Features of the PestAway Ultrasonic Outdoor Animal & Cat Repeller

Best Ultrasonic cat ScarerEffectively Repels pests:

The PestAway scarer is effective on the following pests:
Cats, Dogs, Rodents, Rats, Mice, Birds, Bears, Deer, Raccoon, Skunk, Rabbits, Squirrels, Ducks, Geese, etc.

It would appear that this unit will scare any animal with ears!

Weather Resistant

Not being water-resistant is a problem I’ve noted for other makes of ultrasonic scarers. The good news is that there has not been a single complaint of failure due to rain for this product.

Easy To Install

Pace it on the ground or fix it to a wall this like most other ultrasonic repellers very easy to set up. Point it in the direction where you think your pest problem is, turn it on and let it get on with its job.

Lightweight

There is very little to an ultrasonic repeller, hence its light weight. This helps makes it very easy to install.

40 foot (12 meter) range

The motion sensor can detect heat and movement up to 40ft. away. While not the greatest range compared to top ultrasonic repellers this is a very respectable distance not far off the best.

Maintenance Free

Put in the batteries, fix in position and leave it to scare pests, just replace batteries when needed.

3 Repelling Technologies

  • Ultrasonic

This is the main irritant to pests and most likely to scare your cats away.

  • Optional audible alarm

The audible alarm (to us) is another layer of irritant and makes it more likely for pests to move on. You can even use this as an intruder alarm.

  • Ultra-bright strobe lights

I know this works to keep cats from doing their business in your garden. As cats like calm quiet areas, the flashing lights definitely irritate them.

Good and Bad Points

I do like the strobe lights it’s yet another layer of irritant to pests and more likely to make them move on.

There are no real problems with the PestAway Ultrasonic Outdoor Animal & Cat Repeller however unlike some other ultrasonic units you are not able to set the frequency to target just one type of pest, this is an irritant to all animals and birds. Not a big problem but some of you may have a specific pest problem but still want other animals (like birds) to visit your garden.

PestAway Ultrasonic Outdoor Animal & Cat Repeller vs bestselling Yard Sentinel

The PestAway ultrasonic repeller has one great advantage over the bestselling Yard Sentinel and that is the inclusion of a strobe light… The more irritants you can throw at a pest the better chance you have to keep your yard clear of them.

However that is the only advantage that the PestAway has, the Yard sentinel comes with many other features missing from the PestAway unit, like different ways to power it including plugging it into the mains (truly maintenance free). The Yard sentinel a greater and adjustable detection range and it has the great feature of just being able to target just one particular pest not all.

Conclusion of my review of the PestAway Ultrasonic Repeller

While no ultrasonic pest / cat repeller is 100% effective (see my post on ultrasonic repellers). The PestAway Ultrasonic Outdoor Animal & Cat Repeller is a competent unit with a better than average results, probably because of the strobe light, so if you want a pest free garden I have no hesitation in recommending the PestAway cat repeller as a good buy.

It Works! 6-in-1 Pest Soldier Sentinel Review

Welcome to my review of the 6-in-1 Pest Soldier Sentinel. At last a cat repeller that seems to work, but does it have any flaws and how does it stack up against the bestselling Yard Sentinel?

In this review I’ll be looking at the Pest Soldier Sentinel features and expanding on them, letting you know what they do, if they are a benefit to you or just hype. I’ll then compare it with the best-selling ultrasonic scarer on Amazon and let you know which I think is better. I’ll find out what other buyers think of the Soldier Sentinel and then end with my conclusion and recommendation.

If you have come from YouTube just looking to purchase the 6-in-1 Pest Soldier Sentinel please find a link here.

Features of the 6-in-1 Pest Soldier Sentinel

I was unable to confirm this statement; however on Amazon the Yard Sentinel has more sales than the soldier Sentinel.

  • coverage up to 5,000 square feet

The Soldier Sentinel matches the largest area covered by the best ultrasonic scarer on the market and can detect pests up to 50ft away.

  • Use Anywhere

There is no end of places that this device can be used in. The most obvious is in the garden, place it in a flower bed or attach to a wall with the screws that are included. However the places that people use the Soldier Sentinel is quite ingenious. From bird houses to hen huts, indoors, in cars also cabins, shed, attic, farm, barn, warehouse, patio. One ingenious use was to put it on the outside of your fence so the pests don’t even come close to your property!

  • The most powerful PIR infrared motion sensor available

PIR – Passive Infrared Sensor. As I have stated above the range of the Soldier Sentinel cat repeller has a fantastic range and is equal to the best on the market. The sensor is adjustable so you turn it down to stop the scarer being triggered by people passing on the other side of the fence or by trees in the distance.

  • Adjustable sonic scarer.

The sonic output is adjustable so you can target pests and to make it inaudible to humans.

  • Weatherproof Ultrasonic Pest Repeller

This is what separates this pest repeller from others on the market. There are no complaints at all about rain and weather destroying the pest scarer. (This is a regular complaint about other makes of pest repellers). It uses a unique seal to make it weatherproof allowing you to fix the Soldier Sentinel anywhere.

You can power the Soldier Sentinel from batteries (not included) or from the supplied, very long power lead, or via a vehicles cigarette lighter.

6-in-1 Pest Soldier Sentinel vs Best seller Yard Sentinel

  • Features

The 6-in-1 Pest Soldier Sentinel and the Yard Sentinel are near identical in both features and range with only the design to tell them apart

  • Cost

At the time of writing the Yard Sentinel is on offer at over 50% off and now cheaper than the 6-in-1 Pest Soldier Sentinel … BUT if you know that you will be using your animal repeller outside in the rain I recommend you BUY the 6-in-1 Pest Soldier Sentinel

Roundup of other buyers comments

Unlike most other ultrasonic pest repellers there are no bad comments about build quality and more surprising none about failure due to the weather.

Like all other repellers it is not 100% effective against pests but the 6-in-1 Pest Soldier Sentinel does have better than average positive results

Bad points

There are no bad points that I can find! The reviews are good and it is rich with usable and worthwhile features.

If I was to nit-pick I would like to see the addition of a solar charger, however that would just make this cat scarer more expensive.

Conclusion of the 6-in-1 Pest Soldier Sentinel

Will it stop your pest problem? As mentioned above there is no 100% successful pest repeller but this is one of the better ultrasonic repellers with better than average results.

At this price I believe that the Pest Soldier Sentinel is a very good buy and better than the market leader because of its weather proofing.

Aspectek – Effective Solar Battery Powered Ultrasonic Outdoor Pest and Animal Repeller Review

Want to keep pests out of your garden? In this review I’m looking at the Aspectek – Effective Solar Battery Powered Ultrasonic Outdoor Pest and Animal Repeller just to see how effective it is against pests and I’ll be comparing it against the best seller and cheaper Yard Sentinel.

If you have come to this page from YouTube and just want to buy the Aspectek Ultrasonic repeller you can buy it here USA Amazon.

On with the review. I’ll first cover its features and expand on them letting you know what they do and if they are good and worthwhile. I’ll then compare its features with the bestselling Yard Sentinel, and finally I’ll give you my conclusion and recommendations.

How the Aspectek Ultrasonic animal repeller works

Best Ultrasonic cat ScarerThis is a small discreet Ultrasonic repeller unit that has a motion sensor which is triggered by the movement of pests which then triggers a high frequency blast of noise. Good news this high frequency noise is inaudible to most humans but is extremely annoying to other animals and pests.

The Ultrasonic blast does not harm animals just simply and humanly startles and scares your pest away or makes your yard uncomfortable to be in.

Along with the ultrasonic sound are powerful flashing strobe LEDs which will also startle or annoy pests.

Features of the Aspectek Ultrasonic repeller

Adjustable motion sensor

This adjusts the sensitivity and range of this animal repeller.

The Aspectek Ultrasonic pest repeller has a range of 30ft (9m), if the area you want to keep pests off is less than this, then you can adjust the sensor that movement of pests only in your yard will trigger the ultrasonic sound.

Powerful high frequency

This animal scarer emits a loud high frequency noise that will either scare the pests away or make your yard uncomfortable to be in and hopefully too annoying to for pests to do their business in your flower bed.

Adjustable high frequency noise

Different pests are affected by different frequencies. You can adjust the frequency to target just one type of animal and keep your yard free from that type of pest. It works best against the following animals: cats, dogs, deer, birds, bears, squirrels, rabbits, skunks, bats, rats, foxes, raccoons.

Strong flashing lights

The Aspectek Ultrasonic pest repeller not only uses sound to frighten animals but also flashing lights.

Solar rechargeable

To keep this ultrasonic scarer maintenance free the batteries can be recharged by a solar recharger discretely fitted to the top of this unit.

Weatherproof (IP77) for outdoor use

You would expect this unit to be totally weatherproof, however some people (a lot!) who have bought this product have complained that their pest repellers break down in heavy rain. I have looked up the IP77 rating and have found that this rating is none existent! more in my conclusion.

Other owners comments

There are mixed reviews for the Aspectek Ultrasonic repeller. Most users are happy with this pest repeller and its results, however there are more than I would like who comment that this unit has failed after a rain storm.

When I looked into the weatherproof features on this animal repeller I found that the weatherproof rating (IP 77) is none existent and to me suggests that they have not taken the weather proofing of this unit seriously.

Aspectek Ultrasonic repeller vs Yard Sentinel

  • Range – The Aspectek Ultrasonic repeller has a range of only 30ft while the yard sentinel has a massive 50ft range
  • Features – The Aspectek Ultrasonic repeller also use strobe lights to scare nocturnal pest and a solar recharging feature that the more basic Yard sentinel doesn’t have.
  • Cost – At the time of writing this the bestselling Yard sentinel is cheaper than the Aspectek Ultrasonic repeller.

Conclusion Aspectek – Effective Solar Battery Powered Ultrasonic Outdoor Pest and Animal Repeller.

Due to the high number of negative reviews due to weatherproofing and poor quality I would not recommend the Aspectek Ultrasonic repeller to you.

Instead I still think that the best-selling and at the moment cheaper Yard Sentinel is a much better buy.

Yard Sentinel Dual Review| Stop Barking |Ultrasonic Repeller

Yard Sentinel Dual

All the features you would expect from the best selling ultra-sonic pest repeller “Yard Sentinel”, with the added feature of a dog silencer trainer, do you want to stop your own dog barking or the neighbours. I review this dual feature product and find out if it really works.

Buy now… Or should you?

If you have found my site stopUpest.com and are looking just to buy the Yard Sentinel Dual then I recommend you buy it from Amazon (link here USA, Canada) for their quick delivery, low prices and great service. However SPOILER ALERTDon’t buy it!… Buy the Bark stop pro instead, it’s the same product but it’s cheaper (at time of writing) and has a remote control. But if you are still unsure read the review below.

Features of the dog silencer / trainer

  • Bark recognition technology
  • Adjustable barking sensor
  • Green light barking sensor

Features of the ultrasonic pest repellent

  • Up To 5,000 sq. ft. of coverage range
  • Inaudible High Pressure Ultrasonic Sound Wave
  • Adjustable PIR Infrared Motion Sensor with Night Time Scanner
  • 3 selection technologies: Motion Sensor / Constant / Continue Sweep

  • Easy install and offers great pest protection for almost everywhere.
  • Humane, No Toxic Chemicals.
  • 30 day money back if not 100% satisfied & 1 year manufacturer’s warranty

Features of the Dual Explained

So much crammed into such a small unobtrusive box! Where to start?

The dog silencer trainer… Stop dogs barking

How it works.

When a dog barks in range of the Yard Sentinel Dual (a customer review said it worked up to 50 ft.) it will emit an inaudible high pressure ultrasonic sound wave that dogs find annoying. They bark and the sentinel blasts them, eventually the dog stops barking. Aspectec the manufactures of Yard Sentinel, estimate that training can take up to 2 weeks, however some buyers who have reviewed this product have had immediate results.

Bark recognition technology

Unsure what this is, the manufacturer aspctek.com gave no information. But I guess this is a sensor that can differentiate between loud noises and a dog barking. This will stop the device going off at every loud noise which would cause confusion and make training of a dog useless, another benefit  would be a saving on battery power (if using batteries).

Adjustable barking sensor

You can adjust the sensitivity to detect only close barking, which would make the device trigger only when your dog barks and not the neighbours, or if you are silencing another dog, when the neighbour’s dog barks and not one a few houses away. Again stopping the confusion of which dog you are trying to training.

Green light sensor

Lets you know when the sensor is triggered. Used with the adjustable barking sensor you can tell when the device is triggered and even if it is working.

Other features of the ultra-sonic pest repeller

For an explanation of the other features of this product see my review of the basic but fantastic Yard Sentinel.

Problems with the Yard Dual

This fantastic product is an ultrasonic pest deterrent, dog silencer and an intruder alarm… But it can’t do all 3 at once. You have to choose which one you want it to function as and change it as needs arise.

Verdict…Should you buy it?

If you have a pest problem or want to train dogs to stop barking then this is a brilliant little pest repellent / trainer and I would not normally hesitate to recommend it to you, but as stated above I have found an even better, cheaper model also made by Aspectec and it’s the Bark Stop Pro. It is the same model as above but it also has a remote control making changing settings and dog training even easier.

If you still want the yard sentinel dual then I recommend you buy it from USA Amazon or Canada Amazon, I have not found a better price elsewhere and their fast delivery makes stopping those pests and dog barking even sooner.

Best Selling Yard Sentinel Review

Yard Sentinel

Hi and welcome to my site. Today I’m going to review the best-selling Yard Sentinel and I am going to run through its features, the good points and the bad, then customers reviews and point you in the direction of where to get the best price.

I’m reviewing this mainly as a cat deterrent however my research reveals that many people buy this to repel a vast assortment of animals, from the large (dear, bear) to the smaller (cats and mice) and everything in-between.

Note: If you’ve just landed on this website but you are looking only to buy the Yard Sentinel then click here and go straight to Amazon USA or Amazon UK where you can view the product and prices.

Or you can check out the full review below.

Features

  • Up To 5,000 sq. ft. of coverage range
  • Adjustable PIR Infrared Motion Sensor with Night Time Scanner
  • Inaudible High Pressure Ultrasonic Sound Wave or Intruder Alarm
  • 3 selection technologies: Motion Sensor / Constant / Continue Sweep
  • 3 Time Selections – All the time, day or night
  • AC or Battery Powered
  • Easy install and offers great pest protection for almost everywhere.
  • Humane, no toxic chemicals.
  • Works great against Rodents, Sea Rodents, Seagulls, Insects, Rats, Mouse, Birds, Bears, Deer, Dogs, Cats, Raccoon, Ducks, Geese, Squirrels, Skunks, Foxes…

Main review

How much area does it cover?

This Aspectek sentinel covers a massive 5,000 sq. ft. of your yard that’s a distance of 70 ft. that just one sentinel can keep cat free for you.

Works at night

This scarer comes with a built-in infra-red heat sensor which will detect the heat signature of your pest up to 70 feet away, but it can be adjusted to make it less sensitive if you wish to cover only a section of your yard. Because it uses a heat detector to find pests it will work both day and night… Darkness is not a cover!

Utltrasonic Blast

Pests are hit with an Inaudible High Pressure Ultrasonic Sound Wave when they come into range. Good news, it’s inaudible to humans so we are not affected or inconvenienced by the sound, but it scares the life out of its target.

Can also stop theft

If you select the intruder alarm setting, the yard Sentinel will produce a loud audible alarm letting you know that it has been triggered, so turning it into a burglar alarm.

Settings

There are 3 settings you can use.

  • Motion sensor – This setting triggers the ultrasonic sound only when a heat signature is in range. This is a great setting if you use batteries only.
  • Constant – This gives out a constant ultrasonic sound giving warning to animals and making them uncomfortable to be near.
  • Continuous Sweep – gives out ultrasonic sounds at different frequencies at random time intervals which will startle pests as well as making them uncomfortable to be near.

Next there are 3 time settings “All the time, day or night”. This gives you more options to save power from the battery.

The Yard Sentinel can be powered in various ways. AC via a supplied 33 foot extension cord or 6V – 24V DC battery power sources including a vehicle power source, by connecting to the Cigarette Lighter Socket, and DC Sealed lead-Acid (SLA) battery power source

This yard scarer is very easy to install, either place on the ground or mount to a wall. Just face it towards the area you want to be pest free.

Safe deterrent

A great feature of all ultrasonic pest deterrents is that they just use sound to keep your yard clear. No chemicals or traps are used just sound, making this a humane safe deterrent.

I’m amazed at the number of different pests the Sentinel will scare away. Here is the list again Rodents, Sea Rodents, Seagulls, Insects, Rats, Mouse, Birds, Bears, Deer, Dogs, Cats, Raccoon, Ducks, Geese, Squirrels, Skunks, Foxes…

I hope you have enjoyed the review, check out below some of the comments made by customers who have bought this product, or you can click here Amazon USA or Amazon UK to buy the Yard Sentinel. I recommend you purchase from Amazon for the best prices and prompt delivery.

Customer Comments

One lady with a very large garden was extremely pleased with this device not only did it stop rabbits, deer and other animals from eating her veg patch but it also kept cats and dogs away! How about that, not just one pest problem cured but at least 4 just from one sentinel.

A problem that seems to crop up is that it is too sensitive! Even on the lowest setting it will detect movement 20 feet away.

I’m pleased to say that the majority of comments was positive so I can recommend this product for you.
