Wildlife Monitoring Technology That Works

After years of product development and research, Skyhawk has developed a new, innovative wildlife monitoring technology called the Kiwi. With features that overcome the challenges in nuisance and wildlife control, the Kiwi is a device that remotely monitors your traps using a sensor that detects movement.

Skyhawk’s remote monitoring capabilities bring vast amounts of implications for those who use live animal traps and trapping supplies. With real-time alerts, it’s possible to monitor when an animal trap has been triggered and keep track of its location with a modern, easy-to-use phone app. Skyhawk wildlife monitoring technology monitors traps using accelerometers and sends an alert when the device is triggered due to trap activity. Users are able to control the sensitivity of the sensor as well as the frequency of notifications. Additionally, Skyhawk animal trap products are rated for up to 3+ years of battery life (or roughly 2,500 notifications) by using standard, replaceable batteries and optimized cellular technology.

Deploy Animal Trap Monitoring Almost Anywhere

Powered by Verizon, Skyhawk live animal trap products can monitor traps that are set virtually anywhere in the United States. Skyhawk wildlife trap products are able to monitor your traps in practically any location with coast-to-coast LTE coverage, even in areas with low cell signals. We fully know that our wildlife monitoring technology and products are exposed to the elements and subject to wear over time; that’s why we run tests that would imitate where the traps were set, including but not limited to: drop tests, water proofing, signal strength, accelerometer sensitivity, placement testing, and over the air (OTA) updates.

Start Saving Time with Effective Animal Trap Monitoring

Skyhawk wildlife monitoring technologies have been designed to streamline more difficult processes, save time during the day, and ultimately relieve some of the stress of having to manage several traps at once. It can be a guessing game to determine if a trap has caught anything and traveling out of the way to find that it was a misfire is a waste of time and resources. By cutting back on the hassle of having to constantly physically monitor traps, a 24-month subscription to one of our remote monitoring devices can pay for itself over just a couple of months.

Affordable Trap Monitoring Solution

Consider an example scenario: a nuisance and wildlife management company hire a field technician to go on an hour long trip each week to check a large animal trap, which costs the company $10 each way. This costs the company $1,040 a year at the rate of $20 per trip, whereas the cost of 1 Kiwi is less than $300. Using a wildlife camera trap, such as the Arlo Go, can cost over $800 for unlimited coverage on the same network.

Reducing Risk with Wildlife Monitoring Technology

We think it’s also interesting to note the savings on liability. For example, if the wildlife management company set live traps for raccoons in hard-to-reach places, then the field technician would spend less time on the road and in dangerous areas.

We take pride in providing high-quality wildlife monitoring technology and hope to simplify the day-to-day with alerts that are proactive and not reactive. With network coverage virtually everywhere, we want you to be able to spend time deploying more traps, and not driving around checking them.
