new controler McMurray's own Coop Controller will open the door in the morning and close the door at night. No programming required. Our controller senses the sunrise and sunset to control the door position. The controller includes a built in temperature sensor that will only open the door if the outside temperature is above 20 degrees F. This protects the chickens on cold winter mornings.

Our sliding door (12" x 12") is roost proof, a swinging door invites chickens to roost on the door.

New Controller Design! An integrated light in the controller makes installation simpler and quicker! The light insures that the chickens have 16 hours of light per day for increased egg production.

Along with the new design is a different plug-in for the sensor. If ordering a new control box or new sensor please communicate your sensor plug-in type.

  • Shuts door at sunset. Protects against predators and weather.
  • Opens door at sunrise if the temperature is above 20 degrees F
  • Supplemental light built into the controller
  • Complete door controller kit. Includes door, door frame and installation instructions. Plus watch our installation video.
  • Choose the length of cable you need to go from the inside mounting point to the outside sensor. Coop Door Controller comes with two lengths - a 6 foot length which is adequate for most installations, and a 12 foot length for installations where the sunlight sensor will be further away from the coop door.

Check out our videos below. The first is an introduction and the second shows an installation.

The installation video is slightly dated.  It gives the general steps involved in the coop controller installation. Please refer to the downloaded manual for the current instructions.

Additional Information:
The box is 7 1/4" W x 4 3/4"H x 2 1/2"Deep
Rails are about 32" long.

Questions & Answers
This is our first winter with the coop controller. The temperature feature has worked great until now, keeping the door closed until the day warms up to 20. The last three days, though, the door has opened at a colder temperature each day (although still will after sunrise). Today it opened at 11 degrees. How can I correct this? All components are in the shade so that is not the issue.
Our temperature probe is not that accurate I am sure it could vary by 10 degrees. Chickens are smart enough not to go out if it is too cold. Let us know if we can be of any further assistance
Can the out door temperature of 20 degrees on the door controller be adjusted up or down?
No, but you can bypass the cold weather sensor. If you want the door to open when temp is less than 20, that can be adjusted.
The coop Controller 5mcc, can this be operated on a timer rather than the light sensor? Can it be mounted on the outside, otherwise, how do you keep bedding and droppings from piling up below the door and preventing it from closing?
The controller will not function properly without the light sensor. It will default to night mode and keep the door closed. The unit should be mounted on the inside of your coop for protection from outdoor elements. The door will be hanging about 3 1/2 inches from the floor. If bedding starts piling up under the door, just sweep it away.
