Q: What is Anticimex SMART?

A:    Anticimex SMART consists of Smart Connect Minis, Smart Eyes Minis, and Smart Snap Minis, all exchanging information with each other and back to Viking’s local service branch. The devices determine where the mouse pressure exists, enabling the Smart Snap Minis to be moved to critical locations. When a catch is detected, Viking’s professionals will be notified, and we will make arrangements to come and empty the system. As our customer, you will never have to think about mice in your home again, much less removing a DIY mouse trap. Anticimex SMART works around the clock monitoring for pest activity in your home and will detect pests early to prevent infestations and damage. It is like having a professional constantly inspecting your home 525,600 minutes per year.

Q: How is Anticimex SMART Different from Traditional and Electronic Mice Traps?

Q: Where are the Anticimex SMART Traps Placed in my Home?

A:  The Anticimex SMART traps are placed in areas of your home where your Viking Technician determines as high mice pressure areas. Every home is different, so we optimize the placement based on your home. Common areas include:

Q: How Does the Anticimex SMART Mini Collect Data?

Our Technicians carefully place these sensors in areas without high human traffic to reduce false reporting.   


Q: Is the Anticimex SMART Mini System Waterproof?
