Excellent idea - Marie, Derby,

The door is great and means that I don’t have to worry about closing the door at night or letting the ladies out in the morning however I was very disappointed that the fixing bracket has to be purchased separately, I feel that the unit is an expensive purchase and that all fixings should be included with the purchase of the auto door


Great Door - Georgina, West Sussex,

Love this auto door. Very easy to install. I put it on the mk1 cube to start with then moved it to the run. Has made my life much easier! I would highly recommend this automatic door.


It works! - Susannah,

I've got a wooden chicken coop and wanted to add an automatic door opener to it. Fitting didn't take a long as I thought and I'm really happy with it. I had to remove the old wooden door off the front of the coop first and then screwed omlet door on. The chickens have got used to it and it works really well. Only issue was the slight delay on the delivery but it arrived before Christmas which was good. Thank you.


Revolutionised Chicken Keeping! - ,

Ok, the road to receiving this product was far from smooth (surprised Elodie didn’t self-combust because of all the problematic issues along the way!) but, oh my goodness, it was worth the extremely long wait! We’re far from lazy, but the advantages gained through not having to be around to let the chickens out or lock them away safely cannot be underestimated: how did we survive without this? Absolutely wonderful!


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!
