A cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable piece of material hung over it, to give protection from the weather, but let the cat pass through it.

This uncomplicated design can be somewhat improved upon with magnetic strips to hold the flap in place, but it's still far from ideal as it allows other cats or animals to get into your house.

The next step up from the magnetic strip design are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, RF or IR chip. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it will not be able to trigger the flap and get into or leave your house, thus preventing some unwanted visitors. Again this is a pretty simple type of cat flap, given that any other cat in the neighbourhood who's got a similar collar can gain access to your house. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some degree with an RF cat flap/collar system containing a user programmed unique identifier.

The next step-up in feline entry security is to choose a cat flap which recognises your cat's micro-chip. You have to enter the details of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you've got several cats it will take multiple entries. The flap is unfastened whenever your cat is close-by, only permitting access to pets that are microchipped.
