Literally, a Better Mousetrap from Helium & Victor® Powered by The People’s Network

What was once available only to professional service providers is now available to everyone on #ThePeoplesNetwork. Today Helium and Victor®, the world’s largest manufacturer of rodent-control traps, announced a partnership to bring better-connected mouse traps to commercial and residential buildings. Gone are the days of manually having to monitor traps on top of your pesky problem. Through Parley Labs, members of the People’s Network will be able to purchase Victor’s VLINK® Tunnel Traps and set up a fully remote solution in minutes powered by The People’s Network.

The People’s Network, the largest public LoRaWAN network in the world – spanning over 3,000 cities globally – is owned and operated by consumers who have deployed Hotspots. The VLINK® Tunnel Trap is fully compatible with The People’s Network, using the LoRaWAN wireless protocol and nearby Hotspots to connect devices in even the hardest places to reach (even your concrete basement). With a battery life of up to 3+ years, the innovative traps easily pair with your mobile device for remote monitoring and notifications to alert you when the trap has been deployed.

Vlink Smart Pest Traps
"Our team are experts in making highly-effective rodent control devices, we’ve been doing it for over 120 years. Having the chance to combine our expertise with Helium’s unique network is an exciting opportunity to bring revolutionary traps to a new audience."

Purchasing Options

Consumers in North America with Helium Network coverage can purchase the VLINK® Tunnel Trap from us and choose between two options:

  1. Self Provisioning
  2. Parley Labs Provisioning
Provisioning is the process of on boarding your IoT device onto the Helium Network through Console and providing your account with Data Credits. Self provisioned devices will enable customers to manage their own fleet of traps in their private console. Our provisioned units are ready to go out of the box fully loaded with Data Credits for the life of the trap. Once provisioned, you will be setup with a VLink account to manage your traps anywhere in the world.

    will this allow us to mine for Helium as well?

      Your hotspot can earn some hnt for the data credits burned. But these traps use so little data and last so long (3 years on one battery) that you will not pay itself off. Buy these to solve a pest problem, not to mine HNT.
