The Garden Sentinel Water Scarecrow is a motion activated sprinkler that scares cats, dogs, guinea fowl, hadida, birds, rabbits, and even human intruders, keeping them out of your garden.

The Water Scarecrow silently senses movement which activates a high pressure burst of water for 3 seconds over a 10m distance.

It only uses 2 to 3 cups of water per activation. Water is only sprayed over the area that is to be protected and this you easily set (radius arc can be set).

The Water Scarecrow is easy to install and move. Several Water Scarecrows can be connected on one water line.

It is solar powered.


Protect gardens, landscaped areas and yards from unwanted animal activity.
Hooks up in minutes with a standard garden hose.
Motion-activated it operates both day and night (settingds for either or both day and night).
120 degree motion sensor picks up movement up to 10m (32 feet) away. 


 When assembling the Water Scarecrow ensure you hand-tighten the various sections tight enough to ensure a proper seal.


Do not us the sensor housing to push the spike into the soil – hold the shaft below the sensor housing.  On the new model, there is a foot or hand pressure plate just above the pointed stake to help  in pushing the spike into the soil. Hold the shaft above this and push on the foot plate to get the spike into the soil. Hard soil may need prior moistening

When placing the Water Scrarecrow in your garden ensure there are no moving leaves or trees that will accidently trigger the motion sensor. The motion sensor is not a heat sensor, it activates on all movement within range.

It is not recommended to have the tap turned on at full pressure. Doing so can cause the Water Scarecrow to move around especially in loose soil due to the force of overly high pressured water. The Water Scarecrow is just as effective even under low pressure as if it were under high pressure.

If installing into loose soil it is recommend to use a plant steak or similar to ensure the Water Scarecrow remains upright.


Feel free to contact us should you wish to purchase the Water Scarecrow for resale purposes (case of 12 minimum order). Dealer enquiries are welcome.


A passive infrared sensor (PIR sensor) is an electronic sensor that measures infrared (IR) light radiating from objects in its field of view. They are most often used in PIR-based motion detectors.

When an animal is detected, its 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.

It requires 4 XAA 1.5V rechargeable battery needed (not included).
