This pet access door gives you more control of who comes and goes, which is especially helpful for homes with more than one pet.
I replaced my 30 year old sure flap cat flap as I wanted the new one to pick up my kittens microchip.
I think the new one is a little more flimsy, the plastic is thinner and it lets in a bit of a draught. However the updated features far outweigh these issues.
It's great to know whether my kitty is in or out. Love the little meow from the app when he comes in or out. Love the timeline and the activity graphs. Not had any issues with connectivity.
Very easy to set up to pick up the microchip.
Lovely design and very helpful
I really like this product. I had to return it but only because I have 3 cats various sizes and I felt this will be bit struggle for bigger cats e.g. 5kg . So then I will recommend to go with pet flap which I can see now was good decision. There will be not problem if you are skilled to fit this product, otherwise get good handyman. Also put more attention when you set your pets into system, otherwise you have to reset system again. Product is expensive but in long run, good investment.
This door has really impressed us. Great idea. The tricky part is the requirement of an external hub that for some reason ships without wifi in 2019. I'd rather run a power cable and/or ethernet/wifi to a built-in device in the flap itself which would be cleaner and require no batteries. I assume the hub was designed for multiple cat flaps. At the very least the 2.4Ghz hub should also offer 2.4ghz wifi so it could be hidden and not require cat5 cable.
