StayAway® Automatic Pet Deterrent

Warn your pets away from trouble with a high-pitched alarm and a startling burst of air.
The StayAway® automatic pet deterrent safely and humanely protects your porch, patio, potted plants, and countertops. Just place it in the area you want to protect, and the StayAway® does the rest. When a cat approaches the area, the StayAway® responds with a warning sound and a brief, harmless spray of compressed air to warn your pet away. Once your cat learns to recognize the warning sound, you can switch to the "sound only" mode to conserve compressed air for an even more economical solution.
  • safely keeps cats away from protected areas
  • detects motion up to three feet (one meter) away
  • combines sound with compressed air for a harmless, odorless deterrent
  • operates up to 200 times on a single, replaceable canister of compressed air
  • the motion sensor and spray are separately adjustable so they can be positioned precisely

"Lick bad animal behaviour"

by Joanne Hatherly

"StayAway is a compressed air canister fitted with a motion sensor that sounds a high-pitched whine, followed by a short burst of air when activated. It sounds like a cat hissing, and in fact, was meant for felines, not canines. Having already lost three kilos of butter, we weren't in the mood to be species-specific.
I opened the cabinet doors to the kitchen trash and tucked the StayAway canister alongside the fully loaded bin.
"If these dogs have lawyers, they'll have a field day with this," said Dave. "They'll get the dogs off on entrapment."
Within minutes, Mucus snuck into the kitchen. We heard the alarm followed by a hiss.Mucus beat a hasty, yet stealthy, retreat. The garbage remained exposed for four hours; exactly three hours, 59 minutes and 20 seconds longer than it would have lasted before the StayAway ambush."

"A Christmas surprise that will blow the cat away"

by Jura Koncius

"The new StayAway canister from Contech Electronics combines a battery-operated motion-detection device that senses a pet prowling nearby and activates a burst of compressed air and a one-second warning screech. Animals run for their lives, hopefully never to return, according to Karen Schindelhauer, of the Canadian company, whose motto is "promoting harmony between animals and humans." This is the same firm that makes bird feeders that whirl to fling squirrels through the air and mats that teach "good house manners" by zapping pets with a mild electrical pulse"
