Cat Mate Electromagnetic Cat Door
Electromagnetic doors automatically lock and unlock when they sense a magnetic key on your pet’s collar. This can be ideal for people with multiple cats, as you can control who stays in or out. Simply place the appropriate magnet on the outdoor cats’ collars and now you have an effective system. You can set the doors to full access, completely locked or one-way entry or exit. This electric door can also prevent overly friendly neighborhood cats, raccoons and other critter visitors from entering your home. Just be aware that the magnetic keys sometimes pick up other metals during your cat’s forays, so keep an eye on the collar in case something like a nail or screw is stuck there. The door uses a 9-volt battery and comes with two magnetic keys. You can order extra keys for any additional cats. Reviewers say that the door installs easily and cats are ready to use it within a few hours.

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.
