CATWatch, the Ultrasonic cat deterrent, is the only cat deterrent, scientifically tested and approved by The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). When the CATWatch unit is triggered, the Ultrasonic bursts cause the cat to retreat and the longer the unit is in place, the more effective it is. It is an innovative and humane way of banishing cats from your property.

  • Inaudible to humans and harmless to all species
  • Tested and approved by the RSPB 
  • Operates day and night in most weather conditions
  • Power supply: 1 x 9 volt Duracell battery or for increased performance use the optional mains adaptor (30% louder sound)
  • Covers up to 125 sq. m
  • 2 year warranty 
  • Proudly made in Great Britain
  • For every CATWatch sold, Concept Research will make a contribution to RSPB Sales Ltd., the trading subsidiary of the RSPB

CATWatch is durable, effective and covers a larger area than cheaper units, making CATWatch a more cost-effective deterrent. It also comes with a two-year warranty and a 90 day money back guarantee.

This deterrent works by detecting body heat and movement, therefore, we advise the unit is turned off when you are in the garden for long periods of time to preserve battery life. 

Does it work?

Yes! CATWatch, has successfully completed a two-year scientific trial conducted by the RSPB to determine its deterrent effect on cats in residential gardens. The results are published in the Applied Animal Behaviour Science Journal after peer review. The research concluded that CATWatch reduces cat intrusions into gardens. The longer the unit is in place, the more effective it is.

Works in most weather conditions

CATWatch is designed to run trouble free all year round and in all weather conditions from -30 C to +60 C. The low voltage computer controlled micro circuitry is completely sealed inside the unit, the only deterrent with this feature, so that in the unlikely event of water entering inside, it will still continue to function and be absolutely safe to touch.

Easy to use

CATWatch can be moved and positioned at ground level in seconds or secured at the base of walls, fences and trees. Simply clip in a 9v Duracell Alkaline battery (not included) or use the optional mains adapter kit, then it switch on.

Power check facility

When you switch CATWatch on, it automatically checks the power source (battery or mains adapter) and when it is working properly you will hear a series of clear bleeps.

High tech self-diagnosing electronics

CATWatch incorporates a self-testing microchip electronic diagnostic system which continuously checks the unit for correct operation. In the unlikely event of a problem developing, the red light behind the lens and/or the electronic click heard as the unit activates will stop working. As we cannot hear the alarm this ensures that you can easily check that is CATWatch working correctly.

For maximum power and economy use mains adapter kit

The mains adapter is recommended as average battery life is 2 -3 months & requires 1 x 9v Duracell alkaline battery.
Advantages are:

  • Maintains operation at peak efficiency as opposed to the declining power of batteries
  • The alarm is increased by 30%
  • Long term economy - costs just a few pence per month to run
  • Completely safe - only the thin 30ft 12-volt bell wire runs outdoors to the unit
  • Passive infra-red sensor detects body movement and heat - so no hiding place for cats.
  • Electronic micro-circuitry and computer controlled microchip activates signal as cat enters protected area - and switches off as the animal leaves
  • High quality speaker emits series of modulating ultrasound frequencies 20-24 kHz - repellent to cats
  • On/off switch plus red l.e.d. light
  • Positioning stake
  • Secure all weather high impact casing

User reviews

"I have always had good results with the CATWatch deterrent and if definitely makes the garden a safer place for the birds …"
M S, Bournemouth, Dorset

"When I moved into my first house with a garden, I hoped to be able to plant up the borders and sit outdoors and enjoy it. The reality was the local cats were using the garden as a huge litter tray. It was very unpleasant digging, the smell was appalling – and then what to do with the mess! I installed a Catwatch 6 months ago and it was immediately effective; I have not had any problems with cats since. It is very easy to install. I use a battery as I do not have a power supply in the garden and have not had to replace it yet. I am now able to enjoy my garden as originally hoped! Thank you!"
Katy, Jan 2017

"We have tried everything to keep two extremely determined cats from entering the garden and using it as their personal loo. Even worse they hide in wait for the birds and climb the trees after them (not that they manage to catch them in the trees) but in the spring they would have been after the nests. After finding the remains of a bird they had caught we purchased the cat deterrent and so far so good. So far plenty of birds and no cats."
Maureen, January 2017

"All is well now with my CATWatch in place – I watched one of my neighbours more persistent cats jump and retreat as I switched it on after gardening yesterday! What an example you set of a combination of advanced technology and ‘old fashioned’ service. Thank you!"
J s, Preston, Lancashire

"… the CATWatch is now in place and the garden is now free of cats and the birds have returned … many thanks."

"Many thanks for the excellent service your company have provided …. top marks for customer care. We are about to give our little front garden a rethink, so will probably order another CATWatch when this is completed."
Mr & Mrs JB, Bingley, West Yorkshire

"I have one of your CATWatch deterrent machines which is giving me excellent results. We have not had a cat in the garden for weeks and now allows the birds to feed in peace."
