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: If enclosed out of weather, we recommend our Wi-Fi socket listed on this store as ACWIFI Socket for iPhone control (see details). Systems below have also been known to work fine. 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. Some 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.
