This is the Chickenguard Auto Door Opener. It is suitable for fitting to all our current chicken housing with metal Pie-shaped doors (The fitting holes are pre-drilled for you, at the top of the front panel). They can also be fitted to other poultry houses if required.
The unit can be set to open and close on light levels or at specific times. It also has manual open and close buttons. It is designed and manufactured in the UK, and is simple to fit, set up and operate.
Fittings and detailed operating instructions are included. You will, however, need to suppy four AA batteries (Alkaline recommended), which should last approximately a year.

I bought this for my medium size chicken house and found the little holes to put the screws in. The set up was fairly easy but a little cumbersome though i have not found the light sensor works that well, i use the timer to close and open the door. its working well so far and saves a job in the evening. the string tends to stretch a little though. (Thanks - Chickenguard advise string will stop stretching after a few days, and sensor can be easily adjusted - GFD) Jo on 20th Jul 2015
Brilliant automatic opener which is so easy to install and use. Saves all those early mornings tramping out in all weather. Love the choice between timer or light level to trigger the mechanism and as the area over my coop is covered - the level of light option is essential.

Excellent delivery time, and the product works well. The instructions need sorting out as I had to phone for clarification. Sue Clifton from Wadworth, S Yorks United Kingdom on 19th Nov 2014
Our chickens can now get up and go to bed with the sun!
They seem to enjoy not waiting for us in the morning. Elaine Johnson from Severn Stoke, Worcs United Kingdom on 19th Nov 2014
Got this to replace a VSB auto opener which has been a fiddly pain in the neck. This is easier to use and fit and great options with the timed or light sensor open/close. As usual I had really good customer service from Adrian. i can't fault Greenfrog. Gina from Brereton, Cheshire United Kingdom on 19th Nov 2014
