Pet door pretty neat

SundayXtra - - LIFE / TECH -

LOWE’S has many prod­ucts for home safety in its Iris Smart Home So­lu­tion se­ries, launched in 2012, in­clud­ing some­thing for your four-legged fam­ily mem­ber.

The elec­tronic pet door is part of the sin­gle-user in­ter­face, where you can mon­i­tor and con­trol just about ev­ery­thing you want.

There’s a small elec­tronic sen­sor you put on a pet col­lar, and when your dog ap­proaches the door, the alarm turns off. After your pooch re-en­ters your home and the door comes to a rest, the alarm is armed again.

The sen­sor sys­tem pre­vents other an­i­mals from en­ter­ing through the door, which mea­sures ap­prox­i­mately 40.5 by 30 cen­time­tres and can be built into a wall or door.

An elec­tronic sched­ule can be set to al­low the door to be opened for up to five pets.

There are three modes from which to choose: au­to­matic, locked and un­locked. You can also mon­i­tor the com­ings and go­ings of your pets. The door uses four D-cell bat­ter­ies (not in­cluded). DE­TAILS: US$220; lowes.com.
