SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap Connect wins IoT Breakthrough Award
24th January 2019
We are delighted to announce that the SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap Connect has been awarded the Connected Pet Care Solution of the Year in the IoT Breakthrough Awards.
The IoT Breakthrough Awards are designed to recognise companies, technologies and products in the IoT sphere. We were up against 3,500 submissions and we were one of only six companies who won an award in the Consumer IoT category. Big name brands who won awards in some of the other categories included Sony, Toshiba, Dell and Samsung.
This award has been an exciting achievement for us as it outlines our technological achievements as a connected pet product company. Earlier this month, we showcased the Microchip Cat Flap Connect at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, which allowed us to introduce the product to a tech-savvy audience.
The Microchip Cat Flap Connect, the most advanced cat flap ever, sold out in 36 hours when we launched the product in summer 2018. It has already won three awards; a great achievement in just six months. In addition to the IoT Breakthrough Award, it has also won a Product Innovation Award in the 2018 Pet Industry Federation Awards and a Pet Product Innovation of the Year (Health/Technical) Gold Award in the 2018 Pet Quip Awards.
The Microchip Cat Flap Connect links to the Sure Petcare app via a Hub, allowing the user to lock the cat flap remotely from anywhere and receive notifications when their cat enters or leaves the house. Activity graphs give owners an overview of their pet’s normal patterns of behaviour, helping them to notice changes which could be a sign of illness or distress. In multi-pet homes, certain cats can be kept indoors whilst allowing other cats to come and go freely. It’s the perfect addition to any smart home.
The Microchip Cat Flap Connect is available to purchase from our website.
