    How The Electronic Pet Door Makes Your Life Easier


    An electronic dog door is powered by batteries, by connecting it to an electrical outlet, or by a mix of both. This type of door uses high technology in oder to make life easier for the dog and its owner. The door has detectors that can sense the presence of a special collar that your pet has to wear, and will open only when this collar approaches. This will prevent other dogs or animals and even potential burglars from going into your house. Of course, the technology of these automatic doors makes them more expensive, but they are worth it.

    Traditional pet doors give the dog freedom to come and go, but they do not keep undesired elements out of the house such as cold weather and leaves like an electronic pet door can. Traditional pet doors can be entered anytime but electronic doors close right after the pet has passed through it and stay closed until the pet returns.

    How They Function

    The specific design may vary from model to model, but they all usually work on the same principle. The door has some sensors which make the door open when they detect a magnetic (sometimes infrared) signal emitted by a collar that your dog has to wear at all times.

    The door will automatically open after the dog passes through and it will lock until the dog returns to pass through again. There are some types which include a remote control that let the owner keep the door closed or opened regardless of where the collar is.

    One of the unique features about an electronic pet door is that people cannot activate the door because the high-tech sensors can detect the difference between an animal and a person


    Since the level of technology used plays a great role in the price aside from the material and size of the dog door, models can go from $40 to $700 in price.

    Other features include battery back up and different locking options.

    The electronic dog door is powered by normal electrical current or by batteries. It locks after the dog comes in, keeping animals and rain outside. Depending on your specific electronic pet door model, you may get different features.
