PetSafe Smart Feed Automatic Pet Feeder
As responsible pet parents, its always stressful when life steps in and throws your schedule a great big curveball. From line-ups at the grocery store to transit delays and of course that inevitable rush hour traffic… it seems that predicting our arrival time home has become a bit of a crapshoot. I know you’re nodding your head in agreement.
And while it’s easy for us to grab something quick to eat on the go, our best buddies are stuck waiting patiently at home for someone to come and feed them. It’s stressful for us as we conjure images of our hungry, sad-looking pet sitting beside an empty food bowl. It’s also stressful for them because you’ve just ruined was has always been the highlight of their day – mealtime. But I have news for you: it doesn’t have to be this way.
The PetSafe Smart Feed Automatic Pet Feeder allows you to deliver din-din to your hungry pet remotely. Yes, remotely. Waiting for a bus? No problem. Stuck at the gas pumps? Meh! Your dog or cat is happily noshing down on dinner and enjoying every last morsel.
You see, this automatic food bowl uses a free app that can be downloaded to any smartphone or mobile device including an Apple iPhone or iPod device iOS 9.0 or later or a compatible Android smartphone 6.0 or later. Just connect the feeder unit to your home WiFi and you’re in business.
No surprise, it was designed by pet parents like you and me who understand the importance of keeping our pets on a routine. Especially when they’re older, ill or on a strict diet. With this automatic feeder, you can schedule the delivery of dry or semi-moist food from anywhere and for any time of the day or night.
More than one pet parent in the household? Each PetSafe programmable food dispenser can be activated by more than one smartphone. And if you’re the sole human in a household with multiple pets that don’t like to share food bowls, you have the ability to control multiple feeders from your one phone.
The unit holds a whopping 24 cups of food so you don’t have to worry about running out or refilling each day. And because it has been designed with an eye toward almost any style, size or shape of kibble, you don’t have to worry about it jamming.
Better still, it can dispense meals up to 12 times a day (yes!) in customized portions that range from a snack of 1/8th cup to a full meal for big dogs of 4 cups – so it’s the perfect solution to meeting any pet’s dietary requirements. In fact, it also offers a “Slow Feed” setting that dispenses small amounts every 15 minutes for those who live with gobblers (yes, we mean Labrador retrievers).
And if you think your pet may be feeling peckish throughout the day, you can instantly dispense a quick meal through the handy “Feed Now” option.
What’s particularly great about this automatic food dispenser is that you can program it to alert you when your pet has finished eating (particularly important for monitoring sick or older animals). It will also let you know when the feeder is starting to get low and even if the WiFi connection has been lost. All important features!
Because life is busy, the lid and food hopper portion of the PetSafe Smart Feed Automatic Pet Feeder are dishwasher-safe for easy clean-up and continually sanitary storage of your pet’s kibble. Similarly, the handy stainless-steel food bowl (included) can be tossed into the dishwasher and it even comes with a removable holder that prevents tipping and moving when hungry pets dig in.
