The Autodoor is Very Secure The metal gearing holds the door in position when closed for maximum security

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.

Benefits of the Omlet Automatic Chicken Coop Door:

  • Easy to install, no maintenance required
  • Operated by light sensor or timer
  • Powered by battery
  • Works with all wooden chicken coops
  • Improves coop security and insulation
  • Compatible with the Eglu Cube
  • Reliable in all weather conditions
  • Built-in safety sensors
  • Can be used with any chicken run or mesh

Omlet's Automatic Chicken Coop Door can be set to close at dusk and open at dawn. This setting will naturally follow the seasons, ensuring that your hens are safely tucked up when it gets dark and, as the days get longer, the Autodoor will make sure your hens can get out of bed, even when you're enjoying a lazy weekend lie-in.

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.

The time setting allows you to set an exact time for the door to open and close The time setting allows you to set an exact time for the door to open and close

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.

Attaches Directly To The Eglu Cube

The Autodoor is designed to fit directly to the Eglu Cube chicken coops. If you have an Eglu Cube Mk2 it will already have fixing points built into the front face and installation will only take a few minutes, while for Eglu Cube Mk1 customers a fixings pack is available to fit the automatic chicken door securely to your coop. In both cases you will not need to remove any parts or modify your Eglu Cube as the automatic door fits seamlessly into the design of your coop and your original Eglu door can continue to be operated with the Autodoor in place. A separate mounting bracket is required if you would like to attach the control panel to the main housing of the Eglu Cube.

You can attach the automatic door to the Omlet Walk-in-Run as well as the run for the Eglu Go, Eglu Go Up and Eglu Cube chicken coops. You can also fit the Autodoor to traditional mesh style runs so if you have a homemade coop and chicken run the automatic door will make a great addition to your setup. Step-by-step instructions are provided on how to fit your automatic chicken door to all different types of mesh.

The design allows the automatic chicken door to be fitted either way up so that the door opens to the left or to the right, depending on which option best matches the configuration of your wooden coop.

The Autodoor can be powered by 4 AA batteries The automatic door can be powered by 4 AA batteries

Four AA batteries are all that is required to power the Omlet Autodoor, there is no 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 6 months. Please note that batteries are not supplied with the automatic chicken coop door.

The intelligent safety sensors prevent the door from closing if there is an obstruction The intelligent safety sensors prevent the door from closing if there is an obstruction

The Omlet Autodoor Chicken Coop Door has unique built in safety sensors that work in the same ways as lift doors. The sensors help detect if any chickens are in the way of the door when it is gently closing. So, if you have a sleepy chicken resting in the doorway then one or both sensors will help detect it and and the door will open again to allow the chicken to move. The door will then automatically try to close again until there are no feathery obstructions in the way and your chickens are all safe inside the coop.

The Autodoor can be powered by 4 AA batteries The Coop Light comes on before the Autodoor closes to let your hens know it's time for bed!

The Coop Light is a great addition to your chicken coop as it helps to encourage chickens to go back into their coop or run when it gets dark. Powered by the control panel of the Autodoor, the light will automatically come on around 5 minutes before the door closes. This works on both the Time and Light setting on your Autodoor and you can also manually switch the Coop Light on at any time. This is particularly useful if you get home after dark and need to check that your hens are safely roosting.

The Coop Light can be attached to the inside of your Eglu Cube (Mk1 or Mk2) or any wooden chicken coop and can also be attached to any kind of chicken run.

Please note that the Automatic Chicken Coop Door will need to be powered by battery if you want to add a Coop Light.

Love it - Cindy, Tennessee,

It has helped us leave our property (as we have not yet built our home) before the chickens are ready to call it a day and allow them to get out in the morning before we get there.

Works Fantastic - Sherry,

Just installed 2 weeks ago and I have to say my ladies love it. They can't wait for it to open every morning. My husband and I are so happy I no longer have to go out in the dark to close the door. I didn't want a door with a string pulley system. Very happy with this product.

Very reliable and makes being a chicken mom so easy! - Becky,

What a treat to know the chickens will be given access to their pen, or secured in their coop, even if I'm not available to check on them each morning and evening. I was particularly grateful the past few mornings when a bit under the weather, as well as when weather itself is a factor. We have the pen covered so even during an intense rain, they still like to venture out! Do note that there is a 20 minute delay after the unit hits it's recorded light measures to avoid a mishap should a car light or cloud cover temporarily affect the reading. I didn't read far enough into the directions at first, so was confused as to why the door wasn't opening even though the light reading had been reached. Great product, highly recommended! My engineer hubby was impressed with the construction!
