Motorized Deer Deterrent

This model of our deer deterrent has been on the job for more than a week now. A single cell D battery propels the circular motion of the round metal shell sending it clinking against the dangling metal tubing. Definitely no deer have been nibbling on our hostas! The motor & battery are mounted underneath a protective cover that is attached to a wood bracket & mounted to a regular fence post.

Does this have a motion sensor, a timer??? Does it move & chime all the time?

Jan --- No motion sensor or timer, since these deterrents tend to cover quite a lot of area and deer can come out at any time of the day or night. In our own garden at the moment, we have our deterrents off when there's no deer pressure, then we turn them on for a few weeks if a deer shows up. That does help prevent the acclimation problem.
