I've been hearing some animal rummaging around under the house. My guess is that it's a opossum, armadillo, or groundhog since I've spotted all 3 in the yard at one time or another over the past 6 months. I can't find it's entryway so it may have burrowed to get up under there. So what to do? I went and bought one of these traps:
Since I've bought a [ahem] "few" spare sensors lately, why not connect the trap to the smart house to where I don't have to go check the trap? So I used velcro and a twist-tie (as backup since the door is quick) to secure the magnet to the door and a couple more twist-ties to temporarily mount an Iris v1 contact to the top of the cage. I put chunks of apple up in the trap and slide it just inside the access door to under the house. A quick RM rule to let me know if it's sprung:
Hopefully in the next day or so Alexa will let me know to retrieve the trap and haul the beastie a long way from here.
