  • works like a charm review by Kenf
    5 5 works like a charm

    Startup with our cat took some patience but one day he decided this door was the greatest. That was four years ago. Since that time the door has cycled a few thousand times and never had a problem. We have it wired for 120 house current using the battery as a backup. Raccoons cannot get by it and it has no functional problems. This is without a doubt one of our best purchases and gives us the freedom to know that our indoor-outdoor cat can access the outside anytime he feels like it.

  • Works great review by Nate
    5 4 Works great

    I'm not sure what everyone else's problem is but I've had this door for at least two years and it works great. We were having raccoon problems with them getting in through our other cat door and wreaking havoc in our house. Since I installed this door, we've been raccoon free. The only downside is the size of the dongle. I use it for our cat but he's a Maine Coon so he can handle the dongle, but for a normal sized cat it would be too large to go around its neck.

  • Like having a big hole in your wall review by splicer
    5 1 Like having a big hole in your wall

    This POS is made from the cheapest plastic cr*p they can find. This was obviously never tested before manufacture because it is the flimsiest POS I've ever seen in a pet door, other than a flap.
    The electronics that make the door work are excellent, and the idea is a good one, but the material used to make this is so cheap and flimsy, It's like just having an open hole in the wall!. The weakest point is the hinge at the top, which you can move in and out with your hand even with the door closed and secured. The idea is a good one, but the cheap plastic cr*p used to make it makes it a $300 joke on me. If you could replace the hinge, frame, and door with stronger materials, in that order, I would recommend it. But as of now, it's an invitation to burglars.

  • Not impressed review by Sara
    5 1 Not impressed

    This door seemed like a good idea when we saw it, even though it was very expensive compared to other dog doors we have purchased and installed. My big dog uses it okay. My little dog does not like it because she jumps through the door and it bops her on the hind quarters. Not a big deal with the vinyl doors, but this one is hard plastic. We are going to call it a loss and remove this unfriendly door. Unfortunately for us, we installed it in the wall.

  • LOUD review by Gemini
    5 1 LOUD

    This door makes a very loud noise when it begins to open. Can be heard throughout the house. Could be a misalignment, but is completely useless for the dog or the owners. Very slow to unlock.

  • A waste of money review by Allan
    5 1 A waste of money

    I am very dissatisfied with this product. When my dog is inside the lock will not disengage unless it stands in font of the door for a minimum of 15 seconds. Once outside there is a 2 inch drop between the interior and exterior floor and the lock will not disengage at all unless I hold the dog in the air. I spent over 1.5 hours meticulously fine tuning the sensitivity of the "range" but it did not made any difference. This product was a complete waste of money.

  • good product review by MR Science
    5 4 good product

    The product works. Dog has learned how to use it with some training and patience. Took a couple of days before it became normal to her. 72 pound dog and large door was right choice.

    If you have moderate level carpentry skills product is easy to install.

  • basically good review by jabbur
    5 4 basically good

    Our German shepherd uses the door well. We got it to keep the cat in but let the geriatric diabetic dog come and go as he pleases. The cat has only attempted to follow the dog out once and got bopped on the nose with the swinging door and hasn't attempted it since. She gives it a wide berth! Our only complaint is it seems to go through batteries fast. We purchased the door back in June and we are on our 3rd set of batteries in the door.

  • Cool Concept but unlocking sound scared the dog review by Buddy
    5 3 Cool Concept but unlocking sound scared the dog

    The door is conceptually a great idea but the unlocking sound is loud enough to scare the dog (may not be true for all dogs). We had to disable the auto unlock function in order for the dog to use the door.

  • No Need for Quality Control review by Danielle
    5 1 No Need for Quality Control

    Despite how expensive it was to purchase and install, it didn't work well enough for the dog to use it properly and the cat got outside. I'd be losing more money by returning it. I got a quote from our local handyman for uninstalling the door and installing a new back door and it was way more than the refund. The brilliance in all of this is the company doesn't have to worry about the quality and effectiveness of its product because customers spend less money by just keeping the defective product. For this reason, we won't be returning our pet door. NOT because we found it to be an effective product.

  • Disappointed review by Maltese mommy
    5 1 Disappointed

    We purchased the door for our two Maltese dogs. They have been using dog doors all their lives, so they were used to them. But this one they will not got through unless we push them. The remotes on the collars also were not working when they walked up to them. We eventually had to remove the dog door from the door. I do not recommend this product.

    ed. note. The one training mistake is to push the pets. Please see "Training Your Pet to Use a Pet Door" at

  • Wonderful review by Hygear
    5 5 Wonderful

    This is the 3rd Petsafe Smart Door I have purchased. First one burned in our home in Texas Wild Fires of 2011, second one is in the RV door where we lived 14 months while our new home was being built and the third one is inow n our new home. It is easy for the dogs to use and it is sturdy os I do not worry about other animals entering. Love the door. Third time is the charm! No reflections on the door but I hope I don't have to purchase another one any time soon. This one is here to stay.

  • great idea-needs to be more sturdy review by mickie
    5 3 great idea-needs to be more sturdy

    Love the pet door and the ability to change the locking functions. The door that swings in and out isnt to sturdy and if you have a dog that likes to go in and out in an hurry you will be buying many replacement parts. The toggled pieces that the rod runs thru break easily

Petsafe Electronic Smart Door Installation

Click below to expand:

Second generation, there have been many improvements made since the first generation hit the market. We have hear far less in the way of warranty issues in the past few years.

No, the PetSafe Electronic Smart door works via an RFID key that your pet wears on their collar. The rfid doggie door models are great because the keys tend to be waterproof.

No, this does not have that type of functionality.

No, it is only compatible with the PetSafe Electronic Smart RFID Key.

Mesh screen is usually not strong enough to hold up the pet safe electronic doors as they are much heavier than regular manual doors, so we do not recommend it.

Electronic doors have inner mechanisms that may be subject to water damage when exposed to the elements, so we do not recommend installing it outside. If installed in an exterior door exposed to the elements, we would recommend also installing some sort of rain cap to minimize damage to the door.

The collar key is "water resistant" meaning if your dog runs through a sprinkler or jumps in a puddle, it should hold up just fine. There is a seal around the battery to keep the water out, but if your dog is submerged in water long enough, moisture may get in and cause water damage.

Unfortunately even though they are smart dog doors this smart electronic pet door isn't that smart and they don't have the scheduling or permission capabilities. The features you are looking for can be found in the SureFlap Dual Scan door, however the flap on that door is much smaller.

Generally cats (or any pet without a registered collar key) will not be able to get out by themselves, but you can't say that it is a totally cat proof dog door. However, cats will be cats. If they learn that all they need to do is stick closely to the dog, there is a possibility they will find a way out.

Yes, you can install the PetSafe Smart door in a wall with this wall adapter.

No, the biggest is the pet safe large at 11"w by 16"h.

There are multiple factors that could contribute to the door not opening like drained batteries or faulty wiring. For technical issues we would recommend contacting the manufacturer, PetSafe, directly as they would be better able to assist you regarding the door's inner mechanisms.

The pet safe large is only 11" x 16", so it would not really be suitable for giant breeds.
