Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar featuring an IR, RF chip or magnet. No animal will be able to get into or leave your house unless it's fitted with one of these special collars. Again this is a relatively simple type of cat flap, given that any other moggy in the area that's got a similar collar can access your home. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these products and can be programmed by the home owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat. Gaining access is restricted to only your purrfect companion, resulting in an added layer of control and security.

The flap will be unlocked whenever your cat is close-by, only allowing access to animals that are microchipped.
