Chicken house door opener

Mon Dec 02, 2013 9:40 pm

I have a few chickens and I was very surprised by the cost of an automatic door opener.
The door needs to open when it gets light in the morning. And then needs to close when it gets dark. I am looking at wiring it up to a standard R/C servo for R/C cars or boats to keep the cost down.

Does anyone know of any software already around that can do this? or could someone help with this. I own a Omlet Eglu hen house and with over 25k sold in the UK and no auto door closers made for them I am sure this could be big.

I am not in anyway into electronics so i don't have a clue so not tech stuff please.

All I need is a box which I can plug a servo in and away I go.

I{m sure you can do this without a RPi. Try Arduino
