For landscape-scale (i.e. 1,000 ha+) predator-free initiatives, ZIP has designed the OutPost automated reporting system to enable timely and cost-effective transfer of data from the field. The OutPost system is compatible with the ZIP PosStop, and can reduce the labour costs associated with servicing a network of leghold traps by over 90%.
The OutPost system includes:
LoRa (low-powered radio)-enabled automated reporting trap nodes
Satellite boxes to receive and transmit data
Access to ZIP webserver to notify trap status
Installation and ongoing support from Zero Invasive Predators
Each component of the system comes with a 2 year warranty and expected battery life of 5 years under normal usage. The number of each component required will be unique to each predator free project, depending on a range of factors including scale, terrain and species present.
