PerdixPro trap tags are designed for use in conjunction with PerdixPro Trapping, our cloud-based animal trap management and monitoring system. If you are already using PerdixPro Trapping to manage your trapping programmes and data collection, your trap tags will be added to your account and can be used immediately. Simply use the add PerdixPro Device feature within PerdixPro Trapping to start monitoring traps at your existing trap sites.

PerdixPro trap tags have been designed to be hassle-free and extremely easy to use in the field, whether the user is experienced with technology or not. No need for bits of string or magnets like older-style monitoring systems – just attach the tag, activate in PerdixPro Trapping and you’re done.
Because PerdixPro trap tags are activated via the vibration caused when a trap is set off and /or moved by a trapped animal, they can be easily used on a wide range of traps and in most trapping situations. They can be easily attached directly to cage (live-capture) traps using standard or stainless steel cage ties or screwed onto the housing / tunnels of spring (kill) traps. They can also be attached to cable-restraints and leg-hold traps.
All trap tags come with PerdixPro sim cards pre-installed. Our sims are roaming and will connect to the strongest network available in your trapping area. They also use secure data connection and IMEI-lock security and so cannot be used if stolen. Further details on our PerdixPro sims and connection options please click here.
