Overview: The Sure Petcare SureFlap Microchip Pet Door (SUR101) is designed for cats and
small dogs, and can be installed into a door, glass, or a wall. The
door interacts with your pet's implanted microchip or the included RFID collar
tag to automatically unlock the door, allowing entry. The SureFlap Microchip Pet Door comes
with an RFID collar tag, and installation hardware.
Note: For a Wi-Fi enabled, app-controlled Microchip Pet
Door, see the
Pet Door Connect and
Hub (sold separately).
Microchip Pet Door: The
Door has a built-in microchip reader that recognizes your dog's or cat's
implanted RFID microchip or collar tag and
unlocks the door to allow your pet (and only your pet) to enter through the door. (It allows
any animal to exit.) Each microchip and collar tag must be
registered with the microchip reader so it can be recognized. The Pet Door is
compatible with all microchips commonly used for pets, including those with
15-digit, 10-digit, and 9-digit models.
Note: Additional RFID collar tags are sold separately by
the manufacturer. Up to 32 pets can be programmed into the pet door at the
On Board Controls: The pet door has six buttons under a
removable cover. The buttons include: Function, Locking Mode (see below), Time
Set, Lock Time, Unlock Time, and Add a Pet. A 2-3/4" LCD screen on the top shows
the current, lock, and unlock times, as well as the locking and unlocking mode
directions, battery life, Wi-Fi connection, and Microchip reader condition.
Locking Modes: There are five locking modes:
- Standard: Allows only authorized pets to enter and all
pets to exit.
- Keep Inside: Allows only authorized pets to enter and
prevents all pets from exiting.
- Keep Out: Allows all pets to exit, and once outside,
they are prevented from re-entering.
- Lock Both Ways: All pets are prevented from entering or
exiting the house, keeping all pets in their current location.
- Curfew Mode: Sets a lock and unlock time, giving your
pet access to the outside for a set period of the day (i.e. unlock in the
morning, and lock at night). During the Lock Time, the door is set to Keep
Inside mode, allowing your pet to enter if outside, but prevent him from
Installation: The Microchip Pet Door can be installed in
doors, walls, and through glass. If possible, the door should be installed so
that the base of the tunnel is at the same height above the ground as your pet's
stomach. Suggestions for each installation type include:
- Doors: The Pet Door can be installed in all door types,
including wooden, plastic, glass, and metal. Metal door construction may
impede the performance of the microchip reader, including metal skin doors,
security doors, metal garage doors, and UPVC coated metal doors. It should
not be installed in a fire-rated door, as it will reduce the effectiveness
of the fire door.
- Glass: The Pet Door is ideal for mounting in single or
double glazed windows. Cutting glass should be performed by a qualified
glazier. A Pet Door Mounting Adapter, required for glass installations and
sold separately from the manufacturer, allows mounting the door in circular
holes between 11-9/16" and 12-5/8" in diameter.
- Walls: For wall installations, Pet Door Tunnel
Extenders will likely be needed (sold separately by the manufacturer). Each
Tunnel Extender fits snugly onto the 2-3/4" long tunnel of the pet door, and
adds 2" to the overall length of the tunnel. Before beginning installation,
you should consult a qualified builder to discuss the best location for the
door, and for determining the presence of electrical wires, water pipes, or gas lines.
Dimensions: The Microchip Pet Door is made for cats
and small dogs. The door creates a tunnel through the door, glass, or wall for
your pet to enter or exit through. The door has the following dimensions:
- Flap Opening: 7.0" (W) x 6.69" (H)
- Tunnel Depth: 2.75" to 3" (optional extenders
- Door/Wall Cutout: 8.15" (W) x 9.21" (H)
- Glass Mount Cutout: 11.81" to 12.625" (minimum/maximum)
- Exterior Frame: 10.31" (W) x 11.06" (H)
Power: The SureFlap Microchip Pet Door is powered by four
C-sized alkaline batteries (not included). High quality, brand name batteries
are recommended. Fresh batteries last approximately 6 months.
