PlexiDor PDE RFID Collar Key

The PlexiDor Electronic dog door uses state-of-the art RFID collar (Radio Frequency IDentification) technology. The sensor reads the pre-programmed code to automatically open and close the door. Only pets wearing a programmed collar key are allowed through the door and all other animals are forced to stay outside.

The collar key is waterproof and weighs only 0.4 ounces. It is worn on the pet’s collar and snaps into place. The pet door is triggered by the collar key as the pet approaches the door. The length of time the panel stays open can be adjusted to fit your needs. The PlexiDor electronic dog door plugs into a standard household power outlet or can be hardwired. It is easy to program and even easier to use. An authorized installer will measure to ensure proper fit and installation can usually be completed within 45 minutes. Find an installer/dealer near you for more information.

  1. Elaine Floresca

    Love the PlexiDor electronic dog door through the wall. Customer service was very helpful with all the framing dimensions that were need to build our new house with their dog door. The dogs started using right away. So fun to watch them come and go by themselves.

  2. Richard Hall

    Love my second dog door. When it developed a complicated problem after about six months I was very concerned given the distance to a repair person. Despite a couple of failed attempts , Diedre was wonderful , patient and would do whatever it took to get it back to excellent shape. It truly was a rare and complicated problem but with their help we fixed it and I have no reservations recommending this product to even the remotest situation, (As long as you have phone and mail). I will buy another one if I do happen to move again. Priceless if you have dogs. The customer service truly makes this an exceptional product.

    I seldom write reviews as I am old school and believe when you purchase a product, it should work as advertised (which we all know is rare!). However, when a product, and/or their service, exceed my expectations, I am more than happy to tell others. This is the case with my purchase of a PlexiDor Electronic Pet Door. I found PlexiDor in 2012 while searching for doggie door options for my home in Lakewood Ranch, Florida (I had no idea they were located in Bradenton!). I took the plunge on this unique product and it has worked flawlessly for close to eight years! I have a fenced in backyard and I use the “through the wall” version (thru a concrete wall). I have two dogs (Golden Retriever & Black Lab) and they learned to use the door to let themselves out within a day. According to my calculations, over the course of almost 8 years, with two dogs letting themselves out on average 5 times a day, my PlexiDor has opened and closed approximately 29,200 times! It has never failed once, nor have I had to replace any components (I hope I have not jinxed it now)! In addition, their Customer Service is fantastic and they are very responsive to your questions/needs. Trust me when I tell you that you cannot go wrong with this product. The only issue you will have will be your disappointment in not having purchased the PlexiDor Electronic Door sooner!!

    I have two electronic plexidors – LOVE them and want a few more for the basement/front entries. Initially I started with flap entry doors – then i had 3 Bichon, then 2 BICHON and 1 standard poodle – now have 8 standard poodles and one Bichon. These doors are great and save me a lot of time and gives the pets freedom to let themselves in/out. Right now, 5 of the poodles are 5 months old pups so they basically fly out of the house on another’s key access – although i have RFId tags for all, do not know if the door’s programming will allow 9 or even 10 as i want another little dog. – am waiting a response to this matter – even a work around …

  5. Rita Cox

    I have had my electronic dog door for over 15 years now. I have had minor problems over the years but the customer service is fabulous, they always help me fix the door and have sent me replacement parts for free or very cheap. I love this door so much when I moved 4 years ago I took the whole back door with me. I can’t recommend this door and this company enough.

      Delete ALL TAGS Procedure:
      ==============================
      The following procedure will only work within 15 seconds after power-up! Read the directions first and then do the steps. You can re-do these steps many times without harm to the unit.
      1. Unplug the pet door or power it down by pressing and holding the black power button on the upper right hand side of the pet door frame.
      2. Plug in the pet door or push and release the black button to power up the pet door. Wait until you hear the initial power up confirmation beep ( 3 beeps, pause then a 4th beep ) and the blue light flashes ready.
      3. PRESS the Program button 5 times in a row then, then you should hear the delete code beeps, then press the button a 6th time and HOLD the PROGRAM button down with the test button
      The Time between the 5th and 6th depression time is very short.
      4. Finally you will hear a new series of beeps… wait until the beeps stop…. Then you can release the 2 buttons
      Your keys have been deleted; you can now reprogram all new and working keys
      Thank you

    We our on our second electronic door; we moved away from the first one and installed a new one after our move. We have made a few repairs in 7 years and the customer service we have received has been phenomenal each time. Our lives are much easier with our door; the dogs love the freedom and so do we.

  7. Tori

    My husband and I have had the Electronic door since 2011. Our two large dogs use it just about everyday year round in Kentucky. It’s been extremely reliable. When we had a problem, Deidre and Bill were there to help over the phone no matter how long the call may take. The best and most personalized customer service you’ll ever come across. Highest recommendation.

  8. Leslie

    15 years with an electronic Plexidoor. It’s hands down the BEST home improvement investment I’ve ever made! One minor repair, very minor I must say, and it’s still going strong.

  9. Marion

    Going on 10 years now with my PlexiDor. I’ve got two 50 lbs furry children that barrel through it all day and night. It has been worth its weight in gold. I had to call earlier this year for instructions on how to adjust the track, and my question was answered quickly and graciously. This product is a joy.

  10. Randy Gold

    We have had our electronic door for more than 10 years. Its installation followed the intrusion of a bear into our house through our old X-large dog door. The electronic door totally eliminates that problem because of the collar key entry. The door works phenomenally well. Frankly, with two very active Labs bursting through the door at least 25 to 50 times a day, it is amazing that it has shown the durability it has. This is not to say that we have not had problems but the door technology has improved over that time. What has been most impressive is the Customer Service, notably from Bill Zahn whom I worked with on numerous occasions. Not only has he been great in walking me through things to check and adjust, but he has sent me numerous parts over the years, and many at no cost. This is an outstanding product with a strong support team behind it.

  11. Scott Harris

    This is an AWESOME dog door solution. We purchased ours in 2011 and it works great. INSTALLATION: I’m not handy so we had a carpenter install the door. It wasn’t a problem for him. We live in an old house so rather than cut the original 1920 door, we bought a door from Home Depot. TRAINING OUR DOGS:: It didn’t take long for our dog to learn how to exit the house and reenter the house. WHY I LIKE IT; Versus a flappy cheap plastic door…this has two major advantages (1). More secure. For a large door, a flappy door can be easily broken into (just crawl in!) where this door would require force and would set up an alarm, and (2). Very weatherproof. The seal is tight, so hot air (summer) and cold air (winter) doesn’t continuously lead in. So there is a comfort and a cost savings factor. DURABILITY: In 7 years (Our dog uses the door about 5x a day, so that is about 13,000 up/downs!) we have had 3 issues. The incredible customer service person (Deidre, who has worked there for about 20 years) is extremely knowledgeable. She walked us through one problem in less that 5 minutes. She helped us fix another problem which took about 20 minutes. And the third issue required a new circuit board which under warranty was free (and out of warranty about $80) and once we received it, took about 15 minutes to install.

    My wife and I used to work at Purina for 17 years and 12 years respectively, so we know alot about dogs and cats. Our jusdgement is this door, although costly up front, is very well worth it. Don’t know the life of the door, but I would expect it to be longer than the 7 years we have had it. So if it good for 15 years, it costs about $120/year.

  12. Dean Graulich

    We lover our electronic plexidoor. We have had it since 2008 when it first came out. Pet doors USA has been great about helping us fix minor issues and it is still working great after 9 years. The dogs love it as well. We are currently training our pig to use it!

  13. Bernard

    My electronic door has been working great for 3 years, but one of the keys stopped working one day. It looked undamaged, but the other key worked fine and the door tested perfectly.
    Customer service was great!! No third degree, they just sent me a replacement key under warranty, shipping fast.
    iT’S A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH A COMPANY THAT MAKES A GREAT PRODUCT AND STANDS BEHIND IT!!!

Colors

 

PlexiDor offers three elegant colors to compliment the decor' of your home.

Choose from White, Silver or Bronze. Silver frames feature an anodized finish. White and Bronze frames feature a baked-on powder coating for increased durability, similar to the appliances in your home. A PlexiDor Pet Door is by far the most attractive pet door you will ever install in your home.

Our finishes will integrate perfectly into your home!

  • The white finish highlights common household appliances as well as most baseboards and trims and blends with most traditional decors.
  • The silver finish coordinates with newer stainless-steel appliances and looks great in a modern setting.
  • The bronze finish works well with darker toned furniture and accessories by adding an updated feel to the room.

A baked-on powder coated finish is far more durable than conventional paint. Powder coated surfaces are more resistant to chipping,  scratching, fading, and wearing than other finishes.

Security

Safety for you and your pet is our highest priority. Each door comes with a lock and key and a steel plate that can be easily attached on for extra security.

Lock and Key
All models come with a lock and two keys for everyday use. Just turn the key to lock out unwanted guests. Heavy duty steel lock visible only from the inside resists tampering. The small size door has a four-way lock that can be set to open, locked, open for entry, and open for exit.

Steel Security Plate
Medium and large size PlexiDor dog doors include a steel security plate that screws on easily when you leave for an extended period of time. To use the security plate daily, install the optional PlexiDor Sliding Track – so the door can be conveniently dropped into place and closed with a flip lock in seconds. Small size doors are too small for an intruder to enter and do not come with the steel security door.

Installation

Installing your PlexiDor Pet Door at the correct height will ensure the door is comfortable for your pet to use. Stepping up and through the door is best.
