Built upon the Zigbee 3.0 protocol, the Smart Pet Feeder C1 enables users to extend the connected home experiences to pet care. Scheduled feeding plans guarantee the timely dispensing of pet food, and alternatively pet owners can feed the pets remotely on the mobile phones when they’re out of town. Major voice assistants including Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri can be used by creating a pet feeding scene on Aqara Home, so users can ask their favorite assistant to feed the pet from any corner at home, which is particularly helpful for pet owners with limited mobility.
The Pet Feeder C1 has a 4-liter food tank which holds around 1.7 kilograms (3.7 pounds) of typical pet food, and it is ideal for cats and smaller dogs. It keeps up to one month of pet food for a 4-kilogram cat, and its food tank design allows the regular change of desiccant so that pet food stays dry and fresh.
The feeder is powered by a typical USB-A port and supports an optional D-type (LR20) battery as a power backup, so it can dispense pet food even when the electricity is cut off. Moreover, the feeding schedules are local, which means that preset schedules remain functional regardless that the Internet connection or the smart home hub goes down.
For additional capabilities, the feeder can be connected with an indoor camera. The dispensing of food can trigger the camera to start recording so owners can keep an eye on their pets eating habits remotely.
