House.. Traps ready? Huh?

So I made this house by the church an outpost. It says traps ready. What's it mean and what do I do?

I'm pretty sure that means that traps have been setup near the outpost to waylay any hordes that happen by.

The devs talked about this in one of the Arcade preview vids. You'll have to tell us how it works out if you see it.

If a horde stumbles into one of your outposts they will trigger the traps and die.

An excellent an in-depth post about outposts.

Outposts will set up firebomb traps for hordes. They don't detonate for single zombies, though. And after they go off, they have a one minute cooldown before the traps are reset.
