Automatic Chicken Coop Door Controller and Winding Motor


#1

We are wanting to manufacture an automatic chicken coop door opener with timer function, light sensor, battery and 110v with a LED screen that a person can program the unit. Is there anyone on here that knows about the best types of components to use and how they work together?
Thank you
Cooper

Hello Robert
I went through the information that you sent on the fellow making an automatic chicken door with Arduino. I was hoping to find someone that could design the unit as a single board. Timer, motor controller, LCD all on one board. Do you know anyone that could help me with that? I am trying to develop a commercially viable product.
Thank you,
Cooper

Looking at amazon, these products currently range from 150~250 US$:

There’s also a kickstarter project:

You can talk to one of our: Design Service Providers

But this product will take $ to bring to market, that sorta looks saturated already.
