LITITIZ, Pa. — Woodstream now offers the wireless-enabled Commander trap. This cordless trap offers wireless-enabled capabilities, permitting owners to monitor their trap’s performance levels and maintenance needs from any wireless Smartphone or laptop.
Equipped with a wireless module that communicates with a wireless router, the trap transmits data to a web-based database that the trap owner can access through any PC or mobile device. This capability gives users the ability to monitor trap maintenance needs and receive real time status updates via email or text message. Users are privy to a variety of trap attributes such as propane tank status, net replacement, lure time, motion sensor, outside temperature, fault codes for troubleshooting, and remote off. This information is available 24/7 through a user-interface the trap owner can access by creating an account on MosquitoMagnet.com. Automatic reminders can be sent via email to notify owners when it’s time to change the lure, refill the propane tank or replace the net. The Commander’s user-interface can also accept orders for replacement accessories making the maintenance schedule both easy and convenient.
“Giving our trap owners access to information was critical when developing the Commander,” explains Jessica Simmons, Category Development Associate for Mosquito Magnet. “On-going trap maintenance is a key to the success of our Mosquito Magnet® traps. So we wanted the Commander to be easy to use and wireless, thus making it convenient for owners to maintain their traps at optimum operating levels. The Commander equips owners with the best technology in today’s market to eliminate their mosquito problem, take back their yard and expand their outdoor living space."
The Commander operates on “Smart” Technology and includes an easy-to-read LCD panel on the front of the unit for enhanced diagnostics. There are five customizable fuel-saving modes and a cold-temperature shutdown setting that can extend the life of your propane tank up to 30 days. Additionally, all information displayed on the LCD panel can also be found in the trap’s online user-interface.
Like all Mosquito Magnet® traps, the Commander uses a patented Catalytic Converter to change propane to CO2 mixed with heat, moisture and secondary lures to attract mosquitoes. The trap works by emitting this mixture to mimic human breath and capture mosquitoes’ attention. Once the mosquitoes are drawn to the trap, a vacuum will draw them into the net where they dehydrate and die within 24 hours. The trap begins working immediately and takes approximately four weeks to break the breeding cycle of the mosquito.
