How do I unbox and assemble my SmartFeeder?

The SmartFeeder requires very little assembly to get set up. To ensure a successful setup, please follow these steps:

 

SmartFeeder (2nd generation)

  • Open the Food Container Lid and remove the following contents:
    • User Manual
    • Metal Tray insert
    • Bowl
    • Micro USB cord and Adapter
    • Food Container Insert
  • Pull the feeding tray out so that it lays flat, and carefully remove the blue sticker
  • Slide the plastic bowl onto the tray until it locks in place
  • Place the metal tray insert inside the bowl
  • Turn the SmartFeeder on from the power switch located in the back of the Feeder Base

Once you have completed your Wi-Fi set up, fill the Food Container with dry kibble. Make sure to leave about 1 or 2 inches of room between the food level and top of the Food Container, so that the lid will close. Dispense a ¼ cup feed to calibrate the feeder. Please note that some kibble may fall into the bowl while the SmartFeeder is being primed.
