Door open/close motor

So i am looking for a way to open/close my chicken coop door when I can’t dig out a 50ft path of snow. I’ve added a camera which i can put in my coop to check there aren’t any in the doorway, and i am now looking to add some kind of motor to do this. I am thinking an Arduino module is the best to move a small door. Can anyone confirm if this will, or will not work, and the problems I may have in delivering this functionality? If there is a better way to do this, I would love to hear it, also!
