In this review I’ll look at the features and compare them with the bestselling Pestbye ultrasonic and see if they are better or not. I’ll go over the features, letting you know if they are useful or just marketing fluff.
I’ll find other owners thoughts about this cheap ultrasonic scarer and see if there are any major faults with it. Finally I’ll give you my conclusion and recommendations about the Selections Ultrasonic Cat Repeller.
Features of the Selections GFA805 Solar Powered Ultrasonic Cat Repeller.
Activated by a Passive Infrared Sensor
No cat can hide from this sensor, working day and night and any weather conditions the infrared sensor can detect the heat from a cat up to 22ft (6.7m), which in turn triggers a sonic blast at the cat.
Comparing this sensor with the PestBye it has the same detection range… no corners cut here.
PIR sensitivity adjuster
Staying with the infrared sensor, just like the Pestbye this is fully adjustable for sensitivity. There are 2 ways to use this. You can adjust how far away the sensor will work, for example if you have a path at the end of your garden you don’t want the ultrasonic repeller going off, draining its battery every time someone walks past.
Or you can adjust for the size of pest you want to repel. Not only does the Selections GFA805 Ultrasonic Repeller work on cats but also big dogs, foxes, squirrels, rodents and right down to insects.
A frequency adjuster is included as well. Some ultrasonic scarers don’t have this and just blast away using the full frequency range, this will scare cats away but also every other animal in your garden including birds.
Being able to adjust the frequency you are able to target just one particular pest (cats) and still have birds visit your garden
My research and reviews of other ultrasonic repellers show that many break down due to rain. Looking at owners comment for this one there has not been one complaint of failure due to rain. Big thumbs up for the Selections Ultrasonic Cat Repeller.
So far this Ultrasonic repeller has stood up to the best-selling PestBye, now it surpasses it for features by including a solar panel for recharging the batteries making this repeller maintenance free. Depending on the weather and position of the unit the batteries can last from 3 months up to a year!
Batteries are included…Yet another plus point over the PestBye which has none.
Every now and again (depending on the amount of sun) the batteries will need recharging and the Selections GFA805 comes with a USB charger, unfortunately you cannot run the unit from the mains as it turns the detector off while recharging.

Flashing light indicates low battery
An easy to see visual flashing light lets you know when the batteries are low. No worry about finding piles of cat poo in your garden because the ultrasonic cat scarer has stopped working.
Mounted on a spike or hung from a wall
Easy to set up… Point at the area you want to keep cats out of your garden and simply place in the ground or hang on a wall or post
Repels other pests
As mentioned above the Selections GFA805 Solar Cat Repeller can keep your garden free from other pests as well as cats. These include dogs, foxes, squirrels, rodents and insects… Also probably every other animal with ears.
Inaudible to humans
The ultrasonic noise should be inaudible to most humans… The older you are the less chance there is of you hearing the sonic sound.
Protected area radius 6-7m (22foot)
The area of protection is very similar to the PestBye and other ultrasonic repellers
It works! At least for most people, unfortunately there are a minority of cats that seem to be immune to the sound and carry on as usual. (no cat repellent is 100% effective)
One fault that I came across was that the batteries supplies are not very good (the first bit of cost cutting) and better rechargeable batteries should be purchased.
The Selections GFA805 Solar Powered Ultrasonic Cat Repeller is not only as good as the bestselling PestBye cat repeller but it is in fact better, added to that it’s also cheaper making this a fantastic buy which that I’m sure will soon be Amazons top seller.
UPDATE: The PestBye as reduced its price to compete with the Selections GFA805, but is still is not as good due to lack of solar recharging.
