Your La Terceira automatic solar chicken house door automatically closes your chicken house after dark and opens it at daybreak. Assembled in the Jura, your automatic door kit has been designed to maximize its resistance to nighttime intrusions.
Working principle of the automatic door for solar henhouse La Terceira :
Your henhouse door works autonomously thanks to solar energy (can be recharged even in the shade). 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.

Origin of the name “La Terceira“:
Terceira in Portuguese means third. This door is the third to have been invented, and is also made up of three parts: the closing module, the aluminum tracks and the door panel. I lived for 2 years on Terceira, an island in the Azores archipelago, the third largest in the world, right 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 henhouse door complies with the Made in Jura – France charter.
