Should you break or damage your CatGenie, your CatGenie SaniSolution cartridge, an Arduino, your computer, sprain your thumb get divorced or whatever - you follow these instructions at your own risk and I assume no liability for what you do or what happens to you. You're a big person. Caveat Emptor.Warning:
By following this instructable you may in some way void your CatGenie warranty... but as long as you don't send back the cartridge with non-CatGenie cleanser in it, I don't see how they would know.Safety:
There really aren't any safety concerns I can think of beyond common sense. If common sense is an uncommon virtue for you, maybe you should find someone to help you. :-) If not, then rock on!Materials:
- an Arduino microprocessor (or clone thereof)**
- some breadboarding wires and an LED (any color)
- a computer with which to program said Arduino
- a "dead" SaniSolution cartridge
- a CatGenie you're willing to disassemble and put back together.***
**actually, any microprocessor that communicates via I2C (aka "Two Wire) protocol will suffice, but the Arduino is what I have available and one with which I am familiar. Programming a PIC controller or whatever is on you.
***unless you're willing to fabricate your own cartridge holder. You're on your own there.
