Automatically Open & Close Coop Doors With Add-A-Motor Chicken Coop Motor (D20)
With the Chicken Coop Motor, your chicken coop door can open and close automatically according to a customizable time schedule. Easily protect your hens and eggs without getting out of bed, or even going home. Every day, the Chicken Coop Motor makes sure your chickens go in and out on schedule to save you time and hassle. Set one or multiple door openings and closings each day. Stops door at open and closed positions you set. Lifts and lowers a door up to 5 pounds. You can set one or multiple door openings and closings each day. Timed schedules can enhance egg production by exposing hens to longer periods of daylight and preventing them from re-entering the coop too soon. The motor can also foil small predators such as mice and snakes that sneak in to steal eggs after your hens are out. Raccoons, foxes, dogs, cats, coyotes, etc. Eventually give up and go elsewhere. The motor can even manage heat inside the coop. The Chicken Coop Motor works similar to a fishing reel. It has a reversible motor with adjustable stop settings. The motor can lift and lower a door up to 5 pounds, with door openings up to 25 inches. If your door swings open you can convert it to vertical lift by installing it in side-channels. I can leave my chickens for the weekend and not worry. My chickens make a ruckus if I don't open the door on time, and then my neighbors complain. My problem is I can't get up at that hour because of my schedule. I really appreciate the good sleep that I now get because of this motor. My husband gave it to me as a gift. I thought it was silly but now I'd never give it up. And I don't lose sleep wondering if I closed the door. I don't lose chickens and eggs to varmints like I used to. Motor paid for itself in a few months.

Controllers: Add-A-Motor recommends AC lamp timer switches, X-10 control, or battery with 12-volt timer.
