We created Wayzn because we wanted our dogs to have access to the yard when we weren’t home, but didn’t want the security and installation costs and headaches that come with the traditional dog door. We loved the idea of using a smartphone to control our existing sliding doors because it would give us the flexibility to go anywhere, anytime. Now we simply get notified when our dogs want to go in or out, and after scanning the area we can open the door with a single click. We quickly discovered it could be useful when at home as well and developed an automatic mode so we never have to get off the couch.

Our dogs love it, and so do we!
