Introduction: Chicken Door (arduino)
Im going to show you how to build a very simple arduino solar powered chicken door.
I focus in simplicity and low power consumption.
You only need:
-arduino nano- for cheap and low energy consumption
- Stepper motor
- solar power bank
And a few other things that you can find in your house
Step 1: A Setup From the Inside
Step 2: Door and Solar Powerbank
3mm wood blank with aluminium finish
10000 mah solar powebank for 120 days without sun, lifetime with sun.
Step 3: Conections and Low Amperage Consumption
You can find the sketch and libraries in the video.
As you see, oonly consumes 3.5mA with the sleep mode
