    to push the bowl …
    to push the bowl out of the way when shes hungry. So that was the fix. the same arduino board controls my deadbolt so I can unlock the door via internet but a password is required.
    I would like to add a RFID tag to their collars and if they go up to it and they haven’t eaten in awhile (in case i forgot) it will auto drop a snack or cup i have both coded. I wanted to do this design but I want to hold 50lb bag of food! When water is hooked up using a valve I’ll post vid response when done GJ

    Mine is alot different, I use linksys bridged and arduino and ethernet shield, the PVC pipe is attached to the bottom of the box and leads to a bowl, a servo holds a flat piece of metal in two spots 2 servos one servo opens drops to next then top closes and bottom servo opens to let food drop closes, top opens fills up just a cup closes.. waits for cycle/command via internet there is a trip wire set up so if the bowl is moved/out of reach of pvc it wont allow you to, the dog likes

    This is cool, put it in a fancy box, build em in taiwan and you could flog them for £500. It’d be a bargain compared to pet hotel fees.

    Perhaps a version for kids that dispensed oreos.
