RFID cat flaps

I'm about to move house and would like to fit a cat flap in my new place, but I'd prefer not to have an "always open" one, and I definitely don't want the cats to have to wear collars.

Since the cats are already chipped, it struck me that the obvious solution was a cat flap with a RFID scanner.

Unfortunately, the only reference I've found to such a thing says they only sell within Europe.  Does anybody know whether anyone imports them in New Zealand?

Er.. alas no.

When and where are you moving? :)

No, but I've used one of the magnetic ones. Took the cat a day or 2 to work out (and he ended up too fat to use it), but it worked well otherwise.

If all else fails, I could buy it for you and post it on...
