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.

System we tested and recommend:
The TP-LINK® HS100 Smart Wi-Fi Plug is perfect to control your Super Feeder® remotely. 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 time you want to feed your pet. Make sure you program "on" and "off" time! i.e.: "on" program" at 8:00 AM and "off" program at 8:02 AM for each time of day you want to feed your pet, up to 15 times per day. Also select all or particular 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 can do that from anywhere, but make sure you have enabled remote control. You may install several Wi-Fi Plugs and feeders in different places within range of your local Wi-Fi router. Note: The feeder must have been powered down for at least 1-2 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 can be a great addition. Many ways to operate your Super Feeder®. This is what makes it so unique!
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.
