offer a 2-year Downrange Protection Plan option warranty that covers everything including a hit by a projectile for 2 years after purchase. You can read the full warranty here.
Do I need cellular or Internet Service for the system to work?
You do not need cellular or Internet service of any kind. The system can be used in the middle of the desert or anywhere you wish. The system generates its own WIFI Hotspot that your laptop connects with to transmit the camera images. The included software handles everything for you!
