Try Melnor customer service. I'm sure you can find a phone number for them on their website. I looked for a number for you on the literature but none is provided.

Is this made in China ?

Yes, it is made in China, unfortunately. Try to find something that isn't these days!

Can I limit the area it senses? ie 180 degrees and not 360?

Asked by Mike October 16, 2019

Answers

The angle of detection is about 110 degrees. The box shows an icon with the title 360 degrees. That's not the area of detection but the ability to spin it in a full circle, if needed.

Can this be programmed to only operate during the night?

Asked by Mike October 16, 2019

Yes. I just did it with the following modifications. First I removed the solar panel and then replaced the batteries with a 3V power adapter and an AC power timer. I cut two red wires inside the unit and re-connected the wire from solar panel input (at the backwall of the unit) to the one for battery power input (on the circuit board). The 3V power thus goes directly to the circuit board through the original solar panel connector at the back of the unit.

I chose this model rather than competitive models as you can replace the rechargeable batteries and the adjustable solar panel keeps the batteries charged during the day. It performs almost perfectly. I would ding it a tiny bit only because the response time occasionally takes up to 2 seconds after something crosses into the detection zone. It's a minor flaw because otherwise this performs very well. Most often it responds in under 1 second. I have a camera trained on the area covered by the sprinkler and have confirmed by video recordings that deer will react immediately to the "click" of the unit or the burst of water. I have 2 video recordings where deer were headed for a banquet of my tomato crop and were instantly turned and running at top speed away from the garden. This is exactly why I bought this unit. Humane discouragement of garden-marauding animals! The attached images are a bit blurry shot through a window heavy with dew. The deer has just been sprayed and is turning about at light speed.

Poorly made and I like Melnor over Orbit. First, to connect the hose you have to spin the sprinkler because the female receptacle doesn’t have an adaptable connector. Second, every (all 3) of the threaded pieces leaked. Returned it

I use this to spray my goats and it works! You will need to adjust the sensitivity range for your needs, but it has a wide viewing sensor and deters the animals from eating my plants and trees! I would buy another one.

I need a motion sensitive sprinkler that can chase away raccoons only at night time. After consulting with the Melnor tech support team, I decided to buy this product and make modifications afterwards. With a small effort, I was able to disconnect the solar panel and replace the batteries with a 3V power adapter and a timer. It has since worked like a charm. My backyard is no longer messed up by the unwelcome night visitors. The original sprinkle head I received was defective and Melnor immediately replaced it. Excellent service!!
