The SureFlap cat door is an electronic door which unlocks to allow entry for pets with programmed microchips. If your pet already has a microchip implanted, this door should work with it. SureFlap cat flaps will also work with their microchip collar keys, but no keys are included with the door. The smaller version is suitable for average sized cats. There is a larger version if you need a door for your Maine Coon.
The SureFlap door operates on 4 AA batteries which give a service life of about 6 months. The door has the electronic lock, but in addition it can also be manually set to locked, open, in only, or out only. This door does work in steel or aluminum doors, unlike some of its competitors that work with microchip pet ID tags. It comes with a 3 year manufacturer warranty.
The larger Pet Door size is available in the Connect version which allows the door to communicate with a wireless hub. This can be connected to your home wireless network, and you can use a smart phone app to remotely lock and unlock the pet door. NOTE--The Connect version is different than the regular Pet Door, so you cannot buy a Connect Hub and use it with the regular version of the Pet Door.
For installation on steel and aluminum doors, SureFlap recommends using the mounting adapter. This allows you to cut a larger hole than you would otherwise use and that means less interference to the RFID signal.
DUALSCAN, PET DOOR, AND CONNECT VERSIONS ARE RACCOON PROOF:
The DualScan door differs in that the electronic lock works in both directions, so only cats with keys can get out as well as getting in. Because it locks in both directions, the DualScan is the one to get if you are trying to prevent raccoons from getting in or trying to let one cat out while keeping another inside. Warning: In that two cat scenario, if the cats are buddies there is nothing to prevent the cat you don't want getting out from following the cat with the chip.
The Pet Door has a lock on the inside and has a raccoon or intruder mode. If the flap is touched but there is no key present, it operates an exterior lock that prevents the door from being pulled open from the outside.
The E-Cat Door is a less expensive alternative that is not raccoon proof. If you have a larger dog and need an electronic door, have a look at the High Tech Pet Door and the Plexidor Electronic Dog Door.
