Electronic SmartDoor gives your pet a key to the house so he can come and go as he pleases. Using radio-frequency technology, the SmartDoor reads the unique signal of a SmartKey worn on your pet’s collar and triggers the battery power-driven flap to unlock. When the SmartDoor no longer senses your pet’s SmartKey, the flap automatically locks back into place. The SmartDoor can detect up to five programmed SmartKeys and also operates in two other modes: fully locked mode and unlocked mode. Locked mode does not allow entry or exit for any pet and unlocked mode allows entry and exit for all pets.
Easily program up to 5 SmartKeys with a touch of a button
Uses 4 D-cell batteries (not included)
Energy-efficient, insulated flap with UV sun protection
I bought this door under the premises it would open the door so my 2 dogs could go in and out. The door activation is only locked open. My larger dog 75lbs can use it but the smaller dog 12lbs cannot
If you intend to install it in your wall
on May 29, 2019
If you want to install this in your wall, MAKE SURE YOU MEASURE YOUR STUDS FIRST. Most houses are built with 14 inches in between studs and this door is 15.5 inches wide so it will not fit. I had already cut my drywall out and the door doesn't fit so I had to return it and try to find a door that will fit the dimensions of my wall. The good thing is that Chewy's customer service made it incredibly easy to return.
Dont bother purchasing

Installed the door and within three months of use the entire door portion of the smart door had broken off at the cheaply made plastic hinges inside the smart door housing.

I have 5 dogs that all go out at different intervals so I am very glad I have this door.

Puppy accidents were extra hard for me to clean up due to healing from Achilles surgery. Door helped train puppy. It makes a lot of "popping" noise at night.
Very poor quality
on Jan 25, 2019
I bought this item Nov 2017 for our new Labradoodle puppy. By July 2018 it was broken. Chewy sent me a replacement (thanks!). January 2019, it broke again and Chewy can't help because purchase was more than a year ago. The screen is thin and hardware very poor quality so any dog would break it in less than 6 months.
Not a good buy

The door works as it should through the mode button, but none of the 5 keys will program to it. Since I already took it out of the box and took the stickers off, I'm stuck with a simple doggy door with batteries in it. Would not recommend this product.
Needs weather stripping
on Feb 10, 2019
The problem with it is that there is no kind of weather stripping between door flap and frame. This makes it like having an open window lets a lot of cold air in. Seems like some sort seal could have been engineered into this door. Other than the sealing problem it seems like a good product. I will be attempting to add the weather stripping myself.
Saved our peace of mind.

Love how it works. Didn't take our dogs long to figure it out at all. We had normal doggy door but we adopted 2 cats and they figured the doggie doors out right away. So we were panicking they would get out. So we found our savior. Simple to install simple to use.
Super easy to install and operate!

Very handy and works great with multiple pets too. Is a bit loud when locking and unlocking but makes sense ... ensure your sensor setting is good and you are off and running.
