Seeks out Animal Movement 24/7

Using infrared technology, Spray Away detects an animal’s movement up to 35 feet away. When an animal crosses its path, Spray Away releases a sudden burst of water combined with startling noise and motion that safely and effectively repel critters. This electronic animal detector works day or night, so it’s always on watch protecting your yard.


One-of-a-Kind Adjustable Sensor

The Havahart Spray Away® 2.0 comes equipped with a fully adjustable infrared sensor - a feature exclusive to this electronic repellent. This gives you the ability to choose the angle of the sensor, allowing you to target different sized animals and customize the device to variations in your landscape and terrain.

Point the Adjustable Sensor Eye ‘up’ to detect large animals and birds, or to see uphill. Point it ‘down’ to detect smaller critters, or to see downhill.


Easy Customizations at Your Fingertips

Choose between nine sensitivity settings to fine-tune your desired coverage area and ensure the right detection level for your target animal. For more control over Spray Away’s coverage area, simply adjust the sprinkler head to modify the distance and arc of your water spray.


Super Simple Setup

Havahart® has made this motion detector sprinkler easy to place in your yard with its Step-In Stake design. Gently step down into the foot stirrup to easily insert the stake in your desired area.

Additionally to aid in setup, a red LED light above the sensor eye blinks when it senses movement. This means you can walk in front of the unit to test your sensitivity before you hook up the hose (so that you don't get wet). The light also blinks when the unit is low on battery, so you have time to replace them before your unit is fully drained.


A Low-Maintenance, Eco-Friendly Alternative

This motion-detector sprinkler repels using only water and noise, making it environmentally friendly and great for your lawn. Not only is it safer than applying chemicals, but it’s also more efficient and economical since there is no need to re-apply. What’s more, it only uses two cups of water per spray to cover up to 1,900 square feet.

Havahart Spray Away® 2.0 - Motion Activated Sprinkler is rated 4.9118 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ingenous The spray away is very effective and safe. Been having deer eating my trees, hostas, day lillies, sunflowers. Using the spray away has remedied the problem. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve got tomatoes!!! Finally, for the first time in years, I’m pretty darn sure our tomatoes are going to reach adulthood and make it to the dinner plate. For years we’ve been pestered by deer eating everything we’ve introduced into our small garden. Every spring we forget how brazen they were last year and we plant again, thinking that this year will be different. Hope springs eternal. We’ll be more vigilant and scare them away before they can decimate everything. Sure. But every year, starting in June, they very discretely sneak in and chew off everything that was to become something to eat or something pretty to look at. This year, after their first mow job, and at the casual suggestion of an air conditioning service man we had out, we bought the Havahart Spray Away Motion Activated Sprinkler and everything has changed. I couldn’t be happier. My Stella D’oro lilies have flowers that I haven’t seen open fully ever. And the tomatoes are going crazy; some are actually turning color. We got to see a deer the other day hightail it when he got surprised by the unit going off. He didn’t know where it was coming from or who was behind it. We’ve never seen a deer run off that fast into the woods. I just wish we’d caught on to this product years sooner. For the first time ever, we are master of our domain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well We are glad to have some way of defending our rural garden from deer without using chemicals! This one is effective, as advertised, but the biggest drawback is that there is no way to disengage the 4 batteries during the day when we are working in the yard. We turn off the water supply but the batteries continue to operate and the sprayer wants to work. An "on/off" switch on the sprayer itself would be an improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly sensitive The item was recommended by a friend to protect his pond fish from herons, so I bought one for my son who has the same issue with marauding birds. Hope it works well for him.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great device I bought this for my wife to protect her plants. She put it together and adjusted the sprayer, she loved it. Deer has not mess with her in plants. Great product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tilt sensor is great I have used Scarecrows for years. Found the Havahart and immediately ordered one. The tilt-head sensor means I can aim the spray different than the detector. The teen raccoons are at ground level, but we set the spray so any 'coon parents get a direct hit. Only issue is finding a way to clock it on and off. We only get night critters, and would like to save water and batteries during the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I I use the Scarecrow to keep my pond heron free and have it connected to 1/2 funny pipe underground . I added Spray Away to the other side of my pond to double protect the pond. Though I love the Spray Away features, I prefer the hose connection location of the Scarecrow since the Scarecrow connection is parallel to the ground and connected to a pipe riser rather than the Spray Away which is connected directly on the unit perpendicular to the ground. Being perpendicular means that anyone using a hose will experience the hose pushing the entire Spray Away unit up into the air since a quality hose may not have enough bend to create a good 90 degree angle in the hose. I ended up using the Scarecrow base and throwing away the Spray Away base. Everything now works like a charm.

I just set up my unit, and have not been able to set the sensitivity.  It seems to go on every 9-11 seconds regardless of the setting.

Asked by: sammy
When installing the unit it is important that it is placed where flags, tall grasses or even cars could activate it. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for additional assistance.

If I put this unit by my gate to keep dogs away from incoming cars, will it spray passing cars too ? Cars produce a lot of heat. 

Asked by: Scott57
This unit is activated by both heat and motion. Depending on the direction the sensor eye is pointed as well as the sensitivity, it is possible that the motion of the cars would activate the water.

how do i set the spray for 180 deg and return back on the next spray like my old havahart sprayer...mike

Asked by: memememe
The plastic tabs can be moved to adjust the width of the covered area. For a wider coverage, the plastic tabs should be set further apart.
