This is all marketing hype. Most people that I've talked to said that
they don't work. I found one in the trash, and tore out the PC board to
use the circuit, which was a pair of 555's. The circuit board was
labeled "PANASONY". Now does that give you any idea of the credibility
of the company? Incredibly lame.
You want a circuit, do a search in critter ridder, which is the one I
posted a few years ago. I've been told that it doesn't do anything. Go
