This La Terceira automatic chicken coop door closes after dark and opens at daybreak.
Only a few screws to put!
Working principle of automatic chicken coop door:
In the morning, when the light is sufficient, a gear motor winds the braid so that the door goes up and releases the hens.
In the evening, after dark, the gear motor automatically releases the braid until the chicken coop door is closed.
A LIPO battery stores the energy of the sun for an autonomy of 2 months without sun.
It is possible to adjust the time of opening and closing of the chicken coop automatic door. For example, if you have a noisy rooster, you can release it up to 3 hours after sunrise.
Our new circuit consumes very, very little power, which allows the closing module to recharge sufficiently even in the shade, without direct sunlight.

Origin of the name “La Terceira“:
Terceira in Portuguese means third.
This door is the third to be invented, it is also composed of three parts: the closing module, the aluminum tracks and the door panel.
I lived for 2 years in Terceira, an island in the Azores archipelago, the third largest, in the middle of the Atlantic.
Giving this name to a product is for me a way to remind how welcoming the Portuguese are and how beautiful this island is.
This automatic chicken coop door meets the Made in Jura – France charter
