Video: Video: Automatic chicken coop door made from a linear actuator
Today I am using a linear actuator as a mechanism to automatically close and open a chicken coop door. This is a very easy DIY automatic chicken coop door. I've done this previous (see link below) but I am now working off a simpler design (see link below). This design uses a DC timer / controller switch, linear actuator, 12v 5a power supply and a electromagnetic relay. Links to purchase all items below.
