Chirp works with the Goodnature A24 Trap counting each pest the trap has killed - recording the day, time and air temperature. When you check your trap, Chirp sends this data to the Chirp App via Bluetooth™. With Chirp, even if you haven't seen any pests under your trap, you’ll know how many you’re catching.

Chirp keeps tracking when you’re offline - keeping your data stored until you’re connected again.

Chirp notifies you when you need to replace the lure and gas in your trap, keeping it fresh and ready to catch passing pests.

Sharing data with the Chirp App is simple and means others can help maintain your trap and monitor your success too. Perfect if you’re working with your community to solve a pest problem together.

The Chirp App shows you how your individual trapping success adds up to something much bigger. The less pests there are, the better chance native flora and fauna have to flourish again.

The Chirp App guides you through trap installation, ongoing maintenance and helps answer your questions.

* Receive data from Chirp via Bluetooth on your smartphone.

* Access the App offline to install traps and edit trap information in remote locations.

* View time, location and temperature data for each pest killed.

* Record the type of pest killed, if you’ve seen it.

* View your trap activity including maintenance reminders and history of kills.

* Share your trap with other Goodnature Chirp App users, so that others can maintain and monitor the success of your traps.

* View heat mapped kill density data.

Great App! But needs some work.

Awesome app and makes life so much easier by keeping all kills and data for traps in one place. However definitely needs some work.

App should really better capability to be used offline (by storing data and kills on device). It’s painful to be in a no-service area and not have full functionality. All data should be saved on phone and then later synced with cloud later.

Shared trappers should be able to have full control over traps like the owner. Shared trappers should be able to changed the name and location of traps. I myself have 30 traps and have other people that check them as well as myself. Some times traps need to be moved. And this can’t be changed by shared trappers. I love to see this changed, or to have the option (when sharing) to give shared trappers full control or minimum.

I have recently started to see an issue when replacing lure offline. Once the lure is replaced through the app, the location of the trap changes to a small island in the Pacific Ocean. I have no idea why.

Other than those issues the app works well and makes trapping fun and easy. Hope to see come updates and changes soon.

Thanks Petey!
Great to hear that Chirp is making life easier for you and loved hearing your additional suggestions. It’s helpful to learn how you’re using Chirp in the field and what functions would make the app even better for you.

Chirp is designed to work offline so we’d love to hear more from you on this - can you please email hello@goodnature.co.nz and let us know what functionality seems to be missing in a no-service area so we can clarify what is happening for you? If you can include screenshots of your trap location changing when you replace the lure we’d love to take a look at this too!

You’re correct, shared users cannot relocate or rename traps at this point but this is a development we are building in after listening to customer feedback like yours so watch this space. Thanks again! Ann


Chirp connectivity

Tried to sync well over 100 chirp traps this weekend. Difficulties encountered as follows;
1)Some won’t sync
2)Some are stuck on a contributors phone and have been for months, they won’t transfer ownership to the group and there has been no support from good nature.
3)The last sync date often doesn’t update
4)The sync process is better in mobile coverage than not, but unreliable.
5)The gas and lure up date process only works 20% of the time
6)None of the groups syncing activity has up loaded to the dash board so the group data is not accessible to group members
7) The only way to get the app to update was to load every trap individually?? On every phone and they all still had different totals

Still appears to be a prototype, In general there is a lot of debugging this app prior to it being properly useful.

Could do better

Great idea. Two stars for potential, would def give 5 stars if app worked well. Want the app to work well. But it doesn’t, really. (Trap’s great.) My original trap location meant the vibration from wooden compost bin lid closing was recorded as ‘kills’, and the only way to correct the count is by designating those as test fires. But the app’s not letting me do that for some reason at the mo. Also, I keep getting notifications of new data dating months back, even though I’ve seen that data before and tried to deal with it by designating the ‘kill’ type. Finally, the location settings are irritating. Seems unnecessary to have location always on, and there are endless prompts if you change setting to ‘only while using’.

Hi, thanks for the review! We're pleased to hear you're happy with your trap and appreciate you sharing your experience with the app. Can you please get in touch if you are still receiving the historic data notifications so we can help? Some smartphones require location preferences for the Goodnature app marked as always so it can see where your trap is located. This is an iOS setting and sounds like the reason you may be receiving notifications. If you have any extra comments feel free to fire them through to us at hello@goodnature.co.nz - Thanks, Ann
