The ChickenGuard Premium P5 Automatic Door Opener can be set to open and close dependent on light levels or at specific times, so you don't have to wake up when your chickens do! It also includes a manual open and close function.

The 'Door Closed' security light is visible for 100m, in case you're wondering if you closed it or not!

The P5 features automatic door calibration to make the installation process as simple as possible, and an automatic stop feature which protects your chickens from getting trapped as the door lowers, preventing the string from getting tangled if there is an obstruction.

Designed and manufactured in the UK using high-grade electronics encased in a weatherproof casing, the ChickenGuard Premium P5 is very simple to fit, set up and operate and includes all fixings, batteries and operating instructions. It now features extra big buttons so you can programme the unit with your gloves on in the winter.

Capable of lifting 1KG, the unit is extremely reliable and includes a 3-year warranty.

Suitable for fitting to all Nestera plastic chicken coops with sliding doors. 

Please note, the Auto Door Opener on the coop customiser features an older model, which is a different colour to this Premium P5. 

Includes:

1 x ChickenGuard Premium P5 Auto Opener
1 x ChickenGuard User Manual
4 x 25mm A2 Stainless Steel M4 Bolt, Washer and Nyloc Nut
4 x AA Batteries

questions

frequently asked questions

  • How is the ChickenGuard Automatic Door Opener powered?

    The Premium P5 model we supply for our coops are powered by 4 x AA batteries (which are included with the unit) or can be connected to mains power via its USB port.

  • Why is the low battery warning light flashing when I’ve replaced the batteries?

    The warning light works on a voltage basis and therefore won’t give a false reading. Check the batteries you’re using are new and fully charged.

  • Why does the LCD display not stay illuminated?

    Don’t worry, this is normal. To preserve battery life, the LCD display is designed to enter ‘sleep mode’ after a period of inactivity. You can ‘wake’ it again by pressing the Menu button.

  • My automatic door opener is set up correctly but it’s not working...

    Please ensure all 4 x AA batteries are new and inserted correctly, and that the battery cable wire is not being pinched between the lid and the box. It’s also worth checking that any connector cables haven’t been accidentally loosened while fitting the unit. If these steps don’t offer a solution, drop us a line at support@nestera.eco and we’ll have you up and running again in no time.

  • Why is my automatic door opener displaying the ‘Door Jam’ message?

    This indicates that the motor in the unit is having difficulty lifting the coop door. This could be for one of two reasons; either your door is not sliding easily in its runners, or the cord is tangled. Make sure the runners that hold the coop’s door in place are free from debris, and then open the unit to ensure the cord is wound correctly on the spindle. Please note, the unit cannot be recalibrated with the lid removed, and simply removing and reinserting the batteries will not clear a ‘Door Jam’ message.

  • Why isn’t the light sensor working on my automatic door opener?

    The light sensor is designed to activate the coop door over a gradual light change. This ensures the door isn’t opened automatically in a lightning storm or in car headlights, for example. The sensor takes an average light reading every three minutes to account for this. Please note, if your automatic door opener is positioned near a floodlight or streetlight, this may affect the light sensor. It is best to position your coop away from ambient lighting.

  • How long is the cord on the automatic door opener?

    The cord provided with the unit is 1.5m long. Please bear in mind that this includes a small length that needs to remain wound around the spindle inside the unit.

  • Will the clock on the unit change automatically when the clocks go forwards/back?

    No, this needs to be done manually on the LUX settings. Don't worry, it only takes a moment.

  • How long is the warranty on the automatic door opener?

    ChickenGuard is the industry leader in automatic door openers and their weatherproof products are remarkably well made and very reliable. In the unlikely event that something goes wrong with your unit, they come with a 3-year warranty for your peace of mind.
