Pet door pretty neat
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.
