Essential Info

Get a pest deterrent and burglar alarm in one! The YardContro electronic yard fence helps keep outdoor spaces free from unwanted pests or trespassers by creating an undetectable, 360° radar zone covering an approximately 30 ft. (700 sq. ft.) area. Requires 4 D batteries (sold separately).


What's Included

  • YardContro Electronic Yard Fence YC12
  • More Info

    When the built-in motion sensor detects an intrusion, it responds by emitting a high-frequency 120dB sound blast and flashing a powerful strobe light. A selector switch lets you choose how it responds. To fend off dogs, cats and other wild animals, use the ultrasonic mode, which emits an alarm that's bothersome to animals, but inaudible to humans. To scare away human trespassers or would-be thieves, use the standard mode that everyone can hear.

    The YardContro features weatherproof design for indoor or outdoor use, even in wet weather. Runs on 4 "D" batteries for up to 2,000 10-second sound releases (batteries sold separately). Includes brackets for easy mounting to walls, fences, trees or posts. Manufacturer's part number YC12.

    Stopped working after 2 weeks

    I saw many complaints about Yard Contro not being water tight. The design is the problem. And the O ring falls out easily. I put 2 small dabs of silicon glue on the bottom of the O ring & a thin layer of silicon grease on the top. Still I do suggest putting a plastic bag or a small, kitchen, glass over the control cover. No water problems & the device works fine.

    It work OK for several months, then, the high-frequency sirening sound did not work, just it produces a lower mild sound with the strobe light, which did not scare dogs at all
    Bruce -- Wisconsin   5/14/2010
    This unit has good electronics and weather protection but does not ward away deer. I have seen deer walk up to the unit while the strobe is flashing and the speaker is emitting sound. They are not at all frightened by it.
    Jen -- Southeast Wisconsin   3/15/2010
    I got mine about 10 days ago and just love it. The kennel of dogs next door has stopped barking at my home and not sure what the person meant about batteries, but mine are going strong as can be and it's been beeping like crazy have rabbit and other critter issues, too. I can't tell about the rabbits just yet because of all the doo-doo they've left behind previously but can say I haven't seen one in the yard recently.
    JONATHAN -- jacksonville, FL   2/5/2010
    Positive: seems to work Negative: no way to turn off the strobe light feature and sucks batteries dry in one day (ability to plug, but cord not included)
    Michael Wagner -- phoenix, Az   11/5/2009
    Terrible product, range to track a human movement is about 4-5 feet at best, sometimes 2-3. I am sorry I purchased this, a waste of 50 bucks.
    ARLENE -- mckinleyville, CA   9/16/2009
    this is a replacement unit, we use it and it works to keep kritters off our lawn. We can use the yard again. a good product from a reliable company. AA
    ARLENE -- mckinleyville, CA   9/8/2009
    This is our second unit, we think it works well to keep the unwanted out of our yard.
    Den -- victoria, BC   8/1/2009
    Operating instructions say Do not immerse this unit in water ... However, this device cannot handle water from rain or sprinklers - bought three, all three returned to factory within 30 days plus one was DOA. Audio alarm is inconsistent and controls break down all too easily - and rather than be frightened, at least one dog wanted to get closer to it - despite my changing the frequency. No way to get your money back after 30 days even with brand new replacements that are unlikely to last any longer than the first ones: a POOR Product.
    DAVID -- jacksonville, FL   5/11/2009
    I have three of these now. One is a back up. I have had these for about 2 years now. They do keep the rodents out of my Engine Bay. I just put in the engine when the car is cool and it does the rest.
    RICHARD -- los angeles, CA   9/30/2008
    When a squirrel, your dog, and a few neighbor's cats all walk right up to the device and sit down in front of it, staring at it, then it gets a poor rating. SO what if it blinks and has a sound coming out of it. It's ineffective!
    DAVID -- jacksonville, FL   8/12/2008
    I have two other of this same product and love them very much. They work as stated and do not effect the other wild life. We use them to keep the field mice and other small critters out from the car's engine bay, etc.
    EMLYN -- north richland hills, TX   5/3/2008
    I was disappointed in the sensitivy range. I wish that the burst of sound was longer. The cats soon found that if they waited the sound would go and they would be on their way to an out of range area. The battery install has much to be desired.
    TERRENCE -- leesburg, VA   4/16/2008
    This product has been amazing...took care of our terrible raccoon problem. I thanks so much
    PETER -- victoria, BC   10/1/2007
    Lacks any quality control. Many units dead on arrival. Limited range
    ALLAN C. -- semmes, AL   8/23/2007
    does not work as advertised.
    PETER -- victoria, BC   8/20/2007
    When the unit works it is good, unfortunately we have had about 1 out of every 5 dead upon arrival. Poor quality control
    ALLAN C. -- semmes, AL   8/9/2007
    Product does not work as advertised.Doesn't even come close. I actually witnessed a dog approach it, sniff it, urinate on it, sniff it again and it never went off. I returned the first one as being defective. I'm going to return the second one as well.
    PETER -- victoria, BC   8/2/2007
    Had several fail in a rain storm. Not as weather proof as advertised.
