CATWatch Cat Deterrent

One CATWatch unit protects up to 1350 sq. ft.(125 sq. )

Catwatch helps to protect gardens & birds from cats all year round

Following the largest study of its kind ever undertaken in the UK, CATWatch is now the only cat deterrent scientifically tested and recommended by The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).

What are the first questions likely to be when you consider buying an electronic cat deterrent?

Does it work? Can you prove it?
Well, the answer to these questions is YES!!

CATWatch, the UK's leading cat deterrent, has successfully completed a two-year scientific trial conducted by the RSPB to determine its deterrent effect on cats in residential gardens.
The results are published in the Applied Animal Behaviour Science Journal after peer review.

The research concluded that CATWatch reduces cat intrusions into gardens. The longer the unit is in place, the more effective it is.

So....now you are faced with a choice. Some units are cheaper, but may be less durable, less effective and cover a smaller area. CATWatch, on the other hand, is built to last, is a more cost-effective deterrent, proven to work AND recommended by the RSPB. It also comes with a 2-year guarantee and has been on the market since 1993.

Which one would you choose?

CATWatch has been bought by thousands of people throughout the world and yet fewer than 1% of all people who buy CATWatch return it for refund or exchange. The fact is, CATWatch comes with a 2 year product warranty so you can buy with complete confidence.

Progressively reduces cat intrusions within your garden

Many people find cat-fouling a nuisance. This device is proven to reduce the presence of cats in gardens and the deterrent effect increases over time. Put simply, CATWatch actually trains cats to stay away from your garden.
CATWatch does this by emitting a unique ultrasonic alarm, triggered by the cat's movement and body heat as soon as it enters the protected area.

Inaudible to humans

The series of CATWatch alarm frequencies are set above the human hearing range so you can enjoy your garden in complete peace and tranquillity.

Protects up to twice the area of other cat deterrents

One CATWatch unit will protect an area of up to 1,350 sq. ft. - up to twice the area of other makes. Furthermore, many other deterrents simply emit a random or permanent ultrasound signal regardless of whether a cat is present or not. That's why many people who have tried other cat deterrents eventually choose CATWatch.

Works in all weather conditions

CATWatch is designed to run trouble free all year round and in all weather conditions from -30 C to + 60 C. The low voltage computer controlled micro circuitry is completely sealed inside the unit, so that in the unlikely event of water entering inside, it will still continue to function and be absolutely safe to touch.

 

Set your garden free of chemicals and barriers

No one really wants to cover their borders or garden ponds with unsightly netting to protect them from someone else's cat! And probably every gardener has tried the pricey alternative chemical products.
Apart from being messy, they need constant re-application and their success rate at keeping cats at bay is inconsistent at best.

Easy to use

CATWatch can be moved and positioned at ground level in seconds or secured at the base of walls, fences and trees. Simply clip in a battery or use the optional mains adaptor kit, then switch on and relax.

Sold worldwide since 1993

CATWatch sells all over the world, because it works and keeps on working totally unobtrusively, making it far more cost effective and unbeatable value for money in the long run.

How long does CATWatch take to work?

Just like humans, cats have various behavioural traits. Some, upon encountering CATWatch will flee immediately. Other cats, of a more territorially dominant disposition, may actually settle down in front of CATWatch in an attempt to make it move! However, ultimately the cats accept it is a battle they cannot win and move on to another area. Therefore please be patient if CATWatch doesn't always appear to work right away. The scientific trials prove that CATWatch works. Our experience suggests, however, that it may take longer to do so in some cases.

Cat owners - protect your cats' life

Cats Protection recommend CATWatch to their members as a safe and effective way of preventing cats straying out onto the road, or controlling their movement within the garden so the cat will avoid certain areas.

Power check facility

When you switch CATWatch on, it automatically checks the power source (battery or mains adaptor) and when it is working properly you will hear a series of clear bleeps

High tech self-diagnosing electronics

CATWatch incorporates a self-testing microchip electronic diagnostic system which continuously checks the unit for correct operation. In the unlikely event of a problem developing, the red light behind the lens and/or the electronic click heard as the unit activates will stop working. As we cannot hear the alarm this ensures that you can easily check that CATWatch is working correctly.

For maximum power and economy use the mains adaptor kit

The mains adaptor is recommended if a lot of people or creatures pass by the unit because this may shorten battery life. (Average battery life - 3 months).
Other advantages are: -
i. Maintains operation at peak efficiency as opposed to the declining power of batteries.
ii. The alarm is increased by 35%
iii. Long term economy - costs just a few pence per month to run.
iv. Completely safe - only the thin 30ft 12-volt bell wire runs outdoors to the unit.

What makes CATWatch so effective?

Only the finest quality components are used to produce CATWatch.
After many years research and development we established, in particular, that maximum performance could only be achieved by using the highest specification equipment in four critical areas - namely the power source, LED detector, micro chips and speaker. It is this attention to detail that has made not only the original, but still the best, electronic cat deterrent available in Britain today.

  • PASSIVE INFRA-RED SENSOR DETECTS BODY MOVEMENT & HEAT - SO NO HIDING PLACE FOR CATS.

The results speak for themselves...

"In the last 9 years my garden has been plagued by cats. I have a 20ft x 8ft pond and have had numerous fish mysteriously disappearing over the years. The main bugbear was that due to the condition of the soil it is very attractive as a cat toilet.
I have tried the cat pepper, the inert clay chippings impregnated with garlic, orange and lemon peelings, growing mint, putting half filled plastic bottles in the garden, etc etc etc. All total failures.
This year, after sowing my flower seeds and having them destroyed each day I browsed some websites and forums and decided to buy your product.
Although by no means the cheapest, it seemed the most logical and considering “you get what you pay for” principle, opted that I had nothing to lose considering the 90 day money back guarantee.
I will admit that I was cynical but the morning following installation I inspected my flower beds and was pleased to find NO evidence of any feline visits… further, I have had none since the installation (fingers crossed) and the seedlings are progressing. I would wholeheartedly recommend your product (and have done) to anybody experiencing the same frustrations as me regarding cats."
Terry Waldron. Eltham, London.

"We are writing to inform you of the great success we have had deterring neighbouring cats from our back and front lawns having installed your CatWatch deterrents.
It is making life much more pleasant when setting out to mow, not having to worry about what you might
step in or run the lawn mower over!!!
It has also given us the added bonus of encouraging birds into the garden giving us great pleasure.
Although we have had plenty of starlings feeding from the fat feeders our patience has been rewarded in the last few days with a pair of starlings with their three offspring, sparrows, blackbirds and a bluetit visiting the various feeders much to our delight.
Without CATWatch this would not have been possible."
Margaret Townsend & Ralph Parker. Christchurch, Dorset

"The reason for my letter is to thank you for a brilliant product. Since we installed our CATWatch we have not seen one single cat in our garden, despite there being several cats living in neighbouring houses.
We are now able to enjoy feeding the birds without the fear that we maybe luring them into danger.
Congratulations on such a useful invention."
Linda Fuller, Hoddesdon, Herts.

"Dear Sir,
I bought a Catwatch from you earlier this year, and it has proved successful beyond my expectations. Way beyond them, in fact, because in the eight or so weeks since installation my back lawn has remained totally free of cats. Over the last two or three years I have spent I should think more then 250 on sprays, powders, granules etc. all of which had some effect for a day or so, but equally all of which proved themselves to be quite useless after a short while."
Mr P Tuohy, E. Sussex

"For price, versatility and performance we choose Catwatch" Garden Answers

*Practical Fishkeeping Product of the Month*

Our colleagues on Garden Answers gave Catwatch a best buy award. While digging, delving and defecating in your best seedbed can be pretty annoying, the sight of a feline assassin with 200 worth of Koi in its toothy gob is enough to send you reaching for Grandpas' WWII souvenir Luger.

You can dissuade them from visiting your pond with Catwatch, a neat and unobtrusive motion detector, which like those increasing security light systems, responds to movement up to 40' away. But it works day and night by giving off a high frequency sound which is inaudible to humans (and neighbours) but gives the cat a jolt, which either moves it on its way or causes it to freeze on the spot. After 7 seconds the alarm stops and recommences at a different frequency when the cat moves.

Placed effectively by your pond (it can be staked into the ground or attached to a wall) it should create a cat-free zone.

The unit is weatherproof and powered by a battery which will last between 2 weeks and 4 months, as the movement detector cannot distinguish between cats and birds.

An adaptor kit is available to solve this problem.

In a Nutshell Review: A kinder cat scarer.

Quick Verdict: Could be the answer to a pond owner's prayers.

CatWatch WHOA! HOLD IT FELLAS! YOU BETTER GIVE NO.9 A MISS FROM NOW ON - THEY'VE JUST BOUGHT CATWATCH

 

Product Review - The Garden Answers team tested ultrasound cat deterrents, with positive results.
Our Choice For price, versatility, and performance we chose the Catwatch. It can be switched off at the unit, is waterproof, has an infa-red detector, issues warning sound blasts to deter even the most persistent of cats - and it works!

Keeping moggies at bay

Gloom descended on my household last week when Jaws, a sleek, silver Ghost Carp, fell victim to a neighbour's cat. My quest for a safe but effective deterrent ended with Catwatch. The device senses movement within a 1,350 sq ft zone and emits a piercing, very high frequency alarm only audible by the cat.
Desmond Rafferty, DAILY EXPRESS

Fight off felines

"We may be a nation of animal lovers but we prefer to keep the cat members of the animal kingdom out of our gardens."

High tech deterrent

But how can cats be kept away when you're not at home?
M Tannel from Ferndown in Dorset and K Snelling from Dartford in Kent were united in their praise for Catwatch. "The inventor should be canonised," the latter writes. The small box works by emitting a high frequency noise when movement is detected within a range of about 40 feet. The sound is beyond the range of the human ear, but is very audible to cats.
V Scaresbrook from Congleton in Cheshire describes how "the local cats now rush through the garden at great speed, shaking their heads". She regularly moves her Catwatch around, so that the cats don't find a spot where they can stalk in peace.

Animal Deterrents Tested. 6 Month Trial

Catwatch

Product: Infrared detector monitoring a fan shaped area of 100 to a distance of 12m- an area of about 120sq. m. On detection of movement or body heat, it emits a burst of ultrasound that only affects cats. This sound can damage human hearing if ear is placed close against unit.

Weather resistance: Not affected by weather conditions.

Suggested uses: Creates a no-go area for cats, protecting gardens from damage and fouling. Also protects fish in pools and birds.

How to use: Set up with lens 8in./20cm about ground level. Mains adaptor recommended if a lot of people or creatures pass by the unit, because this shortens the battery's life.

Individual Opinions

Allen thought that his was excellent, being able to install it and forget all about it. The battery soon went flat because of the number of birds setting off the unit, so he preferred the mains adaptor. He thought it was well worth the cost to have a permanent deterrent.

Michael thought this deterrent was a must for everyone plagued by cats, working out cheaper in the long run than dusts and sprays. He found that the battery lasted eight to ten weeks because in his garden only cats triggered the unit.

Patricia was very impressed with the device which she thought well worth the outlay. It was immediately effective, easy to use, with cats no longer a problem. The battery lasted 12 weeks.

Bridget found this very effective, barring all cats from her garden and bird feeding area. She thought that the unit would be better with rechargeable batteries because the batteries went flat so quickly. The mains adaptor solved that problem but created another in having to route the wire outdoors from an indoor socket.
