Product Description

Set your mind at ease with the ChickenGuard ASTi Premium Automatic Chicken Door Opener.

With a 1kg/2.2lb door lifting capacity, this door opener has low energy requirements; our popular automatic door opener operates on 4 – AA batteries for long battery life. Its configurable fail-safe mode allows you to program as to when the pop-hole door opens and closes.

Manually override the control by pressing one button. The door closes according to the programmed time, regardless of the level of light outside. Designed with almost every conceivable convenience in mind: extra large control buttons that can be operated by wearing winter gloves; a low battery warning indicator; and an integrated timer and light sensor. Easy to install, the ASTi Premium Automatic Chicken Door Opener does not require complicated wiring and cabling. Simply attach the control box to the front door of your chicken coop. Comes with a full 3-year warranty.

Great product

Very happy with this product. Bought a competitor product first and this was a complimentary one to go with that. However it’s made us wish we’d gone for this one first. It’s much better and has a more sensitive and useful light setting. Plus it’s cheaper!

Excellent product

The Chickenguard is well made and easy to install, with a very straightforward configuration process. It's attached to a new marine ply door made to fit existing runners. I've only had it for a month so can't comment on battery life, but it's working perfectly, set to open at 5.30am on the timer, and closing automatically at dusk 30-40 minutes after the last hen has gone to roost.

Peace of mind

This door is really good, easy to set up and install and gives you complete peace of mind even though the first few nights I would check they were all in and watch the door go down, would thoroughly recommend

Great for absent minded chicken keepers

This is the third Chicken Guard I have bought and all have been reliable. All have timer or manual opening and the Premium has light level triggered closing and opening. I wasn't sure if I could trust the door to open and close at the right times and was worried that my girls would be locked out, but it is perfectly timed and adjustable to different light levels.
These Chicken Guards are a life saver and great for when I get caught up with another task and forget to put the girls away on time. I also know that they can be up and about in the unlikely event that I sleep in.
Great product.

Excellent

This is the second chicken guard I have bought and although we haven't yet used this one I am sure it will be an equal success to the other one. Wonderful that one can leave it to automatically open and close the door at sunrise or sunset is a real boon. Would definitely recommend this product, although it seems expensive it does appear to be a thoroughly reliable well made product.

Can't get it to work on sensor or timer. Up and down buttons don't work either.
£150ish down the toilet!!!

Good product - troublesome delivery

The Chickenguard Premium performs well and I like the numerous ways in which the door opening and closing program can be altered such as changing the LUX and LUX delay or a timed opening/closure etc, I also found it easy to adjust the settings once I got the hang of it. I’ve just found out that rechargeable batteries aren’t recommended so batteries will probably need to be bought and changed three or four times a year unless there is a mains based supply but I haven’t had it long enough to gauge this.
Equestrian chose UPS for the delivery and there was a bit of a problem with it as UPS claimed not to have the full delivery address so it took well over a week before I received the unit. Probably more a failing with UPS as Equestrian did try to resolve the issue. I did like the fact that delivery was free and Equestrian had it in stock at a competitive price, unlike other suppliers I’d found!
