Do It Yourself

Our friend and creator of the Wall-E Robot, Mike Senna demonstrates his version of the automated chicken coop.

   Keeping chickens in your home is becoming more common, acceptable and an easy method of local food production. With that said, rearing chickens at home can be a lot more than just collecting the eggs. It does come with a set of responsibilities of ensuring they are well fed, healthy; they have access to water, sunlight, ventilation and much more. But most of all, you need to be able to shut the chickens in and let them out of their coop daily, which does require a bit more time and effort.

   Now, with a little bit of technical know-how and some outside the box (or house) thinking, you can now learn to automate your chicken coop door. Our friend and creator of the Wall-E Robot, Mike Senna demonstrates his version of the automated chicken coop.

PA-06 - the Waterproof Linear Actuator IP67M, was used in this application
   The PA-06 actuator that Mike uses, is Progressive Automations most highly rated actuator for outdoor use and wet environments. With an IP rating of 67M, this actuator can operate fully submerged under water. This makes the PA-06 the perfect actuator for most outdoor and marine applications.

   Mike manages to get a more bang for his buck by using some links to achieve a mechanical advantage. In doing so, he gets the chicken coop to open almost a full 18”, with only a 6” stroke actuator. Using a simple BBQ grill, some wheels and guide rails, and one sturdy actuator, Mike has created a simple yet brilliant automated door for his chicken coop.

   Mike and other DIY inventors are changing the way we view technology and how this technology can be used in our society. Perhaps with more innovations like Mike’s Chicken coop auto door opener, we will see a whole world filled with simple, yet brilliant, automated solutions.

   In addition, with free Google’s home automation app, Mike let his chickens roam free using just a single voice command from the comfort of his own home. So now he can open and close the door from anywhere in the world. The command to open the door is aptly named “Chicken.”
