Product Details


The SureFlap Microchip Connect Pet Door is the most innovative microchip pet door on the market for cats and small dogs. Paired with a Hub, the SureFlap pet door pet hub feature allows you to control various features of the door straight from the app on your phone, tablet, or PC, from any location. It utilizes reliable microchip sensing technology to ensure that no raccoons or other unwanted critters gain access to your home. The Hub must be plugged into your WiFi router. With the technological advantages of this SureFlap Pet Door Connect, your pet's safety is optimized to the maximum.

 

Features of the SureFlap Connect App:

    • Remotely lock or unlock the door at any time.
    • Set a curfew mode and curfew times on your flap opening to keep your pets inside during a set time period, automatically locking and unlocking at a specified time.
    • Monitor your pet's activity over time.
    • Receive notifications when your pet uses the door.
    • Share app access with friends or pet sitters.

 

Features of the Door:

    • Installs in 0" to 2-3/4" thick doors. For metal skin doors, security doors, metal garage doors, UPVC coated metal doors, and non-tempered glass, we recommend purchasing this mounting adapter to prevent interference.
    • For wall installations, pre-made tunnel extenders are recommended or you can purchase a pet door and tunnel kit.
    • Clear, rigid acrylic flap is lined with brush weatherstripping for weather resistance. 
    • Secure pet door scans your pet's embedded microchip when they enter the pet door from the outside. If your pet is not yet microchipped, you can use the included collar key until you make the trip to the vet.
    • Programs up to 32 microchips/RFID collar keys. You can purchase additional RFID collar keys if necessary. One included with purchase.
    • The battery-powered door uses four C batteries that last around 6 months.
    • When batteries are low, an indicator light flashes every 5 seconds. Replace the batteries when this light is flashing. When the batteries die, the door defaults to the locked position, which could leave cats stuck outside.
    • Includes an electronic override lock built into the LCD screen, allowing you to stop pets from leaving or entering the home at any time. 
    • If a pet happens to be outside when curfew mode is on and the door is locked, they can still get in with the pet's microchip sensing but other critters can’t.

 

Raccoon Mode:

Custom Mode 5 is the raccoon mode, making this door a raccoon-resistant cat door. As soon as the sensors detect an animal's head in the tunnel of the pet door, the door scans to read for a microchip. If the animal is not one whose chip has been programmed to trigger the door, the two locks on the exterior of the door are activated for added security. At this point, the unit will keep scanning for a microchip, and the exterior locks will remain engaged until approximately 10 seconds after the intruder animal has moved away from the door.  

Benefits:

    • Sure Petcare app SureFlap microchip cat flap controlled dog door makes this the easiest pet door to manage.
    • SureFlap hub app features make working and traveling easier for pet owners.
    • Ensures that your pet has the highest level of safety with curfew mode.
    • Microchip reader technology is great for pets who refuse to wear collars.

Installation Instructions

Installing the SureFlap Microchip Pet Door in a Door




Installing the SureFlap Door Through a Wall (tunnel kit sold separately)




Training Sessions 


Getting Started: Some pets will take longer than others to acclimate to their new door, so patience is key! Never push or shove your pet through the door (this will only develop negative feelings). Instead, follow these training tips + tricks to help introduce your pet to the door gradually.


Limit training sessions to no more than 10 minutes at a time. Two well spaced out sessions per day should be the maximum.


Hold the flap all the way open for your pet at first; then a little less each subsequent time so your pet learns to push through on their own. Stay consistent with verbal encouragement and treats for best results.


 


Teaching Your Cat to Use Their Door


Step One: Introduce your cat to the door by putting your hand through it so they know how it works. Have them inspect the new cat flap to get used to the look and smell (this is a great time to program your cat’s microchip!).  


Tip: You can wipe your cat’s face or body with a cloth and wipe the door with the same cloth to give it a more familiar scent. 


Step Two: Some cat doors make a slight clicking noise when opening and closing which can scare timid cats. Try manually opening and shutting the flap slowly to familiarize your cat with this noise. 


Step Three: Get your kitty’s favorite treats or toy ready! Start by using a treat to encourage your cat through while holding the flap open for them. Once they are comfortable, start lowering the flap on them as they walk through for their treat.


Tip: Be sure to train your cat using the actual door height - meaning raise the door enough so it resembles how high it will be once installed.


Tip: If you have a door with non-removable magnets, putting some painter’s tape over the magnets can help decrease the magnet attraction strength temporarily for training purposes.


Step Four: Always make sure to reward your cat with praise (and maybe another treat) when they pass through the door.  Remember: training can take a considerable amount of time. There is no standard practice as every cat is unique.


 


Quick Tips


- For especially timid cats, temporarily tape it up out of the way while they get used to the idea of walking through the tunnel.



- Clear flaps may confuse pets as they might think the flap is a window. Try putting a piece of masking tape on the clear flap to distinguish it from a window and reinforce to your pet its use as a door.



- Magnetic and weighted flaps have additional weight which may be difficult for your pet to push through. Fix this problem by gently pushing the door to assist your pet as they go through or removing the magnet until your pet gets used to the full weight of the door on their own.



- If you plan on installing more than one pet door, use the same flap if possible for consistency.



- Electronic flaps make a small clicking noise when the flap is activated that may frighten timid pets. The best way to remedy this problem is to positively reinforce this sound in your pet’s mind.


- Praise your pet when they come near the door and hear the activation noise.


- If this does not work, disable the electronics with “training mode” and have your pet use the door manually for a week or so while getting acquainted with the door.


- Consistency is key! Stay consistent both in your training methods and your choice of pet doors. If you have multiple pets the first to learn will often demonstrate  for the others!



- When your first lock the flap shut, introduce your pet slowly rather than letting them “learn the hard way” by running into it.

Getting Started

FAQ

Are there any larger sizes for taller dogs?

Unfortunately, this is the largest microchip door size. For larger pets, they will have to wear a collar key.

What is 'raccoon mode'?

Raccoon mode is an additional security method. When it is activated, sensors will detect an animal's head in the tunnel and scan to read for a chip. If the animal does not have a chip programmed to the door, two locks are activated. These exterior locks are engaged until 10 seconds after the intruder leaves. These locks prevent a raccoon from pushing through the door into the house. Or pulling the door backward to get in.

Will this door open from the inside as well for a pet wearing a chip or collar key?

No. The SureFlap Pet Door will only read the signal from one direction, the outside. Any pet can leave, but access is controlled in terms of who can enter. For two way control, take a look at the SureFlap Dualscan.

How quickly does the flap close after my cat goes through?

The flap will close as soon as your pet's body is through the door. The flap will swing shut and lock via tabs, which takes a few seconds.

If my batteries die do I have to re-program the collar keys and microchips?

No, the chips and collar keys should still be programmed in the door's memory.

Can you say this is a totally raccoon proof cat door, like 100%?

There really isn't a door that can be said is 100%, because they could rip the door out all together to get in. Although that would take a pretty tough raccoon to do that.

If I buy more than one door, do my pets have to wear multiple collar keys or chips to use them all?

No, you can program one collar key or chip to multiple doors and your pet will still be able to use each door. Each door can program up to 32 different pets.

Is there a security cover for this door?

There is no security cover for this as the different entry modes prohibit unwanted intruders, locking the rigid flap. The tabs and weather stripping also keep the your home sealed from weather.

Can I lock this so my pets can't go outside even with a chip or collar key?

Yes there are different modes you can customize to restrict access. There is also a curfew mode, preventing a cat or dog to exit or entering during a time you set.

How do I know if my cat has a microchip?

Your vet should be able to identify whether your cat has a chip embedded, as well as letting you know if that microchip works with this door.

Will this tell me if my cat is inside or outside?

No, there is not function to let you know whether your pet is inside or outside.

Raccoon mode works!

We bought this door specifically to keep raccoons out of the barn and away from our cat's food. The instructions for how to turn raccoon mode on are not included in the manual and are very hard to find on Sureflap's website. Here is the text from the SureFlap FAQ "The is an intruder animal coming through my SureFlap Microchip Pet Door" Set your pet door to Custom Mode 5. This mode is for added protection against intruders. Once Custom Mode 5 has been activated, as soon as a non-programmed animal breaks the beam of light in the tunnel, the two external locks will pop up to prevent them from gaining entry. Press and hold the "Fn" (Function) button for 10 seconds. You will need to use a pen or pencil as the button is slightly recessed. The custom mode display will appear on the LCD screen showing C00. To select Custom Mode 5, use the button one (arrows) or two (clock) to cycle through the numbers until the display shows C05. Press button five (cats face) to select the custom mode and store it into memory. Once stored, the indicator light will turn green for a couple seconds. Our door has been installed for 3 nights now and raccoons have come by multiple times but have not gotten in. Last night a pair of them were at the door and did not get in! The clicking sound of the door did startle our cat and I was afraid it was going to take a while for him to learn how to use it it but he went through on his own the same day we installed it.

Great Product

The Sureflap is a great quality electronic door. The connect allows me to set curfew and control the door from an app on my smart phone which is great for when I am at work. I wish it came in a larger size for my bigger dogs, but for the cats I could not be happier. It keeps out the critters and allows my cats in and out only. Overall this is a solid door and I would definitely recommend it.
