Automatic Coop Door Openers: Anyone have a Brinsea or a Cheeper Keeper?

Does anyone have either of these? They both have good amazon reviews but the Cheeper Keeper has a lot more. They are ungodly expensive so they ought to be decent, ha. Most interested in reliability. Right now we have a regular pulley door so would need to work with that. TIA!

I don't have one but if I ever do would seriously think on the ADOR1. It's a great design with intelligent feature of last call and has a sprocket to open the door making it locked when shut not secured via gravity. Can be installed in the coop or out. Depending on design of coop can be installed vertical or horizontal. Again, the door is moved via a cog hence the ability to be horizontal. I've looked at a lot of auto doors and none really shinned by design excepting this one.
