he Power Pet Door was first conceived in 1986 and since then has gone through research and development, being perfected all along the way. The early result was very similar in principle, to the product we now produce - a slim, compact dc motor drive that uses a cable to lift a lightweight panel, then return the panel slowly and safely with a brake-assisted gravity feed. Our first production version, the PP series was introduced in 2000.
In early 2006, we introduced the current PX series of Power Pet doors, which uses an engineered ABS plastic composite that is actually stronger and more precise than its metal predecessor. Our VP of Engineering, Bob Schilken, one of the most accomplished analog electronic engineers in the world, contributed the extremely creative directional ultrasonic detection circuitry that performs rings around conventional infared, magnetic and RFID circuits. Bob's ingenious circuitry reliably opens the door only for your pet's collar and only when your pet is on a direct approach, not when just wandering by or sleeping next to the door.
The PX series is phenomenally successful due to its affordability, reliability, installation ease and attractive cosmetic design, in fact earning spots on 3 TV shows, I Want That, Don't Sweat It, and House Detective .
Since unveiling our fully automatic pet doors, several competitors have attempted, unsuccessfully, to copy our patented design. We are proud to manufacture this extremely advanced product and we're sure that if you and your pets decide to give it a try, you will agree that “Nothing Compares to a Genuine Power Pet!” The Power Pet doors are offered in 2 sizes, Medium, for pets up to 30 lbs., and Large, for pets up to 90 lbs.
For our customers who want a wall installation, the optional wall tunnel makes installation easy and professional looking.
