It’s empty in here!
I have had it for an year and was great, then it stop working. I changed battery, reprogrammed it, did a reconfiguration of setting, all they said and it has never open for my cat again. Tested my cats chip and it is working perfectly.
So pleased with this high quality product. easy to install biggest part being cutting the hole in the door. Programming was easy though my kitten was well behaved and took to it like a duck to water being offered dreamies!. She loves it and other cats dont get in l have seen them trying. Be great if they make a WIFI verion you can lock / unlock by using an App. 10/10 from me.
This cat flap is as good as previous reviews but I cannot for the life of me work out how to programme for the evening In Only mode so I have to do it manually at night and in the morning. The instructions need to be much clearer; I think there is a stage missing.
This is the third type of microchip flap that we've bought. The 1st one only worked when connected to mains power. The 2nd one would only open from the inside, so our cat was stuck outside. This cat flap keeps our little escape artist inside when it's locked. He had a bit of difficulty to start. The reader takes a short time to read the microchip before it opens the door. He is used to it now.
Used to have a sureflap one at our old house but had to leave it when we moved and was recommended this one by a friend. Works just the same but a bit cheaper!
Does the job really well to keep out the annoying neighbour cat. I bought this to replace a standard Catmate cat flap in PVC - just needed a bit of extra cutting which was easy with a jigsaw. Following the advice is important to set it for your cat before fitting and use training mode for a few days. It took my cat a little while to get used to the slight tunnel from this cat flap and allowing him to get comfortable with this first and then the clicking of the microchip opening worked really well
This cat flap does what it should. The manual makes installation and setup relatively simple. The flap opens for the right cats at the right time!
