Can a cat paw reach up and manipulate the feeder wheel to dispense food during non feeding times?
No. My cat tried, but the food stays out until the feeder dispenses it.

My internet goes out and then comes back on pretty often. When the feeder is disconnected from wi-fi, it shows the solid red light. How can I reconnect it to wi-fi when this happens?
If reloading the app doesn't reconnect it, try to reset the feeder and follow the steps to reconnect it.
If still not working, contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you.

Does this pet feeder also work without wi-fi? I'm worried about my furbaby going hungry if the internet goes out.
This feeder supports wifi functions when plugged in, and can be controlled through the app. Once programmed, with batteries installed, it will still dispense food according to the programs when there is a power outage or network failure.

Our unit is about a month old. The feeder does not work unless there are batteries in it. So we put batteries in and now something is draining the batteries. I have to replace them weekly. Very costly. Something is not right. Its not working without batteries and draining the batteries when I put them in. Can you help?
Please check if the power cable and the outlet are working properly. The feeder needs to be plugged in to use the app function and it's not recommended to use the batteries alone for a long time.
Contact us via email@example.com if it's still not working.
-By WOpet Team on November 12, 2021
Can you set up a port routing so the phone app will work while you're away to monitor that the feeder is still working? We're going on a 7-day trip and have purchased a large water device and this programmable feeder. Would like to ensure that it's working other than having our neighbor stop over. Was hoping she'd just have to check mid-week. Thanks.
For the feeder, you can check on the feeding records to see if the feeding is working.
If feeding is fail, you will receive a message about it.

I have a Nighthawk Tri-band Mesh WiFi 6 system at home (Simultaneous Tri-band : WiFi 6 AX3600 (1800 + 1200 + 600Mbps), Explicit Beamforming : 2.4GHz & 5GHz bands). Would I have any problem to connect WOpet Patrol Automatic Cat & Dog Feeder WiFi 15-Meal to my wifi mesh at home?
The feeder only supports 2.4 GHz wifi, and as in your case, normally it works.
If not, please try to separate the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks.

How does the feeder know what time it is? The phone App has some numbers in it but it does not explicitly indicate if these are intervals or clock time, and if they are clock time are they local or UTC. Is there a internal clock in the feeder that gets synced to the network? Does the clock know about Daylight savings time? Thank you!
The feeder is using 24-hour military time, and it will get synced to the network. The time zone on the app can be changed according to your local time.

If it's still not working, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you.

I can‘t disassemble the storage container for cleaning, it sits pretty tight. Is there any kind of trick I can use to get it off the base?
Hold the barrel with two hands and turn it clockwise. A brand-new feeder would be tight, and it will loosen after a period of use.
-By WOpet Team on March 4, 2021

I don't have an electrical outlet where I plan to use it, so I will run it on batteries only. Will I still be able to use the WiFi app with it running only battery powered?
When only battery-powered, it will go into sleep mode and some functions will be limited: 1) the voice recording will only play once before feeding the pets, but not during feeding. 2) the feeder's Wi-Fi connection will be disconnected and all the operations on the App will be unavailable. These are designed to save battery energy to ensure that the pet feeder can keep working for a long time.
