Pet doors are efficiently designed so you don't have to worry about “letting all the air out of the house after you just got it warmed up or cooled down to the perfect temperature. They keep out the snow and the rain too, because they only open while your pet passes through. So how do they work? Electronic dog doors and cat doors are paired up with specific collars or devices worn on your pet's collar. As the pet approaches, a signal is sent to open the pet door so they can go in or out. That means you won't have other outdoor critters coming through—only your pets. You can also choose which pets can go outside on their own. By using an automatic dog door or cat door, you'll never accidentally leave the door to your home open. These doors lock shut when they're not being used for a sense of security.
