Make your Hentronix unit the most customisable and technologically advanced coop door in the world!
Available as an upgrade for existing Hentronix units, or pre-installed on a new Hentronix unit.
✅ Open and close your coop manually from afar (up to 100ft away)
✅ No need for WiFi or internet connection in your garden/field. Works using Bluetooth. This means if you’re near your coop, whether that’s in your garden, or whether the coop is in the middle of a forest, you can connect to it without an internet connection! Ideal for the most remote locations possible, and no possibility of Wi-Fi dropping out and losing control of your coop.
✅ Cycle the door open/closed without having to scrable around near the coop, saving you time and saving you from having to bend down in confined areas! This is a really cool feature when showing off your coop and your chickens to friends and family!
✅ Totally customisable opening & closing options. Ask your door to open at a specific clock time in the morning, or ask it to open according to light levels outside. Tell it to open at 6:55am and it will do that exactly. Same options for night closing! Exact time, or light level-based closing.
✅ Set opening/closing strengths. Want your coop door to close a little firmer? Want to back the door strength off a little? No problem!
✅ Battery/power level checker. Gives you incredibly accurate live and past voltage readings.
✅ Remembers the settings you have chosen, and carries out its tasks even if your phone is switched off!
✅ Amazing new 'Additional Lighting' functionalities! Our 'Additional Lighting' units provides light inside the coop when days get short in the winter, helping to prolong egg laying. You can now set the brightness of in-coop lighting (save energy, and adapt the strength of light to the size of your coop), and set a precise time for the light to come on in the morning! Lighting goes off when the coop door opens
✅ Even better cold climate performance for all Hentronix units
✅ No need to set the time on your Hentronix unit when the clocks change (your phone tells your unit the time completely automatically, unlike all other competing units)! Just visit your unit with your chosen device the morning/day after the clock change and the Hentronix unit will do the rest.
✅ No cheap LCD screen with annoying ‘scrolling’ options (and fiddly push buttons - not ideal when trying to operate in the cold!). This makes the unit more watertight, helping to safeguard your chickens and also your investment in them! Instead, we make use of the amazing high resolution screen already in your iPhone/iPad!
✅ Available as an upgrade for all pre-existing Hentronix customers with non-Bluetooth enabled Hentronix units, or ready-installed on a new Hentronix unit if ordering a Hentronix mechanism at the same time.
✅ Perfect for solar-powered units or mains-powered units!
✅ Extremely audible low battery alarm just for good measure, unlike all competitor’s units. We can hear this from about 150ft away, even with a lot of background traffic noise!
✅ Possible to open and close the door without the app, so if your neighbour is looking after your chickens and doesn’t have an iPhone/iPad, they can control the door manually
We recommend that if you are upgrading your Hentronix unit, and if you haven’t got one of our new thin and flexible solar panels, you upgrade your solar panel at the same time as ordering the app. This will help ensure your battery remains optimally charged. You can upgrade your solar panel by clicking here
There will be an app released for Android which will work with this very same circuit board upgrade. This app is still under development, and we cannot guarantee when it will be released, but please contact us to express an interest if you would only be able to buy this product when an Android app is released! We would love to hear from you.
