I did make a mistake in both videos. You WILL need a new power supply for both generation feeders. The one it comes with does not have enough Amps to keep it stable. Many different options will work but I have included a suggestion below.
WiFi Board: https://amzn.to/3g0377o

Wire Cutters/snips: https://amzn.to/34UeVVv
(for Gen 2 feeders only)
T10 Torx screwdriver: https://amzn.to/2ENSMh1
OPTIONAL (but recommended):
Wire Stripper: https://amzn.to/2WI8Uac
6" of 18 Gauge wire: https://amzn.to/2Zc9ApP
Velco or double sided stick tape to secure the board.
If you have any questions please let me know…
