Product overview

• Detects and repels cats without harming them• Protects lawns, flower beds, bird feeders and ponds• Monitors a 98° arc up to a distance of 12 metres• Cats trigger a burst of continuously variable ultrasound (unheard by humans)• Motion detector conserves battery life• Weather resistant unit• Easy installation using 2 x 9V PP3 batteries (purchased separately)

The Sonic Cat Repeller incorporates a sophisticated PIR (Passive Infrared) detection system that protects an area over 120 square metres of unobstructed space. It detects animals moving into this area and triggers a burst of continuously variable ultrasound, which sweeps the frequency range of 18,000 Hz to 24,000Hz to repel them. Simultaneously, the LED indicator on the front of the unit signals that it has now been activated. The push on/off Test Button on the front of the will drop the sonic frequency to an audible level so humans can hear it. this enables you to check the unit is functioning properly .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from All the cats in our neighbourhood completely ignored it. However, it had a marked effect on children and quickly cleared them out of the garden. Perhaps all our local cats are deaf and the children gifted with super-sensitive hearing. But I doubt it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from With regard to this sonic cat repeller purchased around 30th January 2013, Over the two weeks this unit has been in use it does not seem to be very effective, however, the current very wintery weather may be part of the problem. I will keep a check on how well it works over the next two weeks or so.

Please advise me if this STV Ultrasonic Cat Repeller product will work inside my garage, hoping to stop my cat from sitting on the roof and bonnet of my new car, or what other device might work ?

Asked by: Wayne
It probably will work if mounted suitably but it might be difficult to fix it far enough away to include the car within the arc of sensitivity. Up in the corner of the roof, probably. At close range, the shock of activating the sonic will effectively deter most cats from using the area. Some cats are deaf, particularly tortoiseshell or white cats I believe......

The unit is giving a high level noise every few minutes.  Have changed the batteries, but still the same.

Regrettably this does sound like a potential fault, and as such I would suggest contacting our Customer Care Team who can advise on the options available to you if the item remains within our standard 12 month warranty period.
