How it Works

Introducing our SmartCats StayHome Cat Fence System

A thin Polywire attaches to brackets at the top of your fence and is supported 60mm above the top of your fence. The SmartCats controller puts a small electronic pulse in the wire once every second, for example pulse.....pulse.....pulse.....pulse.....

When your cat jumps or climbs to the top of your fence it will rub or brush against the Polywire and feel the small electronic pulse in the wire, your cat will be startled and not understand what caused it and will jump down back into your yard.

After a few attempts at going over the fence with the same result, your cat will lose interest in going over the fence. You will see your cat become content with staying home and you will quickly become confident that your precious cat is safe from the dangers of roaming outside your property.

The best way to understand how it works is to compare this small electronic pulse to the static you sometimes feel getting out of the car or from nylon carpet, it is completely harmless but it startles your cat and because your cat does not understand the cat fence it will retreat back to where it feels safe, in your yard.

An additional benefit of a SmartCats StayHome cat fence is other cats will not come into your yard, this will prevent the risk of your cat being injured in a cat fight.

Many of our customers have also commented in their reviews their cats have stopped spraying both inside and outside the house. This is because cats are very territorial and they feel stressed when neighbourhood cats prowl along the top of the fence or come into their yard, your cats reaction will be to mark its territory and spray around the home.

Combination of Fence Types

Many properties have more than one type of fence, maybe some Timber Fences and some Metal Colorbond Fences. If you have a combination of different fences please contact us and we will provide the right combination of components to suit your individual requirements at no additional cost to you.

Minimum Requirements

  • The SmartCats StayHome fence attaches to your existing fence
  • Minimum height requirement for your existing fence 1.5m or 5 feet high.
  • The controller plugs into a normal power point
  • The controller is not weather proof and must be protected from getting wet.
  • The wire must not touch any branches or leaves, the only maintenance required is to keep leaves and branches trimmed to prevent them touching the wire. If branches or leaves do touch the wire no harm is caused to the controller but it will reduce the effectiveness of the SmartCats StayHome fence.
