Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is merely that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable sheet of material placed over it, to give protection from the weather, but allow the cat pass through it.

This simple design can be to some degree improved on with magnetic strips to keep the flap in place, but it's still far from perfect because it allows other cats or animals a means by which to enter your property.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip version. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar featuring a magnet, IR or RF chip. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will be unable to trigger the flap and leave or access your property, thus keeping out some unwanted visitors. The drawback is that any other cat in the neighbourhood who's got a similar style of collar will be able to gain access to your home with this sort of cat flap fitted. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain extent with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring a user programmed unique identifier.

Fitting a cat flap which can identify your cat's own microchip, is the next step-up in entrance security for felines. You need to enter the details of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one cat it will take multiple entries. When your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it unlocks and permits just your micro-chipped pets to enter or exit.

This provides full control over how your cat flap works both throughout the day and during the night time. Some of the more advanced models can be programmed to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, in line with your pet's and your needs.
