Gosh! EasyFeed Smart Pet Feeder – Product Review

 

Have you ever wondered why you need an automatic pet feeder?

Give your precious pet the attention they need with the EasyFeed Automatic Pet Feeder by Gosh!. This handy device is a modern and sleek smart feeding solution for your furry friend that is one of its kind available in the market today. The Gosh! EasyFeed is a WiFi connected pet feeder armed with a built-in camera and a speaker so you can see and speak to your cat or dog while you are at work. It automatically delivers a portioned amount of food at set intervals and accurately tracks your pet’s nutrition based on what it’s eating. It also keeps your pet well-hydrated with its unique water dispenser.

 

Design

The Gosh! EasyFeed is simple in design and uses a hopper-style feeder. It can hold up to 20 cups or 2.5kg of dry food depending on the size of the kibble. You can use any dry pet food recommending kibble sizes of 0.4 inches or smaller. The water dispenser on the right can hold up to 0.8 litres of water.  At present, the dispenser is not automated, when the water jug is full and is loaded correctly over the water tray, the valve dispenses water until the water tray is full. The hopper, trays and water jug can easily be lifted out for cleaning and maintenance. Coloured LED indicators in the front indicates power, connection status and specifies how much food is available in the hopper and food tray.

The EasyFeed runs on power from the included wall adapter but as a precaution in-case the power goes out while you are away back-up batteries are provided that can last up to five days on a 10 feed-per-day schedule.
