Help! Problem with Automatic Door- Ador1 - Page 2

post #11 of 12

I do have to admit programming it can be a pain - I get distracted and lose count of the flashes. :/

 

Hope you get it to work for your flock!

This morning I replaced the board inside my Ador with an extra one that I had purchased.  As soon as I connected the battery it started to beep.  Also I set up my hanging light with a timer like I had it before (it will come on at 7:00 am DST for an hour and then go off and then come back on again at 7:30 pm DST for an hour, and I also set it for last call.  Tonight I'll see what happens.  I never needed the last call for my older chickens when they were chicks.  This bunch of chicks have a mind of their own.  When the light goes on or off the door usually closes within minutes.  As the days get longer I can adjust the timer if needed.
