More details on the PetSafe ScoopFree® Smart Self-Cleaning Covered Litter Box
Overview: The PetSafe ScoopFree Smart Covered Self-Cleaning Litter Box (PAL00-16808) can be left alone for weeks at a time without scooping, cleaning, or refilling. It uses a special blue crystal litter that absorbs urine and dries solid waste to prevent odors. ScoopFree has an automatic rake that sweeps waste into a covered trap 20 minutes after your cat leaves the litter box. It uses disposable litter trays with pre-measured crystal litter to make it easy to set up, use, and dispose of. The Smart Covered Self-Cleaning Litter Box has Wi-Fi that lets you monitor your cat's health from anywhere using the My PetSafe app. The litter box is powered by the included AC adapter with a 10-foot cord.
Privacy Cover: This version of the ScoopFree Smart litter box includes a privacy cover to give your cat a secluded bathroom, and to reduce litter tracking. The rim of the cover has four pegs that align and snap into the four notches on the litter box. With the cover in place, the ScoopFree litter box becomes a front entry box.
PetSafe Crystal Litter: The ScoopFree litter box uses crystal litter which performs better than clay or other types of clumping litter. The 99% dust-free crystals absorbs urine on contact, and dries solid waste, to quickly remove odors instead of masking them. In addition, the crystals don't stick to your cat's feet, so the litter isn't being tracked everywhere after your pet leaves the box. With the crystal litter, the ScoopFree litter boxes use 5 to 10 times less litter than clay or clumping litter, meaning one tray can last up to 30 days in a single-cat household.
Disposable Trays: The Litter Tray has a unique design to keep the litter box clean and fresh-smelling. The plastic tray lining creates a powerful extra barrier to protect against leakage. The ScoopFree Self-Cleaning Litter Box rakes the solid waste into the tray's covered waste trap to lock in odors. When the waste trap becomes full, you can swing the bottom of the tray around to the top, and seal the litter and waste inside. Since the trays are disposable, there's no need to touch or smell the waste.
Cat Usage: The ScoopFree litter box can be used in single and multiple cat homes. For a single cat, it is typical for the crystal litter to remain clean for 20 to 30 days. The disposable litter tray will likely need replacing every 10 to 20 days for two cats, or every 7-10 days for 3 cats. Additional ScoopFree litter boxes are recommended for 3 or more cats.
Note: If you have a kitten under 6 months of age, you should leave the unit unplugged and scoop waste until he is 6 months old.
Self-Cleaning: When your cat enters the litter box, sensors trigger a countdown timer. Twenty minutes later an automatic rake sifts through the crystal litter, lifting out the solid waste and depositing it into a closed waste compartment to block odors. The remaining litter is still clean and fresh-smelling. If your cat re-enters the litter box within the 20-minute time period, the countdown timer resets itself and begins another 20-minute countdown. The rake will not operate if a cat is in the litter box because it will be blocking the detection sensors. When the waste trap is full or the crystal litter is saturated, it is time to replace the litter and litter tray. The litter tray comes with its own lid, allowing you to seal up the tray for easy disposal.
On-board Controls/Display: The litter box has a panel on one end with manual controls and an LED usage counter. The Wi-Fi button has a color-coded LED backlight to indicate the Wi-Fi status. The LED backlit Manual Rake button shows if the rake is powered, in countdown, paused, or if a mechanical error has occurred. The Health Counter keeps a running total of the number of uses to help you determine when to change the litter tray. It also helps you to proactively detect common cat health problems if the usage count is abnormal. The counter automatically increases by one each time the rake completes a cycle. The reset button next to the counter display lets you reset the count to zero each time you replace the litter tray.
Wi-Fi: The Smart ScoopFree litter box uses Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n - 2.4GHz) to connect to the My PetSafe app on your smartphone or tablet. With the app, you can track your cat's use of the litter box in real time to help detect common cat health problems. The usage count can be viewed on the app, with a graph showing usage over a range of time. The app lets you remotely activate the rake to help keep the litter box clean. You can also program the app to remind you to change the litter box at regular intervals. The My PetSafe app is compatible with Apple devices running iOS 10.3 or later, and Android devices running version 5.0 and up.
