    I already have a electric fence 6V solar charger and battery in the remote area of my lot that the coop will be going this summer. I would like to install an automatic coop door but can't seem to find any auto doors that use 6V, they all seem to run on 12V. Does anyone have a suggested product, or DIY solution for me. I am handy and can build, but electricity is NOT my strong suit so if it is DIY detailed instructions are appreciated.

    Thanks,
    D

    I see that the Add-A-Motor solar timer can work with a 6V battery. Has anyone used it in conjunction with an electric fence and solar fence charger?
