Earlier this year we told you that pet product specialist Sure Petcare were releasing a new smart cat flap. Today the day has come, SureFlap have released ‘SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap Connect’ – the ultimate cat flap!
The cat flap reads with the animal’s microchip or RFID tag. This allow owners to remotely monitor their cat’s activities as well as controlling access. All from the comfort of their smart phone.
The cat flap is the same size as standard cat flaps allowing owners to easily upgrade their ‘dumb’ cat flaps without additional works. The technology has been cleverly designed to support multiple cat households with custom rights. For example; if an indoor cat manages to escape via an open window it can be allowed back in but not out. The app also features real time notifications, alerting a user if the cat enters or leaves the house.
SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap Connect, is also the pet sitters friend as access can easily be shared. Allowing pet sitters to easily monitor a pets movements.
Dr Nick Hill, founder and CEO of Sure Petcare said:
“We have built upon the technology used in our larger Microchip Pet Door Connect to develop a product that makes life simpler for pets and owners, particularly in multi-pet households, and is the most advanced cat flap available in the market”
The pet tech and smart pet market continues to grow with the global market expected to increase £1.84bn by 2022, according to Grand View Research. This is shown by Sure Petcare’s earlier product release the Microchip Pet Door connect, released in 2017, with over 4,000 pets registered across 2,500 homes!
