Protect your yard, garden or pond from animal trespassers with the Havahart Spray Away® 2.0 Motion Activated Sprinkler.
Using only water and noise, this eco-friendly and low-maintenance alternative to pesticides works 24/7 to deter even the most determined critters, keeping your landscape lush and beautiful.
And unlike other electronic repellents, the Spray Away 2.0 has exclusive customizable settings, so you can tailor it to your particular space and target animal.
How It Works
Using infrared technology, Spray Away senses an animal's heat and movement up to 35 feet away. When an animal is detected, Spray Away's sprinkler releases a sudden burst of water combined with startling noise and motion that safely and effectively repels a wide range of animals. And the animal detector works day or night, so it's always on watch. Two motion sensor sprinklers will defend up to 3,800 square feet.
Havahart Spray Away® eliminates the need to apply chemical repellents, keeping your yard easy and inexpensive to maintain, and safe for children and pets. And each spray uses only 2-3 cups of water, so it's efficient
The exclusive Adjustable Sensor Eye, coupled with nine different sensitivity settings, makes Spray Away 2.0 the most cusomizable motion activated sprinkler on the market. Just point the Adjustable Sensor Eye 'up' to sense large animals and birds, or 'down' for small critters. Choose from nine sensitivity settings to target your specific animal and detection distance.
9 different sensing distances
Covers up to 1,900 sq. ft.
Adjustable custom sight settings
Covers any size animal and variations in terrain
Adjust "UP" to target large animals/birds and/or high terrain
Adjust "DOWN" for small animals and/or low terrain
And for even more control over Spray Away's coverage area, you can adjust the spray distance and arc of the sprinkler, targeting shorter or longer distances.
Smart Warning System
With its convenient smart warning system, Spray Away Motion Activated Sprinkler alerts you when your batteries are running low - so you can maintain 24-hour protection. And the LED indicator light will flash when it senses movement, so you can conveniently test the sensitivity before turning on the hose.
Unique Step-In Stake for Simple Setup
Havahart® has also made Spray Away easy to place in your yard with its Step-In Stake design. Gently step down into the foot stirrup and easily insert the stake in your desired area.
Setup is easy - just follow 4 simple steps:
Insert 4 AA batteries (not included)
Use the easy Step-In-Stake to secure the unit in the soil, pointing the eye at your target area.

Recently purchase this double unit in order to preserve my marriage. My wife has her extensive flower garden and I have my chickens. There was a constant battle between the 2 of them, which the chickens were winning. In order to restore peace, I purchased and installed these devices. I am pleased to say that after extensive setup and testing, my wife and I witnessed a minimum of 10 successful defenses of her flowers. Each time a chicken approached, one or the other of the units would detect the intruder and send them scurrying away with a quick blast of water and a noisy greeting. The chickens are starting to get wise to this and actually are staying away from her flowers. Now I will have to purchase more in order to protect the rest of her gardens. Thanks Havahart for restoring tranquility in my household.
Works great for chickens!August 15, 2012
Reviewer: Kristi G., mom of Sage - via Amazon.com
This works great for getting chickens to quit eating the garden! I have small garden patches spread on the side of a hill on a bit over an acre. One section is the best for growing but out of site of the house and EVERYTHING goes over there to nibble - once the neighbors cows got out and knocked down, trampled, and ate just EVERYTHING to get at the canteloupes! This has been great. I had to get a really good hose to use it with - the one I had was leaky around the screw in and it just didn't work well. It kept my garden watered well over there AND allowed me to let the chickens over there some - with the added benefit of helping to deter foxes and other predators from entering my yard from the side. It does use some batteries but it's a lot cheaper than the concoctions that you spray or spread to deter critters that don't work nearly as well.
I will be buying another one next year for another spot I am having trouble with. It works. I love that it keeps me from watering so much by hand too, as that frees me up to do other things.

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.
Keeps out the pestsJuly 19, 2012
I wanted the Havahart Spray Away to help keep out chickens out of my garden, love how it works!
The sprinkler hooks up quite easily to your spray hose and is motion activated, and the sensors can be preset to different sensitivity levels. It is also height adjustable which is a plus if you have many different sorts of pests eating your garden.
I love this item for it's ease of use and the fact that it actually does work to keep the pests away from my garden!
This new Havahart 5266 Spray Away Motion Activated Sprinkler Animal Repellent is amazing. Deer eating your hostas and lilies? This new Spray Away will repel animals with sudden bursts of water. It has an adjustable infrared sensor eye that can detect movement up to 35 feet. The sensor eye also is adjustable to any size animal and any terrain. The sprinkler head covers 1,000 square feet. There is also a sensitivity knob with nine settings for desired coverage. When movement is detected, Spray Away releases sudden bursts of water combined with the unexpected noise and motion to create a safe and effective way to deter and chase away unwanted animals or birds. It requires 4 AA batteries. There is an indicator light that alerts to movement and also lets the home owner know when the batteries are low. The Havahart Company is trusted name in the industry promoting environmentally friendly and safe alternatives to chemcical repellents and electric fences.
Bye Bye Birdie and Other Garden Pests!July 16, 2012
Reviewer: JJ "avid reader"
We live in the country and one of the many rewards of country living is having a garden. My husband is the main gardener in the family and takes great pride in his tomatoes, bell peppers, squash and okra. But living in the country and having a garden is not always that easy because of the animals that also love our garden.....mainly rabbits and birds. The rabbits ate the okra plants down to the ground and the birds must love tomatoes because they are in and out of the tomatoes pecking on them as they flit around. This is very frustrating to my husband. We were so excited to see this Havahart Spray Away Sprinkler Animal Repellent on the Amazon Vine Program. We couldn't wait to try it and see if it actually worked. I can say that it does work and works great. I am so happy because I didn't want to see any animal harmed for doing what comes natural...eating! It keeps the birds away from the tomatoes and the rabbits from all the veggies without harming them in any way. We love it and wish we had had it earlier. This will be a part of our gardening from now on. Highly recommend this product! 5 Stars!
Better than the scarecrowJuly 12, 2012
Reviewer: N. Porter - via Amazon.com
We have issues with our free range chickens walking all over our porch (well, with what they leave behind), eating our veggies out of the garden, and also digging around in our flower beds while "pruning" our irises. So we crimped a little and bought two Scarecrows and put one in the garden and one by the flower bed. So when I was offered this one through Amazon Vine I was thrilled to compare and keep our porch clean, finally!
So how does it compare?
It's better! The big one for me is the sensitivity. It is more sensitive than the scarecrow so it goes off easier; but on the other hand it doesn't go off for nothing here and there like the Scarecrow did (which I didn't mind since it watered our garden!). It really picks up every time something goes by, unless it's RIGHT in the "face" of it.
And then this is simply very well thought out compared to the Scarecrow. One big one is the foot shape near the stake. It makes it really easy to push into the ground since your foot can slip in the loop. Another HUGE plus is that if you need to adjust the head you don't have to unstake the whole thing (like the Scarecrow). You can simply lift the head off and rotate it a little bit and then set it back down, all while leaving the whole shebang staked in. That may not sound like a big deal, but it really is. It saves on time, and quite frankly every time you unstake and stake you are putting wear on the parts you are pushing on, and eventually it will wear out. So less wear on a tool is a good thing and saves you money in the long run.
The third thing I REALLY liked about it is that it takes normal battery sizes, unlike the 9V dinosaurs that the Scarecrow required. So the batteries are cheaper, have more power, and they also last longer.
Overall, it WAY outperforms and I highly recommend it!
I'm so LOVING not having to clean up....July 10, 2012
Reviewer: JoJo "J." - via Amazon.com
dog poo from stray dogs! This unit is simply awesome and was bar none the easiet product I've ever used and put together. The unit has an awesome 'eye' for distance and easily picks up movement from animals (and humans!). I got down on my knees and stayed as low to the ground as I could and crept to the unit. It picked me up from the side right off the bat and it is fast -- it got me before I could even remotely get out of the way! First week ever that I haven't had to pick up at least two doggie poos out of my yard. Priceless!
Great harmless varmit controlJuly 10, 2012
Reviewer: JGS350 - via Amazon.com
I had one of these a few years ago, a different brand, but it worked great. It was to keep blue herons away from my Koi pond. This one works better and has a better rang and works great with smaller animals. I have a problem now with area dogs that roam free now that get into my pond and this deters them as well. I love it! It doesn't harm the animals, which is great. The only problem is I have so may dogs and blue herons to chase off that I go thru the batteries like crazy, but that is the trade off I guess. But it is a great repellant and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to keep away birds of prey from their fish ponds, stray dogs, racoons from their trash or gardens as well as rabbits. Thinking of getting another one to chase off garden pests!!!
Skunks, opossums, raccoons, fox, gigantic Cottontail bunny rabbits, groundhogs etc. -- there seems to be an endless parade of some cute little critter, or another, wandering around my yard (especially at night) looking for something to chow-down on -- vegetable gardens, flower beds, young trees and even my lawn -- especially in Spring and Summer! If it's not a hungry critter, it is a stray Kitty looking for a place to take a dump -- usually in my vegetable gardens. Yuck! :|
Being an avid organic gardener, I am always on the lookout for some, non-chemical, deterrent, or another, that will not harm critters, humans or the environment -- but will keep All, not invited, out of my gardens and flower beds.
Havahart 5266 Spray Away Motion Activated Sprinkler Animal Repellent 2.0 was quick and easy to assemble. Only a few pieces to put together. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it comes with its' own wrench!
The Owner's Manual was easy to follow (especially with the excellent drawings) and the Havahart 5266 Spray Away Motion Activated Sprinkler was ready to take outside, for a test-drive, in only a couple of minutes.
I found it easier to attach the hose and then put the Havahart 5266 Spray Away Motion Activated Sprinkler in the ground. tip: if it leaks, a little, at the hose connection -- as it did with Me -- get someone stronger than you to give it an extra twist at the hose connection area. Problem was instantly solved! *smiles, and thanks Dad*
The motion sensor, which one can adjust the sensitivity on, works beautifully -- and, the water being sprayed (when motion is detected) is a bit noisy and very startling -- even to a human being. :) Sort of like a miniature Gatling gun, imo. But, I like it -- *slightly evil grin*.
One can adjust the motion sensor eye - up or down -, as well.
The water, being sprayed, covers a huge area that one can adjust by turning the water pressure up or down at the outdoor faucet and also by adjusting the plastic stem tabs to narrow or widen the area to be covered.
I didn't have any problems with this product. It was a lot of fun right out of the box, and continues to be so. It is still working properly after a couple of weeks. I really like the fact that it can be moved around the yard, placed in flower pots on the patio and stored for the winter...if one so desires. And, it runs on 4 AA Batteries. It would also make an excellent gift!
Does Havahart 5266 Spray Away Motion Activated Sprinkler Animal Repellent 2.0 sound like what you may be looking for? :) Highly Recommended
great for deerJuly 05, 2012
Reviewer: robert - via Amazon.com
This is a great product for repelling deer. I have however recently put my house up for sell. I have found it's very improtant to turn it off when a realator is showing the house. Haha!
Motion activated sprinklers work great!April 23, 2012
I bought three of the motion activated sprinklers to keep deer away from a rose garden that is unfenced. I have watched deer stray into the sensor area and then immediately dart away when sprinklers are activated. Now the deer literally stay in the perimeter of the area being protected. Very satisfied with this product-- and my roses are too!
Will scare away any animalJanuary 07, 2012
The sensor works well and sprays fast, so it WILL scare away any animal that comes in the front yard. Even the next door neighbor cat who likes to poop in my garden and tease my dogs.
Works for HeronSeptember 27, 2011
I know that it will scare away the heron when he comes without any intervention from me
Works greatJanuary 08, 2014
I have deer problems. These units work great to deter them. However, if you want full 180° range, I would place two units back to back. The sensitivity diminishes as one gets to the 120° range.
Havahart Spray AwayJune 27, 2013
I have 2 of these sprinklers in operation, and so far they have worked well with keeping deer and turkeys away from the prairie garden surrounding our house. It took a few days of tinkering off and on to get them working properly. First, any hose I attached (new or old) to the plastic fitting leaked badly no matter how hard I tightened it against the gasket. The cure was to use plumber's teflon tape over the hose threads. The 2nd problem was only fixed reading reviews of the unit and responses from Havahart support. The units were going off frequently on their own for no apparent reason. Havahart support said to reset them by unplugging the battery module for a short time, and then plugging them back in with the sprinkler already in place staked in the ground, and no motion in front of the unit. This is a recalibration procedure, and is not in the manual. After that, they worked properly, and there have been no further problems. An on/off switch would be handy for this purpose along with a higher-quality hose fitting, maybe made out of brass.
Night GuardSeptember 04, 2011
It guards my plants at night when the deer come around, it doesn't wear off and need re-application like chemicals, it's natural.
firstname.lastname@example.orgJune 07, 2013
My unit comes on as soon as I turn water on and does not, repeat does not stop spraying. There is absolutely no movement in front of it, none whatsoever. The max pressure is 45 PSI.
Once activated, is is supposed to stop automatically when it no longer senses movement? I am very dissatisfied. The second unit will not spray at all. Senser clicks without water, but when I turn on the water, it just will not work.
Before returning for a refund, please let me know what can possibly be wrong with these?
