Motion sensor for animals

My business owner use to install these for lake front properties. He called them Goose B Gone. In which he wired 2 motion sensors in line near the beach ( Much like a garage sensor - they need to be in line) and when the goose crossed the line a few Maxi-Paw Sprinkler heads would shoot up to scare the geese away. He had it wired into the VT/hotpost of the controller for the valve. When the sensor got tripped it activated the valve
good to know it has been done. personally I don't think it will work to keep deer and rabbits away though, but maybe we will try this for the home owner.

I have this same question. There has to be a somewhat easy way to wire a motion sensor to an existing valve.
