The Only HOSE-FREE Motion-Activated Sprinkler Repellent

The Havahart Spray Away® Elite Motion Activated Sprinkler Repellent provides an innovative way to repel unwanted animals. Spray Away Elite is the only hose-free and solar-powered electronic repellent on the market. Completely portable, Elite is designed to protect any part of your yard - from ponds to gardens to mulch beds. This cutting-edge electronic repellent uses a blast of water to safely and effectively scare away intruders, keeping your yard clear of animal destruction.

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

Spray Away® Elite uses infrared technology to detect an animal's heat (day and night) and movement up to 25 feet away. Sensing up to 1900 sq ft, it builds a barrier the critter will not want to surpass, spraying up to 650 sq ft When a critter is detected, the unit releases a sudden burst of water. 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 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 to seamlessly blend into your beautiful landscape.

High-Powered Solar Panel is Eco-Friendly and Convenient

The Elite 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. The Spray Away Elite has a spraying distance of up to 25 feet and an arc of 180 degrees.

A Safer Alternative to Traditional Chemical Repellents

This motion-detector sprinkler repels using only water, 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 is eco-friendly, using only two cups of water per spray.

2-Year Manufacturer's Warranty

As the recognized brand leader in nuisance animal control, Havahart® is committed to making customer satisfaction our number one priority. Your Spray Away motion detector sprinkler unit is covered under a 2-year warranty. If for any reason you have any issues with your Spray Away during that time, please call us at (855) 542-8242 so we can assist you.

Havahart® Spray Away® - Motion Activated Sprinkler Repellent is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Redesign! We have used the previous version of this "Deer Sprinkler" for several years - it has proved to be the only way for me to have a nice garden with all the deer that trek through eating everything in sight! We did have recurring "issues" with the previous version though - had them replaced under warrantee a few times and learned to fix other issues ourselves (like when the plastic sprinkler head would break - we just replaced it with another) This new design of the sprayer itself , sensor settings and hose attachment placement especially so far seem to be so much better and hopefully therefore less opportunity for malfunction. Time will tell but so far I am thrilled!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great idea Bought this last week and still getting things adjusted. It is a great idea -- and I may be pushing the design for shorter distances, but everything works as advertised. Please note, you can modify this with other parts using the original motion detector and hose connections. Very happy so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Havahart Spray Away This is a great idea that works well. Set up was so easy. Just connect to a hose and set in the ground. Flexible options for angle and best hit to problem animals was easy, too. Only using a short time, so hopeful it works. Also great that it works day or night, when you're home or when you're out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Living with deer I live on a ravine with many deer and other types of wildlife frequenting my yard. While I love the wildlife I also love to garden. These motion detector sprinklers have protected my gardens and allowed me to enjoy the wildlife and my flowers!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm! I bought this to keep osprey from building nests on my boat while on the lift. I tried every contraption made to keep them off, but nothing worked. I thought I'd try one of these on a whim and it works like a charm! No more osprey nests, eggs, branches, feathers, dead fish, sand, or slop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more cats and squirrels I bought this motion activated sprinkler to stop the neighborhood cats and squirrels from getting in my front yard. After installing two of them, I have not seen any animals out front. They work great. Thank you Havahart!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great!!! Keeps the deer away from my wife's bushes and flowers at nite. They need add a photocell so it doesn't work in the day time or at least a shutoff switch. Otherwise it works like a charm!

On this motion sprinkler devise, what exactly does it sprinkle and does it harm the grass or flowers. I'm trying to keep raccoons from walking on a brick ledge that leads to my planter box and porch. How long does it last between squirts.

Asked by: Carterfuneral
This motion activated sprinkler uses water to deter animals. When activated, it will spray water for several seconds, pause for a few seconds and spray again if movement or heat are still detected.

Want to use this to keep away raccoons from bird feeders -- but do not want birds to set it off. Can you set the sensitivity for size of animal?

can I run sprinkler to water garden and then set up for night deer

Asked by: t8trz
This product is designed to deter animals such as deer, however it will only activate when it detects movement and is not recommended to water the garden. If you are interested in a dual purpose item that will work for both needs, we recommend our Havahart® Spray Away Hydro-Remote Animal Repellent Sprinkler. http://www.havahart.com/spray-away-hydro-remote-animal-repellent-sprinkler-5267
