Trap Communications Gateways Installed

Listed: 24th May 2023

After a significant amount of planning, testing and some more waiting, we have installed the first of three Gateways for our new integrated management system on our AT220 traps in Bush Creek. This incredible technology will allow us to check on trap status, operations, bait and battery levels from the office – significantly reducing our field time and increasing our efficiency. This project, in conjunction with FTP Solutions, has seen a leap forward in our ability to maintain our trap network as well as opening the door into being able to use these traps in Kea habitat. Through AI learning, these traps have the ability to not fire on an “unidentified target species” and can be set to only fire on Possums and Rats. We’re very excited to get the Bush Creek network live, before also rolling this out in Wye Creek and Bob’s Cove.
