3D model description

This is Arduino automatic chicken coop door project.
It works by opening and closing the chicken coop at a scheduled time to keep the chickens safe at night.

Parts I used:

1x Arduino Nano

1x 12v 5A power supply (110mm x 80mm x 35mm).5A is probably to much so 2A power supply should work as well (My actuator uses max 1.5A).

1x Real-Time Clock Module (DS3231)

2x Relay module.I used those

1x 12V Actuator (I used this one but I am pretty sure that actuators from aliexpress will work as well.

1x 12v to 5v Buck Converter MP1584

Arduino sketch


int Relay = 4;
int Relay2 = 5;

DS3231 rtc(A4, A5);
Time t;

const int OnHour = 13;
const int OnMin = 40;

const int OffHour = 13;
const int OffMin = 41;

const int OnHour2 = 13;
const int OnMin2 = 42;

const int OffHour2 = 13;
const int OffMin2 = 43;

void setup() {
pinMode(Relay, OUTPUT);
digitalWrite(Relay, HIGH);
pinMode(Relay2, OUTPUT);
digitalWrite(Relay2, HIGH);


void loop() {
t = rtc.getTime();
Serial.print(" hour(s), ");//Optional
Serial.print(" minute(s)");//Optional
Serial.println(" ");//Optional
delay (1000);

if(t.hour == OnHour && t.min == OnMin){
Serial.println("LIGHT ON");//Optional

else if(t.hour == OffHour && t.min == OffMin){
  Serial.println("LIGHT OFF");//Optional

if(t.hour == OnHour2 && t.min == OnMin2){
Serial.println("LIGHT ON2");//Optional

else if(t.hour == OffHour2 && t.min == OffMin2){
  Serial.println("LIGHT OFF2");//Optional
