I don't know about the OP, but I'm still here. I already have the option to turn it on/off, (already added the smart sensor,) food never dispenses from the object.
(I'm wondering why the object does absolutely nothing "out of the box." If some users have to upgrade it to get it to do anything initially, isn't something wrong?)
It's just useless in my game. I'd love to know if it's working for most people who bought it, so I know if it's strictly an issue on my end, (conflicting objects, etc.) or if it's a widespread issue like the leg of the Flute Forward dress completely missing.
Fill the Automatic Pet Feeding Station with food and the bowl will fill in 4, 6, 8, or 10 hour intervals to feed your Pet automatically. You can also upgrade the feeder with a Smart Sensor which fills the bowl only when your pet is hungry! Puppies, Kittens, Dogs, and Cats can use the feeder and up to two pets can eat from the machine at the same time
as the instructions says it fills up in intervals you have to set which time you want the smart sensor only fills when your pet is hungry.

Well ... I'm in the same boat ... Does not even give the option to set a timer. My sim upgraded one with the sensor before filling it with food, and vice versa on a second one. (Got a second one since it was suggested that only two dogs can feed from it a time. My sim has four dogs.) All that is given is the option to turn it on or off.
It just sits there and "looks pretty". Luckily there is a pond that the dogs can drink from if they get the extreme food moodlet since it is not working. My sim will have to go back to the individual bowls and fill them up one at a time.
Anyway ... so far this was a total waste of the simpoints to buy from the store. Then once in game, have to spend more sim cash to get a second one!
