Frequently asked Questions
How do the products work?
How to use A-Repeller?
Plug the A-Repeller into a wall outlet and it's ready to go.
Where can A-Repeller MR be used?
It is suitable for use in the house, warehouse, garage, summer house and other indoor spaces to scare away mice and rats. A-Repellers with ElectroPulse are suitable for use in spaces where other electrical devices are constantly connected to the electrical network
How do I know A-Repeller is working?
When the indicator light(s) are on
or flashing, the repeller is working. Different types of A repellers work in different ways. If the repeller only has A-Guard ultrasound, the light will be on continuously to indicate that the product
works correctly. If the repeller has both A-Guard ultrasound and ElectroPulse, the green/blue light will be on continuously and the red light will alternate between blinking and steady light.
Do Silverline products affect other electrical devices?
No, they do not affect other electrical devices.
How long do MR50 repeller batteries last?
The batteries of the A-Repeller MR50 Battery last about 5-6 months.
How does ultrasound spread?
The advanced A-Guard ultrasound image spreads in open spaces. Due to its physical properties, ultrasound does not penetrate solid objects such as furniture, cabinets, walls or ceilings. Soft textiles, such as furniture upholstery, on the other hand, absorb sound. For this reason, the repeller must be positioned so that the ultrasound can spread as freely as possible.
Can A-Repeller products be harmful to animals?
No, the repellent does not harm animals. The ultrasound emitted by the repeller can
mice and rats to feel insecure in premises with repellants. This is why rodents leave the premises.
Does A-Repeller consume a lot of energy?
All Silverline products consume very little energy. MR30 - 1 W MR30 - 1 W MR50 - 0.5 W. MR80 DG2 - 1.8 W MR100 DG3 - 3.5 W MR130 DG4 - 4 W.
How does A-Repeller MR work?
All A-Repeller MR repellers emit variable and customizable A-Guard ultrasound. Rodents find it stressful and disturbing, so they avoid these spaces. Ultrasound creates an unpleasant environment for mice and rats in an open environment in an area of 20 to 130 square meters, depending on the model. Models Repel 60, MR80 DG2, MR100 DG3 and MR130 DG4 also include ElectroPulse. Electromagnetic pulses complement the effect of ultrasound. Their purpose is to prevent rodents from using cable runs as passageways.
Why does A-Repeller MR work on mice and rats?
Mice and rats communicate using ultrasound. Adapted
A-Guard ultrasound disrupts their natural way of communicating and
protective instinct. They find it stressful and disturbing, so they leave.
Does ultrasound prevent mice and rats from entering the house?
If there is enough food available in the house, the rodents may
despite the repellents, to enter, for example, the kitchen cupboard where the waste container is kept. Foraging is a powerful drive. Usually, however, ultrasound prevents rodents from entering the kitchen and scares them back outside.
What pests does A-Repeller work on?
A-Repeller MR effectively repels rodents such as mice and rats.
Ultrasound also affects pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and other rodents, so they should not be kept in the same or adjacent rooms as the repeller.
What is the general lifespan of a Silverline repellent?
Our products are designed to be used for long periods without problems. They are made of electronic components that do not have a limited lifetime. When you take the following points into account, you prevent the service life from being shortened. Use and store devices intended for indoor use only in dry areas. Do not expose products intended for indoor use to direct sunlight for long periods of time. Do not use the device with too much voltage.
How long is the warranty?
The product has a two-year warranty against possible manufacturing defects. The warranty therefore does not cover defects caused by using the device with too high a voltage. The warranty is voided if the device has been damaged or the buyer has changed it in any other way.
What does it mean that other electrical devices are constantly connected to the power grid? Isn't it enough that the device is connected to a wall outlet?
If all electrical devices are turned off, the device may not function properly. The repeller consumes only 0.5 to 4.0 watts depending on the model, so it does not create enough magnetic field in the mains for the pulses to work. Electricity network
the load must be at least 40 watts in order to have the intended effect
Are Silverline repellents sensitive to overvoltage?
They have electronics that are as sensitive to overvoltage as
computers and televisions too. They can be protected from overvoltage by setting the so-called
between the overvoltage protection eliminator and the wall outlet. The warranty is voided if the repeller has been exposed to overvoltage.
Why do the MR50 and MR80 DG2 repellers have two modes: Summer and Winter?
In Winter mode, the frequency range is adjusted to cause stress and
to scare away all rodents. In Summer mode, the frequency range is adapted to also repel crawling insects, such as spiders. They cause trouble
especially in summer. That's why the installation mode is called Summer.
What is the difference between the Summer and Winter modes of the MR50 and MR80 DG2 repellers?
Different modes use different frequency ranges. Summer mode emits ultrasound
on a random scale in a lower frequency range than the Winter mode.
Which mode should be selected in MR50 or MR80 DG2 repeller, if
the sound of the repeller bothers me?
If you select Winter mode, the repeller emits a high-pitched sound
in a frequency range that cannot be distinguished by the human ear.
Does the A-Repeller also work in winter at the summer house, when no other devices are connected to the electrical network?
If all electrical equipment is turned off, the electromagnetic pulses may not work. The repeller consumes only 3.5-4.0 watts depending on the model, so it does not create enough magnetic field in the mains for the pulses to work. However, ultrasound works as a repellant.
How does ElectroPulse work?
Why some A-Repellers also have
ElectroPulse/Double Guard function?
Electromagnetic ElectroPulse pulses complement the effect of ultrasound. Their purpose is to prevent rodents from using cable runs as passageways. The repellent is suitable for use in premises where
other electrical devices are constantly connected to the power grid. Ultrasound and
thanks to the combination of electromagnetic pulses, mice and rats feel uncomfortable and leave the premises.
How do the electromagnetic pulses emitted by the repeller work?
Mice often move from one floor and room to another in the walls
along cable runs. They also erode cable insulation, which can cause short circuits and fire hazards. Thanks to ElectroPulse, the electromagnetic field
the strength varies in the live wires of the house's electrical network. This affects mice and rats, causing them to avoid the electrical cables and thus the pulses.
Does the repeller create a pulsating magnetic field?
No. It affects the magnetic field that is formed by their cables
around which are connected to the energized units. These include e.g. lamps,
refrigerator and radiators that are connected to the house's electrical network and whose
the power is switched on.
Does the repeller need to be plugged into a specific outlet in order for it to pulse
affect the magnetic field?
When the repeller is connected to a wall outlet, that wall outlet is electrically connected to the house's electrical network. Because of this, the repellent affects the electrical network regardless of which socket it is connected to. However, the effect is weakened if the outlet of the repeller is far from other parts of the house's electrical network.
Why do electromagnetic pulses work on mice and rats?
ElectroPulse affects the strength of the electromagnetic field
varies. Electromagnetic field fluctuations affect mice and rats
learning ability and space perception and make them avoid electric cables and thus pulses.
Do the electromagnetic pulses spread throughout the apartment?
ElectroPulse spreads to live wires connected to the same exchange. If the apartment has two separate centers using electricity supply,
the best protection is obtained by using two repellents.
How big should the load be in the connected live device that creates the magnetic field so that the pulses then have an effect?
Automatically generated around all live power lines
magnetic field. The load must be at least 40 W in order to generate
the magnetic field is strong enough. In some electrical installations that have
used lead sheathed cables, the magnetic field is weaker.
Which product is right for me?
Which A-Repeller do you recommend for me?
The product is chosen according to how large spaces you want to protect, and how
how many floors the house has and how big the mouse problem is. We recommend that you start with a product that has both A-Guard and ElectroPulse functions and place it in the space with the worst problem on the ground floor. Also place at least one A-Repeller with A-Guard function in problem rooms on other floors, including the basement and attic. Choose the products according to the size of the rooms. Remember that sound does not pass through solid materials such as walls,
ceilings, floors and cabinets, and that soft textiles dampen sound
Why do some devices also have electromagnetic pulses? Isn't it
Electromagnetic ElectroPulse pulses complement the effect of ultrasound. Their purpose is to prevent rodents from using cable runs as passageways. Thanks to the combination of ultrasound and electromagnetic pulses
the mice feel uncomfortable and leave the premises. This enhances the repellency effect.
Should I choose MR80 DG2 or MR130 DG4?
These two repellents have a Double Guard function (A-Guard +
ElectroPulse), and are suitable as a basic unit. The powerful MR130 DG4 covers an open space of up to 130 square meters, and the MR80 DG2 covers an area of up to 80 square meters.
Choose the products according to the size of the rooms. Remember that sound does not pass through solid materials such as walls, ceilings, floors and cabinets, and that soft textiles dampen sound propagation.
Should I choose MR30 or MR50?
The powerful speaker of the Mr30 repeller covers an open space of up to 30 square meters, and the MR50 DG2 covers an area of up to 50 square meters. Select the products for the rooms
according to size. Remember that sound does not pass through solid materials such as walls, ceilings, floors and cabinets, and that soft textiles dampen sound propagation.
How are the products used?
I have a mouse problem, and
I want to use the repellent/A-Repeller. How did I act?
When the mice and rats have found a place where there is food
and heat, they won't go away easily, even if you install a repeller. The repellent irritates them, but their survival instinct is strong once they have found food, so they still don't run away from the sound. Then it's worth trying to solve the pest problem by using wounds temporarily. Once the rodents have been caught, it is important to remove the baited traps to prevent more pests from entering the area. It is also necessary to keep the premises clean, because mice/rats leave scent marks (greasy fur) which they follow and which creates a sense of security for them. When there are no traces, new pests do not
so probably dare to come in, especially if it is in use
How should A-Repeller be invested?
You should remember that ultrasound does not penetrate solid objects, such as
furniture, cabinet doors, walls and ceilings. Soft textiles such as
furniture upholstery and curtains, dampen the spread of sound. Hard surfaces block the passage of sound. Connect the repellent to a wall outlet located in as open a place as possible.
How should A-Repeller be placed?
Plug the repeller into a socket as low as possible
in an open place and in a room where mice are suspected of moving. Remember that high-frequency sound does not penetrate solid materials such as walls, ceilings, and floors, and that soft materials absorb sound.
How big of an area does A-Repeller MR cover?
A-Repellers have powerful speakers that cover an open space of up to 30-130 square meters. MR30 up to 30 m2 MR50 up to 50 m2 MR80 DG2
up to 80 m2 MR100 DG3 up to 100 m2 MR130 DG4 up to 130 m2.
How fast does A-Repeller give the desired result?
Normally, the change is noticeable immediately. Sometimes it takes longer. If there are already mice in the premises, they will activate after installing the repellent before going outside. You can also temporarily use traps to get rid of the old rodent population faster.
Can I use traditional shutters in the kitchen cabinet?
At the beginning of control or in areas where ultrasound does not reach, traditional wounds can be used as an additional measure. However, remember that trap baits attract mice.
How do I get rid of mice in the attic?
Mice in the attic are usually difficult to get rid of. In the attic
a lot of things are stored, such as cardboard boxes and clothes.
A-Guard ultrasound does not penetrate cardboard boxes or other solid objects. The same applies if there are mice in the attic in rooms with insulation. A-Repeller spreads ultrasound only in open spaces. Mice may therefore be in insulation, behind cardboard boxes or inside other items. In this case, traditional offenses should be used as an additional measure.
Why are there mouse droppings in the kitchen cupboard, even though there is in the kitchen
A waste container is often stored in the cupboard in question, which attracts mice.
Mice's drive to find food is very strong, and it is often stronger than the fear caused by external dangers. That's why it's important not to give mice a chance to find food. Food scraps or animal food must not be left in their reach. If you give mice a chance to find food, it will be more difficult to get rid of them in the future. Store, for example, dry food in closed containers and tight spaces. You can place the Mr30 repellent in the cabinet and block the openings in the pipe outlets with, for example, Silverline steel wool. If the A-Repeller is placed outside the cabinet, the ultrasound does not travel inside the cabinet.
In which premises can A-repeller be used?
Does the repellent work in all rooms?
The repellent works in all indoor spaces. Ultrasound works best if
the repeller is placed in an open space in such a way that there are no fixed objects such as furniture or doors as an obstacle to the spread of ultrasound. MR80 DG2, MR100 DG and 130 DG4 are suitable for use in rooms where the mains is constantly connected
connected to other electrical devices, because ElektroPulsen does not work otherwise. However, ultrasound always works.
Can A-Repeller MR be used outdoors on the foundation of the house?
The MR130 DG repeller is designed for such an environment because it has
Ip55 rating (dust and splash water resistant). Other A-Repeller MR repellants intended for installation in dry indoor spaces. We do not recommend these
installing repellers outside, as their sensitive electronics do not work
in humid environments.
Can the A-Repeller MR repellent be used in cold storage where there is
minus degrees in winter?
In normal winter temperatures, repellants work normally. Severe frost of over minus 20 degrees can affect the operation of repellants.
Can A-Repeller MR be used outdoors?
No, ultrasound requires the repeller to be placed in a room with
walls, ceiling and floor to make it work as designed. If I banished
placed in a location without these limiting surfaces, ultrasound is
too low and the planned effect will not be achieved.
How does A-Repeller MR affect people and pets?
Are Silverline products safe to use at home?
Silverline products are safe for children, cats, dogs,
for birds and fish. Does not cause interference in computers, television or
in similar ones. The ultrasound of A-Repeller for mice, rats and spiders affects pet rodents such as hamsters and guinea pigs, so they should not be kept together or next to each other
in rooms with repellants. Pets may react to KV 300, Ma50 and Ma200 repellants, but they are not harmful to them.
Can the human ear detect the sound emitted by A-Repellers?
The human ear does not normally distinguish the ultrasound emitted by repellers, but in some cases people can detect high frequencies.
