Posted on 29/11/2019 by pjutras in Domestic

The first thing to do when you receive the package is to verify its content.
You should have the following:

  • Litter-Robot Connect Circuit Board
  • Litter-Robot Connect Control Panel Cover
  • QR code
  • Power Supply

What is that? A new DFI?
Yes, the new DFI is an upgraded version designed by Litter-Robot and it works on the principle of a laser beam instead of IR signals.

Follow this step-by-step guide and your Litter-Robot should be ready to connect in no time.

Step 1:

Make sure the power supply is unplugged from the base of the Litter-Robot or the manipulation could cause harm or damage the unit.

Open the control panel by removing the 5 screws:

Remove the Circuit cover:

Unplug the 3 connectors on the circuit board:


Install the new circuit board and connect back the 2 remaining connectors:

Close back the control panel but do not screw it completely since we will have to come back later to it.

Connect the harness to the 4 pins connector on the motherboard:

Install the Circuit Board Cover:

Once all the connections are secured inside the control panel, close it back:

Step 2: 

Remove the control panel cover with a small flat screwdriver:

Take the new Cover and install it:

Install the new QR code:

Step 3: Connect the unit

To connect the unit, simply follow this well-made tutorial: 

I think you are pretty much done and you deserve a round of applause.
