About this deal

Additionally, total spending on pets in the UK has increased by 25% since 2010, indicating a trend for owners to treat their pets as members of the family. Using either your cat’s microchip or an ID tag attached to their collar, the microchip cat flap will allow your cat and your cat alone to enter your home. If you’re installing a microchip cat flap, programme your cat’s chip into the flap before you install it. If an indoor-only pet slips out through an open window, they will be able to re-enter the house safely through the cat flap. The battery housing will be built into the cat flap so all you need to do is install the cat flap, test the mechanism, add the batteries, set up the microchip or ID tag and you’re good to go.

The optimum hole size is 212mm, but the cat flap can be installed into holes up to 260mm in diameter. The Hub links the cat flap to the Sure Petcare app, allowing you to track your cat’s movements in and out of the house and monitor any changes in behaviour, creating a greater connection with your cat and a deeper level of pet care. Now you can control when your pet leaves or stays inside, and gain insight into their behaviour whileyou're away.

The collar tag is not compatible with SureFlap Microchip Cat Flaps with a serial number of 1152201 or lower. The database and its contents remain at our company and stay with data processors or servers acting on our behalf and responsible to us. We had one but we're bemused to find a large black cat inside the house on more than one occasion (we eventually adopted him). This cat flap can be programmed to open for microchipped animals and it's default setting is a locked state. Often one of my cats will go out, then come back in, the hub will flash it’s ears showing it’s registered the cat coming in but the app won’t update it.

Since the launch of the Microchip Pet Door Connect in 2017, we have over 4000 registered pets and 2500 homes using the Sure Petcare app.Yet another close relation of the original SureFlap, this SureFlap Microchip Pet Door, perhaps unsurprisingly, is also in possession of a 32-cat memory and secure, long-lasting construction. This catflap will give us peace of mind when we go away on holiday and means cat care is easier to arrange as now carers only have to visit once a day to put food down instead of twice to open and lock the catflap. When your pet interacts with the cat flap, you will be sent a notification via the app on your phone. I might consider a cat flap that's more 'basic' (although as I already said the connect just becomes at best a regular cat flap if the app fails) however having one where I can easily check from my phone, from anywhere if he's in or out and modify settings on the fly is really something that is a good idea.

Otherwise, the basic model and the Connect model are largely the same: both are 142 x 120mm, both support up to 32 cats and both require four AA batteries. It is a decent size for an average to large cat, It can be set manually on "in" or "out" only, or locked completely, as well as set to open and close on a timer. Secondly the company may want to make a subscription based model in the future where you pay monthly to have extra features and this makes the most sense, to me at least.The Microchip Cat Flap Connect reads your cat’s microchip or collar tag to prevent intruder animals entering your home and its DualScanTM technology enables you to control which cats stay inside and which cats can leave. Only microchipped pets (that you have scanned into the door) can come inside the house (though any animal can exit - please note you can also install the door in reverse, to control which pet leaves the house, but you will need to make sure the door is completely undercover outside to protect the electronics). Benefitting from being a Universal installation cat flap (can be installed into most types of doors, glass, and walls) with the right installation accessories. Unsurprisingly, the key difference between SureFlap’s basic model and the Cat Flap Connect and is that the latter is connected.
