The SureFlap DualScan Cat Flap

The DualScan Cat Flap controls which animals enter your home as well as which animals exit. In other words, only cats with a microchip that the Sureflap is programmed to open for will be able use the DualScan Cat Flap to come inside AND go outside. It is compatible with all common microchips available in North America (test before installing) and also works with SureFlap RFID tags worn on a collar. However, if your pet is already chipped no need to pay extra for the collar key.

Haven’t had your cat micro-chipped? You should get it done. If you cat is ever lost—and it does happen-- any vet that he/she is brought to will scan for a micro-chip. If a microchip is found, your cat can be brought home safe and sound. If not.... the odds are very slim. Incidentally, if your cat was chipped some time ago, it may have been a 'free floating' one, in which case, the door may not sense it and you may need to get the cat re-chipped. Newer chips have barbs on them and keep in place. Incidentally, SureFlap has an RFID disc available that may be used while you're waiting for the vet. Just don't use the two, chip and disc, together or you'll confuse the pet door.

SureFlap is compatible with the following commonly used microchips in North America:

  • All 15 - digit (FDXB) 
  • All 10 - digit (FDXA) except those with codes starting 000..., 010..., or 020... 
  • All 9 - digit (Avid Secure/Encrypted Chip) 

Check with your vet if you have a question about the type of microchip you are using. The programming process is extremely simple! Your cat walks through, the door senses the microchip and remembers it.

The DualScan Cat Flap can remember up to 32 different pets.There's a special 'safety mode' that can be set to allow entry for indoor-only cats who accidentally get outside through a different door or window. Because this cat flap controls access in both directions, it is also raccoon proof.

The unit is operated by 4 AA Batteries, so there's no need for nearby access to wall power. Typical battery life is 6 months so we recommend changing them twice a year to be safe. When the batteries need to be replaced there is an indicator light that will alert you. The door will continue to operate, however you should replace them as soon as possible because once they run out the door will revert to the locked position, stranding any pets outside. 

In addition to the electronic mode, there is a four-way locking capability that overrides all programming. 

May be installed in a variety of door types, walls, or through single or double pane glass. There are special accessories--wall liners and mounting adapters--to allow installation in walls, single, double or triple-glazed windows. Note that for double-glazed windows the glazier must use a non-metallic spacer bar around the hole for correct performance.

One last caution: For metal skin doors, security doors, metal garage doors, UPVC coated metal doors you will need to purchase the mounting adapter. This is usually required to ensure the pet door functions properly with the initial installation especially when mounted through metal.

    5 5 Sure flap dual scan

    It took some doing, but now I freaking love this door. I bought this door because coyotes have recently become a problem.

    I had to train each cat differently. One was motivated by treats...in and out repeatedly with his favorite food. The other (miss independent), she watched the other one, and figured it out, but totally freaked when the lock mechs activated.

    There is a custom feature that delays the locking mech for ten seconds. I used that, which helped tremendously. She would jump, but would already be out or in. Now, when she hears the door click in the morning, she knows she can go outside, and runs to it! I no longer have to use the ten second delay option.

    Now, if we could only get it with Wi-Fi. Then I could get a text msg from my cats, that they are safely in after the door locks. How cool would that be!

  • sound of unlocking mechanism scares cat review by Emmy

    5 3 sound of unlocking mechanism scares cat

    The door works fine except my cat is scared by the clicking to lock or unlock, therefore I can't get her to go thru the door by herself, which defeats my whole purpose of having the door. i can physically push her through from the inside out, but she refuses to go in from outside. She's not very food oriented so as of yet I haven't tried to bribe her with food.

    I would really like some suggestions because it's starting to look like I spent $200.00 for nothing.

  • Good replacement . . . if your cat isn't skittish review by Hack Attack

    5 4 Good replacement . . . if your cat isn't skittish

    We bought this cat door because it was reportedly raccoon-proof. So far, so good on that count, although the raccoon has done some minor damage. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to implement the feature that opens the door only for our cat based on her embedded chip because she gets freaked out by the clicking sound that's made when the flap is released. Also, she's scared by the tunnel when coming in from outside (it goes through our garage wall and is rather long). Overall, it's a great cat door, especially if your cat isn't skittish..

    I am so happy with my SureFlap Dual Scan Cat Flap. With the SureFlap, my little girl "Paddington Bear" can now come and go as she pleases without me having to manually lock and unlock the cat flap. I highly recommend this product..
