Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BSFgirl Dog door has all the bells and whistles you could want.
The only problem we had with the dog door was that the electrical adaptor that came with the unit didn't work with the door. We discovered it was compatible with another cord (dust buster) and used it instead while HomeDepot sent us another cord.
The unit went in easily, toughest part was cutting the hole in the wall but the frame of the dog door allows for mistakes and we were very happy with the seal and the dog was even happier. She learned how to use it within minutes.
We used a wall extender, 4" plastic and it was perfect for a house with wood siding.

This was a replacement. The old one lasted three years then started to malfunction. Will send it back to manufacturer for a rebuild.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michael Great door for the money
This door gives us such a relief and we dont have to worry the neighbors to help take care of our cat. It keeps the local cats and racoons out of the garage so we can leave enough food while we are away. Great door. Just took a bit to get my cat to use it as the noise of the door opening did scare him at first.

Really a pretty cool door and signal collar system. I just put it in and it works as it should for both of my dogs. The adjustable signal distance is a great feature. We bought this to let the dogs come / go freely while keeping the cats snuggly in the house. The door pressure / tension is a little tricky if the whole unit is not set flat and tight against the wall surface.
I can only come up with one negative issue: the installation hardware (long silver screws) are cheaper quality. Three screw heads snapped off and two phillips heads stripped (out of 10 screws). Do yourself a favor and purchase mounting screws of your own.
Future wish list for this door system: some kind of secondary outer flap to help provide an insulating barrier from outside cold.

We purchased the electronic door with the intention of installing it in our back door but since we have a storm door for winter and a screen door for summer besides the back door, we decided it would be better installed through the wall right next to the back door. Installation was simple once we made the cut in the wall. Our dog loves it because she can go in and out whenever she wants. She just walks up to it and it opens. It has dials so we can adjust how close she has to be for it to open for going out and coming in. Since it operates on electricity you need to have an outlet close by. We turn it off at night so she won't go out and bark. It's very simple to operate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by drdave77 Works as described
I've had the Electronic Pet Door installed for about a week now. It basically does everything it was described to do, and does it very well. My cat had no trouble learning to use it. The only things I can think of as far as product negatives is the fact that the noise made when the door opens is louder than I would have expected - but maybe this will be a plus as it will scare other animals, beside my cat, away. I like this product enough that I will probably be ordering another one and I would recommend it to friends.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Poor Collars
Door works great but Collar need improvements. Collar is not durable enough for active dogs. I cut into a $300 service door to install the pet door to find out later how poor the collar design was. The collar cannot tolerate any water or minor bangs & clangs from the dogs. I have electric fence collars that handle bangs & clangs just find and are waterproof so I wonder why it is so hard to offer a similar collar for this pet door?? Beware of the collar on this product :( :(

Works very well, we have 4 doxies so we had to extra sensors to put on their collars. The installer did a great job and he was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this door to others!
