Essential Info

Worry about your pets while you're away? Now you can keep an eye on them while away with the power of Ergo Pet Feeders and INSTEON home control technology. Our pet feeding & viewing kit allows you to both feed your pets & view them from a computer anywhere in the world. You can also automatically have images of your pets at feeding time emailed to you on at scheduled times. Set-up is a snap and kits come with everything you need.

NOTE: To feed pets from a remote location, you must already have the ability to access your home computer remotely (Internet and computer up and running, remote desktop, or similar remote access application).

    Setting Up Your Kit
    Place the feeder indoors near a power outlet. Plug the feeder's power cable into the ApplianceLinc's controlled outlet and then plug the ApplianceLinc into the power outlet.

    Install the timer software onto your home PC. Connect the PowerLinc Controller to the computer with the included USB cable and plug the PowerLinc directly into a wall outlet.

    Follow the software instructions for setting up the connection between your computer and the ApplianceLinc that is connected to the feeder. Once complete, you will be able to turn the feeder ON or OFF from the computer (locally or remotely). You can also create a timed schedule from either the computer or from a built-in timer on the feeder itself.

    Information About Each of the Included Products

    Ergo Pet Feeder
    Designed for either cats or dogs over 15 pounds, this remarkable feeder can be programmed to dispense food up to eight times a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Food is delivered to the bowl over several minutes, using a slow-moving auger, which is totally pet safe, even if Fido sticks his tongue up the food chute! An additional stirring mechanism inside the storage container minimizes the possibility of clogs and jams. If your pet weighs under 15 pounds, this kit is also available with a small feeder.

    Each Autopetfeeder includes a dishwasher-safe bowl for easy cleaning and a 24-hour programmable timer with built-in battery backup. A non-chewable cord ensures pet safety.

    INSTEON PowerLinc Controller and Timer Software
    The INSTEON PowerLinc Controller is a stand-alone home automation interface for controlling lights, appliances, heating/air conditioning systems and alarm systems. This module has on-board memory so timers can be downloaded without the need to leave your computer up and running. This home automation interface uses a USB connection for downloading timer and event macros.

    The Timer Software runs on computers that use Microsoft Windows® 98se, Windows 2000 or Windows XP Home or Professional. It does not run on Windows "server" versions of 2000 or 2003.

    Additional Kit Available With Panasonic Network Camera
    Want to watch your pets while you're away from home? Make sure they're eating right and staying off the couch by picking up this kit with an added Panasonic Network Camera, which provides high-quality color video that can be viewed from any Internet-connected PC in the world. The Panasonic Network Camera can be viewed from a standard web browser or even a compatible cell phone.

    Please remember that although this kit allows you to monitor and feed your pet remotely, it is not a substitute for normal pet care you would use while away.
