cat flap timer control - catmate

The Cat Mate Elite Microchip Cat Flap with Timer Control is the perfect solution for selective entry control, operated by your cat’s implanted identification microchip. This eliminates the problems caused by the unwelcome intrusion of neighbouring cats, providing a safe and secure environment for your cat.

Once your cat’s microchip has been registered, the Timer Control function can be programmed to select access times for all your cats through the cat flap, e.g. to keep cats in at night. Up to 9 cats can be registered. For cats without an implanted microchip, a unique Cat Mate I.D. Disc can be attached to your cat’s collar (available separately). 

The easy to view LCD panel displays helpful location indicators for up to 3 selected cats, showing whether they have entered or exited through the cat flap and the time since each cat last used the flap. Other display features include the electronic 4-Way lock status (Unlocked, In Only, Out Only, Locked) and low battery indicator.

The stylish design maximises entrance opening space - providing easy, stress-free access for your cat. The large 144mm (W) x 150mm (H) opening is fitted with a transparent flap which is preferred by most cats and is made from super-tough polymer. The brush sealed flap with magnetic closure ensures a draft and weatherproof seal.

The Cat Mate Elite Microchip Cat Flap with Timer Control is self lining to 100mm thick - ideal for fitting to all doors and walls, including metal and single/multiple glazed panels. Product dimensions: 248mm (W) x 265mm (H) x 135mm (D). Cut out size: 178mm (W) x 205mm (H).

  • access with your cat's personal microchip or Cat Mate Elite I.D. (available separately) - access for other animals thus prevented
  • for up to 9 cats
  • 4-way lock control
  • battery status indicator
  • 4 x AA batteries required (not included in delivery) for a assured operating period of around 12 months
  • timer-function controls the access for all of your cats (e.g. preventing exit at night)
  • flap with full draught-free, weather-resistant brush seals 

When you are purchasing a cat flap, please ensure: -

  • To select the most appropriate cat flap for your cat’s size, weight and needs.
  • We recommend that customers use the flap sizes to cut a hole in a cardboard box to see if the cat/dog will fit through it ok.
  • It is vital that you are confident that your cat flap purchase will fit in the desired place in your home. For example – if it is a glass installation, is the glass wide enough?

IMPORTANT: For glass installation, you will need a glazier to cut a 232mm diameter hole in the panel. Please note that for installation into double/triple glazing or toughened glass will require a new panel to be made. For wall thickness over 100mm, a Cat Mate Elite Wall Liner will be required for each additional 50mm (available separately). All Cat Mate products are covered by a 3 year guarantee.

Ask a Question
  • Can this be put into double glazed glass? Thanks in advance

    Yes, a glazer can do that for you.

  • Is this flap compatable with petblig microchip?

    Do you mean Petlog? If so, then yes.

  • My problem is my cat following me when l go out. Can the timer be set both ways? (Timed when cat leaves & returns).

    The timer is set to keep your cat in at set times. It will let them enter the home at any time, but once they are in, they won't be able to go back out at the times set.

  • I’m replacing a current cat flap. Can you let me know the screw fixing locations please?

    Sure - one screw goes in on each side. About half way up on the side. If you need exact dimensions, please contact the manufacturer directly. Thanks.

Shipping service great / product not so

Overall level of service has been great but getting the cat flap set up is taking sometime, it still doesn’t work properly and can’t get hold of anyone to support. appreciate this is a manufacturer issue not supplier.

Great looking product

Easy to install, looks good, four way operation which is great news as I can lock it at night so that I know my cat is safe at night time. Product is slightly noisey when it recognises my cat's microchip but she'll get use to it.

Cat Mate Elite

Brilliant. We’d been troubled by an ‘outsider’ cat and had purchased a microchip activated flap but it left us with the problem that our cats could not be timed as to their comings and going’s. With Cat Mate Elite we know that no strange cats can enter the house and that our own cats are in at night, safe and sound, and can go out in the morning.

Thanks so much for your lovely review.

Cat flap microchipped timed

A little fiddly to set up but works perfectly

Great cat flap

Quick delivery. Cat flap withstood my cat’s initial attempts to break it. She got the hang of using it quite quickly and now it’s doing its job perfectly. Instructions for setting the timer are not very straightforward, but I got it right first time! I’m happy with this purchase.
