Excellent, many thanks, I’m really pleased to see this!
Our Sure catflap is the best piece of tech in the house as far as my wife is concerned yet is the only smart device not on SmartThings. I shall try this DTH on Sunday.

Installation was exactly as explained with no problems. Presence for our four moggies and hub light control work perfectly. Many thanks @Alyc100!

Updated code v1.1 now with ‘Keep Pet Indoor’ settings for individual pets. This is only supported on the DualScan cat flap connected models. See main post for details.

Note that if you have multiple dual scan cat flaps then this will set the indoors only mode for the cat across all of them.

UPDATE - Now 1.1b to reduce number of API calls to surepetcare API
UPDATE 2 - Now 1.2 with bi directional curfew settings sync (limited to one time set)
