Devices are tools you use to catch pests. They include tin cats, snap traps, ILTs, and so on. You attach a barcode or QR code to each of these devices. When you’re on site, you just scan the device with our mobile app and add evidences, captures and the conditions you find in and about the trap.
Click the gear icon in the upper right of your ribbon bar to add/remove/update device attributes. (The gear icon is available to administrators only.)
