More details on the PetSafe SSSCAT® Spray Deterrent
Overview: The PetSafe SSSCAT (PPD00-16168) is a deterrent that helps keep pets away from areas that are off-limits. The device includes an unscented aerosol can with a motion detector unit that emits a safe, odorless spray to startle your pet. SSSCAT can be an effective and harmless way to keep your pet from jumping on furniture, entering a room, digging into the garbage can, or hopping up onto your counters. SSSCAT is powered by 4 AAA batteries (not included), and is safe for dogs and cats of all sizes and breeds.
Motion Detector Unit: The SSSCAT motion detector unit fits atop the aerosol spray can and uses infrared to detect movement up to 3 feet away. Movement is detected through changes in temperature, and should be used in areas where the temperature is between 60°F and 80°F. A dog's normal body temperature is about 102°F, while a cat's is about 103°F. When motion is detected, SSSCAT emits the spray up to 39" from the unit. A switch on the rear of the motion detector unit lets you turn the SSSCAT pet deterrent on or off, as desired.
Spray Adjustments: The direction of the spray is adjustable both vertically and horizontally. To avoid spraying your pet in the face, you can adjust the vertical direction to one of three positions. The spray can be also be adjusted to one of five horizontal positions by turning the nozzle to the right or left.
Power Requirements: The PetSafe SSSCAT pet deterrent is powered by four AAA batteries. The batteries insert into the top of the motion detector unit. The average life of the batteries is approximately 2-3 months, depending upon how often the unit is activated.
Refills: Refills of the SSSCAT unscented aerosol spray (3.89 oz.) are available when needed (item # 481PD16165). Each can contains approximately 80 to 100 sprays.
Product Recommendations: The SSSCAT pet deterrent should not be placed in direct sunlight or near HVAC vents. The motion detector works best when the unit is positioned where the pet can pass in front of the sensor instead of walking directly toward it. The spray can is under pressure, and should never be left in a car where the temperatures can reach over 113°F. It should be used in well ventilated areas.
