The next step up from the magnetic strip design are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. In this case, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. Therefore any animal that does not have one of these special collars cannot get into or leave your house. The drawback here is that any other cat in the neighbourhood that's got a similar collar might be able to gain access to your home when using this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system offering an owner programmed unique identifier. Only your purrfect companion gains access, thus adding an additional layer of control and security.
