Digital Battery Timer for VSD & VSB Door Opener Units


Digital Battery Timer for VSB & VSD Door Opener Units.

Add this Digital Battery Timer to the VSB/VSD Daylight Sensor Door Opener to give more regular control of the door opening times i.e. you can set this timer to open the door at 7am every morning rather than say, 4am in June (when they may be prone to predators if free-ranging).



A Digital Battery Timer for use with the VSB & VSD Auto Door Openers.

Gives more control over the opening times of the VSB unit, can work to only open the door or, to both open and close the VSB/VSD door unit. Made in Germany.

This is a very useful gadget to add to the VSB/VSD Door Opener units especially if you don't want the automatic door to open at the crack of dawn (chickens can disturb the neighbours at 4am in the summer!), or to keep them safe from the fox. You can set the timer to open the door at say, 6am or 7am, and then close as normal at dusk.

It works off two ready-installed AA Batteries, is easy to install and comes with full instructions. Inside the box will be - the Battery Timer (2 x AA batteries pre-installed), grey connecting lead for VSB/VSD unit; a very small jumper cable if control is required only by the timer. Replacement Timer Cable and Jumper Cable are available if they need to be replaced.

The Battery Timer is covered by a 3-year manufacturer's warranty (this does not cover oil contamination, battery leakage, insect damage or water damage). Please call us if your unit appears to fail as we can offer advice regarding installation and operation to often fix problems immediately. If the unit is faulty, we offer our own 'replace with new' guarantee within 30 days of purchase.  Thereafter, if we have been unable to help, you can return the unit to AXT for repair or replacement under your statutory rights (email: We cannot repair faulty timers here, only the manufacturers can effect repairs or replace as necessary.
