My cabin is 110-miles from the nearest human and about 30-miles south of the arctic circle near longitude 114 west in Canada.
I have a bear fence with a car battery and a 15-watt solar panel. That's enough to keep the fencer working, except during the shortest days of the year (say, December and January) when the fencer probably draws more juice than the panel can replace.
We can't safely access the cabin (fly-in only) after mid-September, since float season comes to an end at that time and the ice is not safe for a ski-plane until December. Unfortunately, it's just too risky (cold and dark) to fly down there in December to turn off the system.
I'd sure like to have a timer that would automatically shut down the fence from December 1 to April 1. In this neck of the woods the bears will be snoring at that time.
Has anyone heard of such a device? My electric fence supplier says they don't exist.
