Asmodeus: Anyone know if there is an easy way to couple a garden sprinkler with a motion sensor of some kind? If so that would work 100% Cool
EDIT: Beaten to it lol. That'll teach me for not reading the whole thread... Embarassed


Yes very easy with a standard alarm IR sensor and a garden irrigation valve.  Just need to get a high pressure hose so it does not burst, and seal the sensor against moisture/ants.  I've been on holiday for 3 weeks, else would have done it long ago.

I hadnt had any problems with cats since having the sprinkler.  So after all that time thought would be okay to remove it.  BIG MISTAKE. 2 nights later a cat sprayed the front door well and truly.  Must have been holding it in.  So have put the sprinkler back there again.
