Systems we tested and recommend:
HausBell Wi-Fi Smart Outlet Model: SM-PW701U, Gosund Smart Socket

Available on our store:
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
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:
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.
Iris brand smart outlet:
NOTE: 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. Any
socket must not bleed any voltage while in off mode.
