I've had lots of different cat flaps over the years and even the more expensive versions of the microchip flaps but the Sureflap is simple to set up and the cats took to it immediately. It uses 4 x AA batteries and so far they have lasted a while and considering I have 3 cats that are in and out quite a bit they dont seem to use a lot of power. One good thing about the sureflap is the door itself is clear and the cats can sit and look out. Because they can see in the flap they are assured... (read more)

We had a Staywell Infra Red cat flap for a number of years with varying levels of success.
It finally stopped working so we bought the Sureflap microchip cat flap as our cats already had compatible microchips.
It was extremely easy to fit (fits into the existing hole from the Staywell) and it works very well indeed.
The only couple of downsides I'd say are that the cat has to be right in the tunnel for it to work - but not a major issue as it is very responsive. Also, even though we... (read more)
