The Q1 Smart Pet Feeder works through an app that allows you to remotely ensure that your dog or cat gets the exact portion of food at the right times throughout the day—even when you’re super busy away from home. The Q1 Smart Pet Feeder also ensures that the eating position is ergonomic and good for your best friend’s spine, that your pet’s food is sufficient, kept fresh and safely stored, and that your pet’s eating habits are always recorded and in check.
Keeping your Pet Fed No Matter How Busy You Are
Your dog or cat means the world to you. More than a furry friend that keeps you company, a dog, or a cat is a beloved family member that makes your life so much better and your home so much warmer… but it also poses certain challenges: namely how to take care of your pet when you’re busy away from home. Whether it’s work or play that has you busy, feeding your pet is just a click away with Q1!
Put an End to Pet Food Gulping
Many dogs and believe it or not, even cats have a tendency to devour their food when presented with their meal. Pets that eat rapidly are more likely to present with an assortment of ailments related to their speed eating including:
Feeding a pet once a day can lead to food gulping. The pet will be much hungrier with once-a-day feeding and the amount of food in the bowl is enough to cause problems if gulped down rapidly.
A Healthier and More Scientific Way of Feeding
The Q1 smart pet feeder allows you to switch from the “Normal” to “Slow” dispensing speed to slow down a pet’s eating. Under “Slow” mode, Q1 will push out your pet’s meal in increments of one section every 3 minutes. If a pet is at the feeder, they will not be able to gulp the entire meal because it is not entirely available to gulp. Thus, most food gulpers will have to slow down as their meal will be dispensed slowly.
Why We Create Q1
That’s why we developed the Q1 Smart Pet Feeder, a smart device that is remotely controlled through an app that works from your smartphone and which allows you easily make sure that, no matter how busy you are and how hectic your days may be, your best friend always has the right portion of fresh food available at the right time.
That would be the main challenge: if the pet feeder got stuck, your dog or cat could suddenly not have access to enough food or have access to too much food, which would be a problem. With its high-precision servo motor, the Q1 Smart Pet Feeder will hardly get stuck since it quickly and automatically adapts to ensure that the food and the device’s moving parts won’t get stuck.
Precision Pet Feeding for A Healthy Lifestyle
Not every dog and cat eat the same amount of food. A puppy or a kitten may need more, an elder cat may need less, and diabetic dogs may need more frequent smaller portions of food throughout the day. Either way, with its weight sensor, the Q1 Smart Pet Feeder calculates the perfect output and lets you set up the exact portion of food for each time your pet eats. The sensor output signal is calculated by a powerful embedded CPU to feedback the weight and notifies you when not enough food is present. In addition to that, you can adjust portions directly from the app, wherever you are.
Fresh and Crispy
No dog or cat likes food that’s less than fresh and crispy, and we all know that dry pet food is affected by environmental factors such as heat, cold or humidity, and loses quality while exposed in a conventional bowl. With a double lock freshness design ¬– not only is there a silicone sealing ring on the food outlet door, but also a moisture-proof desiccant box placed inside the feeder, the Q1 keeps out moisture, mould or insect while locks food in freshness.
A Feeding Bowl that Allows Your Pet to Eat Comfortably
It is well-known that the eating position of a dog or a cat may have long-term consequences for the animal’s spine, general health and cause whisker fatigue. That’s why the Q1 Smart Pet Feeder has been developed to have an ergonomic shape which also comes with a flat sloping bowl design that perfectly adjusts to the face shape of different dogs and cats and which allows any dog or cat to eat in a healthy position.
Q1 App – The Smart Assistant That Monitors Your Pet
The Q1 App is available free for both iOS and Android.
Three Feeding Modes
1. Preset a customized daily feeding plan on the smart app on your phone and the pet feeder will dispense food automatically.
2. Add extra meals to your pet’s usual plan via the app.
3. Add the extra meal or portion using the manual button on the automatic pet feeder.
Through the app’s device (with iOS and Android versions), you will be able to store and keep track of all this information, including your dog or cat’s eating habits and health data, making it extremely easy to share this information with your best friend’s vet.
In fact, the app will even tell you if the device fell down or if it’s running low on battery. This is the perfect assistance for every pet family who wants to ensure that their pets are well-fed and healthy, no matter what.
It‘s also equipped with a high-precision weight sensor which activates a food shortage alarm whenever an insufficient amount of food is in storage. Through the app, you constantly know exactly the amount of food that’s in storage indicating how many days of food are left in storage.
Safe and Silent
Your dog or cat’s safety and well-being are the very reason why the Q1 Smart Pet Feeder exists. The Q1 Smart Pet Feeder is entirely made from food-grade materials to ensure that the quality and freshness of your pet’s food are never compromised.
The device operates in a way that does not harm your dog or cat in any way, and its functioning is silent so that your pet is never startled by any noise or sudden movement in the machine. We have created a special slide structure that allows the food to be dispensed smoothly and silently.
Easy to Clean
At the same time, it’s a robust device that is designed to withstand the normal wear of a pet feeder and it is also extremely hygienic—all its parts that come in contact with food is dishwasher safe and can be easily removed to be easily washed so that you can keep it clean at all times.
More Than Cute
Since a home with a furry friend is even more welcoming when it looks good, we’ve even designed the Q1 Smart Pet Feeder to look (almost) as cute as your pup or kitten!
In addition to that, the Q1 Smart Pet Feeder almost looks like it’s alive—with its LED Breathing Light, the device gives a sense that it’s alive when it is working as a visible status warning. Along with the app’s notifications, through its LED Breathing Light, the Q1 Smart Pet Feeder lets you know that everything is fine when its light is on its warm white light mode, and it tells you that there’s something wrong when the light turns red.
