The Petnet SmartFeeder is definitely one of the best tech gifts money can buy if you're shopping for a pet owner, and the company behind it has just launched its very own app that connects to this latest example of Internet of Things (IoT) technology. While the original product launched along with an app that allows you to distribute more food into your pet's feeder when you're not at home, the new Petnet Mobile software is much more robust and boasts plenty of additional features.
More specifically, you can now make an automatic feeding schedule for your pet, adjusting when your furry friend does get to eat and how much. In addition to that, the app will notify you of all important events, including situations when the feeder needs to be charged, filled with more food, or has disconnected from the system. In case you want to get involved with the development of this IoT gadget, the new Petnet Mobile app also gives you a simple way of submitting new recipes to the company's team for review. If it happens to meet the general criteria, your very own recipe can now be included in this smart pet feeding system.
Why would one even want to buy a smart pet feeder? Well, because most veterinarians agree that personalized feeding partners are the number one factor affecting the health, quality of life, and general life expectancy of pets. As Petnet claims over half of all cats and dogs in the US are obese, they are probably onto something with this product. To put it simply, the Petnet SmartFeeder basically takes your pet's breed, age, weight, activity level, and other types of important factors into account when suggesting the ideal portion size for its meals. Naturally, the main goal is to prolong your pet's life and its quality.
In addition to all of the features listed above, the new Petnet Mobile app also provides analytics of your pet's eating habits so that you can make your own informed adjustments regarding its feeding patterns if you choose to do so.
