When away, make sure your pet [fish, cat, dog] never goes hungry with this WiFi-activated feeder/treat dispenser.
You can either feed your pet remotely by pressing the button in Cloud Control (on your phone or computer) or you can set up an automated feeding schedule through IFTTT (If this then that). IFTTT is a service that lets you connect to different web apps through simple conditional statements.
How it works:
Any time the feeder receives a signal through the cloudBit, the servo is activated. A food container [with a small hole in its side] is attached to the servo. When the servo turns, a few pellets/kibble/treats drop out of the container and into a bowl. You can adjust the hole and size of the container accordingly depending on whether you are feeding a cat, dog, or fish.
You can activate the servo remotely in a couple different ways. You can either use the littleBits button in Cloud Control to send a single pulse to the cloudBit, activating the servo. Or, you could use an IFTTT channel, like Date & Time to automate the feeding at times you set.
