The Autodoor is Very Secure The metal gearing holds the door in position when closed for maximum security

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 or mains
  • 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.

The time setting allows you to set an exact time for the door to open and close The time setting allows you to set an exact time for the door to open and close

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.

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 intelligent safety sensors prevent the door from closing if there is an obstruction The intelligent safety sensors prevent the door from closing if there is an obstruction

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.

The Autodoor can be powered by 4 AA batteries The Coop Light comes on before the Autodoor closes to let your hens know it's time for bed!

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 amazing - Ken, New York,

I bought this door so I wouldn't have to worry about being home to lock up my coop. This thing works flawlessly. Directions were a little lack luster but you got the drift.

Worth the wait! - Annie,

Easy to install onto our wooden designer coop! Works like a charm - and the girls have figured out that they need to be inside before it closes or they are SOL! Some auto openers have a feature that they reopen 20 minutes later to allow any strays a chance to get in for the night. NOT this one - so be aware. also - do NOT buy the bracket unless you have the plastic omlet coop. its useless otherwise. Not a complaint - just FYI's - because with the door you will enjoy peaceful sleep and sweet dreams!

This product does exactly what I wanted it to - Andrew,

I'd been planning on attempting to make an automatic coop door for a long time and after being woken very early several times in the summer I decided I needed to get some form of automatic opener. This product does it perfectly. I attached it to a traditional wooden coop without any issues and have it set to a timer that I alter every week or two as the days get shorter. My coop isn't in a location that I could rely on the door opening and shutting as the sun comes up or sets. Great product. And Omlet managed to get it to me before we went away for a few days, thus saving difficult organisation of someone to let the chickens out. Great service.
