    I made my own with the add-a-motor chicken coop door plus a timer from walmart and I love them! =) have one on each of three coops.

    Closes and opens the door each morning and evening. You just have to make your own door and track. I haven't tried one of the premade models. I do have a pic of one of my doors I'll try to dig up..
