The TRAPMASTER has an acoustic / optical test mode that allows you to check if the sensor was installed correctly. No SMS are sent during this test (and no charges incurred).


1. Press the “Set/Reset” button. A short beep sounds.

2. Now close the trap doors and open them again. A beep sounds as soon as the proximity switch and magnet are close enough together. You should hear a continuous tone when the trap is in “set” status.

3. Close the trap. The acoustic signal should stop.


You have now confirmed that the sensor (and magnet) has been installed correctly. The test mode automatically ends after 2 minutes. You can also end it manually at any prior time by pressing the “Set / Reset” button again. Finally, the TRAPMASTER sends a “Ready“ message.
