In evaluating an electronic doggie door the first question is, "Does the door really open and close by itself or does it just unlock, requiring the pet to push it open?" Most so called "electronic pet doors" on the market are not opened by a motor and require the pet to push open the panel. That is something that a lot of pets don't like to do. Motorized electronic doggy doors are in a class by themselves, giving you huge advantages over electronic dog doors that merely unlock. Not only are motorized dog doors convenient for you and your pet, they are better sealed and far more secure. This is because the linear track in which the panel moves up and down provides a continuous, air tight seal and also provides a mechanically stronger holding mechanism that resists being kicked in by an intruder. Electronic dog doors that just unlock and swing open have to seal the sides of the swinging panel. These seals are not air tight and allow air to pass through just like flap doors, making them susceptible to drafts, less energy efficient and less secure against intruders, just like flap doors. Electronic dog door models like the Petsafe Smart Door and the Petsafe Passport are not motorized and are simply not in the same class of a Power Pet door (although, they like to advertise as if they were). There are also various magnetic and electro-magnetic dog and cat doors that operate a simple solenoid that unlocks the door when is senses a magnet on the pet's collar. Such products are made by Ideal Pet Products (a very good dog door manufacturer), Dog Mate and others. These types of products really do not provide much more in the way of security or insulation than a conventional flap door and don't really warrant much consideration here.
All automatic pet door models have sensors that pick up a signal from a small transmitter on your dog or cat's collar

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.On this site you will also find many other products that are unique and not available from any other pet product manufacturer. Our proprietary Pulsed Proportional Stimulus system used on all High Tech Pet electric dog fences continuously increases corrective stimulus as your dog approaches an invisible boundary, letting your dog decide for himself how much stimulus is enough to cause him to retreat.
