CatGenie Maintenance Cartridges are available:
The new SaniSolution 120 Cartridge is biodegradable and recyclable (unlike cat litter, which is neither). Holds 120 washes and when set on Cat Activation provides 240 washes (and one cartridge is smaller and uses less plastic than the lid of one plastic litter jug). In one year, two CatGenie cats would use only 6 to 7 cleaning cartridges. In the same time, two cats, using a regular litter box or an automatic self-cleaning litter box, would need and contaminate about 356 lbs (or twelve 28-lb plastics containers) of cat litter. The cartridge is biodegradable and recyclable. Always keep an extra 120 Cartridge. CatGenie can't run on empty. Please Note: The 120 Cartridge only works in the CatGenie 120 Model. The 120 will NOT work in the original CatGenie, which only uses the 60 Cartridge. The 60 Cartridge will NOT work in the CatGenie 120.
So glad I found The Robot Shop and The CatGenie! I absolutely love my CatGenie! Never thought I would come home and walk into the house and think "mmm what is the wonderful light fresh scent I smell?"... Oh yeah it is my litter box!!!
The CatGenie fresh scent SaniSolution SmartCartridge are by far cheaper and easier to change (I have 3 cats and a cartridge usually last about 2 months) then having to deal with the mess and stench of cleaning a regular old fashion kitty litter (which I was having to do twice weekly).
Seriously if you don't already have a CatGenie, get one today!!!!!
Last week, cat-lover and programmer with the CatGenie—an automatic, self-cleaning cat litter box. As Lopez describes it, the CatGenie is “the Rolls Royce of cat litter boxes”—all he has to do is replace the CatGenie SaniSolution SmartCartridge on cue, and the CatGenie disposes of foul-smelling cat turds on its own.Overview The Catgenie communicates with the chip on the cartridge through the exposed contacts. For the more technical minded, the Catgenie acts as an I2C bus master (providing ...Lopez was enjoying the hands-off, CatGenie high life—that is, until he ran out of SaniSolution. In a pinch, he decided to refill the cartridge with water until his new order of CatGenie-branded cartridges arrived in the mail. He popped the refilled cartridge back into the litter box, fully expecting the cleaning mechanism to whirl back to life.Using the cartridge Put the cartridge back together and insert it into the Catgenie. The Arduino should get power from the Catgenie and boot the program we uploaded ...After cruising around the Internet, [Jorge] found a CatGenie community that has released and something called a , a drop-in replacement for the cartridge tag reader in the litter box. It simulates both the RFID tag and its reader, allowing any robotic litter box owner to select between 120 cycle cartridges, 60 cycle cartridges, a maintenance cartridge, and set the fill level of those cartridges.Okay. We've got an Arduino with an LED and four wires sticking out of it, our sketch (aka "program") loaded into the Arduino memory, and our CatGenie cartridge ...Some Background: I have two CatGenies, both of which take a proprietary cartridge that are good for sixty cycles. The CatGenie will not run without a non-empty cartridge ...I have had my CatGenie since 2006. Never had an issue. No I put a cartridge in and it drains it! WHY? I called the tech support at catgenie. They told me because of the age of my unit, they couldn't extend the $90 repair guarantee to me, hoever, they would offer mr a $30 discount toward a new one.
