POWER SWITCH (INT/EXT. SPKR)
Prepare for Successful Bird Control
Digital Bird Repeller
The power switch enables the unit to operate. Slide the switch to the INT/EXT. SPKR (ON) posi­tion to start the unit. This will operate the unit, and generate sound out of the unit AND out of an optional extension speaker at the same time. If you wish to operate ONLY a remote extension speaker (optional), then move the switch to the EXT. SPKR ONLY position.
If you turn the unit OFF , be sure to leave it off for about 30 seconds before turning it back on to allow the electronics to properly reset. To fully discon­nect the unit, unplug the power adapter from the electrical outlet or disconnect the battery cable from the 12-volt battery.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Bird-X, Inc. has been recognized worldwide as the bird control x-perts for 40 years. We have become experts through extensive experience and research. As a result, we are happy to analyze problems and make reommendations based on each customer’s specific situation and needs. In addition, we provide the following recommendations for greatest success, even before activating the repeller.
Remove inducements. Clean the area of all evidence of birds: nests, fledglings, droppings, dead birds, and the residential scent. Because birds and their droppings can carry many diseases, use extreme caution when removing them. Do not breathe or come into direct contact with them. If you have questions about how to do this safely, consult an expert. (Adult birds are likely to return to their young in order to protect them or to assist them in leaving the area.) Remove food spillage, garbage, nesting material and other appealing items.
Survey the birds to determine flight and time patterns, entries and exits, and nesting, feeding and roosting habits. This will suggest the unit placement, speaker direction and time of operation you should choose. Make educated guesses as to where the birds will go when they are repelled from their current infestation, and consider additional units to cover these alternative areas.
Maintain a clean and changing environment. Periodically clean the area of nests and droppings, relocate or reposition the unit, vary the output, or turn off the unit for a short time.
Install early, before “bird season” begins, as it is easier to keep the birds away than to rout them out once they have established a living pattern.
Use products synergistically. Two or more different kinds of devices (this repeller plus a visual scare product and/or a roost inhibiting device) will produce a synergistic effect -- i.e., in combination, the products will yield much greater effectiveness than the one alone. Contact us for information on “companion” products.

INSTALLATION
Important safety-related information:
a)  Do not install the device during rain or snow conditions.
b)    Installation shall be made in such a way that a power supply and the internal part of the control unit never be subjected to water or snow.
c)  Note that the power supply is intended for dry location use only.
1) Point th e unit toward the bird inf estation. Expect a maximu m coverage area of appr oximately 1 acre in a lo ng dispersion pat­ tern. Set the unit on a flat sur face or mount it to a w ooden post using the mo unting bracket and screws (included).
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
Unit is on, but no sound is heard
• Check volume settings
• Check time of operation settings.
• Check that at least one bird is selected to play.
Unit is on, but plays the
same bird over and over,
regardless of settings
• Reset the unit by turning it off for 30 seconds and then back on.
Unit is not operating
properly in the DAY or NIGHT mode
• Double check Mode switch settings
• Make sure photocell is not obstructed.
• Make sure the photocell is not affected by bright lights in either the front or the back of the unit.
Unit does not function
properly when connected
to a 12 volt battery
• Check battery condition
• Turn power switch on the unit to the OFF position. Reconnect the battery, wait 30 seconds, then switch the unit back on
2)     Plug on e end of the AC adapter into the POWER jack (located on the back of the unit). Plug the adapter into any standard electrical outlet. An optional bat­ tery cable may be used to connect the control unit to a 12-volt battery. If this is done, first connect the black battery clip to the negative terminal on the battery and then connect the red battery clip to the positive terminal. Both the connection to the electri­ cal outlet (or battery) and the connection of the power cable inside the control unit must be protected from dripping or splashing water. Do not set an object filled with liquids on the control unit.
3)     Set the DIP switches located on the front metal face­ plate of the unit, (see Switch Array #1 and Switch Array #2 ) to the desired settings. See the section “Programming your BirdXPeller PRO” for specific programming information.
4)     Turn the volume switch to LOW (Minimum).

5)  Turn the power switch (located in the upper right hand corner of the faceplate) to INT/EXT. SPKR (ON position). (NOTE: The unit may take a couple of seconds before starting).
6)    Adjust the volume to the desired level.
7)    After turning the unit OFF, be certain to wait AT LEAST 60 SECONDS before turning it back on.
8)    Close the cover and latch shut. Ensure that the cover is properly latched closed and do not open the cover during rain or other conditions that would expose the inside of the control unit to water.
PROGRAMMING YOUR BIRDXPELLER

in the switch array (FIG. 6) . The unit will randomly play the selected recordings in non-sequential order when operating in Random Mode. When the unit is not operating in the Random Mode, the unit will play the selected recordings in a sequential order. The Random Mode is recommended to keep birds from adapting to a preset pattern of sounds. To operate the unit in Random Mode, set switch 5 as follows:

Switches (1-8) in the switch array (FIG. 4) . The unit will delay a number of seconds or minutes between recorded sounds when the unit is set to one of the various Time-Off Modes. The SHORT setting is appropriate for testing, but is NOT recommended for long-term success. Please note that the unit will play all of the selected recordings (either sequentially or non-sequentially, depending on the Random Mode), then it will go into a delay. The time the unit stays off depends on the Time-Off and the Random Mode Settings. If the unit is operating in Random Mode, the unit will delay anywhere from the minimum value to the maxi­mum value for that Time-Off setting. If the unit is not in Random Mode, it will delay only the minimum value.
To set the Time-Off period (or delay interval), use the following settings on switches 1 and 2 in the Mode Function Settings.

The unit has a volume control dial on the front panel of the unit. Turning the dial toward LOW will reduce sound output and rotating the dial toward HIGH will increase sound output.
CAUTION: Take care when turning the dial since the unit may be in an inactive state when the dial is rotated. It could then reactivate at a very high level of sound which could be painful to your ears.
