The Sentricon Scout device drives operational efficiencies during annual inspections by quickly locating in-ground stations. It operates as a radio frequency identification (RFID) reader for in-ground RFID tags affixed to Sentricon Termite Baiting System stations. When a tag is found, an audible alert is sounded. As soon as the tag is fully read, its information is displayed on the handheld component of the Scout. This new technology is available to Certified Sentricon Specialists, as well as available as a retrofit for older Sentricon systems.
