Electronic | Automatic | Motorized | Magnetic Pet Doors.
The Smart Door is a non-motorized electronic pet door that unlocks when it senses the pet worn collar but, the pet still has to push it open.
Your pet wears a small magnetic (no batteries) called a Pet Tag, that is key ringed to the pet’s collar buckle. When your pet moves in front of the pet door (3 feet away), the Pet Tag will trigger the pet door to open automatically! You can control how far away the door opens. The range is from 1 foot to 3 feet away. You can also control how long the door stays open, from 1 second to 12 seconds. The Pet Door opens in an up & down sliding motion. For OBVIOUS SAFETY reasons, the door descends SLOWLY by GRAVITY ONLY, in a safe and gentle way so not to hurt the smallest pet. Only the upward opening motion is motorized. You can be assured that after 25 years building Solo Pet Doors, it has never hurt a single pet. We love animals as much as you do!

Non-motorized, so-called electronic pet doors still require your pet to push open the hard flap, something many dogs and cats don't like to do. Even still there are many mechanical problems associated with these would-be automatic pet doors. When the new model was picked up by The Home Depot, we realized to our dismay that we couldnt possibly produce the units quickly enough using hand machined extruded metal. We also learned thousands of ways that a motorized pet door can fail in real world use. To solve both these problems we decided to make an investment of over one million dollars in research, development and tooling to perfect the reliability, manufacturability and beauty of the product. The result was a relatively inexpensive, technically advanced automatic pet door, built to last a lifetime.Featured on HGTV and many other news and information shows, and thousands of customer reviews, The Power Pet Door is one of the most useful inventions for pets and for the people they own. Power Pet doors are motorized to operate like a power car window only much faster. The pet controlled, directional ultrasonic pet collar lets your four-legged friends come and go safely and securely while completely freeing you of doggie doorman duty. Dog training is easy with a power pet electric doggie door. Most dogs learn to use their Power Pet door with no training at all. Others may take a few minutes, but virtually all dogs and cats learn to use their automatic dog door quickly and easily with a few simple training steps.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.
