This simple model is still far from perfect because it allows other cats or animals to enter into your property, however it can be somewhat improved upon with the addition of magnetic strips to keep the flap in place.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap, are a significant step up from the magnetic strip version. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, IR or RF chip. What this means is that any animal that doesn't have a special collar cannot access or leave your home. The downside here is that any other cat in the Gerrards Cross area that's got a similar collar could perchance gain access to your home with this type of cat flap installed. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these products because they can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.

The next level in feline access security is to choose the type of cat flap which recognises your cat's microchip. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got more than one pet it will accept multiple entries. Entry and exit can only be accomplished by microchipped pets, and the flap is unlocked whenever you cat is in the vicinity.
