This older information-only website (super-feed.com) dates back to
1995. Its purpose is to
explain the many ways our Super Feeder® can be used. To buy or see our complete
line of products, click on any one of the link below:
INTERNATIONAL ORDER? PLEASE FIRST REVIEW OUR POLICY AT:
PERHAPS IT SHOULD BE CALLED "ALL-IN-ONE" SUPER FEEDER.
DO NOT CONFUSE THE SUPER FEEDER® WITH MANY OTHER BRANDS RELATING TO ITS OPERATION AND APPLICATION VERSATILITY. If you need personal assistance, you may
reach us at 615-470-5596 or
First, do you already have some type of programmable
lamp/appliance timer, home automation system (X-10, HAI, HALL 200 systems) or other
type of timer into which you can plug the feeder's supplied power adapter
into? You may control your Super Feeder® from anywhere using your Smart
Phone , iPad, Android or other similar system via Wi-Fi. Basically,
anything that will turn on a lamp or appliance will "trigger" and power the
Super Feeder. If the answer is YES to any of the above, then you may only
need to order a "basic" feeder package, which only comes
with a low voltage power supply. If the answer is NO, then you will
need to order a programmable
timer along with your Super Feeder from our list of timers, or you may choose a
combo deal with your
preferred timer, which will
include everything needed to use the Super Feeder®.
For outdoor use, ff you cannot keep a regular timer and the supplied indoor power supply out
of the rain using an enclosure, garage or otherwise, make sure you choose one of our
outdoor timer combos,
outdoor power supply which you can use with just about any
outdoor timer with a 120V outlet. You may trigger
feeders at one time with one timer or other device.
How to use
the Super Feeder®
home automation system like voice command or other
means listed above
Wi-Fi control, we recommend a
TP-LINK Wi-Fi Smart plug
like we offer individually or in a combo. The Wemo
Wi-Fi switch by Belkin or
other systems available at smarthome.com will
In regards to other Wi-Fi switches offered on the market today,
due to perpetual changes and updates to Wi-Fi system
used, some may not work if the socket does
not turn off completely (some do and some
may not like dimming type), meaning that any residual power coming out
of it during its off time will prevent the feeder
from resetting itself between programmed feed
cycles. Iris brand "smart outlet" in-wall has been reported
to work with smart phone. Z-Wave Smart Outlet the "Quirkey+GE
Outlink Smart Outlet systems will work. Some systems
by Leviton may
not work properly due to the fact that their systems
such as Z-Wave module, Z-Wave receptacle and dimming
modules may not completely turn off and thus
not work with the Super Feeder.
You can plug the ASF-1 or CSF-3, CSF-3XL supplied power adapter into a
100-240V module controlled by your system (KSF-2 and
KSF-2XL only come with 120V power suppply). You then
turn the module on for a couple of minutes with your
system, which in turn triggers and powers the
feeder. The feeder runs only for time in seconds
you adjusted the feeder to give you the portion you
want and then stops. When you turn the power off
for a couple of minutes, the feeder resets itself
and is once again ready to be triggered at the next
programmed time. If your system has 12 to 24 volts
output ac or dc, you can do away with the feeder's
own power adapter and hook directly to the feeder.
You could also control the feeder's run time
entirely with your external system by setting the
feeder's feed time controller to its maximum setting
of 70 seconds.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO RESET ANYTHING ON THE FEEDER DURING OR AFTER POWER
INTERRUPTIONS/OUTAGES! In fact, the feeder needs to be off for a couple
of minutes between feed cycles to reset itself.
NORMAL FEED CYCLES WILL RESUME WHEN POWER IS RESTORED.
YOU SHOULD PROGRAM SEVERAL DAILY FEED CYCLES. IF USING AN ANALOG TIMER,
FEED TIME MAY BE OFF SCHEDULE DURING A POWER OUTAGE, BUT FEED CYCLES WILL RESUME
WHEN POWER IS RESTORED AND NO FEED CYCLES WILL BE LOST, THEY WILL JUST BE
DELAYED. IF USING A DIGITAL TIMER, BATTERY BACKUP WILL KEEP EXACT
TIME AND FEED PROGRAMS, AND FEED CYCLES WILL RESUME WHEN POWER IS RESTORED.
2-3 feed cycles or more per day are suggested with smaller portions.
NOTE: In addition to the above, if you are ordering a
outdoor feeder, you may want to consider ordering hook-up wire, or you may
order a combo deal with it supplied. If you are ordering a cat feeder,
you will need a mount/platform, porch 4x4, 2x4 to a wall, or other type of
mount to which you will attach the feeder's metal bracket and strap.
Outdoor installation should include some protection for at least the lower
dispenser where food comes out against wild animals, particularly raccoons.

Aquarium ASF-1: It will
dispense flakes, fish stick, dry shrimp, crumbles, pellets up to 1/2".
The advantage of the ASF-1 aquarium Super Feeder® is that food exits out of a side chute, not out of the bottom (like most
other feeders) where moisture can (and will!) enter the feeder and contaminate the food,
especially flakes when used on an aquarium.
FEEDERS WITH AIR LINES OR SIMILAR GADGETS FOOL YOU! Have you ever seen what
is CREATED with forced air in a humid environment? MOISTURE!! Our
aquarium feeders will reliably deliver flake food with our patented
Moisture Trap Funnel. The funnel
NOT ATTACH TO THE FEEDER. The feeder's chute is placed next to the edge of the
funnel's opening, not over it, so that the neck of the funnel remains in the open air.
