    Hello!

    I am so excited, my Electronic Doorkeeper finally arrived this morning!! I can't wait to install it but I'm a little confused about what size 'hole' I should cut for the door?

    I purchased there 12x15 door, do I cut the hole the same exact size as their door (12x15) or do I need to cut it a little smaller so the door covers the opening a little on each side? I just don't want to start cutting and screw it up!

    Thanks for any advice.

    My instinct says to cut it a little smaller to the automatic door overlaps the opening. Less drafts that way.

    That's probably a good idea. Thanks for the input!
