The first flashing light unit made and soldwas Nite Guard Back in 2006 we used them in a movie TitledRegarding Chickens. What's the purposeé They have a small red flashing light thatcan cause night hunting animals to avoid an area. They charge up automatically from the sunvia a solar panel. Charge during the day and then blink automaticallyall night long. Night Hunting animals see the flashing lightand then become stressed, thinking the flashing
light may be another animal. Then the animal will avoid the area and yourlivestock or bird feed is safe. The predator will walk down wind, trying tosmell the blinking light source. When they cannot figure out what it is, theconcept is that they will go away. Some people use these flashing lights in gardensto keep deer, raccoons and other garden browsers out. The main purpose of this tutorial is not to proveor disprove how effective flashing lights are, but to demonstrate how the four availableunits compare with one another.
There are four different flashing light unitsavailable, they do NOT perform the same, some are made better than others and offer morefeatures. Nite Guard has been produced for many yearsand was the first type that I purchased back in 2005. Nite Guard does not have an access for ownersto replace batteries. But many of the units continue to work even after many years ofyear round use. they blink less and don't last as long, but are still working. Several years later, another company madea new style of flashing light units. Solar
Nite Eyes. Works the same as Nite Guard, BUT has a magnetfor mounting on metal surfaces and has two flashing led lights. Larger solar panel on Nite Eyes and two leds. There may be no difference between the twoas to weather one keeps predators away more than the other. In this regard, they performthe same in my opinion. After just one day of charging on the windowsill, they will faithfully blink through the night and turn themselves off at sunrise.
Predator Guard made some very helpful changesto the original designs. they have added a onoff switch and slanted the solar paneland added a magnet. The magnet allows you to change the positionfrequently onto anything ironsteel so that predators do not become accustomed to thelocation. keep them guessing. The angled solar panel will help keep snowfrom covering it and keeping it from charging properly. Does not come on automatically unless theon off button is pressed. this allows you to store the unit without the battery runningdown. The only style of flashing light unit
that has this feature. The other units will run down completely ifstored in a dark place. Just before I made this tutorial, another flashinglight unit showed up on the market, so I purchased six of them for review. It's called Yard Sentinel Predator Eye. 12 the price of all of the other units, youcan purchase a package of two for 24.00 Appears identical to the first design (NiteGuard). They appear identical on the outside.
