New for 2020: The Brinsea ChickSafe Advance! Brinsea's first ever advanced automatic door opener.
The Brinsea ChickSafe Advance is a tough and reliable, digitally controlled system for automatically closing your hen house door as light levels drop in the evening and opening the door as the sun rises, keeping your birds safe and giving you peace of mind.
The ChickSafe Advance is battery powered and easy to fit to any hen house with a vertical sliding (or hinged) door. Simply fix two screws into your hen house and attach the cord to your existing door. No manual calibration is necessary: the ChickSafe Advance automatically adjusts to the height of your hen house door.
The ChickSafe Advance is tough and can raise and lower any vertical door from 300 grams to 4 Kg in weight.
The Brinsea ChickSafe Advance has two systems to trigger the door to open or close: either by detecting changes in light level or using a real-time clock timer. It's also possible to program the system to be triggered by lowering light levels as well as a 'latest time to close' time setting.
The sensitivity of the falling light level is user adjustable and the software looks for slow changes in light so isn't affected by car headlights at night, for example. The Brinsea ChickSafe Advance has an indicator to show that the door is open, closed, battery low or fault alert.
The digital control system also allows the user to override the automatic system and immediately either open or close the door or hold the door in its current position until the override is switched off - handy if trying to isolate birds in the hen house. The control also allows the user to delay the opening of the door in the morning on 2 days out of 7 to a selected time which can be used to keep the birds contained at weekends, for example. The ChickSafe Advance also features an 'auto-stop' if a chicken is obstructing the door.
Brinsea ChickSafe Hen House Door Openers can be used with your existing sliding door or Brinsea's ChickSafe Hen House Door
Like all Brinsea's products, the ChickSafe Advance has a FREE 3 year guarantee, subject to online registration.

|I installed it to open two doors on my chicken and duck coop. The installation and setup was easy - well except that it didn't work at first because the batteries supplied in the box were dead - but as soon as I swapped them for some new ones it worked perfectly. Programming it was fine using the instruction manual.|
|This is an excellent product which allows various options to open/close the door to suit.I had a minor issue with my first door (after 2 1/2 years) and between The Incubator Shop and Brinsea my issue was sorted out with ease and a replacement product sent out to. Brinsea products are very good and their customer service is excellent (The Incubator Shop are also amazing!) Would definitely recommend|
|door opening very good . the programming was more complicated than some but once setup all fine. battery changing very easy.|
