The Perfect Time to Add an Automatic Coop Opener

Maintaining a farm-style property is a complicated process that involves a great amount of daily work to stay on schedule. Most property owners don't have time to waste while they have daylight, especially when taking care of livestock and farm birds. If you own chickens, you've undoubtedly experienced the hassle of corralling them in and out of their coop. With a Coop Controls automatic coop door opener, you can focus on your daily tasks without needing to worry about letting your chickens in and out of their coop, no matter the season. The perfect time to add an automatic coop opener to your farm-style property is any time of the year!

The standard Coop Controls coop door opener system will operate reliably every day. Using photosensor eyes to detect the level of natural light, your operator will open at dawn and close at dusk. Every unit’s smart control box will have the option for customizing the timer which activates the coop door opener. By following the instructions that are included with each kit, your Coop Controls system will work the way that you need it to. The quality manufacturing and testing that each unit undergoes will provide safety for your chickens and convenience for you, and ensures lasting functionality that is backed by a 12 month warranty.

Our customers enjoy the convenience of an easy installation when adding a Coop Controls automatic coop door opener to their properties. Every component needed for installing your unit will be included with your purchase to make each step of the process simple and intuitive. A standard kit will contain every hinge, bracket, and fastener required for an adequate installation, along with a push button and a 12 Volt rechargeable battery. The entire process, from purchase to operation, is designed to be as seamless as possible to make sure minimal time is wasted.

To provide power to a Coop Controls automatic coop door opener, the included 12 Volt battery is rechargeable. We recommend using an available AC transformer to charge your battery. However, if your coop is not located near this kind of power source, a preferable alternative is to use solar power. A 10 Watt solar panel can be installed alongside your system to generate renewable energy, charging your battery with daily sunlight. Perfect for off the grid properties such as farms, solar installation is the first choice for many customers who choose to use clean energy. A solar edition of the standard Coop Controls kit is available for purchase, including a premium 10 Watt Monocrystalline Solar Panel and the necessary mounting equipment. Due to the daily operation frequency being minimal, your battery will most likely never run out of energy with either of these reliable powering options.

Having our system installed adds protection to your coop from predators at night. With your chickens gathered inside of their coop consistently every night, animals such as coyotes, wolves, and opossums may be more deterred from attempting to attack them. This layer of security will not always stop predators from entering the coop itself, however, and will only function to provide shelter to the chickens at night. Your chickens may need to be trained to go inside the coop when the sun goes down, and the quality of the coop’s structure itself will ultimately be the defining factor in their nightly safety.

The coop door opener will work consistently and provide many benefits throughout the entire year, no matter what season. As the seasons change, the amount of sunlight each day will be affected, and your system will adapt accordingly. This feature makes it so you don’t have to change your plans to ensure the safety of your chickens, since your system will do it for you. Although the days may become shorter, your Coop Controls automatic coop door opener will work without fail and keep your chickens sheltered. Your daily schedule may vary throughout the year, so adding the convenience of a Coop Controls system is an upgrade that is worthwhile at any time!
