Coop light management Hens need 14 to 15 hours of light for optimal egg production. This SmartApp allows you to set a target amount of light for your hens and will supplement their light in the morning. For example, lets say you want your hens to have 14 hours of light each day but there is only 10 hours of daylight during the winter. This SmartApp will turn on the coop’s light 4 hours before sunrise to supplement for the short winter days.”
Admin Set Door Current: Allows you to set your door’s normal close currently to a known value. Please contact CoopBoss support before using this SmartApp.
Admin Set Max Current Never Exceed: This SmartApp allows you to set a new Max Current Never Exceed (MCNE) for your CoopBoss. The MCNE is used as a safety setting during a high current close (forced close) or an open. This setting should be set to match the max current of the 12v power supply connected to your CoopBoss. Typical settings are 3000mA or 4000mA.
