Reviews







 


Review summary: We used and testing the original version and it was a well built unit and has been completely reliable.  PetSafe has replaced this design with an improved design, which we have not tested yet. We've updated the details with the new version.

   
 

PetSafe Electronic SmartDoor

Manufacturer: Radio Systems Corporation
List price: $90-$140
 
Editor's Rating:
4 stars
 
 


Pros: Reliable design, very small collar key, supports up to 5 pets, locks in both directions, adjustable sensitivity.

Cons: Hard to read text on door

 
 

This is a good door, and offers good value for the money. It uses a small electronic transmitter in the collar that is detected by an electronic sensor when your pet gets close to the door. The lock secures the door in both directions, where many cheaper doors do not. 
 
The door is offered in two sizes - one for small cats and dogs up to 15 lbs and another for larger dogs up to 100 lbs.

The door itself is made of a hard clear plastic. The body is made of white hard plastic and is constructed well. There are controls at the top to set it locked (no pets), unlocked (any pet), or automatic (pet must have key).

If you have multiple pets, additional collars are cheap.  The PetSafe collar is a good design and is easy to adjust. The keys are unique so neighbors using the same door will not be an issue.
