I'm concerned about the reviews. Is this the second generation or first generation door?

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

Is this door microchip compatible?

No, the PetSafe Electronic Smart door works with a unique signal from the RFID key that your pet wears on their collar. The RFID doggie door models are great because the keys tend to be waterproof. You can check out our selection of electronic microchip pet doors here.

Does this come with a dog door timer?

No, this does not have that type of functionality.

Is the door compatible with other brand RFID keys or smart dog door collars?

No, only the PetSafe Electronic Smart RFID Key fits doors of this model.

Can this be installed in a screen door?

Mesh screen is usually not strong enough to hold up the PetSafe electronic dog doors as they are much heavier than regular manual doors, so we do not recommend it. Check out our selection of pet doors for screen doors.

Can the Petsafe Smart Door be installed outside?

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 extreme weather damage to the door.

Is the collar smart pet door key waterproof?

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.

Can you set it differently for two animals - i.e. one can go out at night but the other can't?

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 DualScan door.

Will this door keep my cat from going out?

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.

Can this door be installed in a wall?

Yes, you can install the PetSafe Smart door in a wall with this wall adapter.The wall entry uses the same technology and RFID keys. Wall installations have a different cutting template and instructions.

Do they make a Petsafe Electronic Smart Door Extra Large for bigger dogs?

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

Why won't the collar key open the door anymore?

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.

Is this good for giant breeds?

The PetSafe large pet door is only 11" x 16", so it would not really be suitable for giant breeds. High Tech Pet makes electronic pet doors large enough for bigger dogs.
