Magnetic and Electronic Cat Doors | Automatic Cat Doors
On the other hand, the magnets used to pull an inside lever are relatively strong and more likely to pickup debris like nails and bottle caps. Since they’re stronger they may exert more pull than is comfortable for a kitten and at least one manufacturer recommends that they not be used until the cat is a little older. Positioning of the pet door is important as the magnetic collar key has to come extremely close or make contact with the bottom frame of the pet door. If mounted too high or too low the key might not trigger the door as it never gets close enough. Some manufacturers recommend that installation in a ferrous metal door may require that a wooden collar be built to isolate the pet door from the door. An aluminum door would not present a problem. Finally, a magnet is a magnet; there is no way for the cat door to distinguish among your pets or between your cat and a neighbor’s cat that happens to also wear a magnetic collar key.

Browse our wide array of cat doors and choose the best fit for your family.Power Pet's patented sensing system is also fundamentally unique and superior to other types of sensing systems used. We use directional ultrasonic sensing which allows the door to open only when your dog is on a direct approach, not when it is just wandering by, sitting or sleeping next to the door. No other brand of electric dog door provides directional sensing. Solo uses pretty old technology in the form of a simple magnet worn around the dog's neck. The dog worn magnet is pretty rugged but the magnetic sensors in the door won't work around appliances like washing machines, and refrigerators. The Solo door can also be opened by any magnet making it decidedly unsecure. Plexidor uses newer RFID technology which sounds pretty cool. However, the receiving antenna has to be made in a large loop at dog level. It is inserted in the panel itself so that the panel cannot be made transparent. The RFID also lacks the directional sensing and gets a lot of false triggers. The directionality of our ultrasonic sensing system makes it far superior to magnets or RFID sensors. True, in the past our ultrasonic transducers were somewhat susceptible to water damage when fully immersed in the lake or pool. But, no more. Our new MS-4 and MS-5 transmitter collars use newly invented, hermetically sealed transducers that are fully waterproof. The MS-4 will work without fail in rain or snow and is fine for most cats and dogs. The ultra-rugged MS-5 has no problem joining your pooch in a cool refreshing swim. It's fully submersible up to 6 feet of water.The e-Cat™ Electromagnetic Cat Door was designed with your Ideal Pet’s safety and sense of adventure in mind.
