The SureFlap Pet Door works with all identification microchips supplied by your vet and SureFlap RFID collar tags.

SureFlap Microchip Pet Door

The largest microchip pet door available, this pet door has a generous 7”x7” flap size to fit even large cats and small dogs. Control who enters your home, and prevent other critters from coming inside including those smart raccoons. Includes a timer so you can keep your pets in or out at certain times of the day, like bedtime! The SureFlap Pet Door works with all identification microchips worldwide and SureFlap RFID collar tags, but for peace of mind, you can email/chat/call us with your chip number and we can verify the chip's compatibility for you.

Features of the Microchip Pet Door

  • Flap is clear, rigid plastic that is surrounded with fuzzy weather stripping to prevent drafts.
  • Installs in doors 0-2 ¾” thick. For metal skin doors, security doors, metal garage doors, and UPVC coated metal doors we recommend purchasing this mounting adapter to prevent interference.
  • The pet door scans your pet’s embedded chip used for identification to unlock only when they are present (chip is not included with the door, it must be purchased from your vet and implanted at a scheduled office visit).  If your pet is not yet microchipped, you can use the included collar key until you make the trip to the vet!
  • Simple controls allow you to take advantage of standard 4-way locking settings: locked, unlocked, in-only and out-only.
  • Curfew mode allows you to set the pet door to lock and unlock at certain times of day, for example in order to keep your pet indoors at night.
  • If you wish to use this pet door as a normal manual flap, without entry control, you can set it up to function without the microchip or collar key. Doing this is also helpful for timid animals when they are learning to use the pet door, as the electronics do make a slight noise when unlocking.
  • Powered by 4 C batteries, which can last about 6 months depending upon usage. A low battery indicator light will blink red when the batteries need to be changed. If power is lost, the pet door will revert to the locked position, potentially locking any pets outside. So make sure that you change them as soon as possible!
  • You can program up to 32 different pets.
  • 3 year warranty with excellent technical support.

Raccoon Mode

 When custom mode 5 has been activated, as soon as the sensors detect an animal’s head in the tunnel of the product, it scans to read the animal’s chip. If the animal is not one whose identity is stored in the door’s memory, 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. When the exterior locks are engaged it makes it impossible for the raccoon to open the door towards them in order to get in. The interior locks prevent the raccoon from pushing through the door into the house – the combination of the two sets of locks have proved impenetrable to raccoons in our product testing.

Reasons to Choose a Microchip Door

  • If you have critters outside that you want to prevent from following your dog or cat indoors, the SureFlap Microchip Pet Door will get the job done. Any animal will be able to exit through the pet door, but only those you’ve programmed into the pet door will be able to enter!
  • Electronic pet doors are perfect for windy areas, because once in closed position the wind will not be able to blow the flap open.
  • Using a microchip as the access key is perfect for pets that lose collars or simply refuse to wear them.
  • Having a larger flap than typical microchip doors allows for use by even the biggest cats and small dogs.

*RACCOON MODE: When custom mode 5 has been activated, as soon as the sensors detect an animal’s head in the tunnel of the product, it scans to read the animal’s chip. If the animal is not one whose identity is stored in the door’s memory, 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. When the exterior locks are engaged it makes it impossible for the raccoon to open the door towards them in order to get in. The interior locks prevent the raccoon from pushing through the door into the house – the combination of the two sets of locks have proved impenetrable to raccoons in our product testing.  This feature is only offered with the Sure Flap Pet Door and Pet Door Connect.

The only time that we would not recommend engaging this custom mode is if the pet tends to play with the flap by batting it away from them whilst sitting in the house. If the flap is batted far enough open into the tunnel that it triggers the sensors, the secondary locks would engage and when the flap closed the door would be locked in both directions for a period of 10 seconds or so. This makes the pet door raccoon resistant.

  • Chip reader too close to Door to open for Chihuahua review by Laura S
    5 3 Chip reader too close to Door to open for Chihuahua

    The chip reader is too far from where the chips are typically placed in small dogs. My very small Chihuahua can nearly climb into it pushing on the door with his nose & the door still doesn't unlock unless I open the door for him & when his head is half way through it will finally read his chip & unlock. I wonder if the wall extender moves the chip reader or not. I purchased the wall extender but didn't need it for the installation (the wall wasn't that wide) & just returned it when I figured out this problem, However I don't know if the wall extender actually moves the chip reader further from the door or not. Anyone know the answer?

  • Fantastic review by Jeff
    5 5 Fantastic

    This pet door is absolutely the best thing ever. We had a problem with our Jack Russell going out into the backyard to bark at every possum, crow, cat, or other critter, all night long. We got tired of having to block the conventional doggie door before going to bed at night, and even more tired of having to get up and open it on the mornings we wanted to sleep in.
    I ordered this door and it was very easy to install. Our dog has a microchip, and the door "learned" the chip on the first try, and we've never had a problem since. It took 2 or 3 tries for our dog to learn to wait a half second for the door to unlock when coming in, but now she does it as second nature.
    We also have rats in our neighborhood, and this has kept them out as well (yes, they were coming in through our old doggie door too!)
    Finally, the people handling the e-mails and questions at have been great to work with. I truly wish every company had the fantastic customer care I have received.

  • Works as described review by Mounir
    5 4 Works as described

    I've had the door for a few days now, so far so good. The only reason i didn't go 5 stars is the fact that the prongs stick out and a persuasive racoon could beat it. Maybe not. I wish the the locking prongs were made to go inside the door from the bottom or sides so there will be nothing for an intruder to push on.
    Great door though.

  • You might want to consider another door review by Chris
    5 2 You might want to consider another door

    While I have had this door since the end of 2016 and for the most part it has done it's job, i would not buy it again, as it does not function as described.

    The design itself is overall good, except for the locking feature, which I think is poorly designed. The locks go on the outside and inside of the door (either side of it), but a better way to make this door function as described, would be to have the locking mechanism go into the door.

    The reason why I give this door a poor rating, is simply because it states that it will keep out unwanted intruders, however, for the most part, it has functioned as described, unfortunately, it does not keep them all out.

    We have had a raccoon enter multiple times, even though i have it on Custom 5, and also used the Curfew mode on top of that, yet a raccoon still makes its way into the door.

    I have finally seen it with my own eyes, and this raccoon is so adamant on getting through the door, it used both front claws and rear claws to pull the door. The combination of the claws managed to push one of the buttons down while simultaneously pull the edge of the door, then was able to work on the other.

    It would be nice if these companies stand by their guarantee, but I wasted $300.00 on a door that does not function as described, and I have tried multiple times on the available functions of the door with no success.

    5 5 Easy to use.

    I finally got tired of having raccoons as regular visitors in my house, coming in nearly every night through the pet door to eat my cats' food. Finally got the microchip door and it's working like a charm. Hardest part is getting the cats to learn how to use it and not get scared by the sound of the door unlocking. But they'll get there. And I'm enjoying not having additional wildlife in my house!

    I had a simple cat door before this that raccoons kept using. I went on this website to ask for recommendations and the chat staff was so helpful! They were able to recommend a few options for me and answered all my questions. After using this cat door for a few months, I haven't had any raccoons break in yet!

  • Good Solution review by Leslie
    5 4 Good Solution

    I have a unique space that requires that the only place I can install a pet door is into a glass storm door. After lots of research i bought this one, bought a new piece of untempered single pane glass for the door, and then had the hole cut. (Tempered glass can't be cut and a door needs to be tempered glass). The glass supplier then tempered the glass, and installed the pet door. Two glass fabricators didn't have a tool large enough to cut the round hole for the door. One shop helped me and had their supplier make the cut. It finally all worked out.

    The door works beautifully. With a little bit of training and persuasion the cat can use it quickly and easily - sometimes like a bullet shooting through the door. The chip reader works really fast. Sometimes my cat comes running up and just dives through the door.

    There are two difficulties with her use of the door: The door is a little bit high for my cat even though she is tall. The bottom of the flap is 8" off the floor on the inside and 12" off the stair landing on the outside. The hole for the door had to be cut above the bottom of the glass to make sure the glass is strong enough. The cat is tall so she can make it by getting her front legs in and using them to pull her back legs in. No big deal. The width of the door is also a bit snug for her body. Again, cats are agile, so it is no big deal. I would not want the bigger door.

    Both the cat and I love the door!

  • Unit stops working in humid weather. Rust happens. review by Stanolee
    5 2 Unit stops working in humid weather. Rust happens.

    This door is great when it works. But I've had two of them in a two year period, and both failed. The problem (on the second one at least) is that the cheap battery contacts will rust inside the battery compartment if you live in a humid place (I live in Florida). Once rust happens, contact is lost, and the battery won't work, even if it's a good battery. The good news is, you can take the unit apart and file the rust off, and it should work again (which is a pain, but better than spending another $230). Just make sure to check that your door is working before you go out of town, or you will come back to a very unhappy pet.

  • great pet door review by Vickie
    5 5 great pet door

    Going on 1 year with sure-flap pet door, and it's been great. We have one 9 pound part-chihuahua dog, and it took her about a week and a bunch of treats to get used to the door. But now she's in and out, the carpet stays clean, and the possums and raccoons have never gotten in.

    Our door is in the back of our slider, with a dual glazed panel above. Looks good. The batteries are still originals, a surprise to me.

    The only odd happening was this spring, I kept hearing the door latches operating. I finally found a large bug flying around the door, and when it entered the tunnel it broke the sight eyes, causing the door to lock. Cleaning and wiping the exterior top frame with bug spray stopped it.

    We love the sure flap, solved our problems.

    5 5 I'm Stress free!

    I love the microchip/timer aspect. I can leave for work early, and they can't go out until the timer unlocks. And when I work late at night, they are in. Well, mostly..seems they've figured out what time they get locked in, so they stay out. Brats! So I got a motion sensor aimed at their pet door, so I know which one is in, and who is still out. Now, if you could only lock it remotely! That'd teach 'em!! Awesome door! Thanks!!!!

  • Flap size is too small review by Polly
    5 2 Flap size is too small

    Purchased over a year ago. Works great at keeping other cats out of the house. Unfortunately my boy is tall and the opening on our unit is only five inches tall so he has to shimmy in and out and has become resistant to using it. I would really like to see this company make a much taller door. This new model is still only 7 inches tall in the flap. Also be sure to note that your kitty may need a platform outside if you install this in a window and the sill is not deep enough for him/her to stand on.

    We've had a bit of a problem with her getting to like going
    through it , but it's coming...
    the instructions for the different ways it can be used could be a little more clear , but with a little fiddling and experimenting we got it no problem.

    5 5 Love this door!

    My husband put it in the wall, under a window going out to the patio. Only took a few hours and the 2 doxies mastered it! We had to place a little ramp on the outside since there was a little step down...but that was easy to remedy. Love the fact that they can go out whenever the timer set on the door says they can. It has worked with the locking and timing coded in perfectly! So glad we found this door! Would certainly recommend it!

  • Sureflap door is NOT raccoon proof review by aus10quinn
    5 3 Sureflap door is NOT raccoon proof

    This door only locks coming IN. Raccoons easily grab the door and PULL it open--and waltz right in. I discovered this first hand last night! You can find Youtube videos of a raccoon--and even another cat--manipulating the door outward such they can enter.
    There is a version that requires chip activation for the door to operate in both directions (I wish I had realized that when I ordered mine!)

    This is a big improvement over the older model, which the raccoons had grown wise to. The new design completely foils the raccoons and yet our kitty can come and go at will. It took a few days for her to get used to being scanned in both directions (its a little easier coming in, than going out, but she figured it out soon enough and all our problems are solved. Thanks to Sureflap for replacing the old one, for free, and providing one that really works. We're so glad to have that problem solved!! Great product, great company.

    5 5 awesome dog door

    After a lot of research, we invested the money for this dog door because it looked like the only reasonable solution in a raccoon-filled area. I spent an afternoon installing it. It was easy to do and I don't have a lot of DIY experience; the crucial part is having good tools to cut a hole in your wall! I needed 2 tunnel extenders. We've had the door for 4 months now.The whole thing is great and our 14 lb. dog learned to use it pretty quickly. She used to pee in the house sometimes when being alone all day, but she never does any more, which was the goal. Hooray!

  • Kept the raccoons out review by Laura
    5 5 Kept the raccoons out

    I purchased this pet door for the primary reason of keeping the raccoons out of my house. I witnessed first hand that it has worked. I only have one cat. He was timid at first with the clicking sound, but managed to get in and out the door within the first day. My cat is nearly 20 lbs, so I am glad I went with the larger "pet" door and not the "cat" door. We had initial difficulty with the chip reading as my door is metal. Before buying the adaptor and making a bigger hole in the door, we designed and created a wooden box/tunnel that is attached to the door and the pet door is installed at the end of the box. This has worked, however, we cannot use the door an a primary entry. I am lucky to have a second entry near the door so it is not much of an inconvenience. I went ahead and bought the adaptor but have not installed it as my set up seems to be working just fine.

    You won't regret getting this. Makes life so simple! I have two cats. I was super nervous about training them to use it. One learned it instantly. The second cat took until end of the first day. It's so well designed and easy to use. Great customer service if you have questions. One of my cats is almost 20 lbs and I was worried he wouldn't fit, but he does. I used the tags, but then got the cats micro-chipped, which is way better. I would never not use this product. Can't imagine life without it now.

    5 5 Works perfectly

    I have had at least three different pet doors over the years and this one is by far the best. It has worked flawlessly from the start and our three cats love it. We were having a real problem with neighborhood cats getting in and devouring the cat food when we would leave for the weekend. That problem is completely solved. And the big orange cat that would continuously harass our cats and even chase them in through the old door? Well, the first time he tried to chase one through and smashed up against the door he went howling home and hasn't tried again. No longer have to worry about lost collars as with the old magnetic key doors which we had given up on.

  • Overall a good buy review by Sharon and Mike
    5 4 Overall a good buy

    We purchased this door and installed it ourselves, which was more difficult than expected as our garage access door has a thin layer of metal on both sides that made it hard to cut.. We HIGHLY recommend that if installing yourself, take the door off the hinges and lay flat to cut. The first door we ordered worked for a few days but quit allowing access with the tag. I tried re programming it several times with no success. So we calked the manufacturer at which point, they immediately shipped out a replacement unit. VERY impressed with their response on this. The second door has worked well, however, our cat goes through the door so gingerly at times that he must be leaving it ajar, at which point a raccoon has been able to fain access to the cat feeder and clean him out. So we are thinking of putting a camera on the door yo find out exactly what is occurring. We were hoping for a more secure experience which would put me more at ease when we travel. As it is, I still have you gave someone stop by and check on him in case he gets followed in and the food cleaned out.

    5 4 Works Great!

    This product works great, just as advertised! It was easy to program, and my cats learned how to use it in about a week. No problems reading their microchips.

    However, there are plenty of things around to hunt, and the cats have used the opportunity to bring in every manner of creature small enough for them to catch, alive or dead. Rodents, amphibians, and birds are among the prey. The final straw for me was discovering a live and healthy mouse living in the kitchen. I'm sure my cats were intent on establishing a reproducing mouse population inside the house that they could hunt all winter. For now, I've revoked their cat door privileges until I can figure out a way to get them to leave their catch outdoors.

  • It works as advertised review by John P
    5 5 It works as advertised

    After being surprised one night by a pair of raccoons in my kitchen, I bought this door to keep the pesky raccoons out. I installed it at the back of the house through a wall. Now, my cat can come and go during the day and is locked in at night using the curfew mode. I programmed it to lock at 7 p.m. and open at 6 a.m. so no raccoons can come in while we are sleeping. It works with the implanted chip in our cat's neck and only lets him in or out, thus, it also keeps the other neighborhood cats out of our kitchen. It took a little time for my cat to get used to the noise of the opening - but she learned quickly. The door is utterly wonderful and works very well. It works as advertised; it keeps raccoons out and my cat can pass freely in and out. It is absolutely the best thing we have purchased recently. I highly recommend this product!

    I installed the pet door on my tack room door in the barn. I have two barn kittens I didn't want the raccoons and coyotes to get. I have it set to read their microchips.

    I have three of these doors, two in my home (front and back of the house) and one in my vacation home. They are absolutely wonderful and work very well. My puppy adores the independence it gives him. Look, I have seen the reviews that say people have had problems with these doors. Well, maybe so, but I have three of them and they are all working perfectly. I can program it to lock at 10 p.m. and open at 7 a.m. so no racoons come in when my pup is asleep, I can lock it to to allow him go in only, or to go out only, all kinds of things. I can allow the older puppy to go out the back but not the younger one. It provides sooo much convenience. Get it!

    This door works good, lets the dogs in & out easily. Micro chip part doesn't work that well, chip on the dog is too far back to let the door register it. Get the rfid collar chip. That's the only reason why I gave 4 stars.

    The lock part is great. We can lock at night then have it unlock in the morning. Great function. One dog doesn't like the clicking noise of the door unlocking, but is getting used to it. All in all great door.

    The door is perfect for our cat. We actually installed ours in a window. We used plywood, painted it and cut a hole for the door. Aligned the window panes, slid the window on top inserted some weather stripping. The window is low to the ground and under our covered patio. Couldn't be better. I had our cat chipped, the unit was simple to sync to her chip. Just a treat on the inside of the unit before installation. We then used a straw to train our cat. I propped the window up with a full sized straw. Then I began to shorten the straw for her to have to push on the door more and more. It worked! By the end of 2 weeks she was on her own. We are now worry free!

  • Basically a very good product review by NancyM123
    5 4 Basically a very good product

    I am using this product for a very different use from most people. I have two cats: one hoovers all the food, and the other picks at her food. I have installed the Microchip door into a cabinet. This way, I have allowed access to only the picky eater. She now can free feed all day without her sister eating all her food.

    The door is now working very well. It failed the first day I installed it (the screen went blank and the door locked). Unfortunately, the cat was inside the cabinet when this happened and she was locked in. I took out the batteries and then reinstalled them and the door has been working perfectly since then.

    I am not clear at all why the manufacturers chose to make the door lock when the batteries die. This will lock your cats outside if and when this happens. If I were designing this door, I would make the default in the unlocked position. That way, if the batteries fail, the cats can still get in the house.

    Overall, I am very happy with the functioning of the door. I just would like the next generation of doors to be designed a bit differently.

  • Keeping the raccoons out! review by vtgcat
    5 5 Keeping the raccoons out!

    I bought this door after a family of raccoons decided my home was the perfect "dining out" spot. Now, my cats can come and go during the day and are locked in at night using the curfew mode. If one of my cats doesn't make it in by dinner time - a rarity - they can still come in at will but the other critters are kept out. I can even see where the raccoons have tried to get in as their paw prints are all over the outside of the door. It took a little time for the cats to get used to the noise of the opening - but they all learned quickly.

  • Works, but cats may be wary review by 3 Cats
    5 4 Works, but cats may be wary

    The door works as advertised. Keeps raccoons out. Cats can pass freely in and out. I have 1 cat with the imbedded chip and 2 without (so they wear the tag on their collars). The door works for all of them. The only two problems I have are: 1) one of the cats gets scared of the clicking sound of the door he only leaves out of it but doesn't use it to return (so try to train them young with the door); and 2) the battery life could be improved.

  • changed our life review by smaragd
    5 5 changed our life

    We have a large cat that loves to go outside whenever he wants. He used to wake us up in the middle of the night to go outside since he hates to use litter boxes. Our sleep was always interrupted. Now, we are both happy! Our cat has the run of the neighborhood, has lost weight, and is in the best shape of his life. It also keeps the other neighborhood cats and raccoons out of our kitchen. Absolutely the best thing we have purchased recently. It works with the implanted chip in our cat's neck and only lets him in or out.

    This flap works well. Installation was simple and straight forward. My Boston Terrier took to the door easily. My 12 yr old tabby cat does not like the noise of the actuator and uses the door begrudgingly.

  • Work Beautiful happy with the product review by MauiWillie
    5 5 Work Beautiful happy with the product

    I bought two Sureflap Microchip Pet Doors; one for the home to the garage and a second for the garage to the outside. One install was on a door and the other was through the house wall to the garage. I also bought and used the Tunnel Extender which easily finished off that pet door installation. The product is well designed, easy to program, and allows me to prohibit my cat from leaving my home from 6 Pm to 6 Am. This cuts down on the exposure of my cat to outside varmints and some troublesome stray cats which travel during the night. My cat easily adapted to the Sureflap flap design without any major problems. The noise at the latching of the flap doesn't seem to bother him; on the contrary, he seems to happily listen for it in the morning so he knows he can easily leave my bed and slip outside before breakfast.

  • Works great review by Kate
    5 5 Works great

    I replaced another cat door that used a disc placed on the cat's collar. Trouble was my cat kept losing her collar and the discs were $10 each. This door works great with the chips already embedded in both of my cats. I've had it about 6 months and have experienced no problems.

  • Excellent review by Karen
    5 4 Excellent

    We were seeking a way to give our two cats less dependency on us and this has achieved that. Initially, we had some difficulty getting the microchip to pick up but I called and they were helpful in resetting it. These codes, however, could be included in the book. Our only complaint is that we have now had little gifts brought home by one of our two cats--frogs and a bird--but that is the price we pay for the greater freedom we needed. The neighbor cats are no longer visiting with the microchip door and this is more important than the gifts as all the neighbors learned quickly how to use the same door when it wasn't chipped.

  • Love it! review by Hershey & Snickers
    5 5 Love it!

    I purchased the microchip door for my two outdoor cats Hershey & Snickers to let them in but not the wildlife. They are 8 years old, Snickers got it right away. Hershey flinches and backs away when the lock clicks open. She then wants us to open the garage door to let her in. :0)

  • The best customer service ever! review by CAM
    5 5 The best customer service ever!

    Needed to keep out the pesty raccoons. Installed the door and a crafty raccoon figured out a way to beat the system. Contacted Pet Doors customer service. Immediately received instructions to change the mode. Was referred to UK's office and after a couple of mode changes with exchanged e-mails, received a new unit from UK overnight delivery.

  • Life Changer review by Vicki
    5 5 Life Changer

    I love the door. It was easy to install-we did have a contractor do it because he was already here doing another job but I believe my husband could have done it as well. It is attractive and my dog caught on easily how to use it. Molly is not micro chipped so I used the micro chip included and put it on her collar. Within a day she had chewed it up--covered in teethmarks! I called SureFlap and they sent me a new chip at no charge. Great customer service. In the meantime she became adjusted to using the door without the chip. It was working fine for everyone so we stuck with it. The only problem I have is that I can't program it to do what I want--locked on both sides during certain hours. Bottom line? The door is the best thing since sliced bread--makes being a pet owner a breeze. Because we don't use the chip and I can't get the doors to lock the way I want, I probably don't need such a fancy door.

    ed note - Please call our customer service or Sureflap directly for help in programming the way you want it.

  • excellent product review by max
    5 5 excellent product

    This cat door performs very well. The door does make some latching sounds which are off putting to some cats but once used to the sound it's no problem. Easy to program and quick to respond to an entering or exiting cat.

  • Mixed review by Shari L
    5 3 Mixed

    The door works good. But I wish they made one that only allowed entry and exit via chip. I would like my cats to have the freedom to come and go as they wish, but even setting it in the raccoon mode, the raccoons have still been able to out smart the door. My only option was to install it backwards to have the chip let the cats out and locking the reentry at night to keep them and the raccoons out.

    ed. note - Please contact customer support about your difficulties.

  • Good door review by dynne
    5 5 Good door

    The door was easy to install, our cats fit through the door just fine, but the opening seems small visually. The plastic housing is rather deep, I guess for wall installation? We are happy with the door overall, it is keeping the raccoons out! We would buy again.

  • Love It review by goldenflake
    5 4 Love It

    This pet door saved my sleep; my older cat was waking me up 3 times a night to go out and we could not leave our old pet door open because of racoons. My cat took right to the SureFlap Microchip Pet Door and I get to sleep through the night.

    The only con is that it is rather noisy but once I got used to it, I am no longer awakened by it.

  • Works great!! review by mom2cats
    5 5 Works great!!

    Love this door, solved our neighbor cat problem & love the curfew mode (didn't think we would use it)! Works just as described,easy to program, and if your cat/dog has a microchip in an odd place (one of our cats is huge and his microchip is way back) there is even a mode (custom #10) that lets you make the sensor distance larger so it can still read the chip. Sooo happy with this door, thanks!

An Interview with the Inventor of the SureFlap Microchip Pet Door Including Comparison with the Cat Flap Version


Getting Started

Installing the Sureflap Microchip Pet Door in a Metal (or any other!) Door


Or, What About Installing Through a Wall (Requires Tunnel Kit sold Separately)?

Click below to expand:

Unfortunately, there is no larger microchip dog door available in this brand or any other brand. We do have other electronic pet doors that are larger, however no dog door with chip compatibility features.

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.

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.

The flap on the sureflap large microchip cat 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.

No, the chips and collar keys should still be programmed in the Sure flap memory.

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.

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.

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.

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.

No, there is not function to let you know whether your pet is inside or outside. If you needed that feature you would want to get the SureFlap Connect model with the additional Hub, both are available on

Well with microchip dog doors the door itself would have to be much larger for bigger pets to get through. This means that the range for sensing the chip is increased and because of that can be too far away for it to trigger the pet door lock consistently. Right now sureflap is working on a micro chip dog door, but it still has a ways to go.

More than likely, No. The glass in glass doors is tempured and will shatter if you attemp to cut it. You can have a local glass company cut a hole, to the pet door manufacturer's specification, in a non-tempured glass. Then have then tempure it for safety. You will need this adapter to have the SureFap Microchip mount correctly.

This SureFlap Dog Door is for small dogs only since the flap size is 7"w x 7"h. It is the only Mircochip dog door on the market.
