WE LIVE IN A CONNECTED WORLD – YOUR MOUSE TRAP CAN, TOO Just because you have a mouse problem, it doesn’t mean mice should constantly be at the forefront of your mind. With the Victor® Smart-Kill™ Wi-Fi Electronic Mouse Trap, you can eliminate the hassle of having to manually check your traps and get back to focusing on everything else in your busy day. But how? The answer lies in the Smart-Kill™ trap’s Wi-Fi capability. This innovative electronic trap pairs with a free app to send notifications to your mobile device when there’s been a catch. It’s the perfect device for people with multiple traps across a variety of rooms or indoor locations.3 Easy Steps to Get Started In addition to offering flexible and convenient rodent control, the Victor® Smart-Kill™ Wi-Fi Electronic Mouse Trap is also easy to set up. In three easy steps, you can have your trap up and running with the ability to monitor multiple traps from your mobile device.Wi-Fi-Capability Gives the Power to Monitor from Anywhere The specially designed app allows you to easily manage your pest control system from one convenient hub. With the app, you’ll receive notifications on your mobile device when a catch is made, letting you know when it’s time to empty your trap without having to check. It will also keep track of the number of kills over each trap’s lifetime, as well as monitoring battery life. Plus, it’s quick and easy to set up and even allows you to give each of your traps a unique name so you know exactly which of your traps has made a kill.High-Voltage Shock Humanely Kills Rodents This powerful device uses advanced smart circuit technology to sense when a mouse enters the tunnel. Once inside, the circuit triggers a high-voltage shock, humanely killing the mouse in seconds. The Smart-Kill™ trap is capable of eliminating up to 100 mice per set of fully charged batteries (4 “AA”). Plus, with this trap, there’s no need for poisons or chemicals, allowing it to be used anywhere inside your home or business.No Escapes – Beveled Columns Keep Mouse in Place To enter the Victor® Smart-Kill™ Electronic Trap, mice pass through a uniquely designed tunnel with beveled columns. These columns direct the mouse further into the tunnel and make it difficult to back out. The columns also help to keep the mouse in place over the trigger plate to prevent escapes, ensuring a 100% kill rate.Removable Kill Chamber Ensures Easy Cleaning The sleek industrial design boasts a removable kill chamber with lid, providing access to the trigger plates so you can easily clean it in between uses. Once a catch is made, power off the trap, remove the kill chamber and open the lid. The trap’s built-in safety switch automatically deactivates the trap when opened. Then simply dispose of the dead rodent in the trash without ever having to touch it!Convenient Bait Cup for Effortless Bait Application With a built-in bait cup, you always know your trap is properly baited. Access the cup by opening the kill chamber lid. The cup is marked on the floor of the trap furthest from the rodent entrance. To get started, use a toothpick or cotton swab to apply a high protein bait such as peanut butter or hazelnut spread in the cup. Place your trap where rodents are known to travel and turn it on!Victor Smart-Kill™ Electronic Mouse Trap Product Details Do you want to know more helpful details about the Smart-Kill™ Electronic Mouse Trap?

Review RateMalfunctioning after 16 mos of use
This trap worked well for about 16 months, then the app began showing the following notification daily: "Your trap has been offline for more than 24 hours. Check your network connection to continue receiving mobile alerts from your Smart-Kill trap." I've done an uninstall/reinstall of the app and a re-set-up of the trap, but the "offline" notifications continue. I expect a longer lifespan out of a $50 device.Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWorks great!
Product works Great, just follow instruction, set everything up as specified and gingo! caught my first mouse.
Review RateGreat Product
Cleaver mouse trap. I am not an internet kind of guy but with a little patience and carefully following the instructions the trap does connect to the internet. I really like not having to go check the trap, just check with your phone. It even tells you when the batteries are low. Great product.
Review RateWorks well if you can get through setup.
Four out of five stars because of setup problems. Once the setup was done it out-performed the best spring traps. Setup was weird and I've been working with wifi devices professionally for decades. The trap announces itself as a router and you're supposed to connect the Victor app to it as a router. That's what didnt make sence to me, but I followed instructions and tried to connect it over and over. Maybe there was a problem with my phone's wifi because when I set the phone to use cellular data instead of wifi it finally registered. The router listed under connections in my phone went back to being my actual router and the trap began to work. It caught one or two mice per night in a cupboard where I found lots of mouse droppings. I had it set up side-by-side with two Victor spring traps and the mice got caught in the electronic trap two times for every time in a spring trap. I used peanut butter for bait. It's best to take the old drying peanut butter out with a q-tip and put in fresh every time.
Review RateSo so
Not well thought out customization of the menus- either on or off. Once said activity but no mouse. Called victor and no help answering. Did catch mouse x2 but text was delayed for two hrs- then noticed a notification. So works ok but really should have a little more tech customization included- sounds , what’s on and what’s off -
Review RateNo Catch
The bait is gone but no mouse in the trap. I guess the mouse reach the bait through the holes.Response From Victor®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RatePoor instructions. Poor customer support.
Let's start with the quality of the instructions which come with the SMART-KILL trap. Has the Victor marketing team ever tested these directions with the people who will try to use them? How about making the entire document larger so the type font size can on the mobile phone screens can be read. Also how about including a drawing? I have just spent one hour trying to figure out where the bait cup is located. Maybe "bait cup" is the wrong word for it if it is where I think it is. I called the support telephone number with no support other than recorded messages which were no help at all. Actually they were very irritating because I would press "0" to talk to a representative only to get put back at the beginning of the call cycle with the recorded message. I called at 9 am on a Saturday. There was no message indicating the customer service hours to talk to a real person.Response From Victor®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

I have been battling Mice in my area for over three years.. I have poison but only seems to work to a certain amount.. I was interested in trying the wifi smart kill.. I purchased two traps and within three day have caught 7 Mice!!.. I like and look forward to getting those alerts.. Clean up and set up is easy.. I like the fact they are killed humanely and I do not even have to look at them.. Just open a bag open the trap and dump.. and throw way..
Review Ratethanks but too expensive
It works, finally. My third one from you. But, too expensive when I do not need or never will use the wi-fi part. thanks, Mary
Review RateCritical info omitted from Smart-Kill Wifi Elecktronic mouse trap instruction manual
Smart kill electronic mouse trap seemed to work great. Setup was easy; just followed directions in instruction pamphlet. Set trap at 11:30 pm; got message that mouse was caught at 6:17am. Wonder if alkaline batteries are better than rechargeable, because newly charged 2300 mAh rechargeable batteries went to 48% charge when set trap and then to 39% after Mouse was caught. UPDATE 9/13/19: Correction: Mouse was NOT caught this morning. Mouse poop and urine were in trap, but no mouse. Per my phoncon w/Ken at 855-5-VICTOR, batteries were probable cause. Why didn't the instruction manual mention this? (When I put in brand new CVS MAX Alkaline batteries, their charge is 93%.) And why can't I get text message alerts? Not happy that I need to reload the trap and hope mouse doesn't avoid it this time!Response From Victor®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

Victor® Smart-Kill™ Electronic Mouse Trap - Frequently Asked Questions
Q: HOW DO I CONNECT THE TRAP TO MY WI-FI?
A: Go to Wi-Fi settings on your mobile device. Select the trap, which is VICTOR following by 15 alphanumeric digits. Press “CONNECT”, then press the back button. Select the Wi-Fi network to connect the trap to. Enter the network password for the Wi-Fi network, then press the red “CONNECT” button. It may take up to 1 minute to connect. A notification appears when the trap successfully connects.
Q: HOW DO I BAIT THE TRAP?
- Be sure that the trap is powered OFF and batteries are removed before baiting the trap.
- Rodents prefer foods that are high in protein and fat. Try using peanut butter, hazelnut spread, chocolate and meats such as bacon or beef jerky. Be careful not to use too much. Rodents have a very strong sense of smell, so only a small amount of bait is needed to attract them to the trap.
- Open the kill chamber lid to access the bait cup, which is located on the floor of the trap, furthest from the rodent entrance.
- Use a cotton swab, toothpick, tweezers or similar tool to place bait so that your scent is not transferred to the trap.
Q: WHERE SHOULD I PLACE THE TRAP?
A: Place the trap on a flat surface against a wall where you have seen signs of rodent activity. The trap should be placed lengthwise with the rodent entrance nearest to the wall.
Q: CAN THE TRAP BE USED OUTDOORS?
A: No, an electronic trap cannot be used outdoors. It uses batteries and electronic components that cannot be exposed to the elements. Placing it outdoors will interfere with the functionality of the trap, causing it not to work.
Q: HOW DO I EMPTY THE TRAP?
- Press the power button to turn the unit OFF.
- Remove the batteries. Open the kill chamber lid and properly discard rodent.
- Clean and bait the trap after each use for most effective results.
- Insert batteries and press the power button to turn the unit back on.
- The trap will automatically reconnect to Wi-Fi. Opening and closing the kill chamber door will re-arm the mouse trap if it has not been powered OFF.
Q: HOW DO I CLEAN THE TRAP?
- Press the power button to turn the trap OFF, then remove the batteries. Hold the trap with the battery compartment in your left hand, buttons facing upwards and the rodent entrance facing towards you.
- With your right hand push forward and separate the kill chamber from the electronics housing.
- The kill chamber is now ready for cleaning. Open the rodent disposal door. Use a hydrogen peroxide topical solution (available at most drug stores) and an old toothbrush to clean the inside of the chamber. If needed, use a wire brush to remove any corrosion, being careful not to be too vigorous. This could accidentally remove all of the protective zinc plating. Thoroughly dry the interior and exterior of the kill chamber prior to trap reassembly.
- To reassemble trap, hold the battery compartment in your left hand, buttons facing upwards. Hold the kill chamber in your right hand with the rodent entrance facing towards you. Align the key holes and insert keys into opposite openings while pulling your right hand backwards to reconnect the halves. The trap is ready for use.
Q: WHAT TYPE OF BATTERIES DOES THE TRAP USE?
A: The trap requires 4 “AA” batteries. Be sure to use new, fully charged batteries for best results.
Q: WHAT DO THE APP NOTIFICATIONS MEAN?
A: Please visit our support section for more information on app notifications.Learn More »
