Because this option will allow other cats or animals to enter your property, it's not at all recommended, although it can be enhanced to some degree by holding the flap in position with the addition of magnetic strips.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip variation. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased within it. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will be unable to trigger the flap and get into or leave your house, therefore keeping out some undesirable visitors. The point that any other cat in the neighbourhood who has a similar style of collar could perchance gain access to your house, is the drawback with this still fairly basic kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain extent with an RF cat flap/collar system offering a user programmed unique identifier.

Having a cat flap that can be triggered by your cat's microchip, is the next level in entry gadgets for felines. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's micro-chip into the memory the cat flap (which is powered by batteries), and if you have several cats it will take multiple entries. Whenever your cat passes close to the flap, it will unlock and allow solely your microchipped pets to use the exit/entrance.
