We are novice chicken owners and a friend who has chickens told us that this product would save our marriage as we wouldn’t argue during the winter months who was going to have to go out to close the chickens up. Great product.
My chicken coop is 40+ years old. It had been several years since I had chickens but decided to get some layers this year. The door was easy to install and it's good to know that our chickens are safe, even if we can't get home in time to close them up.
We installed the auto chicken door and light. Installation went well. The existing coop door was a different size, so we cut a 1/4" piece of plywood to the new size and installed the door over it so chickens couldn't get into the door mechanism. My wife was getting up early to let the chickens out, now the auto door lets them out while she sleeps in. After 3 weeks, we've only used 10% of the battery charge, so looks like we'll be changing them 3 times per year at most. We're very happy with this purchase.
Simple to fit but the instructions for programming could be better. The video was very helpful but without wifi in the chicken run a good hard copy was needed so screen printing/frame grabbing from the video worked a treat.
I purchased this door because I heard about it from a friend. While it took a bit to get here because of the Rona Virus it was well worth the wait! The door is really robust and works as designed. It was easy to install on my wooden coop and the programming features are great. I have already recommended this door to several of our friends and I know two of them have placed orders. Will do another write up after the cold winter months ahead!
The automatic door is just as expected. Easy to operate and install, robust and looks good as well! Arrived super quick. Instructions easy to follow. Our girls learned to use it straight away. Very happy!
I have my automatic door for a week now and I really couldn’t be happier. My hubby said it was really easy to fit, and I opted to put it on the light setting but go with the default mode and it is working out brilliantly. The girls are tucked up safely before it closes in the evening and they are let out first thing in the morning saving me early get up’s which I am very happy about. It is giving me great peace of mind knowing they are locked away safely every evening and don’t have to wait to be let out every morning. Product of the century in my book, thank you.
We’ve had the autodoor 4 weeks and it’s worked brilliantly from day 1. Makes it so easy and stops the need/worry of getting up early or getting out just after they’ve gone to bed to shut the door. Wasn’t easy to guess what luminescence level to set but was guided by what the manual had set and it’s fairly quick to adjust if needed. Only had one occasion they were ‘locked out’ but that was after I’d sprinkled some strong smelling redmite powder in their bedding and I think they didn’t like/were unsure of the smell. But it was simple to manually open it, even in the dark and they quickly went in.
We love our Automatic Coop Door! It was super easy to install (my 14-year-old daughter installed it by herself in just a few minutes). Our chickens are incredibly happy, and so are we. It is so nice knowing that our chickens are safe and independent, even while we are gone. It only took a few days for our chickens to get trained to use it. We have no regrets in buying this!
The Autodoor is amazing. I installed it on my Eglu Cube MK1 in November 2019along with the coop light, set it up to open and close on the daylight level and it transformed my life! Chickens were happy with it immediately. It is only today over 9 months later that I have changed the batteries.......fantastic product.
