Since this option permits other creatures or cats to enter your home, it is not at all recommended, though it can be improved on to some extent by keeping the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.

The next step up from the magnetic strip pattern are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar fitted with an IR, RF chip or magnet. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it won't be able to trigger the flap and access or leave your house, thus keeping out some unwelcome visitors. Again this is a fairly basic type of cat flap, since any other cat in the Stoke-on-Trent area who's got a similar collar could perchance gain access to your house. An improvement to this equipment is a RF cat flap and collar system which offers a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat owner.

Fitting a cat flap which can be triggered by your pet's micro-chip, is the next level in access security for felines. The microchip number is entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you've got several cats). The flap will be unlocked whenever your cat is in the vicinity, only allowing exit or entry to animals that have a microchip.
