Smart Pet Doors

SureFlap's Door for Pets Can Be Controlled by a Smartphone

— April 15, 2017 — Lifestyle
SureFlap is a British company that specializes in making smart pet gadgets, including the world's first app-controlled microchip door for pets.

The Microchip Pet Door works alongside a central hub from the company and the Sure Petcare app, making it possible for a pet owner to remotely lock or unlock the pet door with a simple swipe of their phone.

While the door for pets can be installed just as easily as a normal pet door, it keeps tabs on a pet's activity and keeps pet owners in control. With the app, pet owners are able to set schedules and even curfews for pets, so that they may be kept safely indoors overnight and let themselves out in the morning.
Trend Themes
1. Smart Pet Gadgets - Creating app-controlled, microchip pet doors is a new trend that takes advantage of the growing smart home market and preferences for ease-of-use.
2. Remote Pet Monitoring - The inclusion of pet activity monitoring and scheduling options in microchip pet doors is a new trend that can improve pet safety and owner peace-of-mind.
3. Internet of Things (iot) for Pet Products - Synchronizing pet products with other IoT devices creates a new trend that provides convenience and connectivity for pet owners.
Industry Implications
1. Home Automation - Smart pet doors are a new product that can be marketed to the home automation industry, providing an innovative and useful addition to the smart home experience.
2. Pet Products - The challenge of creating connected pet products, such as the microchip pet door, presents a trend for innovation in the pet industry.
3. Smartphone Apps - Creating the interface between pet owners and their pet products through smartphone apps is a new and growing trend with disruptive potential in the app development industry.
