Give your pet a key to the house! With the PetSafe Large Electronic Pet Door you can let your pet come and go but still lock out unwanted visitors.
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. Animals without the SmartKey are not able to enter. You may have a total of 5 SmartKeys in use at one time.
Please use the guidelines listed below to select the proper size door for your pet. You should select a door that is appropriate for the largest pet that will be using the pet door.

Our pets finally got used to the loud CLUNK that unlocks the door, but were afraid at first to go near it. We're "living with" the noise now that the dog and cat are conditioned, but it took a couple of weeks until things settled down. The remotes are somewhat dangly and awkward, especially for the cat.

I replaced a regular "flap" door with this one so that my dog could come and go, but the new kitten would stay inside.
First, I agree that there's a little bit of a learning curve, but even my not-the-brightest-bear Beagle figured out pretty quickly that she had to hear the "click" before the door would open for her.
About that "click." It's more like a "CLONK." It's not subtle. It's pretty dang loud, especially in the middle of the night. And the sensitivity is odd: the Beag can be lying on her bed under my office desk (about 8 feet away) and the CLONK will randomly occur. Yet, at other times, she'll have to be pawing at the door before it registers the presence of the key and obligingly opens. It's a little ridiculous, and more than slightly annoying.
So, long story short, if your dog is particularly dumb or tends to hang around by the door at dinnertime because she thinks the clock is lying and if she just does some more wheelies in and out of your office, you'll get the picture and feed her earlier, this may not be the door for you. On the other hand, if you can just take her collar off when she does the Beagle Supper Dance and remember to put it back on later, and you don't want to spend three times the price for the Executive Mansion Mercedes of doors, this should do just fine.

I installed the large size door for my 130lb. black lab and the only thing I regret is not installing it sooner! Provides both my dogs with plenty of freedom to come and go as they please while I get ready for work in the morning or away at work during the day. The door sensor fob the dog wears is small and unobtrusive and the activation range is adjustable. I also like the feature that enables you to swith the door from "automatic" to "secure" at night although we leave it on "automatic" most of the time since it accomplishes the same thing.
