PetSafe Electronic SmartDoor
Convenience for You and Your Pet
The PetSafe Electronic SmartDoor gives your pet a key to the house so he can come and go as he pleases.
Using radio-frequency technology, the SmartDoor reads the unique signal of a SmartKey worn on your pet's collar and triggers the battery power-driven flap to unlock. When the SmartDoor no longer senses your pet's SmartKey, the flap automatically locks back into place reducing the risk of unwanted animals, pets and strays coming into your home.
The SmartDoor offers 3 programmable modes: locked, unlocked and automatic (access only for pets wearing a SmartKey).
- Programmable for up to 5 pets.
- Installs in doors 1 ½ inches to 2 inches thick or walls 4 ¾ inches to 7 ¼ inches thick with the SmartDoor Wall Conversion Kit (sold separately).
- Includes 1 SmartKey - shipped in battery door.

The PetSafe SmartDoor allows you to control the access of your pets. When the SmartDoor is set to Automatic mode, only your pets wearing the SmartKey can pass through the SmartDoor. As your pet enters the adjustable range of the SmartDoor, the SmartDoor detects the SmartKey and unlocks automatically. The range is adjustable up to 3 feet. After your pet passes through the SmartDoor, the door will lock automatically. Without the SmartKey, no other animals can pass through.

This door is excellent. Some complain about range, intermittent ID recognition failure, magnet strength, binding, installation, etc., none of which I have noticed. If there is a range or recognition failure, it is probably caused by RF interference in the area. Mine works great and has not "forgotten" any of the 3 keys. After experimenting with a number of different pet doors, this is by far the best weatherized model I have had. It stops heavy winds and has no problems with binding or jamming. The rigid door makes a huge difference over the rubberized flaps. I ensured that the hole was square when I installed it, which is probably an issue for some. Correct installation is obviously a necessity. If the door is un-level or not squared appropriately, I can see a problem with binding. Mine is installed in an insulated steel door. Framing and mounting this through a wall would not be difficult, even without the tunneling kit sold separately. The doors frame is plastic so when the installation screws are installed, the door could easily skew if the hole, level, or square are incorrect. This would absolutely cause binding or jamming, as the door actually slides down into a channel to fully "lock" or secure. The door is pretty quiet, except for a rather loud "pop" when it lifts from the channel to unsecure. It scared the crap out of my Dingo for a few days but he got used to it quick. Now the two dogs and cat have learned that the "pop" means it's time to push. Yeah...if you didn't catch that...my 4lb. cat can easily open the large version of this door, but the wind does not stop it's reset. Now that the functionality is explained, I'll go into the Iris part.
Just for entertainment, I got the matching "Iris" hub from Lowe's which is a Zigbee and Z-Wave radio home automation controller. Not only does this allow you to switch from "Automatic" "Locked" and "Unlocked" modes from a smartphone or PC (locally or remotely), it monitors which animal (based on the collar transmitter) exits or enters. You can look at the "activity log" in the Iris app or website and see which animal went "in through the door" or "out through the door" and when. This is a pretty cool feature which has a ton of practical application, even if you don't realize it at first. (ie. it's now pretty simple to see if the kids actually let the dogs out). I should note that, although it is annotated nowhere in the documentation, I have determined that the internal radio for this door is Zigbee, not Z-Wave. If you purchase it with the intent of using it with a Z-Wave controller, it will NOT work. Lowe's convolutes these systems with "Iris" by selling both Z-Wave and Zigbee devices and not bothering to tell you what product is which.
There is a lot of room on the inside of the device also. I wanted to add an alarm sensor into the door and it was exceptionally easy to add a wireless reed switch based sensor inside the frame, using one of the built-in magnets as it's motivator. They should build this ability into the door, but it would require too many different versions for compatibility, as there isn't a single protocol for wireless alarm inter-compatibility. It was remarkably simple to add a Honeywell/Ademco 5800micra sensor.
The door has now been running on a cheap set of 4 "D" batteries for 2-3 months and hasn't dropped a bar on the "Iris" battery monitor. I would speculate that the version without the Iris transceiver has even longer battery life.
I have a 50lb Dingo, 75lb Siberian Husky, and 4lb Siamese cat. None have a problem operating this door. It is solidly constructed, albeit all plastic, and reliable. If you get the correct version, install it correctly, and aren't a complete and utter moron, I am confident (after my personal experiences) that you will be more than happy with the door. This door is well worth the $75, $100, or $229.00 (version dependent) that is spent on it. It looks clean and works great.
I installed both PetSafe Smart Doors using the optional wall tunnel kit as I placed these in walls rather than doors. Installation is straightforward and cutting the hole in the exterior wall was the most time consuming part as it's real stucco & lath. TIP: use a diamond cutoff wheel in an angle grinder to cut the stucco. Once the hole was cut the rest of the installation took less than 30 minutes. The other house is wood and it took only a few minutes to cut the exterior hole with a Sawzall.
A nice feature of this unit is the solid plastic flap rather than the flexible flaps on others that need regular replacement. The hard plastic flap should last the life of the product but is replaceable if ever needed. The locking feature is the strong point of this unit as only the pets wearing a pendant can enter the door. Other critters such as stray cats, rodents and squirrels can't get in.
Training the dog was fairly easy. To make sure the dog fit through the door before I installed it, I held the flap open and held a treat in my hand and let him follow my hand as I pulled it through the opening. After a little encouragement he was comfortable walking through the door. Once it was installed my wife and I sat on opposite sides of the door and called him with treats ready. We held it open the first few times and then let him push it open himself. We left the door unlocked and after 10 minutes he was running in and out like it wasn't even there. Then we activated the lock so the pendant would unlock it when he approached the door. Depending on how fast the dog is he may get to the door before it's unlocked which it does with a distinct snapping sound. At first the sound startled him but after lightly bumping his head into the locked door a few times (quite funny to watch!), he quickly learned that the snap means it's OK to proceed so he waits for it and tests it with his paw before going through.
At night we remove his collar to keep him inside. He's taken it to it so well that even when the "people door" is open he prefers to use his private entrance.
Our dog is a 16 pound Shih Tzu and, as long as he doesn't get any bigger, the small size unit is perfect. If you're going to place this in a wall you could frame the tunnel yourself but the custom fit one offered will provide much better weather protection and a better looking and more pet friendly entrance.
- easy to install, if you don't mind cutting a giant hole in you door
- locking mechanism is solid
- batteries have lasted a long time 3+ months so far still not giving up
- dog quickly learned how to use
- loud, so make sure door is far away from bedroom
-a small person can fit through the large door.
- sensor works unreliability, sometimes it unlocked when the dog is 5ft away, sometimes it does not for minutes when the dog is right in front of it. That being said the dog just sits by the door until it unlocks. Although I have it a 3 star, this is the best option out there for large dogs.
