Thank you to Amish Built Coops for giving us a video of our doors on the coops. They include our Automatic Chicken Coop Door's on their coop's.


Loving my D20 coop door motors. 

I thought I would share my set ups to maybe help other customers with ideas. 

I will be moving these once I get a new bigger coop built.

The doors themselves are 0.063” thick aluminum painted with epoxy paint. The door rails or guides are pieces of 5/4 deck flooring boards ripped down to the needed width and a router was used to groove out the actual slot the doors ride in. If I had this to do over, I would hold the guide rails up about an inch to keep dirt from gathering in the bottom and holding the door up. I keep having to clean them out. 

The battery is a Duracell Ultra 12 volt 8ah. It runs both doors. I have 2 timers, one for each door. I have the timers offset so as not to run both doors at the same time. The timers are 12 volt and bought off Amazon for around $9 each. The battery would probably handle both doors at once, but why push it if you don’t have to?

The solar panel is 1.5 watt bought from Harbor Freight for around $14. It does fine keeping the battery fully charged. 
The battery box I already had. They can be found at Wal-Mart or Amazon for around $10.

The motor covers I made to keep the motors dry and clean. The covers are made of Plexiglass just because I had some laying around. I would recommend using Lexan if covers are needed. Lexan would be much easier to work with. I will be mounting these indoors when the new coop is built.

Thank you,

Paul

This is a wonderful means for making your Automatic Chicken Coop Door Solar/Battery Powered. But Automatic Chicken Coop Door highly suggests mounting the motor inside the coop so it is not easily exposed to the elements. This will ensure long term use of our Model D20 Motors.  


We have a variety of 20 chickens that share two henhouses.  I built a corridor of sorts to join the two coups together and allow for a single entrance/exit for the birds.  We live in hawk country in Maine so I have installed netting in their run areas to prevent casualties.  After a year so far so good.

The Door from AutomaticChickenCoopDoor.com comes with a basic timer but can be easily unplugged to use a WeMo or Raynic (any brand should work) Wi-Fi controller with your phone. If you have your coop close enough to the house to have a steady Wi-Fi signal it's easy to set up and will save you from having to run out in the rain or snow to open or close the coop door.

 

Thanks for easy install. Great quality product!

Thank you Community Chickens for your review on our Automatic Chicken Coop Door. Here is the link to their review.


Rita: This is a do-it-yourself door crafted similar to the Automatic Chicken Coop Door. Purchased the automatic door opener from you. I have a predators in the form of coyotes, skunks, and hawks (maybe a few others). As you can see, these aren't chickens; they're Guinea Fowl. Bought the motor/opener and made the door. Has been working fine. About 2 years ago.

I love the automatic chicken coop door and it has changed my life! It has worked reliably since I purchased it from you June 2014 (Currently 2016 at time of email). Lucia Caruanalucia

I absolutely love my auto coop door. I bought one for a friend 2 years ago and one for myself close to a year ago and I'm grateful. Not only do I have peace of mind that the hens are safely at home each night to roost but I can he more flexible with my own return schedule home. Not to mention the little extra time I get in the morning since they allow themselves out on their own. Keep up the good work in the coop and in the villages of India!!! All the best, Ray Powers

Not bad for two women senior citizens. Love not getting up early to let my girls out, now that it has started getting cold here in Upstate South Carolina. Thanks for your honesty in your advertisement of this product. It was easy, simple and works like a charm. Thanks again! Greer Giegerich

I have peace of mind knowing that my chickens will get out early and the door will automatically close at dusk. We can go about our busy lives and not worry because we know the door will close and open automatically. We are the envy of our chicken friends. Many thanks, Kelly Ward

Gina Louise using Automatic Chicken Coop Door for their Ducks. "Here’s a picture of our gang using the automatic chicken door. Despite their tender age of 2 weeks, the chickens have already learned how to use the door independently. When we manually activate the door, they all troop outside, and the ducklings follow them! Good fun!"  -Gina Louise-

I absolutely love your doors! So easy to install and they look great! Before your automatic doors I was always watching the clock and wanted to be home before dark, now we are free again without the worry of our babies being harmed. The first door I purchased went in our main coop (I sent you pictures of it), the second door I purchased for my daughters main coop and the third I just bought will go in our smaller coop, as I am having to go out every night to lock the babies up and again early morning to open their door. Can’t wait to get this door and get it installed. We have eleven chickens. Thank you so much! ~Candy Diaz~
