What is an electronic pet door?

An electronic pet door lets your furry friend have a key to the home. Many electronic doors just release a latch so the pet can push the door open, but the PlexiDor is a little different: it has a composite panel that slides up and down like a miniature electronic garage door. 

The door and key use RFID, and when a pet with a key comes close, the door reads the pre-programmed code. If it's the right code, it will open. When the panel is closed, it acts as a security door. It has a safety to prevent it from closing if something is in the way, thus a pet's tail or paws can't get stuck in it.

It is easy to program the door, and easy to add keys for more than one pet. One can also choose how long the door should stay open.

  1. This is so cool and I've always wondered if something like this were available. Our dogs burst out their door like their late for a fire sale at Petco - It'll be interesting to see if these doors can keep up with our duo.

    It may not work on our outside door. But it would be amazing for our door from the house to the garage.

    Thanks for the information!
