I have a big cat. Will he/she fit in Aimicat?
The space inside the globe measures: 450 * 470 * 420mm. If your cat is 450mm or less from the neck to the butt, then your cat can use Aimicat.
My cat is really small. Is it safe for him/her to use Aimicat?
Yes, Aimicat employs infrared sensor recognition, so cat recognition is not restricted by weight. Aimicat is significantly safer than products which use pressure sensors, especially for kittens weighing less than 80 grams.
How much can the waste compartment hold?
According to our testing, Aimicat’s waste compartment can hold up to 7.2 kg of cat waste for 7 days.
It also depends on how well cat litter absorbs urine. If it absorbs less urine and less feces, the container can hold more waste. In general, the fecal volume of a cat is proportional to its weight. So, if a cat is 6.5-7.5 kg, it will produce 112ml of urine every day, about 0.78 liters of urine every week. In this case, Aimicat would hold about 0.9kg of cat litter each week.
How many cats could use Aimicat?
We recommend one to three cats for every Aimicat. We suggest you monitor your cats' behavior and evaluate if they are willing to share the smart litter box.
How often do I need to dispose the waste?
Once per week is a good rule of thumb.
Do I need to use a special type of trash bag?
No need - Simply use a trash bag that is larger than the waste compartment.
What if my cat tries to enter while Aimicat is in self-cleaning mode?
The infrared sensors will detect your cat and the self-cleaning mode will stop. Aimicat will continue to self-clean after your cat exits Aimicat.
What type of cat litter should I use?
We recommend using clumping clay (made of Bentonite), corn, tofu, or cat litter with good clumping properties. We do not recommend pine, recycled paper, and silica gel crystals.
When my cat does his business, he tends to scratch the litter a lot. Is the soft silicone base strong enough or replaceable if needed?
Yes, we found some cats like scratching the rubber bowl in our tests, and we replaced it with harder and thicker material to prevent the cat from damaging it.
Regarding the Steps
As you have seen in the workshop tour, we made a variety of cat steps to make it easier for cats to get in and out. But when experimenting with cats, we found ourselves thinking more from a human perspective. The smallest cats that we have tested on is 6 weeks old（330g ）, and according to our observations, the cat could use Aimicat without any problems.
In the meantime, we are working on the steps for cats with arthritis, so stay tuned.
What is the input voltage, Does Aimicat can used in my country?
100 ~ 240v AC ,Different specifications shall be sent according to the detailed specifications of different countries, the information of your countries used should be collected and confirm with you after campaign.
How long can the carbon filter be used?
The carbon filter lasts for up to 90 days. We recommend replacing the carbon filter every 30-60 days for optimal filtration.
The Carbon filter is part of the integrated design of Aimicat. We highly recommend that you use our carbon filter for better and longer lasting smell removal. We will send you a carbon filter link after the crowdfunding ends. The cost of one filter is $12.
Will the wire break?
We designed Aimicat wires to be bite proof - so that even if it is bitten, there is voltage safety.
