The Sureguard ScareCrow Sprinkler Repellent uses a Motion Sensor to detect the body heat of most animals and birds. Once triggered it deploys a startling burst of water combined with unexpected noise and motion creating a safe, highly effective deterrent.

It’s environmentally friendly and a safe alternative to chemical repellents.

Powerful Three-Way Action:  -> Water + Noise + Motion

Customer Reviews

If you have ducks in your pool then this is a must buy. It has been fantastic. Just wish I knew about the scarecrow a couple of years earlier.


Just magic. Easy setup and not a possum in sight since. Shall move it to the front garden for a night or two to scare of a marauding cat.


We purchased the scarecrow to keep cockatoos off our new planted garden beds. I would plant out a new area of garden - the cockatoos would notice and pull plants out, bite off flower heads etc. It was heartbreaking. We have installed scarecrow and it works brilliantly.


This product is amazing!! Before purchasing the scarecrow we tried everything; fake snakes, owls chopped chili and sprinkled it on the pavement but nothing stopped the birds until we installed the product - we are so excited, no more ducks and no more droppings!!! Customer service was fantastic, delivered very quickly. Thank you!!.

    Works a treat. Does NOT leak, dribble, refuse to work or any of the other problems I had with an inferior one I had before. Love watching the bloody cats scatter on the CCTV when it goes off. They are giving that route a wide berth at the moment, so that's pleasing! Very happy. and would buy another (and may need to!)

    Great product!
    I purchased this item as I had a pesky neighbourhood cat prowling around my property at night, attacking my indoor cat through my window. I had tried everything to stop this behaviour - speaking with the owners, cat repellent sand, a motion sensor ultrasonic pitch contraption and spiky mesh to no avail. I purchased this product as a last ditch effort to stop the offender and have had great success! On the first night I listened out until I heard the "whoosh!" of the water and didn't have the nightly visitor. The second night, a little later, I again heard a "whoosh!" and no further problems. This product has stopped the pesky cat in it's tracks and has stopped my little cat a lot of anxiety. This product arrived much quicker than expected and other than a little leaking at the hose join, I've not had any issues. Definitely recommend!

    Turkeys and rabbits have gone
    The brush turkeys and rabbits no longer visit the garden. The sure guard was easy to set up and works a treat. We just have to remember to turn off the water before harvesting our abundant crops.

    Bye Bye, Birdie!
    Earlier this year, a bush turkey decided our yard and veggie patch was cosy enough to call home, much to my dismay. He scratched up some of my newly planted seedlings, and raked up soil and leaves, etc, from the yard to make a nest. I tried all the tricks an online search said would work to get rid of him. Nothing helped. Day after day, it was a power struggle between the two of us, and I tell you, he nearly won the war! That was, until I found the motion activated sprinkler. Immediately, he was gone! I kept it going for 3 weeks, and hadn't seen evidence of him being back, so I removed the sprinkler from the yard. BIG mistake. Within 3 days, he was back. So now, my sprinkler is back in action, permanently. I've replanted the destroyed veggies, and they're doing well. This sprinkler is well worth the money! Much better than replacing dug up plants, and shovelling dirt each day. Highly recommended. Thanks, Sureguard!

    Sureguard Activated Water Duck Repellant
    Though we've got your newest and some of your older devices positioned around our swimming pool the ducks seem now not to take much notice of them anymore. [Editor: I see you've been using the repellents for 4 years. Ducks that seasonally visit year after year may eventually become desensitised to the water repellent, while new ducks should still be deterred but you don't want them learning from the older ducks. (See Wikipedia under desensitisation). I suggest reconditioning their response. Purchase an air horn from a boating supply (around $30). They run on compressed air. When the sprinkler activates, immediately sound the horn for 1 second. The ducks fly off and will associate the two stimuli. Repeat 2 or more times. Later they will respect the sprinkler repellent. CAUTION: Always use ear protection because the horn is very intense.]

    The unit works well for repelling cats. It would be good if there was a way to lower the spray without tilting the entire unit over. [Editor: Try the Spray Spread Adjustment. See page 5 on the manual]

    Fixed our rabbit problem
    Rabbits were eating our flower and vegetable garden but after installing the Sureguard Scarecrow the problem was fixed. Much better than the alternative methods of shooting or poisoning them. Recommended if you have an animal pest problem.

    The best pest remover!!!!
    I wish I had bought this earlier to keep cats/possums away from my house, I would be woken up in the middle of the night because my indoor cat was screaming at another cat or possum that he saw through the windows that were either on the fence or on the decking, but once I set up the sureguard, problem solved. It's well made and does as it is marketed. So far, I can now sleep in peace. Thankyou Sureguard

    Scarecrow Possum Deterrent
    We were on the verge of removing a particular tree from our garden as the possums had virtually destroyed it by eating all new growth and breaking small branches. The scarecrow worked a treat and immediately we noticed new growth and the return of lush foliage. The possums worked out that they could hide on the side away from the scarecrow due to the lush new growth so I installed a second scarecrow on the blind side. Problem solved!

    Ducks on Pool
    After trying many commercial and non-commercial devices to keep ducks off our 11 metre long pool at night I purchased 2 Scarecrows. After installing them it took a little experimentation to place them in the most effective positions but once I found the best locations the evidence of ducks reduced over 2 or 3 days until the pool stayed clear every night. Some other devices I had tried kept ducks away for a couple of weeks until they seemed to get used to the device and return. It's now been almost 4 weeks since I've had ducks so am hopeful that the more aggressive approach of the Scarecrow (spraying water) will keep them away for good. If it works long term the Scarecrow is worth every cent.

    works well!
    We got this to deter this possum family that lives in our backyard. They've been nibbling away on our veggie garden but the Scarecrow motion sprinkler managed to deter them and some of the birds around too! (We also got to use it to prank our friends too! :P) Great device!

    Deer me!!
    We have had on-going problems with deer eating and destroying our roses. After not trying to grow roses for a few years, I got back into it this year and replanted with new roses. I found the Scarecrow solar-powered motion detector sprinkler online and it sounded great. I could build an equivalent system myself, but the time to design and test my own reliable system makes the SureGuard Scarecrow actually quite cheap. But does it deter deer and protect the roses? Hell yeah! The deer actually chewed the new buds before I got my Scarecrow installed, so they had a taste and were eager for more. Once the Scarecrow was installed, which took 5 mins, no more deer! I turned the tap off when we went on holidays in case a hose burst, and guess what - the deer chewed off all the new buds while we were away. Once I reconnected the hose, no more deer, except in one section that the current Scarecrow can't reach. So I'm buying another one immediately. Highly recommended. (It's also good for a laugh when the kids come over for dinner and accidentally activate the sensor going down the driveway at night!)

    Managing pigeons
    I live in a village where pigeons do immense harm on roofs, fouling drinking water which is collected in rainwater tanks. I have had some success placing spikes along ridge tops and netting around solar panels, but still had pigeons on an area of about 25 square metres, nearest to a neighbour who has dozens of pigeons. I installed a Sureguard on the recommendation of another neighbour and it has been a total success, so much so that three other neighbours have now shown interest, including the one who is 'breeding' the pigeons. It was easy to install (I replaced the plastic spike with a metal one welded to a plate that I screwed onto the roof) and it works a charm. I have only had it about 3 weeks, but so far the pigeons have shown no sign of getting used to it..

    Mixed success
    I had initial success against a flock of wood ducks flying in to swim in our pool and crap around the edges. However the spray only worked sometimes and to a limited distance so I bought a second unit to double my efforts and cover more ground. Unfortunately the inconsistency of the spray activation (for whatever reasons) means that the ducks have not yet been fully detered and I'm pursuing other options. The service from Sureguard has been great but sadly these ducks don't care about that!

    Scarecrow Motion Activated Sprinkler - Solar Powered
    Product is great. We have had a lot of turkey issues and this appears to have solved the problem. Only comment I would make is that the plastic pole that it attaches to could be made of stronger plastic but still definitely worth the $$. The customer support is great and the person I spoke to on the phone couldn't have been more helpful. A really well run company

    This is an excellent product which works very well. We use it to keep possums away from our fruit trees and vegetables. We have three Sureguard sprayers. Previously we would often lose all of the plants overnight immediately after planting seedlings. This no longer happens. There is ample food elsewhere for the possums. The Sureguard is an excellent deterrent for unwanted vermin and therefore a great product.

    Cat deterrent
    Previously our front garden and drive way was a popular communal latrine for various neighbors cats. The installation of the Scarecrow has put a stop to visiting cats. But has also deterred annoying birds. This is the second model of Scarecrow I have used since 2014. Great work Sureguard and I highly recommended it’s use.

    Turkey moved away
    The Sureguard was easy to set up except the first spray faced me! The turkey visited a few times in the first week and now appears to have moved on. Has not been seen for 3 weeks now. So far so good.

    This is a good product for the job. Appropriate mounting is tricky as is avoiding slow leaks. But it did the job.
