There is no longer any need to worry about stray cats, raccoons, or the safety of multiple cats. With RFID sensing technology, this Cat Mate selective door only opens for cats who have programmed electronic ID collar keys. It allows you to program up to eight different cats on a timer system while allowing you to choose which cats can enter or exit through the door. If you want to keep one cat inside all day while giving access to and from the door for another pet during that same time period, this door will do that for you! Each cat has its own personal RFID collar key whose information programs into the door to meet their individual needs. This RFID door is an innovative solution for most pet management. With an LCD screen on the top of the inside frame, you're able to see the current time, the location of up to three cats, and at what time your cat entered or exited the house.
Please Note: This door does not work for microchips. The RFID collar keys are necessary for the door to function.

For Wood Doors:
Step 1: Place the exterior frame in the desired position on the door. We recommend the bottom of the flap to be installed approximately 6” above the ground for utmost comfort.
Step 2: Trace a line around the flap opening. Use an electronic jigsaw to cut 3/16” outside the line.
Step 3: Determine the thickness of the door panel to determine required screw length.
Step 4: Hold the interior and exterior frame in position and mark the two screw holes.
Step 5: Remove the frames and drill screw holes in the panels to ¼” diameter.
Step 6: Position the interior frame on the inside of door and screw exterior frame to it by using appropriate screws for door thickness. (If necessary, cut supplied screws to length). Fit in the two screw caps.
Step 7: Remove batteries for at least two minutes after installation to allow the cat flap to retune itself to its new location for optimal performance.
For Metal Doors:
Step 1: Place the exterior frame in desired position on the door. We recommend the bottom of the flap to be installed approximately 6” above the ground for utmost comfort.
Step 2: Trace a line around the OUTSIDE of the frame. Use an electronic jigsaw to cut ½” INSIDE the line. Be careful to cut the hole square to the door, particularly with thicker doors. Ensure that the interior frame is free fitting in the hole.
Step 3: Position the interior frame on the inside of door and screw exterior frame to it by using appropriate screws for door thickness. (If necessary, cut supplied screws to length). Fit in the two screw caps.
Step 4: Remove batteries for at least two minutes after installation to allow the cat flap to retune itself to its new location for optimal performance.
Fitting RFID Keys on Collars:
If desired, record your cat’s details on the ID disc label by writing on the label in pen and sticking the clear waterproof cover over the writing.
Please Note: Attach the Disc directly to the collar, NOT from a ring attached to the collar. Any other metal will interfere with the sensing system on the door. This way it is as high as possible and parallel to flap. We recommend the use of a fabric collar without large metal attachments, like other ID tags, etc.
