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

-LDR resistance

- 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
