Automating a chicken coop with sensors and actors, using an Arduino MKR1000 and the Blynk internet dashboard.
Project in progress by BMic
My broken chicken coop door opener now has manual control and LED indicators so I can see from the house if the chickens are safe at night.

UI was built with https://www.blynk.cc/
You need to install first an app on your smartphone.
Once done, you can drag and drop widgets into your project to make the UI. No coding is needed.
With spring season in it's full glory, I have my hands full in the garden. I will make additional improvements in the coming weeks and post the results in the project overview.
Motor was purchased from Banggood and winch from the local DIY store.
