I bought this to feed my koi in a very small pond when I am on vacation. There are several pages of directions, some were not needed for my product. I was sent links and watched a video and after that sort of just figured it out myself. It works fine, and I was able to adjust the feeder to the small amount of pellets I need for the feeding. I have only had it for a few days but it is a good product and would recommend it. Would give it 5 stars if I had it for a long time, but gave it 4 since I have only had it running for a few days.
Mount this Koi feeder to a piece of 2x4 hung in the air using a metal or plastic pole (parts for mounting examples shown are not supplied) or wood post or a vertical 2x4 in a bucket filled with concrete and placed in the water. The L shaped metal bracket can also be attached to a pipe. Unlike some other fish feeders, the Super Feeder does not use a distribution vibrating apparatus causing food to pack and/or turn to powder. This feeder can be electronically adjusted to feed fish sticks/pellets from a very small portion to a cup or more with multiple cycles. This 1 3/4 Quart size Super Feeder Combo Deal includes: Outdoor power supply kit, weatherproof 120V ACDT-35 outdoor digital timer (keeps programs and time when disconnected) to trigger and power the feeder up to 20 times daily or certain days of the week all year long! This KSF-2 Super Feeder come with two tough polycarbonate clear extensions for total capacity of about 1.5 lb. of dry fish food, a polycarbonate protective weatherproofing chute cover over the chute opening and all mounting hardware including a black powder-coated metal "L" shaped mounting bracket and two metal straps. Included with the power supply kit: One 6' short cord with a special screw-type sealed connector at one end to fit the power supply's output and a jack plug at the other end to fit the Super Feeder's side input jack (handy for calibrating feeder portion indoors before outdoor mounting). One long 30' long wire is also included to reach the Super Feeder with a special screw-type sealed connector at one end to fit the power supply's output and metal spade connectors at the other end to fit the feeder's auxiliary input terminals underneath its floor. As an added bonus if ever needed to use your own wire, a coaxial plug-to-wire adapter is included with this kit. Power supply: Input 110-120Vac 60Hz--Output 12Vac. Timer: Input/ouput: 120Vac 60Hz USA style plugs only-this particular combo is not battery operated. THIS FEEDER WILL REQUIRE MOUNTING ABILITY AND PROPER PROTECTION (info will be provided with your order). When mounting this feeder outdoors, as a minimum, the chute cover area, dispenser and wire, should be adequately protected from wild animals. Overall size of feeder as shown: 7 1/4" x 3 1/2" x 11 3/4"" tall. Additional clear extensions or even a 1.5 gallon hopper is available for more capacity.
If a 120V power source is not available, you may even use any of our 6-24V timers listed here to use your own low voltage power source (some wiring required).

How to use feeder with a home automation system:
Note: Many Wi-Fi systems offered on the market today are perpetually vulnerable to perpetual changes and updates that can quickly render some products unusable. In regards to other Wi-Fi switches on the market, some may not work if the socket does not turn off completely (some do and some may not), meaning that any residual power coming out of it during its off time will prevent the feeder from resetting itself between programmed feed cycles.
