There are definitely people that can use this. I'm glad someone finally came up with a low cost solution
You would connect your filter to the auto shut off. When the button is pressed, power is shut off to the connected equipment (in this case, the filter) for a specified time (e.g. 10 minutes). After the selected time has elapsed, power is restored.How does this operate? It would be great if you could make a video

Ken, funny, it was actually seeing your journal and the omron h3y-2 timer that got me started thinking about all of this@monkeyruler90, AutoTopOff makes feeder timers for $35.00. We worth it in my opinion. See Post # 222 on my journal for photos and details.

The unit is well made, the cords are heavy duty, it's a solid product. This is an item that's not worth trying to make from scratch, much easier to purchase and be done with it.Thanks Ken,
I looked at your post, good info!
Mouser has the bare Omron part, but for much, much higher price! I am surprised how autotopoff.com is able to sell this device for only 35 bucks! Has anyone bought stuff from them recently?
I have been thinking of such a device for some time now. Also thinking of a software solution, using one of those app and wifi-controllable plugs on Amazon. But that will need me to whip out a phone to control the outlet. This is so much simpler for feeding....any family member can do it!
BTW, took me a while to find your post #222, so here is a direct, permanent link to it:
I didn't realize one could post a link directly to the post itself, but I figured out how to do this, just click on Post # XXX of YYY and copy that url as the link. I just learned something!!
