The simplest style of cat flap is essentially that. A hole in a door with a bendable sheet of material fixed over it, to keep out the elements, but allow the cat pass through.

This uncomplicated model is still a long way off being ideal because it allows other creatures or cats a way to enter your home, however it can be to some degree improved on by adding magnetic strips to hold the flap in position.

The next step up from the magnetic strip style are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. This requires your cat to wear a collar that's got either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased in it. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your property unless it's equipped with one of these special collars. Again this is a fairly basic type of cat flap, because any other cat in the neighbourhood that's got a similar collar could perhaps get into your property. An improvement to this device is a RF cat flap/collar system which includes a unique identifier which can be programmed by the user.

The next level in feline entry security is to choose the kind of cat flap which recognises your cat's microchip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you have more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. The flap is unfastened anytime your cat is nearby, only allowing entry or exit to animals that have a microchip.
