How Eagle Eye Works

The Eagle Eye's reflective pyramid rotates via an electric motor, sending the beams around in a menacing pattern. The light spectrum reflected back by the Eagle Eye disorients birds in flight by limiting their vision significantly. This causes the bird to deviate in flight and fly to another destination.

Powering the Unit

The system works off 12-volt electricity from a 5watt solar panel or from a transformer plugged into an 240v AC outlet. The solar panel provides power to a battery system that can run the unit during the night. A wide variety of brackets and lights are available to mount to any surface.

Coverage

The Eagle Eye can cover a vast area and should always be installed as part of a system or network of two units or more.  The Eagle Eye reflects sunlight back in the direction of the sun, leaving an unprotected area behind the unit. This changes during the day as the sun moves from East to West. Buildings, trees and other obstacles can create shadows as well. To overcome this, multiple units may be used. Additionally, powerful LED lights may be mounted above the unit to mimic sunlight.

What to Expect

The Eagle Eye can be expected to deter a high-percentage of resident birds (fewer if the pressure is heavy); in these cases it should be reinforced with population dispersal, site cleanup, mechanical deterrents and/or physical deterrents. Should reflections irritate people in nearby buildings, deflectors or Eagle Eye RED (tinted unit) can be installed to reduce the issue. The units will require cleaning and annual maintenance so a maintenance contract should be contemplated with a accredited Eagle Eye installer. In fact, apart from horticultural and agricultural situations, Eagle Eye must be installed by an accredited installer.
