This uncomplicated model can be improved upon with magnetic strips to hold the flap in place, however it is still a long way off being ideal as it allows other cats or creatures to enter your property.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. This requires that your cat wears a collar which has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased in it. What this means is that any animal without one of these special collars can't get into or leave your property. The downside is that any other moggy in the Stenhousemuir area that's got a similar style of collar can easily access your property with this kind of cat flap fitted. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these devices because they can be programmed by the cat owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.

Having a cat flap that can be operated by your pet's micro-chip, is the next level in entrance gadgets for felines.

When your cat is close to the flap, it will unlock and allow only your micro-chipped pets to exit/enter.
