Haven’t caught anything yet but app has good articles
Thank you for the great info inside the app. It seems to be pretty cool- will update when I’ve caught something.
I think the PB I put in was spoiled and I touched the trap with my bare hands. Changed out the PB with gloves so hopefully it works quickly.
(Update- caught a little mouse. Love the way the app notified me even though I wasn’t at home!)
I am excited that there is a connected app as I had a mishap with an electronic trap that only signaled a catch on the trap itself. After 6 catches, we went weeks with nothing so I started getting lackadaisical about checking it. I won’t go into detail besides saying I figured it out from the smell, and I have never seen maggots that big before. Eww.
Team Victor- I believe that if the trap shows up in the device list that means it’s operating correctly. I know this seems redundant but please add a “device test” button that pings the trap and says its working (there’s no lights or anything showing it’s working). Also, could you include in the status something besides the battery power that states “connection good” or “device on”. If the device or signal drops off could you make a pop-up that says that the device may not be transmitting data to the app. As I mentioned above- I’m paranoid that something is rotting in the trap without my knowing. Pls update and I will update stars. Thanks!
What a pain to set up
Well spent about an hour banging my head against a wall trying to set this. I had almost given up and thought it just was not compatible with my WiFi. I have the eero mesh WiFi which is 2.4 and 5ghz and on reading all the complaints about connection issues and it only works on 2.4ghz I assumed that must be the issue. Sometimes it would see the network and I would go through the setup but it always failed to connect. Sometimes it would not see my network which is odd because it is a really strong signal throughout the house. Finally I sat the trap on top of the WiFi router and it actually connected. I moved to the location I set it and it was still connected according to the app. The two stars is just for the pain it was to set it up. I will give it some time to see how it works and how the notification works and update my review and rating.
update 1 After several hours I have no idea if the trap is actually able to connect and send notifications as it does not even have some sort of ping function. When I look at the status it just shows it as of when I first connected the trap.
Developer Response ,
We're sorry to hear that it took several tries to get the trap to connect. The trap will check in with the app once every 24 hours. For assistance in getting your trap connected, or if you have any other questions, please contact us directly at 855-584-2867. We're happy to help.
These electric traps are fantastic. They kill the mice but leave no mess. The problem I always had in the past is forgetting to check the trap (so the mouse decays in the older style electronic trap). This app and the new WiFi traps solve that problem! I’ve killed 5 mice since I’ve had the two traps. Worked every time. Reminded me every time.
Two suggestions: put your bait on a cut up strip of a business card and fold it into the trap. (Fold it first) The trap stays clean of old bait and never needs cleaning. Just throw out the mouse with the old bait card.
#2: for woodstream: add a reminder feature to the app so it reminds you a trap needs reset. If you are not home when you get the alert, it never alerts you again. This needs to be fixed.
To people who have had trouble: you need Wi-Fi service in the area you put the trap. Attics, basements, crawl spaces may not have the coverage of the rest of the house. If your location does not get good service, you can easily fix this by buying a $25 WiFi extender to plug in an outlet somewhere in between your access point and the traps.
To the person who wrote the review about killing ants: the trap only electrocutes something that touches the two plates inside. Ants are too small to touch both plates. You should put down an ant bait to solve that problem. Then the trap will work fine for mice and not attract ants even with peanut butter.
