Remote Trap Monitoring

Modernize your Rodent and Wildlife Control Systems with Electronic Remote Monitoring (ERM)

Skyhawk’s Hub and Vibration/Magnet Sensor is a cost-effective multi-trap monitoring solution that allows rodent control technicians to monitor deployed traps and bait stations more efficiently. Place a hub at the monitoring location and sensors on each trap or bait station. When a trap is triggered or a bait station is entered, the technician is alerted on the Skyhawk software application.

Skyhawk Hub & Vibration/Magnet Sensor Benefits:

  • Increase efficiency and capacity of your workforce.
  • Flexible solutions for commercial and residential applications.
  • Hub & Sensors work with traps you already own.
  • Reduce or eliminate the use of rodenticide.
  • No external power sources are needed.
  • Operates using standard AA batteries for years of uninterrupted service.
  • The Skyhawk CE app securely sends alerts and notifications to your smartphone.

Electronic Wildlife Monitoring Single Trap Solution

The Skyhawk Kiwi is an easy-to-setup, low-power battery-operated wildlife monitoring device utilizing the latest cellular technology for connectivity. Receive real-time notifications when the monitored device senses a trapped animal moving; or for additional feedback using the magnetic sensor to monitor the door status on the trap. The Skyhawk Kiwi has been widely deployed to monitor the activity of live animal traps for both TNR (Trap Neuter Release) and NWCO (Nuisance Wildlife Control Operator) operations.

The Skyhawk CE App

Skyhawk CE App

The Skyhawk CE App serves as the control center for all your deployed Hubs and Sensors and Kiwi units. Monitor battery status, manage notifications and add and remove sensors through a streamlined user interface.

Skyhawk CE receives regular updates for Android and iOS devices to ensure mobile device compatibility and add new features as the platform evolves.

The Simple Path to Higher Profits

Increased Efficiency

Spend less time checking traps.

Checking rodent traps, bait stations, and wildlife traps is labor-intensive. That puts pressure on your bottom line and spreads your staff too thin. Our hubs instantly connect with all sensors - no pairing required!

Operates Anywhere

Rats don't need Wi-Fi, and now neither do you!

Unlike other remote monitoring solutions that use batteries that need frequent replacement, require AC power for hubs, and need Wi-Fi networks to work, the Hub & Sensors use ultra-long-life batteries and utilizes cell towers to connect - significantly improving the capabilities of the devices!

Built to Last

Built to last

Managing your traps with our rugged, low-hassle devices is a breeze! All devices utilize ultra-long-life batteries that cut maintenance times.
Our sensors are water-resistant and designed to last 5-10 years using standard batteries, and our water-resistant hubs last more than a year using replaceable off-the-shelf batteries

Rodent & Wildlife Control FAQ

Is it easy to deploy hubs and sensors?

They are easy to deploy. Just follow our online videos or the manuals provided with the packaging for helpful tips and tricks.

How long are the cords for hubs? 

No power cords are needed! Our hubs and sensors use standard AA batteries designed to last a year plus with average use. 

Do I have to rely on the customer's Wi-Fi signal for the devices to communicate? 

Each device will operate using cellular connectivity, so there is no need to inconvenience the customer by asking to hook up to their Wi-Fi network. This also allows you to use the unit in more remote locations! 

What other traps can the sensors be used with? 

A variety! Snap traps, live traps, conibear traps, and lethal traps just to name a few. The accelerometer and reed switch give the sensors the versatility to be used with any trap set up.

How difficult is it to change the batteries? 

Changing them is very simple! After removing the screws and opening the device, you can simply replace the existing batteries for new ones. 

Can rain damage the sensors?  

The devices are weather-resistant, although they should never be submerged in water. In addition to this, we also offer sleeves for the devices to further protect them from the elements.

Where can I place this device? 

With the devices’ design, it can be attached to any area of your choosing. You have the options of the provided accessory pack, or a standard zip tie will hold the unit in place with ease. 

Will the sensors be triggered by wind or rain? 

The devices have sensitivities that can be adjusted from 1 to 10. A lower sensitivity can be used with traps that generate a lot of force, like conibear traps. This way, wind or rain will not trigger a response, but the trap closing certainly will.

What if I lose track of where I set all of my traps? 

Each units deployment location can be viewed from the app! When each trap is set, you can easily go to the app and mark the location using your phone’s location feature. In addition, you can take a picture to go with each unit on the app and include notes and descriptions of the units location!

How can I be sure that my sensors are in range of the hub?

The app will display the signal strength for each sensor. To find this, you can select your specific unit and go to its status tab, where you will see a tile named “Sensor RSSI,” or Received Signal Strength Indicator. It will display the signal strength, and it is strongly advised to keep the device at a signal of 105 or lower. A number above 105 can lead to the sensor not being able to communicate with the hub.

What environmental factors impact Hub signal strength?

Signal strength is impacted by many factors: including the type of buildings, metal objects and thick walls inside the buildings, other obstructions, and even people moving in between the signal from the hub. Some variation in RSSI over time due to changing environmental (temp and humidity) conditions would not be unexpected.

How can I get the best signal between my hubs and sensors?

For interior deployments, ensure the RSSI is between 35 and 95 at initial deployment. If this is a higher number than 95, you can try:

a. Moving the trap closer to the hub OR
b. Orienting the sensor vertically rather than horizontally can improve the RSSI sometimes OR
c. Adding another hub to the site; hubs should be placed at least 10 feet away from each other

NOTE: One (1) hub per 15000 square ft of the area being covered is recommended

*For exterior deployments, recommended RSSI number should be lower than 105.
