Traplinked is a fast growing tech company from Nuremberg, Germany. Making pest control environmentally friendly, sustainable, time- and cost-efficient is what traplinked aims to achieve.
The practical business idea was developed through professional experience in pest control: Trapping is a popular and effective method for rodent control. However, the use of traps incurs high personnel costs as they must be checked regularly and is therefore also time-consuming. This is where the digital solution from traplinked comes in: a combination of wireless communication and sensor technology monitors and documents pest infestation and vermin, even across multiple locations.
Founded in 2019, traplinked is now home to 15 employees from different countries. We are proud to be part of the Bavarian ZOLLHOF Tech Incubator funding program and enjoy cooperating with the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology. Currently we are working closely with more than 100 pest controllers across Europe and help them to offer an unparalleled level of hygiene and pest treatment to their customers – at an unrivaled price.
- Efficient and sustainable alternative without poison
Poison baits, while effective, can cause significant damage to the environment. For example, if the pest does not die immediately and is eaten by another animal, the poison is then released into the environment. The mechanical trapping systems from traplinked do not contain any poison and kill the pest immediately if it falls into the trap.
- Easy installation
The installation can be easily done in less than 3 minutes through Plug & Play: After downloading the traplinked app from your app store, all you have to do is activate the WLAN router; set the traps, then activate the Jerry Sensor Module; assign a location to the traps and the system is set up.
- 24/7 permanent monitoring
Our Jerry module monitors the status of your traps 24/7 and reports at regular intervals set by the user, even when nothing is happening (i.e. even if no snap trap has been triggered) to guarantee the reliability of the permanent monitoring.
- Flexible application
The traplinked traps and modules are available in different sizes. Thanks to their stable and weatherproof design, they can basically be installed anywhere and managed via a central app.
- Reliable documentation
Where and when did the pest infestation take place or which trap was triggered? Thanks to the automatic documentation, users can get an exact picture of the pest infestation in their storage facilities at any time.
- Energy-saving system
We have equipped the device with rechargeable batteries, which, depending on the set heartbeat frequency, can operate on one charge for up to 1.5 years.
Our module, called Jerry, is located in the center of the trap tunnel. By using magnetic switches, the device checks the triggering status of the traps and sends notification to the traplinked server at regular intervals that can be set by the user. Jerry module reports redundantly even when nothing is happening to guarantee the reliability of the permanent monitoring. The module is conveniently connected to the WLAN that is usually available on site or to a mobile WLAN router. To serve the needs of our customers, we also supply the M2M SIM card for mobile WLAN router with an optimal data volume at maximum cost efficiency (at least 10 times as economical as regular SIM cards).

- Simple & intuitive design
We focus on intuitive operation, a tidy, clear interface and working speed - everything should be done in as few clicks as possible.
- Concise statistics
The traplinked app is peppered with numerous viewing and sorting options for your devices, so that you can easily and intuitively keep track of things: for example, you can display the event history of all devices placed at a location, or look at the past messages of a single one Jerry module.
- Compatible with different devices & operating systems
PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone - you can easily view the status of your traplinked systems with any internet-enabled communication device, from anywhere in the world! The mobile app is compatible for both Android & iOS.
- Flexible working in teams
In the traplinked app you work in a team. In doing so, the initial user can create additional accesses and assign roles so that everyone from the team knows what needs to be done and has the overview.
- Transparency through customer guest access
The app offers an observer function which allows pest controllers to share access to the documents with their customers, providing more insights to the customers and thus increasing transparency.
The flexible Jerry system is currently available in 6 different versions, for both mice and rats.
In the fight against the mouse, Jerry sits in the popular Nagtag, Speed-break or GSG tunnel with snap traps from the quality manufacturer KNESS. Due to the fact that the module is located inside the tunnel, the placement of the tunnel is not restricted. In addition, the protection to your mouse trap in challenging environments such as production sites is optimal with the metal protection plate.
Jerry also fits into rat cage stations: AF, Nagtag rat bait box and rat trap metal tunnel. By using a module-fitting bridge between the beating traps, the function is ensured. Since Jerry is robust and weatherproof, nothing stops it from being used in outdoor areas.
The system can be ordered in different package sizes conveniently in the shop! It is always more economical when buying in sets!
