Smart Pest Systems
Spotta™ is a revolutionary way to prevent the harm bed bugs can cause to occupants, reputation and earnings.
Our smart, discreet network of intelligent Pods continuously monitor for pests. This enables you to solve the problem, before it spreads.
Dealing with bed bugs can cost tens of thousands each year.
It’s impossible to stop bed bugs entering your property, so how can you protect the occupants and your reputation?
Online review websites are the first point of call when choosing where to stay.
Any contact with bed bugs will lead to poor reviews and ratings. This causes reputational damage and loss of earnings.
Spotta provides continuous monitoring, protecting every room in real time.
Our alerts enable you to take swift action. With Spotta you can avoid negative reviews, compensation and operational disruption.
Finding bed bugs early also makes treatment easier and less expensive.
Simply place a Bed Pod under each mattress. The Pod automatically connects to our network.
You can check everything's working on our console.
Bed bugs in the room are attracted to the lure
contained in the Pod's cartridge, which simply snaps on and is replaced annually.
Bed bugs that enter the Pod trigger the suite of
sensors inside. The system analyses the insect
and transmits the data to the console.
On identifying a bed bug, we email the picture and say when and where it was taken.
You can choose who this is sent to.
HOW IT WORKS

How do I install the Pod?
The Pods are completely wireless and battery powered. Installation involves peeling off a self adhesive pad and putting it on the bed frame. This takes less than a minute per Pod. (Other mounting options are also catered for, depending on bed type. Contact us to discuss). The Pod automatically connects to our network and you can see that it’s working on the console.
How will I be told when a bed bug is detected?
What servicing does it need?
Once each year we supply replacement snap-in cartridges. You just swap these out and use the packaging to send the old ones back to Spotta for recycling. This takes a few seconds per Pod.
My WiFi coverage isn’t great - will Spotta work in my property?
Spotta's Pods connect to a different kind of wireless network called LoRa. We provide LoRa gateways as part of the service. Typically one gateway will cover about 200 pods. These LoRa gateways need to be connected to the internet via wired ethernet or via WiFi. Poor WiFi connection for the gateways can lead to the Pods being unable to communicate with our servers. As such we always recommend a wired connection where possible.
What do I tell my guests if they ask about the Pod?
If anyone asks, you can reassure them that the sensors only check inside the Pod. They are not able to detect anything outside the Pod. Spotta collects no information on the (human!) occupants of the room.
Will Spotta tell me about other insects?
Our Pods for accommodation are designed to attract and detect bed bugs. However, we do also sometimes detect clothes moths, carpet beetles and silverfish. On the console, you can choose which species you wish to be informed about.
