myQ Pet Portal is an automated doggie door
Chamberlain, which makes our favorite smart garage door opener controller, is showing a high-tech doggie door at CES that lets pets in and out of the house at will. The myQ Pet Portal also enables pet owners to track their animals’ activity from virtually anywhere. The system consists of a motorized panel, a camera, and a mic and speaker for two-way communication.
Unlike the typical pet door, however, the Pet Portal can’t be added to an existing door; instead, you’ll purchase an entire exterior door with the Pet Portal built in. The door is manufactured by the high-end doormaker Kolbe Windows and Doors and it’s not cheap: prices start at $2,999.
