This eliminates a lot of pets as potential users since, again, a lot of pets don't like pushing open the hard flap. The panel sits in a trapezoidal shaped groove and uses a mechanism to lift the panel out of the groove to all it to swing open. This, presumably, makes a better seal and more secure latch than a conventional hard flap door. However, there are many problems reported where the panel doesn't seat correctly when closing and prevents movement in one direction locking the pet inside or outside. This door will give a little better wind resistance than a flexible flap door but, is not air tight. Panel material is ABS plastic. The sensing system is conventional RF (Radio Frequency). The pet wears an active radio transmitting collar that requires a custom battery and is not waterproof. Radio waves are not directional so the door theoretically opens within a certain radius. In practice, the distance varies widely and is affected by environmental RF noise. Searching for the best value in AutoSlide i3 Collar Key Pet Door Sensor?

Our Ideal Pet Cat Doors have been uniquely created to keep your kitty out of trouble and help prevent injury. Our cat door selections include doors with collar sensors, cat flap doors, the super-popular electronic cat door, and more!

Browse our wide array of cat doors and choose the best fit for your family.The e-Cat™ Electromagnetic Cat Door was designed with your Ideal Pet’s safety and sense of adventure in mind. The Magnetic Collar allows only your pet to activate the cat door for easy and controlled access. Additional collars are available for multiple pet households and can be purchased separately.Magnetic sensors react to a very low-strength magnetic field surrounding a magnet attached to the pet’s collar. The magnets can even have a mild therapeutic effect on the pet. Although the magnets can sometimes be set so that every magnetic collar will not release the door, the number of variations available is quite small compared with ultra sonic and infra red sensors. ​NOTE: Infra-red motion sensors are light sensitive and will NOT work well with totally black colored pets. We recommend black colored pet owners use the i3 Pet Door Kits insteadMotion sensor pet doors are recommended for pet owners with very small pets such as kittens or chihuahuas that are unsuitable for wearing collars, or for pets that do not like wearing a collar or pet owners who do not have any concerns of unwanted animals entering their homes. (eg. possums, raccoon’s). Also recommended for extremely large pets such as Great Dane and pets with long necks like Greyhounds. (ie. not suitable for i3 Collar ID option)​

Only one i3 magnetic pet sensor is required per door and needs to be hard-wired back to the Autoslide system using the included cable. The sensor will need to be mounted as close to the glass as possible so that it can pick up signal from the collar tag on the pet whether its inside or outside. If there is a screen door as well as a glass door, it is recommended that you purchase an additional wireless motion pet sensor for the inside to let the pet out and mount the i3 magnetic pet sensor on the outside to let your pet back in. ​

More than one pet? Each i3 Pet Door Kit comes with 2 collar tags, but you can purchase more separately. You can have as many collar tags work with the same sensor as required.
