Stands Guard 24/7 to Defend Your Property from All Nuisance Critters

Spray Away Elite II uses infrared technology to detect an animal's heat (day and night) and movement up to 35 feet away. When a critter is detected, the unit releases a sudden burst of water, along with startling noise and motion. This reaction frightens away virtually any animal and conditions them to stay out of your yard. 

Self-Contained Water Basin Gives You the Freedom to Place Elite Anywhere

The Elite II features a 3.5-gallon refillable water basin, which eliminates the need to hook up a hose. This exclusive feature liberates you from fumbling with leaky connections or dragging unsightly hoses across your lawn. Elite's durable basin can even be buried underground; sink the water basin into soil and allow Elite II to seamlessly blend into your beautiful landscape.

High-Powered Solar Panel is
Eco-Friendly and Convenient

The Elite II Motion Activated Sprinkler utilizes a commercial grade solar panel that saves electricity and provides a continuous energy source for the high-powered unit. And because you don't need to worry about batteries, it requires less maintenance than other electronic repellent sprinklers.

Elite Communicates with You Through its Smart Warning System

LED indicator lights alert you when the water basin needs to be refilled or if the battery is running low. They also illuminate when Spray Away senses movement, helping you test your coverage area and sensitivity before ever filling the water basin, so setup's a breeze.

Fully Customizable Coverage Area

Adjust your detection distance and the reach of your sprinkler with nine sensitivity settings and an adjustable sprinkler head. These customizations give you the ability to target smaller or larger animals and cover only the areas you want to protect. Each Spray Away Elite II can cover up to 1,900 square feet, detecting and spraying at a distance of up to 35 feet and an arc of 180 degrees.

Eco-Friendly Alternative to Traditional Chemical Repellents

This motion-detector sprinkler repels using only water and noise, making it environmentally friendly and great for your lawn. Not only is a water sprinkler repellent safer than applying chemical repellents, but it's also more efficient and economical, as there is no need for continuous re-application. Moreover, Elite II is eco-friendly, using only two cups of water per spray.

Spray Away Elite II - Motion Activated Sprinkler is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks Ugly, Works Beautifully I have just had it for a week and find it very functional and easy to use. It saves me the bother and expense of fencing my vegetable garden. The only problem I encountered was getting sprayed when I walked into the garden while forgetting to turn it off first.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They've worked for my pond. I have a smallish backyard done. A couple of years ago I got a single one of these motion activated sprinklers. It performed very well and I didn't lose any fish. Through my own fault, I knocked that one off the base I had it on while it was full and it cracked the base. That's completely understandable because it holds a good amount of water when full (that's good cause you don't have to refill it as often). Since I broke that one, I wanted to get a replacement and took advantage of their 2-pack deal. With two of these and the shape of my pond, I can aim the two of them such that the provide full coverage for the pond but don't "cover" the area where my patio is closest to the pond. The only reason I've given them 4 stars is that one of the two units was DOA. I spoke to customer support and have already sent it back via their return shipping. I expect that soon I'll receive a working replacement. Things like that happen, and as long as the replacement process is quick, I'd go back to 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Working well, but one drawback We ordered one Elite II Spray away, and liked it so much that we ordered a second unit. It has been working well to repel the herds of deer that frequent our backyard, and there has been no damage to the plants that are sprouting up this Spring. The only drawback to the unit is that it does not detect as far away as advertised. After many times attempting to reset the detection field, the units only detect as far away as 5 feet or less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deer Sprayer This product works very well. It is solar so no need for batteries. You just have to fill up the water container every so often. It detects deer from a good distance away and they leave my roses alone and I have had it turned off for a while now and they still don't come back. The ones hooked to the hose don't work. You just have to remember to turn them off if you have guests coming or UPS man etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cool, Effective and Well Built What it does:
The Havahart Spray Away Elite II is designed to scare off critters that come to eat your garden vegetables. It does this by spraying a jet of water to startle the creature. When a creature ventures into the field of view of Spray Aways sensor, it activates and fires a jet of water. The intensity is similar to a garden hose with a nozzle being turned on at about 75% of full blast for about 5 seconds. The water jet sweeps a few degrees and makes a startling noise. Spray Away does not directly target and shoot water at animals (unless it gets lucky). It detects heat and motion at a distance of 30 feet from the front of the unit. It covers a 180 degree angle. It can't detect animals coming from directly behind it. The solar powered battery can fire about 5 times a day. There's no need to hook up a hose like some other similar models. It has 2 led lights which flash when water is low or the charge is low. The LED lights are not bright, but are visible even in bright daylight. Maintenance is rather minimal, only requiring twice a week water fill up (but this depends on how many animals cross its path) and wiping the solar panel and detector surfaces clean. Fit and finish quality are high.

I found the set up very easy. You fill the tank with 3.5 gallons of water. Choose the sensitivity from a dial and turn the unit on. The sensitivity setting is not well defined in the instructions, but I assume it's based on the size of the animal you are attempting to deter. Strangely, instructions do not tell you exactly what a 'large' or 'small' animal is in terms of measurements. The higher the sensitivity setting the smaller the animal the unit will detect. A very high sensitivity may produce false activations. For example, a tree limb moving in the field of view or a butterfly might cause the unit to spray. Therefore, you may need to lower the sensitivity a bit or move the unit to a different location. I have mine set on 8 out of 9 to deter pesky rabbits. I have not experienced any false alarms. You can adjust the spray jet to travel about a maximum of 25 feet. The spray head also rotates during squirting so that the jet of water is always firing somewhere different. This keeps the unit from becoming predictable to animals and losing its effectiveness.

My only major complaints are the instructions and the indicator lights. The manual says to set the sensitivity values based on "small", "medium" and "large". Large what? I assume animals? How big? Not sure. The indicator lights are positioned on the front of the unit. If you forget to turn off the unit and try to read the LED lights, you will get hit with a jet of cold water. Also, the top of the sprayer is a place where birds like to roost and, of course, poop. The poop lands on the solar panels. Hopefully, on the next re-design of this product, the Havahart engineers will make that roosting spot a little pointy so that birds will avoid sitting there.

So far Spray-Away has been very effective. Rabbits devouring spinach and lettuce were our problem last season. I have not seen one rabbit (or any other varmint) in our 25' x 30' garden area since placing the unit on the perimeter. They actually seem to be avoiding the garden. We left some "bait lettuce" in the garden for a few days as a test and so far it is completely uneaten. I have had no problems with inadequate charging of the battery. It always seems ready to work.

I think the Spray-Away is worth the extra expense. It's actually fun to use and is a much better alternative to applying chemical deterrents (especially in an edible garden). If you have a huge garden, you will probably need additional Spray Aways and of course, this could be costly. Also, if you expect many animals to be crossing through your garden, you may want to get the version with attached hose, as you don't want to have to fill up the unit with water constantly, but remember that animals will eventually learn to avoid the Spray Away's path and therefore, it should spray less and less.

I highly recommend this product if you have a garden munching animal problem and a little extra money to spend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very efficient! So easy to use This is my third product from Havahart and I'm very happy with all of them. I have problems with stray cats, dogs, racoons, and possums. Havahart animal repellants take care of all of them, and without chemicals or anything dangerous.

The Havahart Spray Away Elite II is very easy to use and really does the trick! The unit weighs 11 pounds empty, so it's easy to carry. I fill it with a bucket, since it's easier to carry a bucket of water than a full Spray Away unit. Once it's in place, it works very efficiently.

The unit is solar powered, so I never have to worry about dead batteries. I love the eco-friendly aspect of it.

We had a lot of fun testing it out! It detected our movement every time and gave us a quick blast of water. This will be perfect to put in the far corner of our vegetable garden this summer, where a water hose won't reach. We won't have to worry about stray animals messing up the garden.

If you have a lot of animals to deter, you'll probably want to use the model that attaches to a water hose so you'll have continuous action. The Spray Away Elite works well with occasional problems, unless you want to fill it up every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No cords, no hoses and more affordable than built in systems Where I live, it seems there are more deer around than birds in the sky. We live in very northern Minnesota and are about an hour outside of the areas largest city. In a tiny tourist town that's surrounded by national forests, we live where people come to camp on the weekends. So to say we have a lot of deer and other wildlife locally would be an understatement. The deer walk in herds comfortably through town all day every day. While most people driving through a neighborhood might have to worry about someones pet dog running out into the street, here you can hardly drive to the local post-office without having to dodge groups of white tails.

One of the reasons the deer come into town is because of the easy access to food. Everyone has bird feeders, gardens, and some even buy cracked corn and place it outside in the evenings just for feeding the deer specifically. So at any time of day, locals can look outside and usually see the large pests chowing down on just about anything found in their front yard. The deer here are not easily scared. Barking dogs, cars going by and people walking aren't a bother to them at all. A few years back, I opened my front door to let my 3 dogs outside to go to the bathroom, and found a huge deer had walked up onto my porch and was eating the flowers out of my potted plants. In the process of opening the storm door, I bumped it right in the rear, not knowing it was there. It just turned and looked at me, annoyed that I had interpreted it's meal.

However one thing the deer definitely don't like is being squirted by water. They walk past the yards that have running sprinklers, and of my neighbors have motion detecting systems installed, so that when a large animal comes into their yard, a sprinkler system goes off. However Im not looking to spend that kind of money to install such a large setup, just to keep the deer from eating my potted plants. Also I have 3 large dogs, and I don't need something going off every time I need to let them outside. I need something extremely simple. Something that doesn't require being hooked up to my hose all the time. And I wanted something that didn't need power cables run to it. This Havahart Spray Away is just that.

This system is exactly what I needed. I am able to put the Spray Away unit right in front of my porch, where my potted plants sit. I love that it's mobile, not affixed to the ground and no need to have any power cables or hoses hooked up to it. If I decide to move my plants to get better sunlight, I can move this unit right with them. The solar panel provides all the power it needs, and inside of it there is a water reservoir for filling so there's no need to keep the hose hooked up to it. You don't even need to hook up the hose to it to fill it. This is a big plus, since I need my hose for so many other things in the summertime.

You can change the sensitivity levels, so that it's not going off every time a bird goes by. Or if you're trying to keep birds like crows or seagulls away, you can set it super sensitive so that it goes off when they get within a certain range. There are two light indicators on the side that will flash to let you know if your water in the reservoir is getting low, or if the solar battery is running low. It does need a few days of sitting in the sunshine before the first use so it can get a full charge. Also if the battery completely runs out (days of raining/cloudy weather) it will need some time to charge up again. This does run on sunlight, so it if sits all day in the shade, it will run on the stored solar energy and then need recharged before using it again. If you use this in direct sunlight, recharging time won't be a problem, because it will be able to keep drawing on the solar energy each day.

This is the perfect solution for keeping deer away from plants, stray dogs out of your lawn or just about anything else you want to keep away from something. With the adjustable sensor, you can set it to the size of animal you want, and the distance away that it is before the unit spays them. It can be set to keep something out of your yard, but not squirt people as they are waling by on the sidewalk. With the great portability it has (no power cords or hoses), the low-cost when compared to built in deterrent system, and the range of settings it offers, this Havahart Spray Away is just what I was looking for. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps Bambi Away! The one thing that has kept us from having a garden at our house is that the wildlife of all sizes would eat it right up, so we would be paying out time and money to feed the critters!

This device lets you set up a zone of coverage around your garden so that when it senses the presence of something warm enough to trigger it, it will spray for short period of time and hopefully scare the animal away.

This does not require a hose or an electrical line, so you can set it anywhere there is sunlight to charge the battery. You can fill the reservoir with a hose or with a watering can.

You can set the sensitivity with a knob - you can also turn it off so you can work in your own garden!

you can adjust the spray width - the smaller the better so you don't waste water.
