Cage Connect has been designed to deal with the issue of trapping live wildlife in an effective and humane way, without a technician needing to check the trap every day. Through using Cage Connect, trapping services can be extended to a period of one week, increasing the chances of trapping a pest animal. An automated alert sent over the mobile phone network when an animal is trapped enables a technician to respond quickly.
As with all the Connect systems, Rentokil provides a five-stage service for monitoring and managing pests:
Monitor - The site is continuously monitored by the Cage unit. When a small mammal enters the cage the unit detects it and closes the trap gate, humanely trapping the animal, recording the capture and sending the information to the Rentokil cloud server.
Alert - After an animal is captured the unit automatically sends an SMS alert via the mobile phone network to the PDA of a local Rentokil technician and the customer portal, myRentokil.
Respond - A local Rentokil technician will receive the alert and schedule a visit to the activated trap within legal timeframes, ensuring the customer’s business is free of pests and compliant with legislation.
Report - The technician records their service visit activity in myRentokil, providing real-time information online to the customer for identifying risks and trends and accessing recommendations, sitemaps and audit checklists.
Optimise - The Rentokil technician removes the wildlife pest from the Cage unit, inspects the area and recommends preventive pest control measures for optimum protection of the customer site.
Humane trapping - the Cage unit humanely traps foxes, squirrels, feral cats, foxes, rabbits, raccoons, possums, badgers, etc.
Automated alerts - the unit alerts automatically when an animal is trapped.
Wireless technology - real-time alerts are sent over wireless networks to technicians and the customer portal.
Immediate response - on receiving an automated alert by SMS the Rentokil technician can quickly arrange a site visit with the customer.
