    Adding a motion dector for house alarm to pet flap?

    Security Specialists

    Can I extend my house alarm to a pet flap? By that I mean, just as you have motion dectors on windows as part of a home alarm system, could I attach one to my pet flap too?

    "In theory yes.

    Depending on the systems capabilities, you can either have it to notify you locally by making a sound or have it so it triggers the alarm off every time.

    Again, it really depends what system you have and it’s capabilities, normally your standard DIY alarms won’t incorporate this function but if you have had it installed by a reputable company, the likeliness is it will.

    Hope this helped.
