    Hi,

    Anyone using automatic door openers? Which one? Anyone using them for a larger door? Something Goose sized? Thanks.

    I am. Built it with a automatic car antenna motor. Learned it from reading on BYC.

    [​IMG] I use the AddAMotor one. I had a piece of metal already for a door. Just needed the motor. It is made for coops.

    I bought here: Discount Automation

    It was the cheapest store I could find it at. And there is a solar kit for it as well.

    We've had it for about 1-1/2 years now and never had a problem with it. [​IMG]

    Good luck!
