Overview: The PetSafe Electronic SmartDoor allows your pet to come and
go as he pleases. The SmartDoor operates via radio frequencies (RF) and will
unlock when it detects the radio signal from your pet's SmartKey, allowing your pet access through the
door. When the SmartDoor no longer detects the SmartKey, the door will
automatically lock back into place. This Electronic SmartDoor is the large
model (PPA11-10711), designed for pets up to 100 pounds.
- Outer Frame: 16-1/8" wide x 23-5/8" high
- Flap Opening: 11" wide x 16" high
- Cut Out Size: 15-5/8" wide x 23-1/4" high
Power Requirements: The SmartDoor is powered by 4 D-cell alkaline
batteries (not included). The SmartKey uses a proprietary RFA-67 battery
designed by PetSafe. The RFA-67 is easily replaceable, and has a typical life of
approximately 6 months.
Operating Modes: You can set the SmartDoor to the desired operating
mode via the Mode-Reset button. Different colored LEDs indicate the current
operating mode. There are three operating modes to choose from:
- Locked (Red): In the locked mode, the SmartDoor will not allow
entry or exit for any pet.
- Unlocked (Green): The unlocked mode allows entry and exit for all
- Automatic (Yellow): The automatic mode allows entry and exit only
for a pet wearing a programmed SmartKey. Up to five SmartKeys can be
programmed to one SmartDoor for selective entry and exit.
Sensitivity Level: The SmartDoor features an adjustable sensitivity
level to optimize its functionality. The SmartKey's active area should be up to
approximately 2.5 feet from the SmartDoor. When your pet enters this active
area, the SmartDoor should unlock automatically in all cases. Inside a fringe
area about 6 feet from the SmartDoor may trigger the door to unlock, but
inconsistently, due to variables in radio frequency interferences. Once the pet
has left the active or fringe areas, the door should automatically lock after a
short period of time (up to 15 seconds). The SmartDoor's sensitivity is adjusted
via a rotary control.
Installation: The PetSafe Electronic SmartDoor is designed to be
installed inside a cutout in your door, and requires removing the door from its
hinges. A cutting template is included to provide a guide for positioning the
SmartDoor, drilling the pilot holes, and cutting the hole in your door. Tools
required for the installation include:
- Jigsaw or keyhole saw
- Electric or cordless drill
- 3/8" (10mm) drill bit
- Phillips screwdriver
- 4 D-cell batteries
Note: A SmartDoor Conversion Kit is available from
PetSafe for installing the SmartDoor through a wall (7-1/4"; more with additional extension tunnels) instead of a door. The conversion kit frames out exposed areas for a clean, finished look.
