Great product! Interface is nice, setup was easy, and I am building another enclosure for other game bird types with plans to use the precise functionality of the features. Well done Coop tender!
Love the capabilities. Working flawless so far. Attached two heating panels (attached to wall in coop - well below max watt/amp draw) set to 40F. Have. It used the fan/light option. For lights I use Philips Hue. Will add fans next summer and maybe a mini AC for the coop.
Technology in my coop!
I had the WiFi door installed in my new chicken coop. After using the door for a short time, which works great, I decided I wanted the whole automation package. The lights and motion detector work great. I haven’t yet used the heat control feature, and probably won’t use the fan control. When cold weather arrives, I will have two infrared heaters hooked up to it. I purchased the door through Amazon, but wish I would have purchased directly through Coop Tender, as they have several options for setting up the door. The reason I purchased this door over the other brands was because of the automation available, and the quality of the door itself. This door is very solid, and operates with a worm drive, not a string and pulley. Very sturdy design. My only minor issue with all of the products is the two week shipping time. This would be an issue if a replacement part was needed. Overall, very happy with the Accesory module, and the door itself.
Extra peace of mind!
The motion detector is a great product. The small flashing red lights on it probably won’t scare away a predator, but getting a text message alerting me to a possible predator really eases my mind. My only issue with the product is that I can’t get the security light to turn on when the motion detector is activated. I have everything installed correctly, and installation was fairly easy. It’s not that big of an issue as my security light is motion activated. Provides peace of mind! I wish you still offered the coop camera, though.

For the security light function, be sure to enable Security Light under the Predator Motion settings in the Web App. Although domestic animals and pets are not likely to be deterred by the red flashing lights, nighttime predators feel unsafe when confronted with red flashing lights, especially if they mimic two eyes of a predator. Our Predator Motion Detector only activates red flashing lights if an infrared heat source such as a predator triggers the alarm. This can be much more effective at deterring the potential predator than lights that are continuously flashing red.
