I have installed my feeder inside a tack room in my barn with the food being delivered twice a day via 2" PVC. I would like to commend your company on both quality service and equipment. The products came neatly packaged and using the video for both the feeder and the digital timer I was able to program the timer and set up and calibrate the feeder. It works perfectly!!! I want to praise you and your family for doing things right, working together in a harmonious manner to deliver this quality product to the consumer.
Made in USA for 23+ years! Many modes of operation, indoor or outdoor applications and ease of maintenance and repairs.

IMPORTANT NOTE: IF PLANNING ON INSTALLING THIS FEEDER OUTDOORS, MAKE SURE YOU ADEQUATELY PROTECT AT LEAST THE CHUTE AREA WHERE THE FOOD COMES OUT (ALL BOXED-IN IS BEST) AND YOU KEEP THE SUPPLIED TIMER/POWER SUPPLY INDOORS OR SHELTERED OUT OF THE WEATHER. IF YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DO THAT, YOU SHOULD CONSIDER PURCHASING AN OUTDOOR POWER SUPPLY AND TIMER SUPPLIED IN COMBO 23 OR 23A.

NOTE: Small 1/4" round (spherical) kibbles like offered by Science Diet or other brands are recommended for very best performance. Please be aware that the feeder does not “count’ kibbles, but tests have shown that an overall accuracy of +/- .1 to .2 ounce from one portion to another is possible with recommended kibbles. Most other kibbles will work well up to 5/8" diameter, but with so many shapes/sizes of kibbles on the market, it is impossible to predict exact results as far as exact accuracy is concerned. Although performance is guaranteed with recommended food as described, please be advised that due to variance of kibble sizes and shapes, 100% portion accuracy simply cannot be guaranteed for all feed cycles. That would apply to any feeder feeding oddly shaped kibbles.
NOTE: USING A NAME BRAND LIKE "SCIENCE DIET" IS ONLY A BRAND EXAMPLE.

How to use the feeder with a regular external timer: Basically any plug-in timer like a lamp timer can be used. Just follow directions included in feeder's manual.
OVERALL SIZE: CSF-3XL Feeder overall size (space needed): 12 x 3 x 22 inches tall
How to use feeder with a home automation system: You can plug the supplied power adapter into a 120V module controlled by your system. You then turn the module on for a couple of minutes with your system, which in turn triggers and powers the feeder. The feeder runs only for time in seconds you adjusted the feeder to give you the portion you want and then stops. When you turn the power off for a couple of minutes, the feeder resets itself and is once again ready to be triggered at the next programmed time. If your system has 12 to 24 volts output ac or dc, you can do away with the feeder's own power adapter and hook directly to the feeder. You could also control the feeder's run time entirely with your external system by setting the feeder's feed time controller to its maximum setting of 70 seconds. NOTE: Systems below have been known to work fine. Systems by Leviton may not work properly due to the fact that their systems such as Z-Wave module, Z-Wave receptacle and dimming modules may not completely turn off and thus not work with the Super Feeder. Iris brand "smart outlet" in-wall has been reported to work with smart phone. Z-Wave Smart Outlet the "Quirkey+GE Outlink Smart Outlet systems will work.
