The SureFlap Microchip Pet Door identifies your pet by using its existing unique identification microchip or RFID collar tag (one tag supplied with the product), unlocking only for your pet and leaving intruder animals at the door. The SureFlap pet door is suitable for multi-pet households as it can store up to 32 pets in its memory. The SureFlap Microchip Pet Door is designed for large cats and small dogs. To fit through the pet door, your pet's shoulders should ideally be no wider than 6 and a half inches and the circumference of their waistline at its widest point should be no more than 20 and a quarter inches. The dimensions of the flap (the smallest area your pet will need to pass through) is 7\" (w) x 6.69\" (h). The size of the hole required to install the pet door is 8.15\" (w) x 9.21\" (h). The SureFlap Microchip Pet Door is programmed at the touch of a button and it can be installed in doors, windows and walls. A SureFlap Pet Door Mounting Adaptor is required for glass installations and one or more SureFlap Pet Door Tunnel Extenders may be required for wall installations. For metal skin doors, security doors, metal garage doors, and UPVC coated metal doors the mounting adaptor might be required if the pet door is not functioning properly with the initial installation. The SureFlap Microchip Pet Door is battery powered using 4 C cell batteries which last up to a year with normal use. Batteries are not included with the product. When the batteries start to run low, an indicator light will flash. The SureFlap Microchip Pet Door has been tested on raccoons in a zoo environment. During these tests, the raccoons were not able to gain access.

How this door works: The most important thing to understand is that this door is meant to restrict which pet can come *in*. With this door, all pets can get out (but read on!). The default setting is that only allowed pets can come in and everyone can go out. The way it works is that there is a 'tunnel' facing the outside. When a pet sticks her head in the tunnel, sensors in the tunnel attempts to read the pet's chip or pendant. If it can, it unlocks the door so that the pet can come in. There are other modes for this door (like locking it completely or putting it on a timer), but none of these modes change the basic behavior of the door. The controls for the door are meant to be on the inside (and the tunnel on the outside). If you are looking for a door to not let some of your pets go out, then this is not your door OR you will need to use the door in a way it was not intended to be used (like I'm doing). Concretely, that means that you will have to install the door the 'wrong' way'. That is with the tunnel facing inside and the controls on the outside. To be as clear as I can be: regardless of how you install it, the door can filter only one way through, it cannot filter both ways. You can lock one way completely (or both ways completely) but you can filter only one way.
How I am using it: I have a cat enclosure in my backyard. All of my cats are allowed in the enclosure (through an non-restrictive pet door in my house). Now some of my cats are senior cats and they are allowed outside of the enclosure. So I wanted a cat door that would let only my senior cats out. So I am using this door completely outside of its intended use. I installed it in the frame of the enclosure (so the whole door is outside) with the tunnel facing inside the enclosure and the controls on the outside of the enclosure (see picture). This way, only allowed cats can get out of the enclosure. I was really worried about rain messing up the electronics so I protected the control side of the door with a little roof (see picture). I also taped over the battery compartments on each side as well as tape some heavy duty plastic over the controls. It has rained a lot this winter and the door still works great. But the enclosure is somewhat protected as it stands partly under an upper deck. I'm not sure how well the door would work if it was fully exposed to the elements.
How it performs: I'm really impressed with it. Setting it up is a breeze. It does a great job at recognizing my pets' chips. It also comes with one pendant that I use to make sure the door still works. It looks to be really sturdy too. I've been using it for 3 months and it has been working flawlessly. My senior cats love it and the kittens can't get out. Even my 'Houdini' kitten has not figured out how to defeat it to get out. And if the kittens ever make it out then I have the peace of mind that they can come back in easily.
This door was worth every penny!
I now have a useless piece of plastic in my door which I can only use in one of the "No exit" modes (completely obviating the point which is to allow my dog and cat to go outside the house to do their business while we're sleeping).
As others have pointed out, because the access control is only enforced when something tries to make the door swing inward. The raccoons have learned to lever the bottom of the door flap outward. This is allowed by the design whenever the door is operating in a mode than allows your pet to exit.
UPDATE: We purchased our Pet Door in November of 2014 and it has been working perfectly, 24/7, since then. But recently the door stopped operating. So I emailed the Sure Flap customer service department for advice on how to fix it and they immediately responded that they would send us a brand new door since we were still under warranty. We installed the new door and all is well. I so appreciated the terrific customer service and would now (more than ever!) recommend this product and this company.
