Top customer reviews
Consider this an honest evaluation. I am including pictures and even a video walk-through.
The GemPet SmartFeeer arrived well packaged. As I removed it from its box, I was quite pleased to find that the feeder was well wrapped and its accessories put in its own cardboard casing. I was also very pleased to see that the feeder itself is well constructed. It basically comes in two pieces, the feeder/hopper and the dispensing tray. The dispensing tray easily slides and snaps into place with a nice reassuring "click." I put the feeder into place on my kitchen floor and plugged it in.
Next step was downloading the Petwant app from the iOS app store. The app is completely free. It is also available for Android.
Included with the SmartFeeder is a small booklet that serves as a "quick-start" guide. I must commend the company for making the guide extremely easy to follow. I know this product is made overseas, and ever so often when ordering such products, I have to deal with poorly translated instructions. That is not the case here. In fact, the instructions come with illustrations that essentially anybody with any level of tech experience can easily follow.
To initially set this device up, you have to pair it to your WiFi network. The app is absolutely essential for this process. If you don't have a smartphone or tablet, you may be out of luck as I don't believe that this can be done via the product's website. So be warned!
Once you start the smartphone/tablet app, it walks you through the WiFi pairing process. What you need to do is connect to the device's own WiFi hotspot. The app will instruct you how to do this, but basically, you just go to your phone/tablet settings and select the device's WiFi name. Once it connects to that hotspot, it will then reconnect you to your home's WifI. This rather strange setup only helps to ensure a secure connection and the ability for you to connect to the SmartFeeder wherever you may be in or outside of your home.
Once connected, you press a button beneath the top hood to release it, and then pour your favorite dry pet food into the hopper. The hopper is capable of holding 4.3 liters of food which is roughly 1.14 gallons. Certainly enough food to last...oh....at least a month, I would estimate.
Through the app, you can create a personal profile for your pet. You can indicate its breed, age, weight and overall characteristics (active, lazy, etc.). I am not quite certain why the app asks for all this information as it certainly doesn't seem to make any feeding recommendations based upon what is inputed. However, I suppose for personal records, it serves a purpose.
You can add individual feeding schedules by clicking on the + sign. You can indicate the time of day you want the food dispensed and the portion amount. I would suspect for the first few days, most people will be playing with the portion controls just to be certain it's "just right." You can record your voice to call for your pet as the food is dispensed. You can also take pictures or video at the time of feeding.
Being that this is an overseas product, all the programming is in metric and military time. This makes things initially difficult for American consumers who have to convert measurements and time when settings up a feeding schedule. To date, I have not found anything in settings that converts everything to U.S. standards. Is this a huge concern? No, but the company should address this issue with future firmware updates. I know that firmware updates are regularly applied, as my app walked me through such an update when I first installed it. So, at least the company is pushing software updates to make the feeder better all the time
And, yes absolutely, you can access and monitor this feeder from anywhere inside and outside of your home. From work, I can log into the app and see a wide-angle video feed. If I want to call my pet to see that he/she is okay, I can simply do that by pressing on the app's microphone button. If I want to suddenly change the feeding schedule remotely, I can do that as well. From what I understand, it will take at least 3 minutes for any changes to be registered to the server. So, any feeding changes you make, do it for 3 minutes later than the present.
The app keeps a record of number of feedings and portions, as well as telling you, at a glance, when the next feeding is scheduled for. You can even initiate a manual feeding outside of the normal schedule.
I have been using this feeder for the past three days and it has worked flawlessly without a hitch. Additionally, it never randomly disconnected from my network as other WiFi devices like these sometimes do. So, I am very confident that once connected, it will stay connected.
Thus far, I have posted a very favorable review, which this product truly deserves. However, there are a few minor drawbacks -- some of which I just previously discussed -- that you should be aware of...
First and most importantly, is the price and the apparent deals that this company is making with purchasers. This product, at the time of this review, has historically sold anywhere between $170-$190. That's very expensive for this type of gadget. It seems the company is also aware that they are overpricing this feeder, as they include a coupon inside the package that gives purchasers an extra percentage refund if they write an Amazon review. One reviewer stated he got a 10% coupon. A 30% coupon was included with mine. I can't even assure that any of you contemplating the purchase of this product will receive a coupon at all.
Next, as I pointed out, all the conversions are done in metric and military time. For U.S. customers, this will take a little bit of time to get accustomed to, but as I already stated in my review, this is not a major deal.
The microphone acts more like a "walkie talkie" than a real 2-way communication device. So you can't talk and listen at the same time. Again, that should not be a deal breaker.
The app is well designed, but just comes short of being truly intuitive. I am hoping the company makes some upgrades to allow the input you provide about your pet to suggest food portions.
If you take away the price and conversion problems, in all, this is a 5-star product. It is well built. It is easy to connect to your WiFi. You can absolutely access your feeder from anywhere you may be in the world. The video, camera and audio quality is exceptional (no night vision).
I think this GemPet SmartFeeder serves the needs for those that travel and want to be certain their pet is accurately fed while away. It also is great for those who want to put their pet on a strict diet. No more simply pouring food into a dish and allowing the pet to have access to all it wants during the day. This feeder serves portions that are under your control.
They are really good at opening containers so this lid is perfect as it keeps them out. The unit is heavy enough not to tip over and they both weigh almost 10 pounds each.
The portion size is good as you can feed a large amount in small portions so your cats do not get sick and the unit itself stores a very large amount of food.
The unit was easy to set up, it took me less than 2 minutes. The unit lets you record a greeting to call your cats. I love the video, microphone and speaker, they are all food quality and its fun to watch them when I am not home. The only con about this feeder is that it only allows one profile for a pet.
I would highly recommend this feeder to anyone!
