My pets new best friend!

Peace of Mind:
We have had our SmartFeeder for over a week now. During that time we went away for a weekend get away. We were able to take a short weekend get away without having to worry about feeding our furry friends.
We live in a home built around the "internet of things" from Smartthings, Phillips Hue, MyQ and many more. Petnets smart feeder takes the cake with reliability and performance. The design is impeccable, I was pleasantly surprised how strong and solid this device is. This is no, cheap plastic pet feeder. The setup was one of the simplest devices I have ever setup.
This price point is spot on! To me, the health and safety of my two cats is priceless. But this device is affordable enough for any pet owner and yet feels like the Mercedes of pet feeders.
Our cats are high maintenance and slightly skidish, let's just say Pavloves was right, as soon as they hear the first kibble drop they know it's time to eat and they come running. This device really helped control the portions of food.
I wish they made a dual bowl option for two pets. Other than that, if you are a gadget guy like me, YOU MUST buy this!!! Even if you don't have a pet.. Put candy in it or something just buy it because you will love it!

Great customer service
Posted by: justin223 from: on
My feeder had a charging problem after about a month. I called Petnet and they were really nice about sending me a whole new Petnet feeder. They didn't bug me with providing a receipt of purchase, they simply asked for my address, and solved the issue. The new feeder works great!

Great until it wasn't
Posted by: Oops from: on
Exactly what I was looking for to feed my 11 lb dachshund while away from home. I loved the ability to feed her 'snacks' several times daily to supplement her regular meals. I set the program to dispense 1/16 c 4x daily. Simple set up and programming, alerts on your iPhone, all wonderful. It worked perfect for 3 days then suddenly it started dispensing 1/2 c feelings at random unscheduled times. Good thing I was home as she started gobbling the food before I could stop her. She threw it up and I threw out what was still in the bowl. This happened two more times the most recently this morning at 5:49AM! I called customer service and left a message but have yet to receive a response. I've ordered another brand and plan to return this feeder today. I am truly disappointed as I wanted to love this feeder.

Works flawlessly, set up easy
Posted by: DivaL from: on
This Smart PetFeeder is perfect! Set up is very easy both the physical set up of the device and the "virtual" setup to Wifi (most of the time spent was unpacking the unit to be honest). Once I unpacked all pieces and assembled it following the easy instructions, the next step was to install the app on my iPhone and sync it to the feeder. I have poor internet service so the download of the app took awhile. I work in one state and live in another and as long as the feeder is connected to Wifi you can dispense food by manually sending a notification to dispense or you can set a schedule so the food is dispensed and in the quantity you pre-select. The app alerts you when you are running low on food and also alerts you when you have filled up the dispenser. Only problem is if you are located in a place with a poor connection, the app will not load and you cannot dispense food remotely. The device also has a manual feed button in the event you are in the house and don't want to use the app to dispense food. Also, the device has to remain plugged in at all times. In the event of a power outage however, it has a backup battery installed that will kick-in for several hours. I truly think this was a worthy purchase especially for a busy professional family always on the go.

Awesome Cat Feeder

The feeder is an amazing purchase for any cat lover. It is sleek and doesn't look out of place. It was easy to set-up and haven't had any problems. Highly recommended.

Love this Gadget!
Posted by: deelite926 from: Pittsburgh, PA on
We bought petnet almost a year ago. At first there were a few glitches. Cust service helped tremendously. Every once in a while their server had a blip - BUT BUT BUT - we havent had any issues since.. and we purchased basically when this product was a start-up -- so we expected these issues. My now husband was really bad a keeping his dog on feeding schedule, and he and I were out alot when we we were dating..so the poor dog didnt get his dinner at a regular time all the time.. so i saw this and thought - here is our solution! - he gets a 1.5 cups in the morning - found out that 1 manually measured cup is about 1.5 cups for this feeder to feed him the proper amount.. at dinner he gets normally 2 cups - so we have it set 7pm, for 1.5 cups and at 7:02 1.5 cups which equals his 2 manually measured cups. This is awesome bc it slows him down eating, and he gets to enjoy his meal instead of scarfing it down and looking for more. He runs to the feeder when he hears it start to dispense. Only trouble I have is reminding the hubby to refill - about every 6 days, but the app does tell you when its running low - but ive found that isnt always consistent, dont know why -- but doesnt matter, we still check the hopper every few days and refill - honestly, BEST purchase for our dog to date. I would highly recommend to everyone - and i have! people are in awe when they come to our house!

Finally a review for a big dog
Posted by: Hcchtz from: on
1) had to tilt the feeder forward to allow all the food to flow into the bowl BUT
2) my dog is 90lb large breed so his 1cup of food and size of food is why it doesn't all fit freely
3) there is no indicator when food is dispenses but my dog hears it hitting the bowl from anywhere in the house
4) VERY large food database in Petnet system to calibrate food size and give analysis of food ingredient
I bought this feeder because my dog is prone to stomach issues and needs 3 meals a day. That has never been possible with my schedule but has worked great with petnet. I push feed his meal in the mornings and have 2 others set for the rest of the day.
Common complaint in other review was their app and lack of computer access. I've had no problems and find the app VERY user friendly. I use this feeder to supplement a meal in the day and don't "rely" on it to feed my dog since I am here morning and night. I have been very pleased with this purchase despite hesitating to buy!
