The Automatic Pet Feeder is awesome! I love how convenient it is! It allows me to focus on those things that are important throughout the day while keeping my fur ball fed at all times. I work in ministry and am a full time seminary student with a family and a 9-5 job and the automatic pet feeder makes feeding a breeze! Thank you!
I LOVE this automatic feeder! It was easy to setup and I love having the ability to feed my cats from my phone. I set it up so that the kibbles spill onto my cats puzzle instead of into the included bowl. This way both of my cats have time to get to it and can't scarf down the kibbles. I had previously been using a manual timer for my cats' 5am feeding that I would have to reset each night. This is much easier because I can just set it and forget it until I eventually need to add more kibbles to the filler. I feed my cats wet food for their main meals but it is nice having peace of mind that if I am ever out and late for their feeding times or caught up in something I can easily press the button and they will be able to eat.
I enjoy the convenience of being able to feed my cats with just a few taps on my phone. The app seems pretty legit other than not being able to figure out how to dispense portion sizes. Also, the option to record a message for your pet is nice, too!I would have given the PETLIBRO Automatic Cat Feeder 5 Stars had the directions been better. I still can't figure out portion size which is a problem...All-in-all a great product and my cats adjusted to it instantly. I would buy it again and highly recommend it.
I have a 20lb, very food motivated man and so far (fingers crossed) he has not been able to penetrate the feeder. He has hit the feed button once (but you can lock the button by holding it for 6 second or until the red light comes on). He also pull the metal liner out but not a huge deal since the plastic bowl stays in place.I will say the app is not intuitive. I also would have liked a video on set up but couldn't find one online. Make sure you’re not just connected to 2.4g BUT ALSO connected to Bluetooth. I spent way too long trying to connect it not realizing my Bluetooth wasn't turned on (my bad).ALSOTo schedule feeding times you can hit every day of the week, I originally was trying to select each individual day and then ran out of feeding slots which I was frustrated with until I figured out how to schedule daily times.So far I'm happy with this product I love the customization of portion sizes and how often you can schedule feeding times. I'm hoping to get my chunky boy more used to free feeding by feeding him just a little bit multiple times through out the day.Worth the initial frustration with the app!
We used to have problems with our cat over eating, and vomiting, so we bought the prior version. It has worked very well, is reliable, and solved that problem. I like that it plugs in for long term power, but also has battery back up. The voice recording feature has trained our cat to know when the food is coming, and is a nice customization.Recently, when we needed a second unit for our vacation home, I was planning to buy the same one again. But I was happy to notice this model that has smart phone/app integration. I definitely think that the upgrade is worth it. If I had any criticism of the original unit, is that the programming was a bit annoying. In the other model we have, you have to use a small LCD screen and a few buttons to cycle through the controls, like a old timex watch. I like having the set up on phone, and also being able to give extra feedings from my phone. The company did offer 20$ gift card to write a review, but the above is my honest opinion and recommendation
