Easy to assemble. Works as expected. We have been using this for a little over one month on the dusk and dawn setting. And the girls go in before it even closes, no one has been left outside! Allows us to go on short trips without worrying.
Absolutely amazed at the genius of this product. Complete game changer. All chicken owners should have one.
Automation completely changed the amount of time I personally have to spend tending the coop morning and evening. It frees me up to be out of town for the day without stressing about my flock. I come home late at night and they are all tucked safely away in their coop. So amazing.
It does require some time and patience to fit the door but the instructions are reasonably easy to follow.
Our chickens instantly used the door and are so much easier to manage when we go away by using the light sensor mode.
Best purchase thus far! No more getting up early or feeling terrible if I am late to close the door for them!
We have had this door installed for over a month now and we are extremely happy with it. We originally got the door to make going out of town much easier (i.e. we wouldn't need to have someone come over twice a day to open/close the chicken coop).
I cant comment on the durability of the product yet. However, I have used both the manual time and light sensor setting and they both work great.
We love our new auto-door. We have it setup based on time. The install was pretty easy. Makes our life easier knowing our chickens will get locked in the coop at night even if we are late coming home. It's perfect!
Reqlly glad I got this. It positions the electric unit in the perfect spot and makes it easier.
Really pleased with this. It has particularly helped me stop worrying if i am a little late home and my girls are then safely tucked away. I gave 4 not 5 stars as I am not confident about the light sensor as yet and have resorted to using the timer only and changing it every couple of days as the nights draw in. It is however worth every penny!
