Just to let you know, Omlet is open! Please see here for more information.

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.

Excellent -

Very happy with this purchase. Wish I had made the investment years ago. Only quibble is that I found the instructions for setting the control panel baffling (my husband installed the door). I tried the You Tube video and found that just as useless! It may be me as I am not very technically minded. I decided in the end to leave it on the default light setting which has worked very well so there isn't really any need to change the settings.

Revolutionary piece of kit! -

Our automatic door was installed in March 2019 and we haven't had to change the batteries yet. We totally love this - no more winters of getting up in the dark to plod down before we go to work to open the Eglu and let the cold in before it's light - and no evenings of trying to get them to bed early because we want to go out!

Easy, peasy -

It really makes life easy, peasy. I don't have to worry if the hens are ‘banged up’, no second guessing - did I or didn’t I lock them in. They happily go into the roosting box at night and the door is then subsequently locked. In the morning they escape from the roost into the attached enclosed walk-in run. When I’m ready I can then let them out into the larger run. No mad panics. Easy, peasy!!!

Fantastic -

Fantastic addition to my coops, no longer need to worry about late night dashes to close them all up and I love that the hens are out nice and early in the morning too. The hens train very quickly, getting used to it in no time.

Excellent kit -

I fitted the auto chicken door to my Sussex wooden chicken house. It was necessary to secure the door with large screws rather than the supplied bolts which were not long enough. I also reduced the size of the pop hole to that specified in the Omlet instructions. The fitting instructions were easy to follow and programming the unit was simple . As my hens are early to bed and early to rise I have changed the light settings to 15/15 from the default values. I have been impressed with the auto door which has worked without problem.
