Product Overview

The Havahart Spray Away Elite II - Animal Repellent Motion Detector Sprinkler provides an innovative, humane way to keep unwanted animals out of any part of your yard and garden. With its new and improved design, the Elite II is stronger than ever and even more capable of withstanding the elements. Spray Away Elite II provides a safe and easy to use alternative to chemical repellents and electric fences. Spray Away uses an infrared sensor to detect animals that cross its path and upon detection releases a burst of water combined with unexpected noise and motion to humanely deter them. The Havahart Spray Away Elite II will actually condition your unwanted animals to find lunch elsewhere. Best of all, Spray Away Elite II is hose-free and wireless making it portable and discrete. In this way, Spray Away Elite II gives you the flexibility to protect any area from nuisance animals regardless of proximity to a water or power source. And Spray Away Elite II charges through solar panels located on the top of the unit - so you never have to worry about replacing batteries. Spray Away Elite II is powerful enough to protect up to 1,900 sq. ft. while detecting motion 35 ft. in front of the unit. The versatile unit detects animals of all sizes, and the sprinkler can be set to cover shorter or longer distances.

Customer Questions & Answers

can it be turned off during the day and turned on at dark?

Asked by: Deerfull
This unit can be turned off when not being used, however please keep in mind that the battery only charges while in the on position. If the unit is used exclusively at night, the battery will not be able to charge in the dark.

Customer Reviews

Spray Away Elite II Motion Detector Sprinkler is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea, but not sensitive enough The idea is good, but the execution not so much. The unit is entirely self contained meaning it has a water tank and solar panels to charge the batteries. Fill the water tank, let it sit outside for a few days to get a good charge on minimum sensitivity then adjust to your personal preference. The water stream is good, even at minimum distance settings will shoot 10+ feet. The included sprinkler can shoot water in one direction or rotate back and forth like a typical sprinkler. The sensitivity of the unit though is lacking. Even at maximum (9) sensitivity, it will not trigger the system until you are probably 2-3 feet away from the unit. The instructions say it detects heat rather than motion which could mean that it is simply too hot here for it to work effectively. When triggered at 2-3 feet, the unit sprays instantly for a few seconds before returning to its sleeping state.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the gardeners pulling their hair out over nuisance animals! We love spending time in our garden and enjoy the vegetables we are able to pull from it. However the new area we live in is known for a large amount of deer, and we have had trouble with a majority of our plants. We have tried a lot of the deer repellants, but admit we are not big fans of using chemicals in our garden. When we found this product, we were quite excited to give it a shot. The first thing that hit us was the price point, it does seem a bit expensive, but it is difficult to benchmark this, because there are not many similar products in the market that have all the functionality of this product. The solar power panels, water tank, infrared sensor, and sprinkler top make for an awesome product that you can properly set up and forget about for extended periods of time! Also it has a range of settings for almost any situation. Though the price point is a bit off-setting I will admit that ever since we started using the product, we have seen an exponential increase in the number and quality of vegetables we can pull from our garden! There was an issue with the product when we first received it that prevented the sprinkler head from resetting its angular position, however Havahart's customer service was very helpful and worked with us to get it to work properly. Just make sure to remember to warn anyone who may wonder in the path of the sensor about the product....or they will get soaked!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pest control without the hoses We have a small vegetable garden and a small 15 tree orchard on our Texas ranch. We got this to keep our dogs from digging around the tree roots, and running through the raised vegetable beds. We had a similar product that required a garden hose be attached, and the periodic replacement of batteries. It was inconvenient to have to remove it and coil up the hose every time we cut the grass in the Orchard or between the raised beds. The tank holds a lot of water (3.5 gallons), and the solar panel means no batteries to remember to change. A light flashes on the unit when the water needs topping up. At first we had to fill the water every couple of days, that was until the dogs learned to stay away from it. Now we go a week or more before the light flashes to remind us to fill it up. As the dogs no longer go near it, its obviously keeping pests at bay too (we have raccoons in the area). It sprays just a couple of cups of water a time, so it is very thrifty. When activated by the built-in motion sensor, a jet of water emits from the sprinkler head (which also makes a noise as it pulses the water). The area the sprinkler sprays can be set from 0 to 360 degrees, and extends up to 35 feet. You can adjust the sensitivity of the sensor to suit your environment. When situated near a fruit tree with leaves that blew in the wind we turned it down to prevent false activations. I love the fact we can place this where water hoses do not reach or having to move them is time consuming. Our dogs completely stopped digging the fruit tree roots, and no longer go near the vegetable beds. A great invention, and one that does exactly what we needed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from GREAT IDEA, BUT PERFORMANCE WAS DISAPPOINTING... I love the idea of this Havahart sprinkler, but have not found it to be a truly reliable repellent. We do enjoy watching it when it occasionally scares off a rabbit or when we get sprayed by mistake, but the cost is a bit high for that entertainment. I had high hopes that this would keep the rabbits from nesting in our lawn, but even when I set the sensitivity all the way up, it does miss them running right in front of it sometimes. I have spent weeks adjusting all the settings, moving the sprayer to different angles and areas, but it seems to 'miss' more than it 'hits'. The spray is so quick, it does not travel very far in the selected arc. There is no 'startling noise' as described. Perhaps this unit has a defect, since others have no problem? I have owned another of this type repellent in the past, but had no problems getting that one to perform. It is a nicely designed, sturdy item and I do like that it has an on/off switch and adjustments and does not need a hose or electricity. It would have been a better idea to place the status lights on the backside where the switch and knob are located, though. It is difficult to see the status where it is placed (luckily I have eyeglasses, so that when I mistakenly bent over from the back to see the lights, the stream of water hit my glasses instead of my eyeballs!) Another down side is that sometimes if the sun shines towards it, the spray will constantly trigger. Then, it takes 3 days to fully charge again. I did notice that it works much better right after it is fully charged, but the battery runs down quickly and the performance deteriorates. It is a shame that there is no option to use electricity, I think I would have preferred the reliability of steady, full power. As I've mentioned, it is more of a fun item than something I trust to repel critters. The rabbits still hang around the front lawn, and now the neighbors dog has discovered the fun of playing in the bursts of water - he loves it. Based on the unit I received, not sure if I would recommend it - but there seems to be some units out there that work better than mine, so it might be worth a try.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very startling, especially at night! Good detection distance I got this for one thing only: deer While I love to watch deer and respect them, I don't appreciate their lack of respect when it comes to eating our plants. Especially when the woods if full of plants. What the heck? Installation couldn't be easier and I really like the design. The sprinkler head on top is adjustable, including the range, much like a traditional sprinkler with the tabs to change direction. Simply fill it with water and mount the top. Less than 5 minutes. I set this up out back for a week and got a feel for how it works on several occasions. Unlike another reviewer who didn't get good sensitivity, mine works very well! I should have measured it for this review, but it's easily 20+ feet. I've tested this in the daytime and in the dead of night (3:30 am - I just couldn't sleep). The night test was the funniest. I was creeping up on it in my pajamas and slippers, knowing full well it would trip any second and it still scared the daylights out of me! At night (when you really want it) it's VERY startling! The red lights come suddenly and the sound of the motor and sprinklers splits the peaceful darkness. Then there's the water stream! I jumped and ran, my heart racing! Trust me, if installed in an appropriate place, this WILL scare the deer away! I got nailed a couple of times on the riding mower, too. Again, caught off guard each time! As for an appropriate place, I think that's the tricky part of this product. Because the sensors are on one side this is really meant to be a directional deterrent. In other words, you can't simply place it in the middle of a garden, for instance. You want to find a good spot in a "corner" that covers the area to protect. We have several areas to protect, to this could add up quickly, cost-wise, but I will say that we've wasted a lot of time of the years with physical and spray deterrents. If you have one or a few well defined areas to protect this might be just what you need! The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because it only get 3-4 cycles on a charge, according to the instructions. My immediate reaction to that capacity is that it's not enough. Now, it may be just fine for normal use, but if they could double that it wouldn't have been an issue for me. Possibly a larger battery would help.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Effective We got this device to keep the squirrels away from the bird feeder. After much experimentation, we found that we had to get the sensor very close, and even then, the triggering of the sensor was hit-or-miss (mostly miss). When it did trigger, the stream or water went over the intended target, and no amount of adjustment seemed to solve the problem. Also, the burst of water is very brief, and covers only a small portion of the arc that the device is set for. Its effectiveness is primarily that it makes a noise that scares off the critters (if it turns on at all).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well The HavaHart Spray Away works really well. Just attach the sprinkler head with the supplied wrench, fill with water, set the sensitivity and turn it on. SWhen it's triggered it shoots water out for about 3 seconds. It seems to me that it is detecting motion, not heat as advertised, because the least little breeze rustling leaves in front of it sets it off; even at low sensitivity settings. Because of that I had to raise it off the ground by setting it in a large ceramic pot. Then it worked great. It's so nice not needing a hose always attached and on to make it work. You do have to remember to turn it off if people will be walking around it; my wife got sprayed a few times; I thought it was funny, her not so much... At $180, I think it's a little expensive, but pretty cool, all in all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not work, had to return I purchased this to scare cats away from my flower bed because they use it as a litter box and to protect the robin nest and babies in the tree nearby. It arrived quickly but did not work so I set it in the sun for 5 days (per instructions) to charge but still it did not work. It would make a noise (after a 5-20 second delay) when it saw motion but the sprinkler would not move or spray. I called Havaheart helpdesk and it is great to have a live person who deducted it was broken (though brand new) but I have to ship it back (after a 30+ minute phone call). Once they get it they will send me a new one. So now I have to deal with that hassle and be without one while the baby robins will be leaving the nest. They will not mail me a new one immediately without the bad one in their possession. I am disappointed this brand new item does not work and I really need it now. I worry the company has poor quality control as I saw other reviews where people complained it did not work out of the box. Because of the price I would not buy it again when defective ones seem to be common and the inconvenience caused by Havaheart. I gave it 2 stars because it still makes a noise which might scare the cats away so I still have it set up under the robin nest until the babies can fly. However I don't know if birds may set it off too since it is defective I can't get a feel for what animal size might set it off, so I have it pointing away from where the robins hang out, but towards where the cats may enter.
