Trap Transmitter

Our Trap Transmitter (TT4) is a monitoring tool used during capture of wildlife using traps. It sends out alerts messages when an animal is captured. An advantage of our Trap Transmitter is that one is not required to constantly check on the trap as status messages are conveyed on a regular basis and when the trap is triggered.

Our Trap Transmitter communicates via GLOBALSTAR satellite with our system and with the external sensor.

Our VECTRONIC Trap system can be used for different kind of traps.


The alert message is triggered when the trap pulls the magnet from Trap sensor which will be promptly transmitted. It is send out as an email and as SMS.

A status message will be sent once a day when the trap is still active and not triggered. One or more sensors can be attached to a trap based on one’s needs.
