How the Solo Works:

When the Solo detects the pet tag the motor turns a pulley that winds up the cord. The steel locking pin retracts then the door lifts up for the pet to pass. When it is time for the door to come down, it must unwind from this pulley that has drag to it so there is no downward force, very safe and gentle. The last function of the cycle after the door closes is to shoot the steel locking pin back into the Solo 2x4 aluminum frame.

The Solo Automatic door is triggered by a magnet. There are no batteries or circuitry in the tag that your pet wears. It is a magnetic field that triggers the door to open. This method of triggering the door is what make the Solo so reliable. It doesn't matter if the collar tags get wet. Because they are only magnets, they are very inexpensive to replace if they are lost.

Characteristics of Operation

An important characteristic of the Solo is that when it is mounted in an area where you may have moving metal, you may see the door cycle. A good example of this is in a laundry room situation. The metal moving parts of a washer or dryer can trigger the Solo, even if the sensitivity to the unit is turned down very low. We advise customers that if this occurs, then simply turn off the Solo during times that you are doing laundry and the machines are running. Household appliances do not usually pose a problem, simply turning down the sensitivity of the unit. It is always a good idea to turn on the door prior to installation in the area where it will be installed to see if any of these concerns arise. Unlike most electronic doors, the Solo can be used in a metal door, but as in the example of the laundry room install, when you open that door to go in or out yourself, you will see the door cycle once. These characteristics for the most part do not interfere with use of the door by the pet, but are simply characteristics you will see depending on your install location.

Note: Some customers have had interference problems with the DogWatch in ground fence (FM Frequency based containment fence) and use of the Solo. This means that the collar tag that the dog wears can sometimes vibrate. The door will operate as normal. This vibration is the only characteristic reported.

Why A Solo Automatic Opening Door?

There are only a couple of automatic opening doors on the market. The Solo is made with construction-grade quality. It is designed to last...as you would expect with a higher costing door. Other similar designs use cheaper construction (plastic framing) and also use less than reliable methods in their collar tag technology. The Solo is reliable because of its magnetic triggering mechanism. Other brands have numerous problems in different weather conditions and climates.

The Solo is the most dependable electronic door on the market. The simple magnetic activation and mechanics result in reliable, repeated operation
Special Note About Magnetic VS. Sonic (other) tags:
Magnetic tags are RELIABLE. Other doors that use sonic frequency have problems when the collar tags get wet as well as having general reliability issues. If you invest in an automatic door, do the research. Check out the better business bureau, customer blogs online etc. You will find that the Solo Automatic is the only door with an unblemished 18 year track record of sales with Moore Pet Supplies LLC.

The Solo Automatic pet door is motor driven on the way up, but gravity driven on the way down. This means that even if your pet is still in the pet door when it comes back down, your pet will not be injured by the pet door. There are no motors or mechanisms forcing the pet door down into place.

Photo of Solo Collar Tag
Solo Collar Tags come in three sizes. Any size tag will work with any size door. The Larger the pet you have, the larger the collar tag you should choose. This is because the larger / taller pet is farther away from the sensing coil that is located in the bottom corner of the Solo Unit. A small pet is closer to the gound and thus can wear a small collar tag even while using a larger Solo unit.

Great Electronic Door - Orig. Post 01/20/08 June 7, 2016
Reviewer: Randi Bewer from Stockton, CA  
I just wanted to thank you for this product.
My husband thought that I was crazy for wanting a electric dog door opener for that much money. He is so happy now, he thinks it was a well investment. He can't believe how often the dogs use this door.
I have 2 German Sheppard's, a  red bone hound dog, and a Chihuahua they all love it including the little one.
Its nice not having to get up and open the doors in the middle of the night.
I have told all of my neighbors and they are going to look in on them and from you guys.
 I got the door in May of 2007 and its holding its own as much as the dogs go out it.
Again thank you so much. If I ever move I'll be ordering another one for the new house.

Hitech Pet Problems - Orig. Post 10/04/07 June 7, 2016
Reviewer: L. Castagna from Tucson AZ  
My Hitech Pet Electronic door worked for a short time but the motor burned out.  Phoned several times and finally a person answered the phone.  I requested parts and was told the they only sell new units, never parts.  Her tone was rude and abusive, I asked to speak to an supervisor, the phone went dead, she hung up and I was never able to get through again.  I should have bought the Solo pet door from the beginning, trying to save a few dollars was not worth the problems.

Thanks - Orig. Post 10/31/14 June 7, 2016
Reviewer: AJ from Phoenix  
I have a couple of skittish dogs that really hated the idea of pushing a flap to get out.  I tried to get them used to it, but it never really worked.  This pet door was a great solution, because they don't have to push anything.  Perfect!

Wonderful Door - Orig. Post 07/25/15 June 7, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Arizona,  United States  
I purchased this door and it was great! It was really easy to install. We didnt even need to call any one. Our dog loves it and so does our cat. And the magnetic tags work really well and last a long time. Thanks so much for a great product. It was well worth the money we spent on this product. Thanks again.

Solo Automatic - Orig. Post 01/14/15 June 7, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Lexington, KY United States  
I love this door.  Aesthetically, it blends in well with the wall - it actually looks like a small floor level window!  Operationally, it couldn't be better.  I love the option to lock it shut for those times when company comes and the dogs just need to stay outside for awhile.

Our dogs caught on to using it according to their level of stubbornness/shyness.  The youngest dog caught on same day it was installed.  The most stubborn dog started using it after three days and the shyest dog started using it regularly after two weeks.

If you have cats you don't want outside, this door could be a problem.  They can sneak out with the dogs.

The door is pricey but all things considered, it is worth every cent.  It looks good, works great and my pets and I love it.
