My cats are having fun with my homemade Arduino-Based automatic catfeeder with Ethernet shield, which can be triggered manually via a internet form, via push button or automatically at defined times (e.g. early in the morning) via cron job.
When the cat feeder is triggered, a short melody rings out – in the meantime our cats are conditioned to that sound 😉
You can find more informations and some photos about the machine on my website at http://www.klomp.de/index.php/catfeeder – thanks Matt Hand now also in English.
The feeder is inspired by Mathew J. Newtons catfeeder, which is powered by a Cisco switch. You can find his website here: http://www.newtonnet.co.uk/catfeeder/
