The unique integrated frame and door design can be easily attached to your chicken house or run and has been tested to work down to -10degC.

The Ultimate Automatic Chicken Door
The Omlet Automatic Chicken Coop Door has a powerful electric motor and metal gear that is directly mounted on the door frame for maximum security. Unlike other automatic chicken coop door openers that work on a string and pulley system, the Omlet Autodoor cannot be simply lifted up when shut. This means that predators will not be able to move the door when it is closed, no matter how hard they try. Your chickens can sleep soundly knowing they have the most secure automatic door in the world.
Benefits of the Omlet Automatic Chicken Coop Door:
- Easy to install, no maintenance required
- Operated by light sensor or timer
- Powered by battery
- Works with all wooden chicken coops
- Improves coop security and insulation
- Compatible with the Eglu Cube
- Reliable in all weather conditions
- Built-in safety sensors
- Can be used with any chicken run or mesh
Omlet's Automatic Chicken Coop Door can be set to close at dusk and open at dawn. This setting will naturally follow the seasons, ensuring that your hens are safely tucked up when it gets dark and, as the days get longer, the Autodoor will make sure your hens can get out of bed, even when you're enjoying a lazy weekend lie-in.
The light setting uses a sophisticated light sensor to automatically open and close the door at a specific and adjustable light level selected by you. An optional time delay can be added so that the door operates up to an hour after dawn or dusk to suit your flock’s routine. The light sensor has built-in intelligence to recognise and ignore temporary illumination from a security light or torch and will only open after a consistent period of light above the threshold set by you. This ensures that your chickens stay safe and protected at all times and, unlike other less advanced automatic doors, you won’t have any unwanted openings in the middle of the night.
Time and Manual Settings
Another way to operate the Omlet automatic chicken door is by using the time setting. This allows you to set an exact time for the door to open in the morning and close in the evening. The advantage of this setting is that you have complete control over your chicken’s environment and you can set the Autodoor to meet your specific daily requirements. The control panel also has a manual function which allows you to open and close the door independently of the time or light settings and, for total peace of mind, there is a built-in failsafe system for opening the door completely by hand.
Attaches Directly To The Eglu Cube
The Autodoor is designed to fit directly to the Eglu Cube chicken coops. If you have an Eglu Cube Mk2 it will already have fixing points built into the front face and installation will only take a few minutes, while for Eglu Cube Mk1 customers a fixings pack is available to fit the automatic chicken door securely to your coop. In both cases you will not need to remove any parts or modify your Eglu Cube as the automatic door fits seamlessly into the design of your coop and your original Eglu door can continue to be operated with the Autodoor in place. A separate mounting bracket is required if you would like to attach the control panel to the main housing of the Eglu Cube.
Install on Any Chicken Run
The versatility of the unique frame and door design allows you to fit the Omlet automatic chicken door to any kind of chicken run, where you can choose to have the door opening to the left or to the right depending on which way round you decide to fit the frame. You can attach the automatic door to the Omlet Walk-in-Run as well as the run for the Eglu Go, Eglu Go Up and Eglu Cube chicken coops. You can also fit the Autodoor to traditional mesh style runs so if you have a homemade coop and chicken run the automatic door will make a great addition to your setup. Step-by-step instructions are provided on how to fit your automatic chicken door to all different types of mesh.
The Autodoor can be fitted to all types of chicken run, including Eglu Go and Eglu Go Up chicken runs.
The Autodoor is fully compatible with the Omlet Walk In Run and can be fitted so the door opens to the left or to the right.
The door can also be fitted to traditional style chicken mesh as shown here.
Works With All Wooden Coops
Owners of wooden chicken coops can also benefit from the Omlet automatic chicken coop door opener as it is compatible with virtually any design of wooden coop. The design allows the automatic chicken door to be fitted either way up so that the door opens to the left or to the right, depending on which option best matches the configuration of your wooden coop. Not only is the Autodoor a great practical addition to a wooden chicken coop, it is also a significant upgrade on traditional wooden doors in terms of insulation, security and durability. Clear instructions are provided on how to fit the automatic door directly to your wooden chicken coop quickly and securely.

Powered By Battery or Mains
Four AA batteries are all that is required to power the Omlet Autodoor, there is no need for a nearby power source and additional wiring. The door has been endurance tested under battery power and you can expect a set of batteries to last for 6 months. Please note that batteries are not supplied with the Automatic Chicken Coop Door and if you are using the Autodoor combined with a Coop Light you will have up to 4 months battery life.
If you would like to power your Autodoor from a mains outlet then you can purchase a 12v supply separately here.
Built-in Safety Sensors
The Omlet Autodoor Chicken Coop Door has unique built in safety sensors that work in the same ways as lift doors. The sensors help detect if any chickens are in the way of the door when it is gently closing. So, if you have a sleepy chicken resting in the doorway then one or both sensors will help detect it and and the door will open again to allow the chicken to move. The door will then automatically try to close again until there are no feathery obstructions in the way and your chickens are all safe inside the coop.
Optional Coop Light
The Coop Light is a great addition to your chicken coop as it helps to encourage chickens to go back into their coop or run when it gets dark. Powered by the control panel of the Autodoor, the light will automatically come on around 5 minutes before the door closes. This works on both the Time and Light setting on your Autodoor and you can also manually switch the Coop Light on at any time. This is particularly useful if you get home after dark and need to check that your hens are safely roosting.
The Coop Light can be attached to the inside of your Eglu Cube (Mk1 or Mk2) or any wooden chicken coop and can also be attached to any kind of chicken run.
Works in All Weather Conditions
The Omlet automatic chicken door has been engineered to work reliably and dependably through the harshest of conditions. The weather-proof casing of the Autodoor and the control panel ensures the electronics, motor and gear are safe from the elements. The door has been rigorously tested in extreme conditions down to -10 degrees Celsius / 14 degrees Fahrenheit.
The weather proof casing of the automatic door protects it from the elements so you can rely on it in any weather.

Flexible Control Panel Positioning
One of the great features of the automatic chicken coop door opener is that the LCD control panel is separate from the door itself and is connected via a durable cable. Mounting brackets are available to buy that allow you to fit the control panel to an Eglu Cube house, or you can position the control panel anywhere on your chicken run. Not only is the control panel easy to use, it is neatly enclosed in a triple weather-proof casing for durability and will look great as part of your setup. It also features the light sensor for the automatic door.
Everything You Need In One Box
The Omlet Autodoor comes with everything you need in one complete package and the unique integrated frame and door assembly means you have minimum assembly. Screws and fittings are included in the box for attaching your automatic chicken door to either an Eglu Cube Mk2 or a wooden chicken coop of any design. Simply install 4 AA batteries in the control panel and connect it to the door unit using the cable, press the on button and it’s ready to go. If you would like to position the Autodoor onto a wire mesh or you would like to mount the control panel onto the Eglu Cube house rather than the run then please choose an attachment kit.
