Stern Environmental Group announces the launch of Stern's Real Time Monitoring (RTM) Devices for bed bug monitoring for use in hotels, dormitories, shelters, and nursing homes. Stern Environmental Group, an innovator in the extermination and control of bedbugs, has announced that it will be selling a device with unique visualization technology integrated into a trapping mechanism for real time bedbug monitoring. This new high tech bedbug monitor will send notifications, including pictures of pests entering the device, over the cloud as emails or SMS; allowing for real time monitoring of bedbug activity in multiple locations.
Working in conjunction with a specialized technology firm, Stern Environmental Group will be selling the device branded as Stern's Real Time Monitoring (RTM) Device. Stern Environmental Group will sell the first monitoring product which is geared to bed bugs to the hotel and motel industry, colleges for use in dormitories, shelters, and nursing homes for real time bedbug monitoring.
The launch of this first product heralds a new era of real time pest control monitoring for the pest control industry. It will lower personnel costs associated with the monitoring of traps, bedbug dog inspections, and lower treatment costs through early detection. Many major hotels in New York City are expressing serious interest in the product as the "way of the future".
How It Works
Visualization technology used in this device solves the problem of the high personnel costs associated with routine inspection of pest control traps. The first product to be sold using this specialized, cloud-integrated, real time technology will be targeted to the monitoring of bed bugs. By cutting the cost of personnel needed for the weekly inspection of old technology bed bug monitors and glue traps by pest control and housekeeping personnel, these devices will quickly provide a return on investment. The initial bedbug monitoring device's price is scheduled to be around $100. Stern Environmental Group believes that this new cloud-based monitoring technology will have many uses, including stored product pests, and has larger devices available to monitor for rodents and pest wildlife.
Stern's RTM (Real Time Monitoring) for bed bugs is palm-sized and has two traps consisting of heated, closable pest containment drawers, a lure compartment with dispenser, and LED alert trigger light. When powered on, Stern's RTM device for bedbugs, continuously captures images of the two heated containment drawer chambers. Using proprietary visualization technology the device recognizes if a pest has entered into one of the two chambers, minimizing false positives. See animated image to the above showing a bed bug climbing up to the device and then in and the LED becoming illuminated.
After a pest is detected, Stern's RTM device turns on an external LED alert light and sends an alert message to the Cloud along with images from the drawer compartments. It may also be programmed to close the drawer compartment doors. Using the cloud software, the client can configure to receive the images and alerts by email and/or text message. The alert along with additional details is recorded in the devices’ cloud control panel. The device is small, yet technologically powerful, measuring 3 and 5/8 inches wide by 3 inches tall and 3/4 of an inch deep. It connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi.
The Future: Lowering Personnel Costs and Enabling Less Costly Early Treatment
Ushering in a new era in pest control, Stern's RTM for Bedbugs, is the first pest monitoring device that allows for real time monitoring using Wi-Fi connectivity and image visualization technology. Although this relatively inexpensive device may not be right for every commercial situation, Douglas Stern, Managing Partner of Stern Environmental Group says, "Real time monitoring is the future for the pest control industry. This new product advances innovation while cutting personnel and treatment costs. By knowing which rooms need further inspection and/or treatment as well as providing proof of infestation at early and manageable stages, the device allows the property's management to solve pest problems quickly and to save money in personnel and treatment costs."
