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.

Coop door 6month review. -

Bought this door back in January a bit sceptical about buying it at the time but bit the bullet and went ahead with the purchase and really glad I did one of the best products I have ever bought it really works well it costs a lot but you control when they come out and in brilliant well worth every penny.

I love the new coop door! -

Having bought the automatic chicken coop door we wondered why we hadn't purchased it sooner. It is brilliant. Works well quite easy to assemble to our old wooden coop(omlet cube on the wish list!).

Very useful and well made door -

We got this when we realised our chicken coop wasn’t big enough for a vertical door. It was easy to install, easy to setup and easy to configure. Only problem I had initially with the light sensor was understanding what the light levels were on the sensor in relation to how bright it is outside. I now have mine set to open at 70 and close at 20 which seems to work well at this time of year (Summer). May need changing again in the winter but we’ll see. Overall, it’s an excellent piece of kit.


Absolutely fantastic. No more having to get up early now. I the worry is gone about shutting them in at night. Worth every penny. Thanks

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.
