High Tech Power Pet Extra Transmitter Collar
Love the door but collars are poor quality
We have had the door system for over a year. Love the door system itself but the collars are something to desire. Each collar we had purchased we have had to tape together just to make connection with the battery. The last one we put on our dog, brand new, he made one trip out the door with it on and it fell apart. In turn losing both the front of the battery case as well as the new battery. Hard to recommend this system to others knowing that it is dependent on the collar itself.

Love Door. Wish it worked consistently!
Have had doggie door one year. The pets (two dogs) love it, but am on my third transmitter and have gone through over a dozen batteries. Despite claims of three months, I'm finding about a six week battery life.
The transmitter pops open randomly. The new one took only 35 minutes before it had fallen apart. I used electrician's tape along the seam of the transmitter and so far (two weeks) that has held.
If you buy this, I'd advise extra batteries and transmitter up front, as you'll need them!

Good, with qualifications
The door is just great... the dogs took to it in a heartbeat. I had read about several problems with the collar transmitters but decided to give it a try. We have had no problems with the transmitters this first month. But if you have more than one dog, watch out. It took about 30 minutes for our Havanese sisters to chew through the strap collar that comes with the transmitter. Moments later the device was in pieces. We are still working on a replacement. It is challenging because the strap that is provides is thin, thus the slots in the transmitter won't accept a more robust collar. Sure hope we can solve this because we love the set up - and so do the dogs....

Great product- poor collar
The door works well. No problem. BUT Poor construction of the collar strap and the collar transmitter devices we have for our 2 cats. The transmitter device is quite flimsy construction and the cats scratch the plastic cover right off breaking the device. We had to replace the actual collar strap for something more substantial because our cats both were able to rip them to shreds and remove them. The test button on one device is also broken and renders the device inoperable. We had to order another set.
