As this solution allows other cats or creatures to enter your property, it's not at all ideal, though it can be improved on a little by keeping the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.

The next step up from the magnetic strip design are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar fitted with an IR, RF chip or magnet. Subsequently, any animal that hasn't got a special collar cannot leave or access your property.

An extra layer of control and security is achieved, guaranteeing that only your furry companion gains access.

You need to enter the number of your cat's microchip into the memory the cat flap (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got several cats it will allow multiple entries. Entry and exit are only possible for microchipped animals, and the flap will be unlocked when you cat is close by.
