Remote locking comes in handy for customer in Italy
Emanuele, can you tell us why you decided to purchase a Microchip Cat Flap Connect?
We already had a cat flap and wanted to have more information about our cats’ behaviour when we're not at home. It allows us to make sure they are going in and out and that they feed regularly, and we can prevent other cats getting in as well as choosing which cats are allowed outside.
How did you find the setup of the product?
It's very easy, even a technology troglodyte like me could set it up it in a minute.
Has the cat flap provided you with more control over your pets’ access?
Yes, the remote locking and curfew mode are the reasons we purchased it.
Has the cat flap enabled you to have any further insight in the behaviour of your cats?
Yes, it helped us to understand that Silvestro is an outside cat and Nano is an inside cat and that he has changed his behaviour since Spritz joined the family. At first he was jealous of the new addition, but after a few weeks we discovered that he got back to his previous habits.
Does the cat flap make you feel more connected to your cats?
How did you find the setup of the app?
Very easy; I had to move from iPhone to Samsung and it was quick.
How often do you use the app and when do you interact with it most?
I give it a daily check, usually to answer the questions ‘is Nano back?’ or ‘has Silvestro arrived?’
What area of the app have you used the most?
I look at how long the cats spend outside over time.
Do the notifications provide any additional insight?
Sometimes a cat will go missing for a day or too and then we get a notification that they have returned, which gives us great relief.
