From The Manufacturer

Tired of critters wreaking havoc in your yard? Are they eating or destroying your garden, flowers, or other yard vegetation? The Yard Enforcer is a motion-activated sprinkler that combines sound, water, motion and ingenuity as a defense to one of your most precious assets: your landscape. They deter deer, birds, cats, dogs, skunks, opossums, and other similar pests and animals without hurting them. The exclusive Detection Mode feature allows you to control when the Yard Enforcer is activated. You can use them only during daylight hours, or, for protection 24/7, select the ‘always on’ mode. Only want to protect the yard at night so it doesn’t spray human visitors during the day? The ‘night only’ mode will do just that. The Yard Enforcer has the ability to increase the water enforcement area by connecting additional impact sprinklers (sold separately), via the dual flow-through ports controlled by the valve. Another option is to increase the protected zone with additional Enforcers that can be linked together through the flow-through outlet. The powerful infrared sensor can detect intruders from up to 40 feet away and has a wide viewing angle of 120 degrees, that’s 1600 square feet of protective coverage from a single unit. The Orbit Yard Enforcer (TM) Motion-Activated Sprinkler protects landscapes and gardens from animals and pests. A powerful combination of spray, motion and noise not only acts as a deterrent to scare off animals, but also conditions them to stay away from the enforced area. The heat and motion-activated sensor detects movement from up to 40 feet away and triggers the valve to spray a burst of water. The heavy-duty metal dual-step spike allows you to position the Yard Enforcer wherever you need it in your yard. The Yard Enforcer is also the only motion-activated sprinkler that includes a flow-through outlet above the valve. That means you can add sprinklers to the enforced area that are triggered by the sensor as well. The dual-purpose sprinkler has a timed watering feature that allows you to water your garden 30 minutes at a time. Other pest and animal repellent methods simply do not provide the same level of simplicity and control: fences are expensive; netting is inconvenient; and repellent wears off and is harmful to you. Keep deer away from vegetable gardens, cats out of flowerbeds, birds from strawberry patches and ponds, and dogs away from lawns without the use of harmful methods: Don’t hurt em, just squirt em.

What reviewers didn't like

Not available for international shipping
Not available for international shipping
Leakage associated with the water connector
One of the top complaints about motion sensor sprinklers is that they leak or that the thread on the hose connect break over time. This is not an issue with the Orbit models as they are made of thicker plastic and metal parts.
Orbit 62100 Yard Enforcer Motion Activated Sprinkler also comes with a number of downsides. Firstly, it is limited in stock and as such is often sold out. Secondly, it is not eligible for shipping to some countries.
Can leak at times
The only thing I can think of for a con is it cost a few extra dollars than other products of its kind. That being said I would rather pay a couple of extra dollars for the best product available.
