The ADOR1 Automatic Chicken Coop door opener is easily installed on the wall of your chicken coop. It opens the door at dawn and closes it in the evening when it gets dark. The ADOR1 will automatically open and close the door daily using just an internal 6 volt lantern battery.

Pros - No need to get up early
No need to have someone open the coop or close it if we are gone away on vacation
No need to have electricity attached to it
Cons - If it is cloudy due to a storm the door will close earlier than its suppose to
I own two of these and they work great, customer support is awesome to.
"Saved me from being the chicken doorwoman!!"
Pros - Received when expected, easy to install, love the morse code flashing light, love the sprocket door lift, option to add accessories, option to run off battery or solar, very strongly built, I can see the blinking red light from my house
Cons - Programming instructions were not very clear but we figured it out.
After doing A LOT of research, I felt that this one was the best design. I felt that my chickens would be safest with the sprocket design rather than the roll up string.
I called the company to see if the door had shipped and when I could expect its arrival; I'm horrible about checking email. I spoke to Rod, he was extremely helpful and gave me some pointers. I was stressed because we were going on vacation for 2 weeks, we didn't want anyone to have to be a slave to our chicken door and we didn't want them to not be secure at night. When we returned home, the door was still working perfectly and we have had no issues with the Ador1! We couldn't be more satisfied!!
We have had to push back the door closing time since we put up an awning to prepare for winter, it took away from some of the ambient lighting. This has been one of our best purchases!! Purchased 29 May, 2017
"Saves me a lot of time"
Pros - Works well, long battery life, lots of features, mounts easily.
Cons - Doesn't work well when the battery cover is off. Drafty.
I've owned the ADOR1 since July and it opens at sunrise and closes at sunset every day. A big time saver for me. I plan on adjusting it so that it opens a few hours after sunrise to hopefully get my 5month old birds laying soon.Dee Heath likes this.
