Control Button

The control button opens a popup. You can see:

  • Signal Strength

  • Temperature

  • Last Heard time

  • Sound the alarm

  • Share the trap with other users

Expand ⬇️

The options icon is located at the bottom of the trap tab. You can view the camera and map.


You can share traps with other users within the traps options popup. Enter the email of an existing OcuTrap users email to share the trap. You cannot share with yourself, non-OcuTrap users, or double share traps. If the email fits these conditions, an email will be sent and the trap will appear at the bottom of the shared user's traps page under the Shared section.

When the trap is shared, the shared user can perform the activites of a regular trap, except the shared user cannot share the shared trap with other users.

Changing trap name

Click on the current name of the trap such as "52353454" or "Farm Trap". A pop-up will appear and you can rename the trap.
