Bark Stop ProMain review

Let’s start with the features that stop dogs from barking. Firstly how does it work?

When dog barking triggers the device an inaudible (to humans) High Pressure Ultrasonic Sound Wave is blasted at the offending dog. This noise is an irritant to the dog, which will eventually learn that it’s barking triggers the sound and it should stop barking to avoid the ultrasonic sound. The manufacturer say this should happen within 2 weeks, however some customer reviews say that their dogs stopped barking immediately.

So to the remote control unit

I was unable to find out what 3 of the buttons do, however all the reviews I found of the unit raved about the training button. Pressing this button gives an immediate ultrasonic blast of sound which can be used to train dogs to stop barking but also as a training device to stop dogs from bad behaviour e.g. jumping up at people or on the furniture.

Update… I’ve researched this remote control and found what the buttons do.

Button 1

Standby. This turns the whole unit on or off. If you go out in the yard for gardening or a party you can turn it off remotely so it’s not being activated all the time. When you have finished you can press the button again to turn it off. This saves having to unplug it or removing the batteries.

Button 2

Ultrasonic button. This puts the ultrasonic blaster on standby. If you want to put your own pet out in the yard this will stop it being targeted and blasted by the bark stop unit. Press again to turn it back on.

Button 3

Strobe button. Pressing this puts the strobe light into standby… Press again to turn the strobe light back on.

Button 4

The big red button muhahaha. Pressing the “power” button sets every thing off for 30 seconds… Depending which mode you are in it will set off an Ultrasonic blast, strobe light or audible sonic alarm. After 30 seconds it resets ready for another blast. Most people find this button the most helpful in all aspects of stopping dogs barking to scaring pests from their yard.

Bark recognition technology

This unit can differentiate between barking and other loud noises which is helpful when you only want to train the dog only when they bark and not when traffic passes by.

Adjustable barking sensor

With the sensor being adjustable you can target just the one closest barking dog and not one in the distance.

Green light barking sensor

Because the sound given off is inaudible to the human ear it is handy to see if the Bark Stop is working, especially if you are adjusting the sensor and want to know if your target dog is in range.

Bark Stop ProUsing the Bark stop as a pest repellent

If you want to scare pests away from your yard or garden then this unit is great. With a larger and therefore louder speaker than the majority of ultrasonic repellers you can keep an area of up to 5000 square ft. pest free.

The unit has an infra-red heat detector built-in which detects moving pests then blasts them with an ultrasonic sound wave which either scares the pest away or irritates it making it move on to quieter areas.

If you know which pest you are wanting to repel the unit has adjustable frequency settings that are known to upset that animal. However there is another setting which will continuously sweep the full range of settings so at some point your pest will be affected. Some reviews I have found suggest this is more effective than a targeted frequency.

It can also be a burglar alarm

When set to alarm, the Bark Stop will use its infra-red heat motion sensor to detect movement and when triggered it will give off a laud audible sound (the volume can be adjusted)

Bark Stop ProCustomer opinion

There are mixed reviews on the effectiveness of the Bark Stop Pro to stop dogs barking. Most people are amazed and very pleased with the results however some people say the unit is useless. I know and believe all dogs are different, some respond very well to the training but others are belligerent or just plain mental and ignore the ultrasonic sound altogether.

Another point that was noted was the back cover was very fiddly to fit and this may have led to the unit not being weather proof… Be careful on replacement of this cover.

Yard Sentinel | Review

Yard SentinelYard Sentinel

Hi and welcome to my site. Today I’m going to review the 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 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.

Yard SentinelThe 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.

Mega-Sonic Cat Repellet Review

The Mega-Sonic repeller is the big boy of ultrasonic cat repellers, with a larger than average speaker giving it the loudest output and the most garden covered compered to other leading brands, making the cats even more uncomfortable than the rest.

The device detects cats when they come in range by the use of its internal infra-red detection system which detects the heat given off by cats and other large animals. Being infra-red apparently saves on the battery making it last longer but also means it will work at night and in the dark. Keeping your garden cat free for twenty four hours a day.

The mega sonic is very easy to set up, just add the batteries turn it on and fix it in the ground with its retaining spike or fix it to a wall. Just make sure it is facing the area you want to keep cat free.

Being battery operated you have the luxury of being able to position the detector where ever you want. But if you are concerned about the battery running out you can get one with a mains adapter.

When the Sonic Cat Repeller detects animals moving into range it triggers a burst of continuously variable ultrasound, which sweeps a frequency range of 18,000Hz, 24,000 Hz to repel cats. This sound is so high pitch that humans cannot hear it, but makes cats very uncomfortable to be near. If you want to test it is still working there is a test button that lowers the pitch and makes it audible to you.

The Mega-Sonic cat repeller has only a few features, but they are good ones.

Mega-Sonic Cat Repeller How your ultrasonic repeller stops cats from using your garden.

Cats like to be comfortable and stress free while they do their business, the job of an ultrasonic cat repeller is to make your garden a stressful place to be in. Forcing those cats to find a less stressful and quieter place to do their poop. Unfortunately cats are creatures of habit and to break their habit of using your garden can take up to 3 months… Do persevere with all cat repellents.

Customer reviews

Reading customers reviews I have discovered that most are extremely happy with their Sonic Cat Repeller with results of cat free gardens almost immediately to only a few days.

One reviewer was extremely impressed with the reaction of the firs cat to wonder in front of the cat scarer that he bemoaned the fact that he didn’t video it.

Another bemoaned that his neighbour was so impressed with his cat free garden that they kept borrowing it!

There are of course some buyers who say they don’t work and are a waste of money. Unfortunately not all cats are the same and no cat repellent is guaranteed to work on all cats. If this happens to you other owners use the ultrasonic scarer along with sprays or gels and the combination of the two does work… remember you only have to break the cat of its habit.

PestBye Battery Operated Cat Repeller | Review |Ultrasonic Cat Repellent

Ultrasonic cat deterrentPestBye Battery Operated Cat Repeller

Lest get your garden free from cats!

Today I am researching the PestBye battery operated cat repeller and I’m going to run through the features, the good points, and the bad, I’ll also include customer’s opinions and point you to the best direction to get the best price.

If you’ve just landed on this website looking to buy  PestBye cat repeller Then click here to go straight to Amazon USA or Amazon UK where you can view the product and best prices.

What is a sonic cat scarer?

PestBye cat repeller is basically a loud-speaker which gives off a very loud ultrasonic noise (which most humans cannot hear) but cats can, they are either scared of the noise or find it uncomfortable to be around.

This PestBye sonic cat repellent is controlled by an infra-red heat detector which turns the speaker on when the heat from the cat comes into range this is around 7 metres from the detector.

How does it scare cats?

The noise emitted from the sonic cat scarer is a very sudden, loud, high pitch noise which is usually enough to scare most cats away. If that doesn’t work then the incessant noise will make the cats uncomfortable, and cats like to be relaxed when they do their business. So they go elsewhere where they can relax while having a poop.

Features

  • Waterproof
  • Works day and night – Keeping your garden cat free 24hrs
  • Battery operated –Owners say batteries last for around 9 months
  • Infra-red (PIR) motion sensor which turns the device on when a warm body enters your garden
  • Different output frequency setting to target specific animals
  • Adjustable Sensitivity settings – Can be targeted

Who is it suitable for?

Just one ultrasonic scarer will cover an 80 degree arc, to a distance of up to 23ft (7m) so if the area you want to keep totally clear of cats is larger than 7 metres, you will need more than one.

Not suitable for pet owners. If you have pets of your own, either cats or dogs, they will be affected also.

Unfortunately it can’t tell pest from pet.

Ultrasonic cat deterrentIs it any good?

The PestBye cat repeller is one of the best on the market with a very high success rate.

No cat repellent is 100% guaranteed but this is far better than using scented sprays and pellets. However used in conjunction with them, buyers who used both sprays and ultrasonic comment that their gardens are now cat free!

Are there better Ultra sonic scarers ?

PestBye is the market leader in ultrasonic cat scarers, but they do come in different formats to suit all.

  • Battery operated – Free from wires but the battery will run out (about 6-9 months)
  • Mains operated – Needs to be permanently plugged into the mains, but it is a set and forget device (this is the one I used).
  • Solar operated – No wires set it working and forget about it. This does not appear to be as good as the battery operated one, as it has no adjustable settings and can’t be targeted at just cats.

Value for money Would I recommend it?

This sonic cat scarer has far better results than scent related products, and is only slightly more expensive. I myself have bought one in the past and it did keep my yard free from cats, so I definitely recommend this for keeping your garden and yard cat free.

sonic cat repellerUltrasonic cat deterrents are safe cheap solution to stopping cats pooping in your garden and come in various guises:

  • Main power
  • Battery powered
  • Solar/ battery-powered

However they all work in the same way. They have a motion or infra-red heat detector that when triggered emits a high pitch noise inaudible to the human ear (if you can hear it the settings can be changed) that either scares the cat or just makes it uncomfortable to be around. If they don’t detect any motion they turn off after about 20 seconds saving battery life.

Reviews of Ultrasonic repellers

Yard SentinelPestBye Ultrasonic cat deterrentMega-Sonic Cat Repeller
Yard Sentinel ReviewPestBye reviewMega Sonic review
Yard Sentinel Dual
Yard Sentinel Dual
Plus it stops dogs barking

How good are they?

Cats are creatures of habit and if there habit is to use your garden as a toilet then it needs to be broken and this takes time. Unfortunately not all cats are the same! Some are old, deaf, belligerent or just well hard and not scared of anything… so this can take anything from 3 days to 3 months to stop their vandalism of your garden.

A sad fact of ultrasonic repellent is that they are not discriminatory… They will also scare / upset your own pets so unless you want a total cat free area they are not suitable for pet owners.

Is there a better way to keep cats out of your garden?

A Sonic cat repeller is a cheap affordable cat deterrent better than gels and sprays but not as good as more expensive water sprayers. If you have tried the gels and sprays and not found them successful an ultrasonic cat repellent is a great addition to your arsenal. Many successful garden owners use both sonic devises and sprays to get a cat free garden or yard.

Extra bonus of sonic cat scarers.

Not only do they keep cats away but they are also supposed to stop:

  • Dogs
  • Foxes
  • Squirrels
  • Rodents
  • Insects (damn big swarms to trigger the device!)
  • Roaches (again how do they set it off?)

Conclusion

I myself owned one of these some years ago to keep cats out of my back yard, which was pebbled and nearly impossible to sort cat poo from pebbles. I positioned it to cover the whole yard and never had any trouble from cats since. Even though I was 35ish I could not hear or tell if the ultrasonic cat scarer was on or not now at 50 there is no way my hearing would pick up the sound of one of these even if it was set wrong. I do recommend a sonic cat repeller.
