Description

This is the Chickenguard Premium Automatic Door Opener. 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 using high-grade materials, and the electronics are enclosed in a weather proof casing.

Fittings, batteries and detailed operating instructions are all included, and the unit is very simple to fit, set up and operate..

This product is extremely reliable, and has a 3-year warranty from Chickenguard.

It is suitable for fitting to all our chicken housing with metal pie-shaped doors. They can also be fitted to other poultry houses if required. If you have one of our older style house with a plastic door, you will need to order a replacement aluminium door (the Chickenguard unit is an option for this product).

    Chickenguard auto opener

    Should have bought this when I originally bought the Greenfrog Lodge last summer, but it was easy to fit retrospectively, and works beautifully. Pricey but worth it for the lie-ins!

    Just works

    Very simple to install and use with a Greenfrog coop. The different open/close setting options are useful. Having the auto opener means no need for early starts or late nights for us, as the chickens please themselves.

    chicken Guard

    makes life much easier ,knowing the chickens will be locked in safe ,if you are held up . i almost forgot to lock the chickens up ,on evening ,rushed out and it was getting dark ,and i did not have the guard on a timer , but the guard will shut ,when the light goes . so i got to chickens just as the guard closed .. what peace of mind ..Had no problems ,and once the guard had done its job ,it shuts of to save battery power

    chickenguard automatic dor opener

    So far so good. Easy to install with husband's help. Have adjusted the closing time with no problems. like the feature of being able to close it ahead of timer if you are in the garden and they are all in, and you are a bit paranoid like me. The chickens seem to like it. One took a bit of persuading. The door has dropped abit in its open position so i need to look at the video and sort that out, but not enough to effect its effectiveness. I hope I'm not jinxing it by being so positve, but the only negative thing is perhaps you do need to clean out the area where it closes as it won't close properly otherwise (stays open about an inch), but I do this about every three days. A very good thing, and the video explaining how to set it up is excellent. One last thing, it makes life so much nicer in the mornings, especially when the weather is not nice. I still go out there but when it suits me, and it is surprising how liberating this is.

    Chickenguard

    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)

    Door Opener

    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.

    Good, eventually

    Excellent delivery time, and the product works well. The instructions need sorting out as I had to phone for clarification.

    Does what it says on the can

    Our chickens can now get up and go to bed with the sun! They seem to enjoy not waiting for us in the morning.

    Easy to fit and use

    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.
