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 4.9333 out of 5 by 30.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from keeps pests and chickens off patio We allow our 7 chickens to free range in our yard. The Havahart keeps them off the patio. This is a huge help! I installed a shut-off valve midline on the hise to allow an esy on/off switch. The device will click on bit the sprinker head will not move if water is off (teo Havahart reps didn't know this). It would a nice improvement if the water cycled on for a longer burst to enable a wide spray. Now, it just shoots for a second in whatever direction it stopped in. Very satisified with it so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from motion sprinkler We have problems with deer eating our flowers before we get to enjoy them...my husband told me about this sprinkler so I got on Amazon and found it. We have set it up after dark to see if it would really help....and it has. The deer have not been back and the flowers are blooming. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can now grow green beans I have tried every imaginable product to keep rabbits and birds from eating my green beans and cucumbers as soon as the seedling emerge. NOTHING worked until I tried Spray Away. I immediately noticed that my plants were now growing to full maturity. Now I need to find a way to keep my grandkids from playing in the spray when they come to visit. GREAT product.

can it be deactivated during day light hours?

Asked by: Anonymous
The only way to turn off the unit is to remove the batteries or disconnect the hose. There is not a way to have it turn off during certain times of the day.

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.
