Introducing Omlet's first ever Automatic Chicken Coop Door - the safest and most convenient way to let your chickens in and out of their coop has arrived! Designed to work with any wooden chicken coop, it can also be attached directly to the Eglu Cube Mk1 and Mk2. Omlet's automatic chicken coop door opener is battery powered and combines both a timer and a light sensor, giving you the ultimate options for flexibility and control. The unique integrated frame and door design comes with everything you need to attach it to your chicken house or run and has been tested to work down to -20degC. Like a personal chicken coop concierge, the Autodoor will always make sure your chicken’s coop is securely closed at night even when you’re running late.

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.

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.

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.

Four AA batteries are all that is required to power the Omlet Autodoor, negating the 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 a minimum of 6 months.

Brilliant Product that makes life a lot easier - John, Gwynedd,

First of all I should say how impressed I am with the auto door. It's just awesome! I'm not a natural when it comes to engineering and assembly but it only took me an hour to install the auto door on my own. Well, to be honest, with a little assistance from the chickens who all decided to see what I was up to. Maybe using the treats bowl to hold the screws and bits wasn't the cleverest idea I've had! The control system is easy to set up but I'd suggest owners check the mechanism has functioned as expected the first time. On the first evening one of our hens was locked out and looking very sorry for herself. I changed the light level at which the closing system activates from 5% to 3%, which is perfect for our situation. These settings will vary depending on where the sensor is situated, shade etc. Battery power usage is very low, I expect we'll get at least a year from a set of Duracell rechargeables based on my measurements. The door opener makes life a lot easier. No more getting up super early to let the girls out in summer (I am not a morning person) for a start. If we're out and don't get back for bedtime, it's not a panic. The girls will be safe and sound behind the door. Talking of safe and sound, a friend of ours had an automatic door on his coop that opened vertically. All went well until the local fox managed to open the door by lifting it. The Omlet sideways opening door is totally secure from Mr Fox, just like the manual door. As with the rest of the Omlet range, it's a well thought out product that just does the job properly without any fuss.

Eggsellent product (sorry couldn’t resist) - Alex,

We bought ours at the same time as upgrading to a new eglu cube hen hut and it’s been running a few months now. On our old wooden hen hut we’ve had a few other auto pophole openers, this Omlet one, is quite frankly in the premier league of pophole openers. It’s reliable, smooth, quiet, and easily fitted and operated. It has just one small weakness you can’t operate it on a combination of light and time. However, we give it a really big thumbs up, despite the cost it really is worth buying.

Automatic door = freedom and flexibility - Alisons,

LOVE the automatic coop door! Super easy to install. Not too bad to program (mine was pre-production, so I think the instructions may have got better defined). Well-built. Secure. And, most importantly, it's added a whole new level of freedom and flexibility to our lives... no more do we need to worry about being home on time to get the girls in for the night before the nocturnal critters come out to play! And going away overnight no longer requires a pet sitter or neighbour's help. Love it!

We love the reliability of the door! - Ruth,

We really like the auto door. Previously, we had a different light sensitive auto door but it was not integrated into the door and so was more likely to fail.We use the light sensitive setting to ensure that it opens as soon as our girls are ready to get up for the day and closes shortly after they take themselves off to bed at night. The battery indicator on the control panel is really handy too!

I absolutely 100% love it! It is literally a life changer for us hen mums! - Hayley,

I installed it onto the Cube as I wanted them to be able to get up when they wanted and go back to sleep without the risk of Mr Fox getting to them. It was really easy to install and took about 20 minutes. The instructions are very user friendly. I love the freedom it gives me, I opted to use the timer setting for my chickens. It has completely changed my lifestyle. I even went through last winter leaving work for half a hour so I could go and lock the girls up safe and sound before dark. I suppose its not only changed my lifestyle but also my girls. I don't think there are many people that keep chickens purely for the eggs. We all want to give the best life for our chickens, especially as mine have been rescued from a horrible life in a battery farm. So for the girls to have consistency, waking up at the same time every day, having as long as possible to roam around as they please, and then put themselves to bed knowing that they are going to be safe. Its perfect for us.
