Automatic Chicken Coop Door - About Us
Coop Tender® is a division of ITBS, Inc. (http://www.itbsinc.com), which provides technology solutions since 1998.
The company owner runs a homestead with various livestock, including chickens with multiple chicken coops - stationary and tractor (mobile). He felt that it should be feasible to have a device which would automatically open and close the chicken coop door.
After reviewing numerous automatic chicken coop door products, it became apparent that a new automatic chicken coop door needed to be created.
The Vision: A chicken coop door which can run from solar power, open/close dawn-dusk, open/close based on schedule and Internet connected so that it could be monitored and controlled from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection.
The Result: Coop Tender® Automatic Chicken Door – Wi-Fi Enabled.
Our team went through numerous designs, prototypes and sleepless nights to develop our chicken coop door.
"This is one of the most exciting projects that I have ever work on! There were many more elements to an automatic chicken coop door than one might consider on the surface. The fusion of physics, micro-controller computer electronic circuits and software driven systems is unlike any project that I have worked on in the past."- JD
There certainly were challenges. The biggest challenge was packing all of the desired functionality into the limited amount of firmware memory on the micro controller chip. Overcoming this challenge required a number of refactoring cycles to make the firmware code as efficient and compact as possible. We worked at the lowest level of micro-controller technology to deliver a product which is unparalleled in the marketplace. We felt that the features we were striving for were essential to any automatic chicken coop door.
Our automatic chicken door Wi-Fi module has revolutionized the way you interact with your livestock management devices. You can directly interact with your automatic coop door from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection.
Our goal is to provide products and services which allow you to take more time to enjoy Life, Nature, Plants and Animals, while ensuring the safety and comfort of your livestock.
