Who let the dogs out? That’s one question you’ll never have to think about with Plexidor.
The company’s new Plexidor Electronic doggie door is designed to let your animal come and go and he/she pleases, while keeping other critters (and burglars) outside where they belong.
The unit operates the same as a garage door. However, instead of hitting a button, your dog has a “wearable pass code,” which is a waterproof RFID chip that you clip onto its collar. As the dog approaches the door, the panel slides up and down. No batteries are needed.
“Having a technological tool like this is great for the health and comfort of the pet too,” says Joe Ambrose, Plexidor’s president. “For the pet owner, it is very helpful in preventing pet messes in the house from the pet having to hold it too long.”
The Plexidor Electronic Door is made of the same material as football helmets, so you won’t have to worry about it blowing open during storms. On the flipside, it also includes a safety mechanism so you won’t have to worry about little fingers or paws getting pinched.
The Plexidor Electronic Pet Door is available now in bronze and white. Prices range from $129 to $800, depending on the size and model.
