Using the Scatterbird Mark 4
To operate the Scatterbird Mark 4, you will require a 12-volt battery and a cylinder of propane gas, any size is suitable for use with the Scatterbird.
Use of an internal 12-volt battery (not included) is recommended to keep the wiring away from vermin and to prevent any kind of flood damage to the battery and wiring.
The Scatterbird MK4’s plated stainless steel legs raise the unit off of the ground to allow the full force of the bang to be heard with maximum effect.
The Scatterbird App provides an easy way of programming the Scatterbird MK4 in the comfort of your home, then sending the program to the bird scarer by Bluetooth when close to the unit at a later time.
The Scatterbird Mark 4 bird scaring gas gun features a sophisticated, flexible, yet simple to operate control system allowing you to programme the frequency of the bangs and the interval between them. The Scatterbird can be set for an automatic start at dawn and an automatic shut off at dusk. The bangs can be pre-set at precise intervals or a random pattern can be easily selected.
The Scatterbird App allows the user to:
Store programs to be used as and when desired by simply selecting the program and sending to the Scatterbird.
Change different variables – number of bangs, interval between bangs or operating times.
Have the same program or a different program for each day. Included in this is the ability to have no operation during some days at all if wanted.
