I upgraded my coop and auto door just over a year ago and I'm so pleased with this automtic door; it's so easy to operate I can change the settings in just a few clicks. The chickens get themselves up in the summer so I don't have to worry about getting up too early on a weekend - perfect.
Although I have chickens I bought this for my cats to use. They are only allowed to go out during the daytime ( they can get back in anytime through a microchip cat flap but not out ) I bought the auto door because they can SEE when it is open , with proprietary timer controlled cat flaps they cannot, neither can they tell the time ???? Omlet should advertise the Autodoor in their cat section too. Superb product . I will recommend it to all my cat loving friends
Excellent product and easy to use. I set the time manually otherwise my ladies go and lay in odd places and it is quick and easy to change the time to accommodate the shortening evenings. Only giving 4 stars because the paper instructions were either out of date or belonged to another model and it was hugely frustrating in parts trying to follow them. When I went indoors to google I found the online ones which were the right ones so check first that the paper ones match the online ones before you start.
Best purchase ever . No more early get ups to open coop - I truly hate mornings :-). The door is very easy to install and set up and my ladies got used to it very quickly .
I've had the automatic door fitted for a month now and it's brilliant! My ladies didn't like the noise of the door opening /closing at first (as it's attached to my walk in run) and a couple of the ladies didn't want to go through it. But after a couple of days, they were fine and now they all queue up waiting for the door to open up in the morning. It's brilliant especially at the weekend when i can have a lie in. The only thing i would like on the control panel is an over ride switch where if the weather is bad and i want to keep my ladies in the run for the day, it would be good to cancel the timings of opening the door that day without having to take batteries out. I would certainly recommend this excellent quality product!
First time I’ve ever bothered with a review, but this is one of my best buys ever. My 4 cream legbar have got used to the door so quickly and they are really spoilt hens who I lifted in to they’re eglu every night since young chicks. Had it on set time till today ,now it’s on light sensor ,which is perfect for this time of year. Thank you Eglu
Have a lie in every morning and avoid that evening walk in the dark. Very well designed and made. A brilliantly simple and very effective device. It was easy to install and worked straight out of the box. Trust the factory settings - there’s no need to tinker! This device offers total peace of mind, knowing that the chickens are safely in their coop or out in the field. The door is even sheep proof - just make sure that the cable is secured. Unfortunately Mr Fox will be disappointed.
I have just purchased the cube, and also the automatic door.
I just love it and it is so easy to set up
Much easier than the chicken guard timer that took ages to get right,
It doesn’t really matter what colour you choose as you don’t see it as it’s on inside of our new cube. Well impressed
excellent product. fits perfectly, My chickens have a cosy place hen the wind and rain is hitting the coop sideways on. Very pleased with it.
Amazing product has made my life easier knowing they are safely locked up at night and let out in the morning. Easy to fit a fantastic product!
