I've been working on a coop door opener with phone notifications to sell hopefully later this year. What's the policy on talking about this on the forums?

Found this.
https://www.survivalistboards.com/showthread.php?t=3797

Does this mean I may link back to my own website, or to the item in the For Sale section? "If a member ask a question about something, (like a water filter) and you sell it, merchants are allowed to link to the product at their store"

You'll need a merchants account; you can get one here:

Note also on the page you linked :

Members that promote their business without a merchant account will be treated as if they were posting spam .
Hope this information is helpful to you

You are very welcome!

It is "my understanding" that IF you have a merchant's account you can take care of it if asked?

IOW Merchants are not solely restricted to the for sale forum(s).

That would be correct. anyone with an approved merchant account can post in the merchants section AND they can post in other areas as long as the thread or post from another member is asking about a product they are selling AND they provide useful dialog in the thread... for example, if a merchant sees a thread/post asking about water filters, they can answer the questions being asked and post a link to their product, they can't just go through a thread and see a post about water and say 'hey I sell this (ad link)" and contribute nothing more.
