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 locations.
Three 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.
Download Victor® Pest App
Connect trap to Wi-Fi network
Monitor trap with 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!

I wanted a remote trap for my attic to control mice in a remote location. This gets 1 star for what victor does well, which is the trap 1/2 of the design. The electronic and wireless implementation is very poor. I am an electronics engineer. This is an wireless implementation of the ESP32 wireless chip used in many cheap products like thermostats. I have used these chips in some home products and they work fine, however Victor has managed to mess up the software. If the device disconnects from a dedicated 2.4G network, it will not reconnect automatically. Worst, it will be in high power transmit mode and kill the batteries, then you're done. Sometimes it will transmit and not return to sleep mode, again killing the batteries. I would strongly recommend waiting for a better implementation unless you buy "AA" batteries by the bucket.
I bought this product in Canada, where the price is roughly $80, double the $40 non connected trap.
It failed in its main function, which was notification of function. After some difficulty, I set up a seperate 2.4 GHz network, connected the device to it and checked the status. The page showed connected and 98% battery.
The next day the device notified me that it had been offline for 24 hours. I opened it to find a mouse, dead.
The device failed in its main differentiating point, which is notification.
Buy the cheaper trap without notifications.
I have had two of these for nearly three years now
One of them under my kitchen sink area with difficult access has caught 5 mice over past three years
Love the WiFi notification!! as the traps are in difficult access areas making checking much easier
I really like these and ...but they short themselves out and become bricks

I really like these and I've caught 50+ mice over the last couple years (I live in the woods near a farm). The problem is that I've bought 8 of them and the electronics keep shorting out and the trap becomes a $50 brick. Only 2 of the 8 are still working. Yes, I've tried new batteries, cleaning the trap surfaces etc -- they are dead as the mice they once caught.
Previously was using glue traps, which become annoying having to check them every day, then I bought these Wi-Fi electronic traps and they are extremely easy to use and receive notifications on your cell phone immediately regardless of where you’re at. The ability to name each trap by location is amazing, by taking all the guess work out of it you will know exactly which trap to empty. If using an iPhone, be sure to set your notification settings to turn on “persistent banner” that way the “Kill” notification message will remain on your home screen until you acknowledge it, otherwise you may miss the brief message., also turn on sounds and badge. Should you happen to catch something you immediately get a notification on your phone and you simply know to empty it out and life is good.
Started out 4 stars but upped to 5 after good customer service. Bought 2 traps and one didn’t seem to be working. Contacted customer service and after a couple troubleshooting emails, they just sent a new one. These traps are so great!
Only one missed mouse out of 10. I just saw a liquid trail like he drug himself back out after getting shocked. We have very stubborn mice that I can hear chewing at night, but can’t tell if they are chewing outside trying to get in or are inside the house. I have no attic or access. Vaulted ceiling and scissor trusses. I had to drill a 4” hole in the ceiling above a closet to set a trap on top of the insulation then plug the hole. With these electronic traps they can set for weeks without checking in remote locations then notify me when a mouse is caught. I have caught most and now in maintenance mode. Hoping I have all the current entry points plugged, but they never give up trying to chew their way in. I am putting out poison to create a perimeter around the house
I bought two mouse traps and one rat trap to deal with the constant mice and packrat issues we have here on the edge of the desert. In two years of constant use, these have trapped an average of 2 critters per week in various areas in and around the property. They go through a set of batteries about once every 5 weeks at that rate (as long as they get a Wifi signal...if they don't, its about 5 days). I have been there to empty a triggered trap in mere moments after triggering and haven't ever found a live or semi-live critter, so I say this is a humane as I could ask for. The old wind-up box-style traps of my youth were nightmares of multi-mouse cannibal houses that I hated to empty. These are quick and clean. For what it is worth, I have tried all kinds of bait and have settled on peanut butter as the best - it has good "smell range" to attract the critters and they have to crawl in good and snug to try to eat it, resulting in a clean kill and much less bait-stealing.
Initial setup can be a pain in the butt, but it can be made easier by turning off the 5gHz band of your router for a few minutes while setting these up. Better firmware would be appreciated to get around that issue and make setup easier.
Purchased six of the mouse units in May, 2021. Had no problems with battery depletion of WiFi connectivity. Prepped all the units (cleaned, fresh bait, brand new Duracell alkaline batteries) for the upcoming winter season. Within two days, three of the units have lost connectivity, despite all having a STRONG WiFi signal. In troubleshooting the units, all had battery voltages of 1.2 volts or less. If this is the case, the cost of batteries will be excessive. Great traps when they work, but given their initial cost and battery consumption, I can purchase dozens of large glue traps to do the same job.
