Owl Alert Review
Owl Alert could best be described as a 21st century scarecrow for home use. It offers several different ways to fend off pests from your yard, including light, motion, and sound.
This isn’t the first device that has been marketed as a way to repel pests, although it is certainly the first As Seen on TV product of its kind that we have seen. And, while the idea of an angry-looking gold owl perched in your yard may border on ridiculous, the fact that it offers three different ways to fend off unwanted animals cannot be overlooked.
Owl Alert is motion-activated, so whenever it is triggered – either by an unwanted animal, your pet, or yourself – it will begin rotating, shining laser beams, and emitting ultrasonic sounds.
This device is ideal for areas where you don’t want animals to freely roam, including your own pets. There will be some pets that get accustomed to the electronic owl and simply ignore it, but this will vary from pet to pet. For the occasional unwanted visitor, however, it should do the job quite well.
Based on its website registration date, it appears that Owl Alert is a new item. We’ve found that newer As Seen on TV items tend to ship more slowly than their more established counterparts. Although we can’t say for sure that will be the case with Owl Alert, it is something to keep in mind when ordering.
Overall, we think Owl Alert will work about as advertised. It may not be a 100% solution, but it should at least alleviate problems with unwanted pests. And a rotating, laser-firing gold owl is just pretty cool.
There are perhaps a surprising number of decoy owl scarecrows available for purchase. This model by Bird Blinder, for example, costs about $18 and sports a solid 4.5 star rating among over a hundred reviews.
To its credit, however, Owl Alert does offer a rather unique moving design and robust set of features not found in less expensive competitors.
