Magnetic Cat Doors


A magnetic cat door is collar controlled and won’t allow unauthorized critters access to your home.

Magnetic, collar-controlled cat doors may be right for you if you live in a rural area with a lot of wildlife, or an area with a big population of feral cats. Automatic cat doors won't allow any animal access to your home without a collar key or collar transmitter to activate the cat door.

However...magnetic cat doors will open for any pet that wants to exit the home. If you need two-way control please see the PetSafe Electronic SmartDoor.

TIP: If you have pets that vary greatly in size, for example a huge Mastiff and a small cat, the cat would have trouble pushing through a flap that has to be big enough for a Mastiff. A motorized electronic pet door is the solution for you because there is no flap to push. Motorized pet doors slide up and down to open and close, similar to a garage door, and can be used by any size pet no matter how small or large.

Automatic cat doors cost a bit more than manual cat doors, so they are not for everyone. But for those who need them, usually for security purposes, they are worth every penny. People who will consider nothing but an electronic cat door typically:

  • Have a problem with feral cats, skunks, raccoons or other animals gaining access to their home through a non-secure cat door. An electronic cat door would solve this problem.


  • Have a big dog or dogs that need to use the same pet door as their cat. Big dogs need big doors; obviously, but a big door flap might be too heavy for some cats to push through. If that is your situation then see our electronic dog doors section for pet doors that are large enough to accommodate big dogs yet are still user-friendly for cats.


  • Have small children in the household that could easily crawl outside through a non-secure cat door or dog door. Keep in mind that some magnetic cat doors will not prevent exit from your home. If that is your concern you need a fully electronic, automatic cat door. See either High Tech Pet doors (referenced below) or Plexidor pet doors.


  • Have some pets that are not allowed outside. It's important to note that while an electronic cat door or dog door can deter unauthorized pets from getting out, there is no guarantee. If they are fast enough and daring enough they could slip out when the door opens for the pet that is allowed outside.

    In addition, some automatic pet doors don't restrict access to the outdoors at all, they just restrict entry to the home. Be sure to read product descriptions carefully and if you have any question at all call our customer service department.

Americas-Pet-Store.com is an Authorized Online Retailer for major national brands of electronic cat doors including:

High Tech Pet Power Pet Doors
High Tech Pet electronic cat doors are fully automatic and operate on regular household electricity or battery power. Instead of a flap they have a rigid high-impact door that slides up and down similar to the way a garage door does. These electronic cat doors restrict access into and out of the home to those pets that are wearing a collar key.

Thermo Panel IIe Magnetic Patio Cat Door by Patio Pacific
The Thermo Panel IIe is a top-quality cat door for sliding glass doors. It features dual-pane, low-e insultated glass for optimum energy efficiency. The built-in cat door is a CatWalk magnetic cat door. While this cat door will only allow access into your home by your cat wearing a collar key, it does not restrict access to the outdoors unless you manually lock it. In other words, any pet inside your home can go out this door, with or without a collar key.)

CatWalk cat doors are not owned by or affiliated with Patio Pacific Pet Doors, but they have apparently teamed-up to create this wonderful patio cat door. Our guess is Patio Pacific's Endura flap does not come is sizes small enough for this door. So, rather than re-create the wheel, they apparently decided to work with CatWalk on this one cat door model. In our opinion they are a dynamic duo.

Patio Pacific also manufactures a line of cat doors for windows called Thermo Sash IIIe pet doors. These are top-notch cat doors designed for optimum energy efficiency.

Other lines of cat doors for windows that we carry are Ideal Fast Sash Pet Doors and Hale Pet Doors for windows. Also see Hale’s cat doors for screen doors.

CatWalk Cat doors
Besides their collaboration with Patio Pacific on the Thermo Panel IIe described above, CatWalk Magnetic Cat Doors come in two different models; one is for installation through a door and the other is for glass. It is strongly recommended to enlist the services of a professional glazier to install a pet door in glass.

PetSafe Cat Doors
The PetSafe Electronic SmartDoor PPA11-10711 is a great value as are most PetSafe products. The PetSafe SmartDoor will not allow animals to enter or exit the door unless they are wearing a collar key. If you are concerned about controlling both entry and exit then this Pet Safe cat door is for you.

Staywell Magnetic Cat Flap

This budget friendly magnetic cat door by Staywell can be used as an indoor cat door or can be installed in an exterior door (except in metal doors).

We carry many other styles in addition to electronic cat doors. Whether you are looking for cat doors for doors or cat doors for walls you will find what you are looking for at Americas-Pet-Store.com.
