The Advanced Control Box with Sun Mode™ automatically adjusts opening and closing times to match your local sunrise/sunset times. After a one-time setup, you simply set the number of minutes before/after sunrise or sunset that you want your coop door to open and close, and Sun Mode updates open and close times daily, FOREVER!  It can be powered with 4 AA Batteries (not included), electric with power chord (included) or with our Solar Kit (sold separately).
