I have the one form Fleming, but the advanced and I love it so far. The company is very responsive if you have a problem. The advanced is great, as I never have to adjust the time for darkness, but I bet the regular one is fine too. I just figured for $20 extra bucks, why not get the GPS one. I already had a door though, just bought the mechanism.

I purchased the automatic pet door from Fleming Outdoor about a month ago. I installed it (was very easy to set up and install) and am currently utilizing AA batteries until I get electric set up to the new coop.
I am very happy with Fleming Outdoor and received quick shipping from them. I saved them in my favorites as I am sure I will
be ordering from them again.
I did not get the advanced model with the GPS, but you can upgrade the basic model to it later if you decide you want it.
I received an email from Fleming with a coupon code of "CHICKEN" for $30 off the automatic pet door. It expires on November
17 so if you want one you better hurry. (I am no way associated with Fleming Outdoors, just a satisfied customer)
I'm up here in NorthEast Ohio on Lake Erie and the wind we get off that Lake is unbelievable . I installed this door around the first of Nov. It has been through a blizzard , 18 inches of snow and it has performed flawlessly - sometimes I give a quick wipeout of the bottom track , but most times just leave the door alone. Right now we have about a foot of snow on the ground with another 8 -12 inches coming & below 0 temps forecasted , so I closed the door and disconnected the battery and the chickens will be locked in the coop probably until this bitter cold snap passes ( about a week ) Sure am glad I insulated the coop , I also made a $3.00 water heater and their water is always unfrozen.
I would rec getting the sensor mounted door - just plug it in and forget about it
