The ChickenGuard Extreme features an extra-powerful motor, enabling the unit to lift larger coop doors weighing up to 4kg. This robust motor is also well-suited for use in areas of Australia that experience extremes in temperature and precipitation of rain and snow.
A seal protects the mechanisms to ensure the motor continues to work regardless of the weather.
Predators such as foxes, owls and wild animals like to strike at night. This automatic coop door opener and closer ensures your hens are securely tucked in when predators lurk outside.
The beauty of this system is that once you have programmed the unit to operate when you want, you will be able to come home later and sleep in longer with a peace of mind that comes from knowing your chickens are safe.
ChickenGuard ensures it is easy to program and use. In fact, the extra-large buttons allow you to set the timers even with gardening gloves on!
Program each day to open or close using either a light sensor or timer. A light sensor will ensure your hens are outside at dawn, just when they are waking up, and will close as night falls. However, if those times do not suit your henhouse, then you can choose the precise hour and minute for the door to operate.
