This Vertical Sliding Door Opener for Chicken Coop Pop-hole Doors has been brought bang up to date for 2019 with new features and an improved slimline layout inside.

Can be mounted outside or inside the henhouse. For internal use add the EXTERNAL LIGHT SENSOR

The VSD, like the VSB, is a battery powered Electronic Chicken Coop Door Opener and the redesign now includes more options e.g. replaceable on-board light sensor; the manual override function; slimline casing; additional pins to add mains power, timers and external sensors/indicators. Batteries are included.

The VSD can be mounted on the outside of your chicken house above the sliding pop-hole door (or can be offset with pulleys where space is an issue). We suggest the sliding door is the aluminium option (below) to ensure it remains free-moving throughout the year but, you can add the VSD to a wooden vertical door as long as it moves up and down freely. The maximum weight of the door must not exceed 3kg. The cord is very strong with a 40lb breaking strain.

Once set and batteries inserted the VSD will open the door at dawn and close it at dusk by means of a strong cord attached to the pop-hole door. An LED indicator in the lower right will show green for closed and OK, and it will show red if there is an error or battery change needed. A Battery Powered Timer can also be added to give control of opening and/or closing using timed settings.

To manually override the door closing/opening, a red magnet is supplied to touch at the base of the VSB casing and activate the motor to raise or lower the door.

For internal mounting you would place the VSD inside the coop above the pop-hole and add the remote light sensor which connects to two pins on the circuit board. This sensor remotely takes the light levels outside the henhouse to activate the unit inside.

Dimensions: 125mm x 125mm x 50mm. Batteries are included with the VSD as well as comprehensive instructions for installation making this a very simple to do. No electronic or specialist knowledge needed at all. We offer telephone back up for trouble shooting if required though.

FSF Note: the red magnet is quite small so we advise tying a coloured cord/ribbon to it in case you drop it on the ground (makes it easier to find and can also be hung near the VSD perhaps), otherwise it may get lost.

NEW - VSE Auto Door Opener with integrated timer

Ref: AXT-VSE


Price: 149.00 (Including VAT at 20%)


Quantity:  




The VSE Electronic Door Opener is a new design for 2019 from AXT with an integrated digital timer. Complete all-in-one battery operated device.

It will open and close the chicken coop pop-hole door when it gets light or dark, as do the VSB and VSD units but this unit can also be controlled by the timer. You operate the menu via a control magnet at the front of the front cover. A light sensor is built inside the device. No extra light sensor required if the unit is mounted outside the coop.

However, when installing the door opener inside the coop, please order an external light sensor (AS) to connect to the VSE and then the sensor is placed to the outside of the coop.

The NEW VSE unit has an Integrated timer with digital display and menu control easily visible. Separate morning and evening settings are possible (open until 12:00, close from 12:00 to 24:00) as well as a weekend function (Saturday and Sunday and/or Sunday, different settings are possible). Operation is from the outside of the casing by magnet, your key to the VSE.

With the VSE you can also open and close the door manually using the magnet. The magnet is held to a control panel on the base of the casing of the device, which triggers the function (close or open). The housing does not have to be opened and there are no mechanical components that could break.

* 4-year manufacturers Warranty
* Battery operation: 4 x alkaline batteries (AA, LR6) are included. Battery life approx. 2 years
* Small Red Magnet included (recommend attaching a cord to this so it does not get lost)
* Battery low indicator (red LED)
* Indicator for 'closed mode' (flashing green LED)
* External light sensor (1 m long) can be connected for mounting the device inside the coop
* Door stops if there is a chicken underneath. Continues to close when the animal is gone.
* Up to 3 kg door weight


12V power supply available as accessory (optional) - Operate device via 230V power socket, batteries can remain in device as emergency power supply (contact manufacturers axt-electronic.de)

Manual operation via the magnet:
Close the door by holding the magnet to the red part of the casing. The door stays closed until the next morning and then opens again automatically - you don't have to do anything. Or, open the door in the morning, it closes automatically that evening.

Mounting:
The mounting is very simple: First mount the aluminium door (or your own wooden door), pull it up into the open position, mount the VSE so that you can connect it to the door via the loop. Then insert the batteries and you are done.

External Light Sensor Cable for VSB Chicken House Door Opener Units.

If you want to convert an External VSB (or the new VSD) Door Opener to for internal use then this is the cable you need, or, if you just need to replace an existing cable.

The cable is exactly 1m in length and houses a photo cell in one end, also included is a black cap for covering the photo cell on the circuit board inside the unit. You simply attach the cable to two of the pins inside the VSB box and cover the internal light sensor on the circuit board. Then, fix the external light sensor (bulb) on the outside of your house and it will then close the door at dusk.

Light Sensors carry a one year warranty.

(FSF note: for purchases of sensor cable made after 2nd June 2017 the new cable will have a blue stripe around the end senosr. In this case the wires need to be connected thus: white wire to Pin 6 and brown wire to Pin 5)

Select Size


Lightweight Aluminium Door with two metal runners for use with the VSB internal or external Door Openers as well as the Chicken Guard Door openers. Three sizes available.

This metal door, being aluminium, will not rust over time and also, unlike many wooden pop-hole doors will not warp, swell or twist in the runners.

Can be fitted inside or outside your chicken house depending on space available. Consists of two aluminium, H profile, runners and one flat aluminium door (as this is aluminium you can cut the door and runners down to a custom size if required).

Select size required from drop down box above.
Small size - to fit pop-holes up to 22cm wide x 33cm high - 275g (runners are 60cm tall)
Medium size - to fit pop-holes up to 30cm wide x 40cm high - 470g (runners are 70cm tall)
Large size - to fit pop-holes up to 33cm wide x 50cm high - 648g (runners are 80cm tall)

FSF Guide: Maggie's Six and Dozen Henhouses use a Medium Door (owing to the size of the pop-hole on the Maggie's 24 we have to make a lightweight wooden door to fit - please state during ordering if for a Maggie's 24). Hobby Henhouses use a Medium Door. We have also put together complete kits of VSB and door plus any necessary timbers for our houses, see

Small Pulley for VSB Pop-hole Door Opener

Ref: VSBPUL


Price: 3.95 (Including VAT at 20%)


Quantity:  




Price is per pulley.

Small plastic pulley to aid the placement of the VSB where it cannot be placed directly above the pop-hole door. Scroll down to our booklet for more information on placement. Pulleys are 35mm in diameter.

FSF Tip: If using pulleys with your VSB unit you may require extra cord (see below) to attach to the main cord. This will make sure that you can still install the unit with the door in the open position and have the right amount of cord without a strain on the VSB motor.
