Computerized Chicken Coop
The Computerized Chicken Coop
I’ve retired from over 50 years of computers, video and telecommunications.
The family has moved to the side of Tiger Mountain
There is now time to play a bit and enjoy a homesteading life.
However after all these years one can’t just toss aside the knowledge of technology.
In the spirit of our family motto one must
Keep on Learning and Keep on Evolving.
The pages I will add, will describe the design of our computerized coop.
I will include a link to drawings of the coop. If asked, I can write a
tutorial on fabricating the physical coop.
I will describe the different components that control
and monitor our chickens and their living environment.
Code snippets will be included and eventually the data tables and
their use will be described.
The manual control of the computerized coop is done via a web interface.
There are a number of programs that are run automatically by the coop’s
computer and the master computer.
If wished CoopControl pages can be added to show more instructions and ideas.
The various sensor options will be explored.
A discussion of LED lighting will be written.
We can discuss the least expensive options for predator control.
These pages are meant to be a communications point to talk about what one
can gain by implementing
