How much does an Invisible Fence system cost and how can I purchase one?
Every dog, family and property is unique. Since each part of the Invisible Fence system is customized, we cannot quote an accurate price without evaluating your needs.

Will an automatic sprinkler system use more water than I'm currently using?
No. In fact, it will conserve water. The system's controller and rain sensor will be set so you receive only the amount of water you need. You will not over-water or under-water your lawn with an automatic sprinkler system.

Does having a sprinkler system really save time?
Yes. You won't have to spend another minute of your valuable leisure time watering the lawn. Whether you are home or away your system will do the watering for you!

Will an automatic sprinkler system water as well as I can water by hand?
It will do a much better job because a professionally designed system will deliver exactly the right amount of water to individual lawn and garden areas.

We generally get 40 or more inches of rainfall a year. Do we really need a sprinkler system?
If it rained at your house every three days the same exact amount each time you probably would not need a sprinkler system. But nature does not work that way, and the only way to ensure healthy, lush growth is to make certain your lawn and plants receive a regularly timed, evenly measured amount of water. In the dry season when there is little or no rain, your yard can suffer damage after just a few days without water.

Can I save money by installing my own system?
No! In fact, it could cost you more money in the long run.

A professional irrigation contractor will design and install the most cost-effective and energy-efficient system possible. You can be certain that he will select the appropriate equipment for the job, while streamlining the maintenance required to keep your landscaping in top shape. He will pay special attention to such important factors as sprinkler patterns (it is important to overlap the patterns so that the outer edges receive sufficient water for healthy growth) and backflow prevention (which is necessary to protect your drinking water supply).

And because your contractor is familiar with local plumbing and electrical codes, you won't have to worry about costly mistakes in wiring or pipe installation. He can do the job faster, with less disruption to existing landscaping, and will guarantee his work.

Will I have difficulty operating this system?
Your Greenway Services Specialist will explain to you how your controller works and how the watering times have been set. Then if necessary, the watering times can be adjusted by following the instructions on the inside of the controller cabinet. And that is it, the system does the rest for you.

Does the correction hurt the dog?
The correction from a Computer Collar may be uncomfortable and startling to your dog, but it will not hurt him. Many dogs only feel the correction once or twice and don't challenge the system afterwards.
Back to Top
What does the correction feel like?
The correction from a Computer Collar is similar to the sensation you feel when you walk across a carpet and touch a metal doorknob. The sensation momentarily surprises you and gets your attention.

What is an Invisible Fence electronic pet containment system?
It's a method of keeping your pet on your property using behavioral training and sophisticated electronics.

Does the Invisible Fence system interfere with radios, TVs, or garage door openers?
The Invisible Fence transmitter is FCC Certified and is designed not to cause interference with other electronic devices.

Does Invisible Fence interfere with pacemakers?

We have never received a complaint indicating any of our products interfere or cause harm to pacemakers or their hosts. Our system works by radio carrier frequency -- either 7.5 kilohertz or 10.8 kilohertz. We utilize 30-hertz modulation frequency.

As we are not privy to the electronic makeup of the device, we cannot give you a definitive answer. To be safe, we suggest you contact the pacemaker's manufacturer. The manufacturer knows their product intimately and is best suited to address your interference concerns.

Will a power failure affect the Invisible Fence system?
When the power is out, your Invisible Fence system will continue to operate with the optional battery back-up. A battery back-up that keeps your system operating in the event of a power outage is available through your local Invisible Fence professional.

8. Will the Invisible Fence system work for other animals besides dogs and cats?
We have reports of customers who have used Invisible Fence products on farm animals (cows, sheep, pigs, etc.) with success. However, Invisible Fence products are intended for domestic dogs and cats, and we have only developed training protocols for these pets.
