Arctic Systems

Our big cites are growing every day. Our lifestyles and ever-increasing population densities are creating perfect conditions for rats and other rodents to thrive.  As our use of resources increases, we are becoming more aware of treating our environment with the care it deserves.  In rodent terms this has seen a reduction in the amount of rodenticide used, good for humans and animals, and also good for the rats too.

This is where Arctic Systems steps in.  Our goal is to bring new smart methods into play, to reduce rodent numbers without rodenticides.  By using our Smart City Platform and mechanical traps mounted with our RATMO IoT monitoring device, councils and companies can now monitor their rat traps and plan effective routines for rodent control.

Arctic System is a Danish start-up founded in 2016 by pest control professional of 20 years Rune Barslund, and product designer of 20 years experience Alistair Morton.  With a combined focus of creating an industrial solution based on hardcore industry requirements and state of the art methods and technologies.

The industry is changing, join us and be part of the digital revolution….


Push Messages, Release March 2019.

Another welcome feature we have rolled out this year is push messaging. This feature was top of our users wish list in 2018, so we are really looking forward to hearing the feedback on this one.  Push messaging can be turned on or off under settings in the Smart City App, there are also options to have the messaging turned off in the evening, or during the night, to allow some well earned rest and relaxation for the service staff.

Our push messaging works via the app, so for those of you with a smart watch you can look forward to a little on the wrist update too!

IBM Think Vegas


(April 2018) Arctic Systems and our Partner MobilePeople are attending IBM Think in Las Vegas this week from Monday to Thursday. MobilePeople have developed the software behind our revolutionary Ratmo IoT-rat trap device that runs on IBM Cloud. The World is watching this innovation because it’s the first trap device with machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms, providing a new level of rodent control data via Arctic Systems’ Smart City Platform.

Køge Council Sign up for trail

NEWS – 27 Feb. 2018  Køge Council signs with Arctic Systems for a unique rodent control pilot project. 

The council’s focus is a more effective use of resources as well as the environmental benefits of a poison free program.   The digital platform from Arctic Systems will allow for data collection showing the time, location and feeding habits of each rodent caught.  Seen in a larger perspective this data and trend mapping will give new insights and understanding of rodent behaviour. This will allow the council to counter-act any rodent problems more effectively in the future.
