This automatic hatch can be mounted in the chicken coop. Thanks to its remote solar cell, it will work with brightness and automatic day and night detection.

It is ideal for homemade chicken coops.


Your automatic chicken coop door, automatically closes your chicken coop after dark and opens it at sunrise.
Assembled in the Jura, your large automatic chicken coop hatch has been designed to maximize its resistance to nighttime intrusions.

Requirements for your Terceira XL automatic solar hen house:

The solar cell of your automatic chicken coop door must be in the sun from time to time, it needs 30 minutes of sunshine per day in good weather.
It is the solar cell which is used to detect the luminosity, as the solar cell is deported, the automatic hatch can possibly work in the dark, inside the chicken coop.
If your automatic chicken coop door is placed on soft ground (earth), you may need to put a stopper at the bottom of the door, for example a small wooden slat (not supplied).

Principle of operation of the chicken coop automatic hatch:

Your chicken coop door works completely autonomously thanks to solar energy.
The solar cell is used to recharge the battery as well as to measure the luminosity in order to detect if it is daytime.
It is possible to shift the opening and closing time of the door, by default, it is 15 minutes after sunset and 15 minutes after sunrise.
A LIPO battery (same technology as in a smartphone) stores energy and restores it for 2 months of autonomy without sunlight.
