Pet doors are great for letting your furry friend(s) freely roam in and out. Unfortunately, they also let in anything else that can fit including strays and critters such as raccoons. SureFlap Microchip Pet Door uses the microchip your pet inserted as their ‘key’ to get through the flap. That way your pet, and only your pets, can enter or exit via the pet door. SureFlap already has a Cat Door available but a larger version, for bigger cats and small dogs, will be coming out in the next month or so.
I’ll be offering a giveaway for one later on but, for now, here are more details about the very awesome and sleek-looking SureFlap Microchip Pet Door coming soon.
- The SureFlap Microchip Pet Door allows only pets whose microchip codes are stored within the product to enter a home.
- It is powered by 4 C batteries, which typically last up to one year. A low-battery light illuminates when new batteries are needed.
- It is compatible with all common microchip types used around the world, including the 15-digit (FDXB), 10-digit (FDXA and Trovan Unique) and 9-digit (AVID Encrypted) formats. The new Microchip Pet Door can also be used with a SureFlap RFID collar tag (one included in the box), making it ideal even for pets that have not been microchipped.
- It will store the unique identities of up to 32 pets. Each pet’s microchip identity is permanently stored within the unit even if batteries are not installed.
- It utilizes a double-lock mechanism and robust polycarbonate door and hinges for added security against intruder animals like raccoons.
- The SureFlap Microchip Pet Door has new a “Curfew” mode that allows pet parents to set specific times when a pet may leave/enter the home; ideal for keeping pets indoors overnight. An LCD screen in the top of the product indicates which lock settings have been selected.
- The product’s entry portal is 7” wide by 6.7” tall and is suitable for larger cats, such as Maine Coons, and small dogs.
- It is easy to install in doors, windows and walls and accessories are available for glass and wall installations.
- The product comes with a 3-year warranty.
- The SureFlap Microchip Pet Door may be purchased in white or brown for $199.99 plus shipping and handling at www.sureflap.com.
