Remote monitoring traps with sensor technology

Trap.nz enables trappers to remotely monitor devices (traps, bait stations etc) using sensors from a growing number of providers. For the trapper on the ground this means a heads up of sensors events in the app, and opt-in notifications via the app and email.

For project coordinators it offers an overview of all sensor devices across one or more projects. This provides not only trap status, but also early incursion warning, accountability for funders, and the social benefits of knowing when to start the kōrero with trappers.


All sensor statuses are viewable in the Trap.nz sensor reports - all your sensor providers data in one place.

Please contact us to become a sensor service provider.

In New Zealand, it is a legal requirement under the Animal Welfare Act 1999 that all live capture traps must be checked within 24 hours. Breaches are punishable by up to 12 months imprisonment and a fine of up to $50,000 for an individual or $250,000 for a body corporate.  

Trap.nz enables trappers to remotely monitor devices (traps, bait stations, etc.) using sensors from a growing number of providers. For the trapper on the ground, this means a heads-up of sensor events in the app and opt-in notifications via the app and email.

For project administrators, it offers an overview of all sensor devices across one or more projects. This provides not only trap status, but also early incursion warning, accountability for funders, and the social benefits of knowing when to start the kōrero with trappers.
