SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap Connect with Wireless Hub
The SureFlap Microchip Pet Door Connect uses your pet’s existing microchip like an electronic door key to allow them to come and go from the home without leaving doors and windows open. The included hub and app mean that the permissions of the door be controlled on your phone, wherever you are!
The SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap Connect uses your cat’s existing microchip like an electronic door key to keep unwanted animals out of your home and can be controlled with the SureFlap app and hub.
The included hub allows you to control your cat flap on the go. It is connected to your home router with the included Ethernet cable and gives you wireless control. You can receive notifications when your cat leaves or enters the home and lock or unlock the cat flap via time scheduling or manually. It offers alerts for when a neighbourhood pet tries to access your home and it provides insights into your cat’s behaviour. You can see how long they spend outside of the home and spot any abnormalities. Thanks to DualScan technology, you can also set different permissions for different cats. To use the hub, you are required to have iOs9 or later or Android 4.4 or later.

The presence of a metal plate in an installation location can influence the performance of the Microchip Cat Flap, reducing the range of the microchip reader. This includes the following:
- Metal skin doors
- Security doors
- Metal garage doors
- UPVC coated metal doors
- Metal frames around a wall installation
For most situations you will not notice anything, as the read range will still be sufficient for the majority of microchips. However, if you experience intermittent operation or failure to open for your cat, first check for the presence of a metal plate in your installed location.
Note: UPVC coated metal doors often look the same as standard UPVC doors and you may need to look carefully where the panel has been cut. If a metal plate is confirmed, follow the instructions below for improved read range.
If there is metal present, you will need to cut a larger hole in your door, leaving a gap of 2-3cm (1-1.2”) between the tunnel of the cat flap and the metal in your door. To begin with, trace around the outer edge of the back frame as a size guide. Now mark your cutting line 1cm (0.3”) inside the line you have traced around the back frame, leaving the screw holes in place. Cut this hole and reinstall the cat flap.
If you still experience intermittent operation you will need to increase the size of the hole again, in this case you will require the cat flap mounting adaptor.
Once you have the mounting adaptor, trace around the circumference of the mounting adaptor as a guide. Now mark a circle approximately 2cm inside the line from the mounting adaptor, again leaving the indentations for the screw holes. Cut this hole and then reinstall the cat flap again. This will extend the read range further and should resolve any issues with mounting in a metal door.

Brilliant should of got one soonerCats love it, it has given them the freedom to choose to come and go when they please, no more messy smelly cat litter
Set up issuesHub needs to be connected directly to router / internet source. My router is at the other end of the flat to my cat flap. I bought a booster which is only effective at a mid point in the flat so useless for this purpose. I contacted sure flap who recommended a Ethernet over mains adaptor - in order to get the flap up and running I think I need to purchase more boosters, a further £100ish spend. I wanted to point this out as it is not made clear on the site. Assess the location of your internet source before purchasing. An expensive mistake!
Doesn't work properlyThe flap is fine, but what you pay the extra for doesn't work. Setting specific hours that the flap won't operate doesn't work, my cat goes out freely. Also there are occasions when it's completely open without my cat in sight so any cat could just walk in. Spoke to customer services and their response was that its the batteries at fault.
Great addition to my smart home!Easy to set up, although I did have to work to encourage my cat to use it. She still prefers one of her butlers to open the door for her, but will happily use the cat flap when weâ€™re not around, and I know that because I wake up to notifications that she been out whilst I was asleep! Love it!
Cat flap magicThis is just brilliant. Can see cat activity on my phone so I know which of our 3 Cats, Aslam, Jadis and Mr Tumnus are in or out.great peace of mind when away. Just but this now.
