If you give your cat outdoor access through a cat flap, have you ever wondered how often they use it and how much time they spend in or out of the house? Sure Petcare has launched the world’s most advanced cat flap, the SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap Connect, which can give you an insight into your cat’s day and help you to stay connected to your pet when you’re away from home.
The Microchip Cat Flap Connect gives you more peace of mind that your cats are leading happy, healthy lifestyles. The cat flap links to the Sure Petcare app via a Hub and monitors the activity of your pets when they enter or exit your home. Each time your cat uses it, you receive a notification, so that you can keep an eye on them when you’re at work, out for the evening or even on holiday. You can share app access with friends and family so that anyone looking in on your pet while you’re out of the house can also keep an eye on their movements.
Graphs in the app track your pet’s activity over time. This enables you to follow your pet’s behaviour traits and to notice if there are any significant changes. Changes in a pet’s activity could be an indication of illness. For example, if your cat starts going into the garden more often, it could mean that they are going to the toilet more regularly, something you might not realise with an ordinary cat flap. The Microchip Cat Flap Connect enables you to identify possible illnesses and treat them more quickly.
The Microchip Cat Flap Connect is selective entry and exit, which means that in multi-cat homes, you can keep certain cats indoors whilst letting your other cats come and go freely. Cats can be kept indoors permanently or temporarily – it’s easy to change a cat’s exit permissions within the app at any time. If an indoor-only cat escapes through an open door or window, the safety learn mode ensures they can get back in through the cat flap.
The Microchip Cat Flap Connect uses microchip reading technology to keep intruder animals out of the home. It also features a curfew mode that can be used to keep your cats in at night to keep them extra safe when the sun goes down. The door can also be locked remotely so that if you are going to be late home or the weather turns bad, you can lock the cat flap wherever you are.
The SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap Connect and Hub are available to purchase from the Sure Petcare website.
