Remotely Activated Trapping System (RATS)
There have been a few changes to the system since I shot the original video below. I plan to shoot a new video soon but, the changes are as follows:
- Updated charge controller that allows customizable disconnect and connect voltages and can be set to disconnect the power load during the day to maximize solar charge.
- Udpated control card that will notify you via text when the battery has been disconnected so a dead battery isn’t a surprise. The new card is also activated by placing a phone call instead of sending a text.
- Larger, 20W solar panel.
- Larger, 18aH capacity battery.
- Your choice of the Covert or HCO Spartan cellular cameras. Unless specified otherwise, the HCO Spartan is included.
- No longer include a solar panel and rechargable batteries for the camera. These just didn’t work as anticipated in the field so instead this includes a set of lithium batteries. If you would prefer to use an external battery for longer life, that can be substituted for the lithium batteries.
Pricing on this is as follows:
Complete System: Includes 48″ Saloon or Guillotine Door with electronics and camera – $1,600.00
Door electronics and camera only for use on your own door – $1,300.00
Door electronics only for use with your own camera and door – $900.00
Electronics and Camera rental (inlcudes cellular service) – $500.00 deposit, $100.00/mo. Deposit will be refunded, minus any costs for repairs, at the time the equipment is returned. If you rent the system for 11 consecutive months, we’ll retain the deposit and the system becomes yours.
I can set this up on any door you’d like so if you would prefer a different type or size of door, give me a call to discuss.
Lead time on this is currently about 2 weeks.
I am actively seeking distributors in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma. If you would like to add hog traps, gates and accessories to your product offerings, please contact me for details on wholesale pricing and terms.
If you need something specific and don’t see it on the site, please email or call me (Bernie) at 832-524-8299 to talk about your project. If I don’t answer, I’m probably in the shop so please, leave me a message and I will call you back.
Please understand that I’m a one man operation so I may not be able to answer your call and can be in and out during the day. Please call or text me before heading over to be sure I’m here and have inventory. I can also make arrangements to meet you on weekends or in the evening if needed, as long as we plan ahead.
I accept cash and all major credit cards for payment. Sorry, no checks.
