    Which auto door opener/closer to you use?

    Do you like it?

    what would you change about it?

    How much did you pay for it?

    Has it given you any trouble?

    I have a AIX Electronic and I love it. It was $160 but it works perfectly and I don't have to worry about forgetting to close the guillotine door. My granddaughter forget theirs last week and the lost 27 birds that night to a skunk.

    I have the VSB model and love it. Very simple to install and it has worked flawlessly.

    Original purchase price was $160 from Foy's

    I, too, bought the VSB from Foy's last week and it is already installed. It cost $160 plus the door. We are trying to stick with the light sensor, but the timer may be in the future!

    I bought the VSB one several years ago and bought it from the UK dealer since no one in the US sold it. It's worked great with no problems. I have the timer on mine but the door mine came with was to small so I made my own door to use with it out of diamond plate.

    Hoy's Pigeon Supply carries AXT door openers. I have one that opens and closes with a photo cell and it works great
