    Review based on delivery/setup only. Not had time to evaluate motion detection/battery life. Ordered units Sunday lunchtime, arrived lunchtime Monday – before requisite batteries (4/unit), ordered separately, which arrived Wednesday. Cannot fault Primrose. Instructions for installing batteries included but not for setting dials! Need to check website for that. Suggest fixing ground spike to unit before installing batteries. Mention made of red light showing activation – light is actually blue! Try to find appropriate screw driver to fix battery cover plate. Once located in ground, activation can be confirmed by walking past at different distances/angles, noting when blue light flashes.

    It at face value works , detects movement, been out in the wet. Trouble is the cats keep doing their busy right in the line of devices detection zone, so its fundamental reason to be there to deter cats does not work. 10/10 for all the non essential funtions, but useless for purpose advertised. Not sure i will be able to comment on battery life, as i can think of many other things to use them on, that work!!! Before they run out.

    After getting sick of picking up cat poo off my front lawn pretty much every day I resorted to buying these ultrasonic cat scarers.
    I actually caught the white cat in the video doing its business red handed a couple of weeks ago ony grass
    Almost 2 weeks on and no poo.
    Yes, it’s early days but they do work.
    The cats don’t exactly run off but they certainly don’t crap on my lawn and just walk away. Even the white one.

    Works great for a few months now, makes sure you have it on the right dial strength
    I have waited to review this for a few months, works really well I have 2 on either side of my front door. Used to have foxes pooing in the front of my house and they stopped when I got these 2 deterrents. Had battery go once and had a fox poo next day.
    Also I can see motion from the ring doorbell at night, showing foxes run past and not sit around like they used to. Make sure you put it at the right place on the dial see instructions and google i

    After a miss-delivery, got this product the following day. First attempt couldn’t find my address. Wales is a bi-lingual country and delivery drivers navigate by google maps which is English only, so some drivers might need to familiarize themselves. Had no problem with prior deliveries.

    As for the product, it was an easy assemble. Important to note when inserting the batteries, a rubber gaskit is supplied with the product that needs to be used before screwing the hatch closed. This prevents rain getting in and the corrosion some other reviewers have commented upon. Once assembled, and setting the frequency and sensitivity dials to half-way, I placed these cat scarers at strategic positions.
    Within an hour, I could hear the scamper of paws and startled meow as a regular pooper legged it out of my garden. An inspection the following morning I observe no poops on the lawn nor on the borders, which previously was a daily nightmare. What I also observed is the cats have now started to poop in their new home territory, the neighbors garden, the one who owns the cat hareem.

    They work!

    I cannot comment on the battery life yet, but have used rechargeable AA batteries, and the product lights up when activated, so easy to see when they need a recharge.

    They do work.

    I purchased the two pack of these sensors after trying citronella pellets, which did nothing to stop four feral farm cats from leaving the most disgusting ‘deposits’ on my lawn and flowerbeds. They seem quite robust although the battery compartment screws are tiny and I struggled to get them all the way in. As I was concerned about water ingress, I covered the back of the units with several layers of brown parcel tape, which has worked well. Since installing them about five weeks ago, I haven’t had a single mess. It remains to be seen if the cats get used to the sensors, but so far I am very pleased. I have set the dial to 6, the top range suggested for cats. I can’t hear anything but my 22 year old son certainly can!

    I bought the motion detectors to stop the cats using my front lawn as a toilet! They seem to be working well. You have to assemble them but this is simple – attach the spike for inserting into the ground and put some AA batteries in place (not supplied) along with the rubber seal to make them waterproof. Put the back on with the screws provided (they are small and a little fiddly). Since positioning them and setting the frequency No cats have spoilt my lawn. Can’t say how long the batteries will last but can detect when they’re working as there’s a blue light that shows when movement is detected.

    Life was a misery as cats played and chilled on my hot tub cover all the time. The cover was being ruined and I had to wash it daily and that involved washing it twice and buffing it. I was afraid they would start digging their claws in and completely ruin it. Bought these and we saw paw prints get less and less. They were jumping on but getting off really quick. I’m very pleased and having a relaxing dip really is that now. Definitely recommend

    These scarers have been a miracle in my garden. I was always clearing up cat mess and after a few days of operating the cat scarer there are no cats in the garden and no mess at all. I could hardly believe it when I dug the garden and no dirt turned up overnight. I can thoroughly recommend this product to do what it says.

    Bought a pair of these a year ago as we were being troubled by a fox messing on our lawn, lots of bare patches and occasional muck. Set them at opposite ends of the lawn making sure all areas were covered. Within a week or so, no issues. Pity the grass didn’t grow again so quickly. Then we moved them to our daughter’s house where she had a cat messing up her flower beds. Again it worked with a few weeks. Finally moved one of them to the front of her house where the gardens are open plan and people kept letting their dogs mess on her small lawn. With a few weeks, all clear. Unfortunately that device then stopped working, despite changing the batteries. We did find that the units are prone to damp inside and the batteries begin to corrode, so keep checking them. Work fine though.

    Love these, had problems with neighbours cats fouling in my garden, since buying these i no longer have that problem. I found them to be sturdy, you can adjust the frequency of the soar which is good. They are weather proof even in snow and I found they had a good battery life for a few months but this was in a back garden where there isn’t much activity. Yes I would definitely recommend these

    I had a real problem with cats using parts of my garden as a toilet twice daily, I bought this product and used just one of the sensors, true to form the cat/s worked out how to move their toilet to a new part of the garden, so the second sensor came out of the box and I lined them up so the garden is covered with both sensors, absolute BINGO, not seen a cat or it’s stuff for three weeks, brilliant device! Well worth purchasing

    Great product works well. Watched a cat walk passed it. Jumped 3 foot in air, then high tailed it out of my garden. Only thing I would charge is the battery life. Needs improving

    Golden Review Award: 5 From Our UsersI’ve waited nearly a year to write this review as I wanted to see if these really worked or not. I’m pleased to say that they do! I regularly found faeces on the front lawn, and I tried various pellets and products but none seemed to work. I don’t know whether the problem was from a fox, cat or a dog, but whatever was producing it, it stank. The front lawn is small, about 5m x 3m and I deployed both of the motion detectors in a different corner each. In the last year I’ve only had to deal with one instance of fouling, and that was in the first few weeks of using the detectors, which makes me wonder whether the animal went to toilet as usual and decided that they couldn’t put up with the noise and never returned.

    I’ve gone for 4 stars rather than 5 only because my children, who are in their twenties, can hear the detectors when they walk to the front door when they visit. My wife and I are in our fifties and can’t hear the detectors at all.

    Battery life seems good as well. I bought rechargeable AA batteries at the same time and they last 2-3 months in each detector before I need to recharge them.

    I purchased these with some trepidation having read the other reviews. We still get cats in our garden but they do not stay! I feel these have had the desired affect and would buy them again. We have had these for some time now and the cats have stayed away! Battery life depends on how often they are triggered so this is subjective but we do not find they eat the batteries. We have one out on our front garden and touch wood no cat doings so far!

    The cat scarers were bought for my sister as her neighbour’s cat was spraying on her plants and causing them to die. It was also pooing on the lawn. Within 24 hours of using the scarers, the cat has stopped using her garden as a toilet. I cannot comment on the waterproof question, as we are in the middle of a heatwave. However, the scarers look robust. As she has only been using the scarers for three weeks, I cannot comment on the battery life. She is delighted with the product and would recommend them 100%. I would just say that she spent time working out exactly where to put the scarers for maximum benefit.

    We had a problem with cat excrement on our new artificial lawn. This happened on a daily basis and I would clear the mess. Installing these bad boys has led to a reduction, although this was not immediate: possibly due to the cats still intrigued by the new garden! After two weeks of use, no more cat excrement in the garden! Hooray.

    Unfortunately one of the repellants was dead out of the box, despite trying different batteries. However the other repellant is taking care of the job! Amazon have been excellent in arranging an exchange.

    Installing the batteries is difficult because the tiny Phillips head screws do not always sit properly creating the possibility of stripping the heads. To avoid future problems, we just used electrical tape to secure the back, but we are not sure this will be sufficiently weather-proof.
    Otherwise, there have been no more of the feral cats my neighbor feeds lurking underneath the bird feeders, which was our goal.

    Nothing to dislike about this product. After putting up with my neighbours cat leaving parcels on my lawn and gravel. A friend recommended this product to me. Since I put both items on my lawn. There hasn’t been any unwanted parcels. I did turn both dials on each product up to the maximum. That was 10 days ago. Really impressed with this product.

    So we’ve had these set up for 3 nights now to deter 2 foxes that are enjoying wrecking the garden. So far we haven’t noticed any significant change to their visiting habits, we will continue to change location & sound frequency til hopefully the foxes get fed up & move on. Only time will tell I guess!!
    Detection sensors are good, pick up movement from good distance. Sound is also good, we have to take them somewhere out of the way every morning as it does irrate the dog, an on/off switch would be of great use!
    Jury still out on these but keeping fingers crossed as not really sure what to do next!!

    I purchased this product as neighbour’s cat was using my rear garden as a toilet nightly. They have been in use now for approx 1 month and since I installed them I’ve not had to contend with cleaning up cat poo.
    Can’t comment on ‘weatherproof’ and ‘battery life’ as the weather has been dry and not had the detectors long enough to comment, but otherwise I am very pleased with them.
