I need a product recommendation. I have a scenario where I want to scare off wild animals with a kind of sound box and I want to ask people if they know products which could help me to do that.

Any idea which site I could use for that?


There is Software Recommendations and Hardware Recommendations (as in electronic devices, not your car, etc.), but there is no general or outdoor recommendation site.

Not sure, but it seems Home Improvements does allow recommendations to some extent; maybe you'll have some luck there. See or ask on their meta first if such questions are allowed.

Please do note that we are not a forum and we don't discuss things here, so if that is what you want: there is no Stack Exchange site suitable for that.

  • HW recs is definitely not restricted to computer hardware, it's just that happens to be one of the more popular topics. – Jason C May 9 '17 at 14:29
  • @JasonC Okay, is 'electronics in general' a better description? – Patrick Hofman May 9 '17 at 14:31
  • That's probably more along the lines of the trend there. That community was in a rather volatile stage of defining itself the last time I was there (see hardwarerecs.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/265/… and meta.hardwarerecs.stackexchange.com/q/50/140, for example), I don't know what they settled on. At the time they seemed to welcome non-computer/electronic questions as a refreshing change of pace. On the other hand regardless of their topic width most of the community is familiar with electronics so other topics might not even get answers. – Jason C May 9 '17 at 14:39

    Okay, for me that sounds as: ask on their meta and see what happens. – Patrick Hofman May 9 '17 at 14:41

I would try Electronics as I have had the best luck with this type of device. Personally, I would use an Arduino and a couple of relays.
