Free shipping on all Super Feeders! Although not shown in the primary picture, the special polycarbonate chute cover comes installed. This automatic cat Super Feeder® features a special dishwasher-safe bowl made with a special high-grade kitchenware material known as SAN by Kibisan® and especially designed to spread kibbles to the outer edge for better food access to pets and away from the feeder's chute cover. This popular compact combo includes a Super Feeder weekly ACDT-20 DIGITAL TIMER which will keep time and programs for months when disconnected. It can be programmed to trigger your Super Feeder up to 8 times per day, group of days or all days of the week/year. If desired, you will also be able to program some "in-between snacks with just a few kibbles by programming the timer for just a few seconds of run time between main meals or even entirely control different portions throughout the day, overriding the feeder's own portion controller. Using associated accessories, you could control the feeder with most home automation/Wi-Fi systems. This feeder also comes with a heavy-duty black ABS stand with rubber feet and a new black powder-coated mounting bracket. Combo package includes: CSF-3 Cat/Small Animal Super Feeder, two practically indestructible polycarbonate clear extensions to make the total feeder capacity slightly over a quart (about 1.5 lb of food), which could be increased later with extra clear 2-cup extensions or with a 1.5 gallon (28 cups-5 lb) hopper optionally available from us, a low voltage power supply with 6' cord, and detailed instructions (even a video is available for assembly, timer and operation). Minimal assembly is required with just a supplied screwdriver. Voltage required: Power supply (supplied) 110-240VAC 50-60Hz 12VDC output, Timer 120V 60Hz-USA style plugs only-not battery operated.
Original CSF-3 Super Feeder serviceable for years to come, made in USA and sold by Super-Feed for over 26 years! All parts readily available and easy to replace if ever needed. For pets that may vomit if eating too much, adjust it from very tiny snacks (just very few kibbles many times per day instead of a slow feed feeder) to larger portions up to 8 times per day with the supplied digital timer. Some Wi-Fi/automation/voice command systems may also be used. See example how Google works for a customer using voice activation.
NOTE ABOUT TIMER: We also offer the ACDT-19 digital timer which will provide up to 20 meals per day without in-between main meal snacks option available using the included ACDT-20 digital timer with seconds function. Just ask to switch timer from ACDT-20 to ACDT-19 in comments section of order.

Compact: CSF-3 Feeder overall size mounted (space needed): 10 x 11 x 15 inches tall This feeder with stand is recommended for indoor use only. The stand should not be used outdoors. Although not shown in the primary picture, if you have a crafty "locksmith" cat when it comes to trying to get to the food, the special polycarbonate chute cover comes installed.
NOTE: Small 1/4" round (spherical) kibbles like offered by Science Diet or other brands are recommended for best portion accuracy, but most other kibbles will work fine up to 5/8" diameter with perhaps a slightly reduced portion accuracy. Please be aware that the feeder will not “count’ kibbles, but tests have shown that an overall portion accuracy of +/- 0.1 to 0.2 ounce from one portion to another is possible. 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 of course apply to any feeder other than one with pre-filled compartments.
NOTE: USING A NAME BRAND LIKE "SCIENCE DIET" IS ONLY A BRAND EXAMPLE.

How to operate the Super Feeder® with a cell phone, iPad, Android device or home automation system with with voice command like Alexa or other type like Google :
First, be sure to adjust your super feeder's desired portion size by plugging the power supply into a power outlet and adjusting the feed duration controller with the little supplied plastic screwdriver as explained in your feeder's manual or video. Then plug the power supply into the Smart Plug after you have installed it just like you would a lamp.
System we tested and recommend:
The TP-LINK HS100 Smart Wi-Fi Plug is perfect to control your Super Feeder® remotely for up to 15 meals/snacks per day. It is one of the easiest we tested to install and use. Just follow directions included with the Smart Wi-Fi Plug. All you will need to do once installed is program suggested 2 minutes of "on" time for each feed cycle time of day you want. Make sure you program "on" and "off" time, i.e. 8:00 AM and off at 8:02 AM for each time of day you want to feed your pet. Also select all or certain days of the week you want to trigger your Super Feeder® to feed your pet. The feeder runs only for time in seconds you previously adjusted the feeder to give you the portion needed and then stops. You may of course trigger your Super Feeder® anytime by remotely turning it on for a few seconds and turning it back off yourself from your device. You may install and operate several Wi-Fi Plugs and feeders simultaneously in different places within range of local Wi-Fi. Note: The feeder must have been powered down for at least 2 minutes between feed cycles to assure it triggers again. If it has not been off long enough like repeatedly turning it on and off, the feeder will not work, which is normal. You could also control the Super Feeder® by voice command using this TP-LINK Smart Plug compatible with Amazon Alexa®. The TP-Link Camera could be a great addition. Many ways to operate your Super Feeder®. This is what makes it so unique!
A great companion to this Super Feeder combo would be adding the Kasa KC120 Cam 1080p Smart Home Security Camera by TP-Link. Unlike so many other built-in cheap camera feeders, that separate day/night camera is perfect because you can place it where you want and vary the field of vision and close-up on whatever you want as well as being able to record, speak and listen to your pet. Makes a great pet monitoring system!
(These systems not included)
Other systems recommended by past customers:
For Wi-Fi control, the Wemo Wi-Fi switches by Belkin have been used successfully. Various systems that are currently being used are available from smarthome.com Note: Some systems offered on the market today suffer from perpetual changes and updates rendering some systems unusable if not compatible with certain Wi-Fi systems. Some Wi-Fi switches on the market may not work if the socket does not turn off completely (some do and some may not like used for dimming lights), meaning that any residual power coming out of it during its off time will prevent the feeder from resetting itself between programmed feed cycles and will prevent it from triggering.
Using various timers:
You still retain the option to use just about any type of common lamp timer to operate your Super Feeder®. Anything that will turn on a lamp or appliance will trigger and operate the Super Feeder®.
