We’ve had the coop secure for 2 months now and it works a treat! It does everything that was promised.
  • Australian made with 2 year warranty gives me a lot of confidence in the product
  • Quick delivery and great feedback from Dan
  • Very easy to set up - took me 15 minutes from start to finish.
  • I could use my existing door and because the unit can handle up to 1.4kg it is far better than so many others on the market. My door weighs just over 1kg
  • Once the sensor was adjusted, the unit has worked very consistently
  • The dopey chicken that stays under the door (that fat Faverolle you can see in the photo) isn’t hurt by the door when it comes down. It rests on the chicken and then stops allowing the chicken to retreat into the coop. Once she moves the door continues to come down.
I thought I would have a problem with a sensor light that shines onto the coop when the dogs set it off at night. However I adjusted the delay timer to about 10 mins which prevents the door from opening when the sensor light comes on. The light turns off within the 10 mins and consequently the door stays shut.
I’m very happy with the Coop Secure. Not having to get up at the crack of dawn to let the girls out is a big plus.

Coop Secure installed on a coop

I sustained a back injury in 2000 that has stopped me from doing a lot off the things that I used to do in my everyday life before my accident. Before I had my accident I was very active and used to do a lot of things that involved the kids and one of them was having chickens.

About 12 months ago I decided I wanted chooks again, I had a coop built but found it was difficult opening and closing the coop along with daylight saving every single day with my condition, as I'm on crutches and also in a wheelchair.

I came across Coop secure so I purchased it and have found it to absolutely exactly what I needed, I'm not always up too letting the chooks out or locking them up every day without asking someone & Coop secure absolutely works like a charm.

I like the chooks to free range in the garden as much as possible that's why I want them out of the coop as much as possible.

Overall I am very impressed with the Coop Secure & wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone that has poultry of any kind, great product.

I am very happy with my automatic chicken coop door. It works exactly as described and closes after the chooks have gone in with no adjustments.

Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful product you have made! I’m currently in the late stages of pregnancy. When my husband is away for work, I go to bed early and have to set my alarm to wake me up at 9.30pm to lock our chooks away. So, this has been an amazing little invention for me as I can just forget about it and know they are safe. We found it easy to install and operate. We will be using this for a very long time! Thank you.

We absolutely LOVE this product, it works like a gem and my husband had no trouble installing it. Now I can sleep in every morning (or at least not wake up with a startle wondering if my chooks are calling me). At night it often rains here with the afternoon storms, so not having to wander down in the rain anymore to close the coop is brilliant. Wonderful product, for a very reasonable price. Thank you for giving us some time back and making our lives (and our chooks lives) better. Very grateful and highly recommend.

I will definitely be recommending your product to anyone who talks chickens with me in the future. Every morning when I wake and realise, I don’t have to get out of bed, just for the chickens, a little bit of happy karma comes floating your way. 😉

What a great unit! It has replaced a failed popular one. This one is 10x better! It was very simple to set up. I've had the one that looks like a clock that lasted only a few months, another unit that took many reads of the instructions... yours took just one! .... great job! Congratulations on a very superior product. Thanks again,

Update from Simon, January 2023

Just a short note to say how delighted I am with the 'coop secure'. It has worked day after day for over 4 years on the original battery. This morning, the string broke, it was an easy fix, its repaired and running again in minutes, much better than the one that looks like a clock that broke within weeks, I sent it to be repaired and never got it back! keep up the good work! Thanks again Simon, Hervey Bay, QLD.


Hello, my wife ordered a motor a few weeks ago and since you left a nice message on the box I thought I'd show you how I used it. I managed to get a door 500x600mm door under 1kg (coop Secure limit 1.4kgs) by cutting a few holes… so now even my biggest turkeys can use it. Thought it might be handy for people who want to know how big a door can be!

I just wanted to say how impressed i am with this little unit. Not only is it properly constructed, its also it significantly cheaper than the last piece of garbage i had (one of those round black plastic things with the little plastic bell and chook on top of it). I really like the error code LED on the board and the proper, tough waterproof enclosure is fabulous. The little swivel on the bottom is great too, its so refreshing to find a product that has actually had some practical thought put into it's design.

Once again thank you, this is a fabulous product and exceeded my expectations!

As an urban chicken owner, I made a recent and wise purchase to firstly, protect my chickens from the local fox population and to take the stress away from myself and my partner who both do shift work and are quite often not around to secure and release our chickens in/from their coop.

We chose the automated option!

The Coop Secure Automatic Chicken Door Opener was our choice.
It has been, by far, the best money we have spent in a long time!!!
Its very easy to install. The parts needed such as the aluminium channeling were cheap to buy from the local hardware store. We used the existing galvanised heavy gauge mesh as the sliding door.
It took about 10 minutes to install and was up and running that evening, ready for our chickens to go to their roost.
It locks them in just as the sun is almost completely set so our chickens dont get locked out if they are a bit slow and it reopens at first light. The opening and closing times can be adjusted to what times suits the best for you and your chickens.

It closes gently, smoothly and slowly and also the same action on opening. So no chance of slow chickens getting caught under the closing door.

I would highly recommend this amazing, Australian made product to anyone who values their chickens and also wants the convenience and peace of mind that they are safe and secure at night and free to roam during the day.
