This uncomplicated design can be improved on to some degree with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position, however it's still far from ideal since it enables other cats or animals to enter into your property.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip variation. This requires your cat to wear a collar that's got either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased inside it. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your house unless it is fitted with this special collar. The reality that any other cat in the area that has a similar collar may be able to gain access to your house, is the drawback with this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system offering a user programmed unique identifier.

The next level in feline entry security is to consider a model of cat flap which recognises your cat's own microchip. The micro-chip details are programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you've got several cats). When your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and permits only your microchipped pets to enter/exit.
