Attention! All smart products (regardless the brand) can only connect with a 2.4 GHz network. If you have a 5 GHz network, it is always possible to change this to a 2.4 GHz network. Contact your internet provider on how to change this. If you have trouble with connecting, please contact us.

6. Final step
6. Connecting...

Wait until the smart Pet Feeder connects with the app. Once connected, you can change the name of the device and allocate it to a room. Congratulations, you have successfully connected the Talo Smart Pet Feeder to the Smart Life App.

Can't connect the Pet Feeder? That is probably because the Pet Feeder was not reset properly, or you are trying to connect it with a 5 GHz network. Make sure the light flashes rapidly, and contact your internet provider to find out if you are on a 2.4 GHz network.

App settings
Within the app, you can do the following:

Express feed to give your pet some extra food (also possible with the button on the pet feeder).
Change the default quantity of the express/manual feed.
View the feeding record.
Enable or disable feedings from the feeding schedule.
Create an automatic feeding schedule.

Additionally, you will get updates about the feeding status. You will receive a notification when: the feeding was successful, the food is almost running out, the pet feeder is completely out of food, and/or when a feeding was missed. With these notifications, you will never miss an important detail about your pet's diet.

Smart Sensor
Smart Sensors:

The pet feeder has two sensors. One to measure the food that is left in the tank, and the other one to register if the food came through. When the food is running low, you will receive a notification on your phone to indicate that it is time to refill the machine. Also when food was dispensed as setup, you can receive a notification, so you can rest assured that your pet has his/her food.

Placing the pet feeder in direct sunlight could cause disruption with the sensor. As a result, you could receive notifications on your phone that a feeding was missed, whereas in reality the feeding was successful. Therefore, we always recommend to make sure that sunlight cannot shine directly into the feeding machine. Not placing the pet feeder in direct sunlight is also better for your pet's food quality.

Low on Food
Cleaning
Cleaning:

Open the lid and take the food tank out of the Pet Feeder.
The bowl can be removed for cleaning too.

Both the bowl and food tank are dishwasher proof. Clean the outside of the device using a soft, damp cloth.

      Frequently Asked Questions:

      Talo Pet Feeder:

      How many different feeding moments can I set?

      You can set as many different moments as you want. You can set these feeding times on different days, for example only on Mondays, only on Monday to Friday, only on weekends, all week, or just once and no more. In short, there are enough options for your pet.

      How do I set the feeding schedule to repeat every day?

      Click on "+" to add a new feed time, or edit an existing feed time by clicking on the time. Click "repeat" and select all days of the week. Save the settings and from now on the feeding time will repeat every day.

      I get notifications that a feeding was missed, while the food came out. How is that possible?

      There are two infrared sensors in the pet feeder. They measure if there is enough food in the tank and whether the food came out successfully. If the pet feeder is located in a sunny environment (next to the window for example), then it could be that the infrared sensor may not be interrupted because the sunlight is shining in the sensor. As a result, the pet feeder will send a notification to your phone that no food was dispensed.

      We recommend that you place the pet feeder in such a way that it is impossible for direct sunlight to shine in the feeding machine. That is also better for your pet's food.

      What is the maximum number of servings per feeding moment?

      You can set a minimum of 1 serving and a maximum of 12 servings. Each serving contains about 10 grams.

      Is my type of feed suitable for the automatic feeder?

      The Talo Smart Automatic Feeder is only suitable for dry food. If you often feed your pet wet food, it will not be suitable. We also recommend that you have a maximum chunk diameter of 1.5 cm. This way you are assured that the automatic feeder will always work properly. Not sure if your chunks are suitable? Send us a message with the type of feed and we will help you further.
