Auto Door - Ken,

The auto door opener seems to be working well. It was a bit of a project to get the timer programmed but once I did it seems to work well.

Very effective - Scraps,

I fitted the door onto my wooden coop. I had to make a few adjustments to the coop but it was easy enough to fit and works well. It seems like quite a big door to me but perhaps that's inevitable with the amount of mechanism required to open and close the door. Also I have pekin bantams so maybe the big size would be needed for other breeds. It's the only sideways opening automatic door I could find on the market in the UK. All the others are pulled open from above, which wouldn't have worked with my coop. Having it means I don't have to get up early when the days are long so it's one less stress to deal with. Also means it'll be easier to leave the chooks in someone else's care if we go away.

Coop auto door - Terry,

It was a little tricky to fit (operator error on my part). The support was great. All in all a worthwhile buy.

Great product, dispatch and communication very sloq - Tyson,

I love the chicken auto door. The kit was so easy to retro fit to my timber chicken tractor. The only draw back is the shipping communication and time frame. It took quite a while and on the confirmation page the dates continually changed without explanation, there was no notification that the item had been shipped. Just a pleasant surprise on the door step one day

Omlet Says: Hi Tyson, thanks for your review. I'm very sorry about this! Given the current circumstances we found ourselves trying to communicate delays with our customers based off estimated dispatch dates we were receiving from our suppliers, this is why the dates were changing. We are more than aware how frustrating this can be for our customers so it's something we've worked really hard at trying to improve where possible!

Automated Freedom - Dave,

Chicks complain like mad when they want to get out and Lazy Dave has lowered the grid preventing access to the run (presumably to allow for some maintenance without Truble jumping up and No5 pecking at his toes and Sterling getting under his feet) and forgotten to open it - Just like the Pre Omlet days when Lazy Dave had to get up to allow them out ! Lazy Dave thinks the door is great however could be improved by connecting to the Cloud such that confirmation that the door is Open, Closed or Blockled. Fortunately Lazy Dave has a solution for this and would love to hear from Omlet if they are interested.

Automatic door - Donyell,

Shipping fairly normal considering Covid. I was able to put the door together without and issues. The chickens don’t seem to mind it but it is a little small to use for ducks. My ducks are not a fan of it so I will have to figure out what I can do to make it easier for them. I have only used it for couple days so far

I luv this product! - William,

I was sceptical at first to trust my automatic door. I continued my trips each evening to insure door closed. This is a very reliable product. It is easy to install and program. It performs perfectly even in cold weather. The only thing I wish it had is a connection for solar battery charger

Great auto door, go for it! - Joe,

Love this auto chicken door by Omlet. My chickens are well trained on it and it saves me hassle daily. Keeps my chickens protected. No more having to run out at sundown to make sure all the chickens are in and the door is closed. Operating on a light sensor is fantastic, no need to adjust open and close time as seasons change (although you can choose to do it that way if you wish). Seems GREAT on battery life too. Battery has only dropped by 10% after three months now. I'm using rechargeable alkaline. 4 stars instead of 5 because of an installation oversight: if you test the door before installing it (like to make sure it's working out of the box), the door will likely calibrate incorrectly and not function as expected once you mount it. If you do this, make sure you recalibrate after installing it, which REQUIRES a sequence of unhooking the control module and then resetting the device. If you reset the device while the control module is still hooked up to the door, it will not perform a recalibration. Took me a lot of trial and error to realize this as to why my door would just loop open/close after I installed it. After solving this installation hiccup, the door has been rock solid ever since. Highly recommend!

An excellent purchase. - Nicola,

Really pleased with this. It has particularly helped me stop worrying if i am a little late home and my girls are then safely tucked away. I gave 4 not 5 stars as I am not confident about the light sensor as yet and have resorted to using the timer only and changing it every couple of days as the nights draw in. It is however worth every penny!
