Contech Scarecrow Motion Activated Sprinkler Review
The Cat Training Aid is a powerful piece of equipment; with a motion detector sensitive enough to detect movement over 1000 square foot area. The great thing about this product is that it provides a consistent and unflinching level of protection.
Many animals are clever enough to figure out ways around obstacles trying to prevent them from reaching their destination. However, this sprinkler is proven to get them time and time again. Before long the pets learn that they are not up to the challenge posed by this obstacle.
Due to the motion activation, this deterrent is intended for use against larger pests such as deer, cats, dogs, raccoons, or even birds. It is strictly intended for outdoor use.
Water is sprayed in short directed bursts powerful enough to get their attention without harming the animal. The unexpected jolt and sudden wetness is more than enough to send most yard and garden pests scampering away. And since the sprinkler is only spraying water – something your garden already needs – it is perfectly safe.
The Motion Activated Sprinkler is easy to set up. It requires only a hose connection for the water supply and a standard 9volt battery for its power supply. The sprinkler head is mounted on a 17 inch stake for easy and stable installation. A single sprinkler will cover over a 1000 square foot area and multiple sprinklers may easily linked to provide a more expansive coverage area. It’s also lightweight and may be quickly and easily moved if you want to vary your defense patterns.
This is a subtle and effective yard pest deterrent and is ideal for anyone who is looking for a pest deterrent that integrates easily and naturally into any garden or outdoor space.
At first glance this product may seem a bit expensive compared across the full market of pest repellent products, however, within the motion detection sprinkler category; the Contech Scarecrow is something of a bargain, especially considering that it has roughly 1800 5 stars reviews.
If you are concerned about the sprinkler detecting your pets or children at play then consider the pro tip of including a sprinkler timer as part of your install so you can activate the system only at certain times of the day or night.
