The most advanced non-lethal method of night predator control. A computerised varying flash with three colours meaning predators are less likely to get used to it. Nine LED bulbs projecting 360 degrees can be seen over 1km.
Set where stock are or near poultry pens, Foxlights appears as if someone is patrolling with a flashlight which keeps predators away with their natural fear of man.
A solar panel collecting energy stored in 2AA rechargeable batteries. The life of these batteries should be approximately three years. A USB port allows charging from mains, if required.
Solar lights require good sunlight and may not be suited for forested or shaded areas. We recommend a combination of both lights in some circumstances.
Easy set up on a steel fence post, hung from a tree or on an existing fence. Easy to relocate with stock to free pastures.
Foxlights are very compatible with all guard and domestic animals.
“Foxlights” is an innovative and highly effective way to protect lambs, kids, poultry and other valuable animals from foxes and other night predators. By 2015 over 30,000 lights have been sold to satisfied customers across Australia. They are now being sold throughout the world to protect stock and crops against a vast number of predating animals.
Developed by Ian Whalan, an Australian farmer to keep foxes from taking his lambs of a night, “Foxlights” gives the perception of someone walking around the area with a flash light, thus keeping predators at bay. A computer chip on a power board with 9 LED bulbs creates a varying flash of blue, white and now red with different time sequences. This will deter animals that are smart enough to know that a standard flashing light is just that.
FOXLIGHTS ARE DESIGNED AS AN AID IN THE DETERRENT OF NIGHT PREDATORS, BUT MAY NOT SUCCEED AGAINST ALL ATTACKS
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Foxlight is a predator deterrent with a computerised flashing light that gives the impression of someone patrolling during hours of darkness. The number of lights required is determined by the area in which stock might be sleeping along with the undulation and vegetation of the area. More than one light may be required to be sure to have coverage from all sides. If the predator can not see the light from a distance, then it won’t be as effective.
Although originally designed to help protect sheep and lambs from fox attacks, our customers have come up with so many more uses for the light, such as:
Help protect our chooks, ducks and birds – by placing the lights close to their houses/aviary’s, the lights act as an aid to help deter foxes.
Deterring possums from entering roof cavities – being nocturnal they do not like the light
Help protect crops from Kangaroos and Ducks
Possums - deters them from entering roof cavities if placed inside the roof and from causing a ruckus on flat roof tops if placed on top of the roof.
Foxlights were the winner of the prestigious People’s Choice award on the ABC TVs ‘New Inventors’ program in Australia. View the program below:
- The light is projected at 360 degrees and can be seen for a distance of 2 kms.
- Works well in conjunction with guard dogs and other deterrents.
- A night sensor automatically turns the unit on at night and off at dawn.
- Made using the highest grade materials
- Easily mounted on a 3 sided steel post, hung on a wire fence or on an overhanging tree branch
