Empowering conservation with technology 

Our main product, SmartTrap® is a biosecurity wireless monitoring system using LoRaWAN® IoT network.*

* The LoRaWAN® specification is a Low Power, Wide Area (LPWA) networking protocol designed to wirelessly connect battery operated ‘things’ to the internet in regional, national or global networks, and targets key Internet of Things (IoT) requirements such as bi-directional communication, end-to-end security, mobility and localization services.



>Your traps are connected to Nodes.

>These nodes tell a Hub when a trap is closed


>The Hub can then tell just you, only people who need to know - or the entire world.
