Groom Robot is a completely automated feeding system that perfectly simulates natural grazing by allowing horses to enjoy regular and personalized doses of hay, grain and water.
The system holds up to 70kg of hay and is programmed to release measured amounts at regular intervals. On dispensing a dose of hay, the system will emit a light spray of water over the hay to eliminate dust particles, preventing respiratory problems that can afflict horses. Groom Robot also dispenses timed doses of grain and a free but monitored water supply to ensure the horse is kept well hydrated.
Groom Robot can be linked to your mobile phone allowing you to receive SMS messages informing you on how much water your horse drank that day and will also confirm a report on the programmed feed doses and the level of the buffer battery.
You can also set Groom Robot up for “Open Air” use too; we install a solar panel to the system which is capable of supplying energy to charge the battery.
Your overall annual running costs will be greatly reduced, no more wasted hay due to excessive doses and your labour costs will be drastically reduced using an automated dietary management system.
The hopper contains feed in pellets, flakes or any other type of grain, even mixed, for adding to your horse’s diet. The dispenser supplies multiple doses of 250 ml for each ration programmed in the span of one day based on the diet. The dosing dispenser can also be activated manually by pressing one key, in addition to the daily diet, without changing it; this is useful at the end of a particularly intense working activity.
The quantity of water consumed during the day is monitored to make sure the horse drinks regularly.
Control – GSM/GPRS Remote Alarm:
The Groom Robot processor is linked to the owner’s mobile phone (and another 2 different numbers, if required) for immediate notification via SMS of any problem that may jeopardise the perfect functioning of the Robot, thus requiring human intervention.
At the end of each day, the Groom Robot processor sends a report via SMS to the owner’s mobile phone (and another 2 numbers, if required) confirming the correct opening of the feeder and dispensing of the programmed feed doses, as well as a report on how much water the horse drank and the level of the buffer battery.
