    I train with a guy that has the dog's names on the boxes, it helps when he tells me to go get dog_______...I am guessing that he also has his tool box in the garage labeled and clearly marked...some people are just more OCD than others, or just plain organized

    Along with the names, I worry about people trying to feed them something thru the door or putting something in the water. But, maybe I worry too much.

I would think that an audio installation garage could do it as an add on feature.
    I sold car alarms back in the day. It would be very easy for an auto alarm installer to add door sensors to each dog door. Some alarms also have a sensor that puts a "bubble" around the vehicle. The sensitivity can be adjusted but you can set it up to warn people of the alarm if they got within a couple feet of the vehicle.
