Q: What is Anticimex SMART?
A: Anticimex SMART consists of the Smart Eye, Smart Catch, Smart Box, Smart Pipe, and Smart Connect, all exchanging information with each other and back to Viking’s central office. The devices determine where the rodent pressure exists, enabling the Smart Catches and Smart Boxes to be moved to critical locations as hot spots of activity located and tracked. When a catch is detected, Viking’s professionals will be notified, and we will make arrangements to come out to empty the traps and relocate the equipment as necessary. As a Viking client, our team handles rodent concerns so you can focus on your business!
Q: How Does Anticimex SMART Work?
A: The Anticimex SMART system works by using infrared sensors to detect and track rodent activity giving the Viking team valuable insight to control rodent populations at your facility. Using data instead of poison our SMART product is the most effective and eco-friendly form of rodent control. The SMART family of products connect with each other on an external shared network allowing for 24/7 monitoring with data reported to Viking’s central office. Using the collected data, the Viking team is able to access and re-evaluate placement of traps to optimize your rodent control.

A: The Anticimex SMART traps are placed in areas of your facility where your Viking specialist determines as high rodent pressure areas. Every facility is different, so our team optimizes the placement based on your site. The location of the devices may change over time based on the data received from the sensors, with decisions made based on data, not intuition.
Q: How Does Anticimex SMART Monitor 24/7?
A: Anticimex SMART is a battery-powered digital system, apart from the Connect Classic which requires a plug. Depending on where the SMART equipment is setup it can be set to monitor 24/7 or on a set schedule.

Q: How do the Digital Alerts from Anticimex SMART Work?
A: When the Smart sensor detects movement, activity within the trap, or if a rodent is caught within the Smart device, a daily, or hourly, digital alert is sent directly to your Viking Technician. When your Viking Technician receives the alert, s/he will be able to respond to any urgent needs or plan a service visit to empty and possibly relocate traps.
Q: What products are part of the Anticimex SMART System?
Smart Eye is a small sensor that detects and reports movement. Thanks to its small size, it is often placed in the narrow spaces rodents crawl through.
Q: Do the infrared Sensors Only Pick up Rodent Activity?
A: The Smart eye and catch detect temperature differential activity happening within their range. The sensors do not detect room temperature movement as to avoid potential false alerts Whether a rodent or a squirrel happens to walk past this sensor, the Smart device will report motion activity to your Viking Technician. Our Technicians carefully place these sensors in areas without high human traffic, or have the traps set to active only during hours where employees and/or guest are not commonly present, to reduce false reporting.
