    4/5,
    "Auto Door pricey but Great so far!!"
    Pros - Aluminum and composit construction for no rot/rust. Battery backup. Can set however long before / after sunrise / sunset you want to function
    Cons - pricey, only a year warranty which are the only reason it got 4.5 vs 5 stars
    I bought the advanced model so I could use the additional features and got the entire door although the motor itself is available at a lower cost.
    Have had only a couple months so we will see long term how it goes, but very pleased with it so far.
    Cheapest place I found was Fleming
    I love the fact that it allows you to open in the morning however long before/after sunrise and close however long after sunset with no worries.
    It knows your location and adjusts throughout the year according to sunrise / sunset tables for your location.
    Electric with battery back up. If you hook solar panels you can run off batteries alone.

    I have this one as well, Greg. Absolutely no complaints about it. I just ordered the solar panel that goes with it, haven't installed it yet tho.
