Pet owners who leave their animals at home for long stretches of the day often turn to dog sitters or doggie doors to let their pets in and out of the house. Wayzn thinks it has a better solution. The new Wayzn Smart Sliding Glass Door Opener is an app-powered device that lets you open and close a sliding door, remotely, whenever your pet needs. It will be on display at CES, and according to the company, it's already been named a CES 2020 Innovation Awards honoree.
The device fits in the track of standard sliding glass doors. It senses when your pet is at the door and sends you a notification, so you can let them in or out. You can also set the door to open and close automatically. The device sticks in place, so you don't have to drill or cut any permanent holes.
Wayzn can be controlled with the app, and it works with other smart-home devices, like Alexa and Nest speakers and cameras. As an added benefit, if you get locked out, you can ask Wayzn to open your sliding door through the app.
Wayzn costs $399, and the first two production runs have sold out. You can reserve the device online now. According to the company's website, the estimated wait time on new orders is three months.
