Sideways Mounting the ADOR1 Automatic Chicken Door


We have received some requests for whether ADOR1 can be mounted so the door slides horizontally.

Yes, it works sideways!

If your coop has a short wall, mounting sideways may be a solution for you. But don't forget we have a shorter door just for that purpose of installing in a short coop.  The ADOR1-mini is only 20.5" tall when open -- check out the ADOR1-mini here.

WARNING: Just make certain that it is not where rain, or water can fall on it.  If on the side, the lid cannot provide the roof-function to keep the electronics from getting wet.

Also you will need to block the battery from falling against the motor or board... use tape or Velcro.
