Management saw that the laser concept was safe, clean and quiet. They concluded that the technology was promising enough to warrant a trial.
Achieved bird repelling results
After a few months of using the Autonomic, Victoria Shopping Centre staff noticed that the number of birds perched at the facility was completely reduced – from over 100 to 0. The gulls didn’t become accustomed to the bird repelling laser, so the Autonomic’s effectiveness was long term. The staff was happy as they found the bird repellent system easy to use. Cleaning costs related to bird waste were eliminated and, when visitors realized the birds and their odiferous mess were gone, they returned to using the top level of the parking lot. Bird nuisance was no longer a problem!
Safety comes first
Victoria Shopping Centre made sure that the laser repellent is used safe. The Autonomic was programmed to run overnight only, when the car park was closed to access. Coverage was for the top deck of the car park and the power was controlled at the security desk.
