The Good Neighbor Barker Breaker:
Emits sound at 90 decibels, which is equavilent to the noise of a power lawn mower.
The following is the manufacturer's write-up of the product
The Good Neighbor Barker Breaker is a tool designed to help you eliminate nuisance barking. It uses a high-pitched piercing tone to distract and dissuade your neighbor's dog from barking when outside.
The Good Neighbor Barker Breaker has a built-in microchip which operates the unit automatically from up to 50 feet away. When your neighbor's dog barks, the Good Neighbor Barker Breaker emits off a loud high-pitched sound. This piercing sound startles the dog to stop the nuisance barking. The highly-distracting piercing tone emitted by the Good Neighbor Barker Breaker is audible to people, but dogs find the tone to be 3-5 times more intense than do humans.
After emitting the tone for 5 seconds, the unit stops for 2 seconds and resets itself. Because of Good Neighbor Barker Breaker's specially-tuned microphone, extraneous sounds will not trigger it.
