What Is a Smart Dog Door?

Perhaps a more accurate term for a smart dog door is an electronic dog door. Unlike most “smart” gadgets, which connect to the internet, smart dog doors are simply more high-tech and secure versions of standard pet doors. Even with all of today’s technological advancements, WiFi-enabled dog doors are rare.

In general, electronic pet doors feature automated controls that unlock a secured flap to allow your pet to pass through. This action is usually triggered by a pet’s microchip or a special tag you put on their collar. This ensures only your pet is coming and going through the door. Many of these products also let you lock the door when you want to keep your pet inside. Before we go on, check out these other 10 really cool pet products you can buy on Amazon.

This pet door can be installed in a wall, window or door. You can even program the door to lock and unlock at specified times. The only downside: The opening is roughly a seven-inch square, limiting it to small dogs and cats. Learn which 11 items are the most hazardous for your pets.
