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 feature ensures that predators will not be able to move the door when it is closed. Your chickens can sleep soundly knowing they have one of the most secure automatic doors 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 certifies that your hens can get out of bed, even when you're enjoying a lazy weekend retreat or staycation.

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 recognize and ignore temporary illumination from a security light or flashlight and will only open after a consistent period of light above the threshold set by you. This helps to assure that your chickens stay safe and protected at all times. Also, unlike other less advanced automatic doors, it is designed to prevent any unwanted openings in the middle of the night.

Control panel for the automatic chicken coop door by Omlet 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. This application allows for total peace of mind and 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(model bought after 2016) it will already have attachments built into the front face and installation will only take a few minutes. On the other hand, for Eglu Cube Mk1 (model bought before 2016) customers a fittings 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 house in the Eglu Cube.

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 and if you are using the Autodoor combined with a Coop Light you will have up to 4 months battery life.

If you would like to power your Autodoor from a main outlet then you must purchase the Omlet-approved 12 V supply separately.

Please note that the option to power your Autodoor from mains is temporarily unavailable.

Note: you should only use the Omlet-approved power supplies with the Autodoor. We cannot offer any warranty (expressed or implied), support or advice if you connect any other form of power supply to your Autodoor.

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 elevator 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 is 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 enclosure when it gets dark. Powered by the control panel of the Autodoor, the light will automatically turn 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 Large Chicken Coop - Eglu Cube (Mk1(model bought before 2016) or Mk2(model bought after 2016)) 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

You must use the AutoDoor as specified in the instruction manual by using either AA batteries or our power adapter. A set of AA batteries will last a long time (between 6-12 months). We cannot offer any warranty (expressed or implied), support or advice if you connect any other forms of power supply to you Autodoor. There is a high risk that you may damage your Autodoor, and the product may not work as intended.
Use good quality alkaline or lithium AA batteries with your Autodoor. Please make sure you use 4 batteries that are the same brand, same type and same energy level.
No, you can only use one setting at a time. It is possible that you might want to change which setting you use throughout the year depending on your flock’s routine and the number of daylight hours.
No, the motor in the door is designed to open the door horizontally.
We would suggest changing the batteries when the control panel is showing the level as 20% or lower. We also advise you check the batteries every three months to make sure they are all in good condition.
The Autodoor cannot be fitted to any other Eglus than the Eglu Cube Mk1 and Mk2. You can however, using an attachment kit, fasten it to any Omlet run.
The power of the cool light is 1.5 watt and it is an LED light. This is equivalent to a 15 watts light bulb.
Door Frame: 19.25 in. x 16.5 in x 2. 25 in. Control Panel: 4.75 in. x 4.5 in. x 1.5 in. Cable Length: 78.74 in.
The Autodoor uses military time, with a 24h clock. So if you, for example, want to program your door to close at 6pm, you would set the control panel to 18.00.
If you watch your chickens for a few days you will see that in most cases, they will all go into the coop within half an hour of each other. Keep note of at what time this happens, so you can select the correct time or light level on the door.
The Autodoor fits straight on the Eglu Cube Chicken Coop, and on the absolute majority of wooden chicken coops or barns. If you have an older Eglu Cube (before 2016), you can fit the Autodoor by using an attachment kit. You can also fit it to mesh or chicken wire on a run.
If you have a coop light installed, this will make the battery life shorter, but you can still expect approximately 4 months of battery life if using good quality batteries.

There are two main reasons. Firstly, having a light in the coop will encourage the chickens to return to their house when it gets dark. This is especially good if you have one or two hens that tend to stay out longer than the rest.

Secondly, it’s useful to have a light in the coop if you want to check on your hens when it's dark, maybe as you come home from work or just before you go to bed. The hens won’t be bothered by you turning on the light for a minute and peeking into the coop.

The Autodoor is designed to be used by adult chickens, and it’s wise to only use manual mode if you have chicks in the flock.
Yes, there is a manual mode where the door opens and closes only when you press the button. For safety and peace of mind, there is also a built-in failsafe system for opening the door completely by hand. Check the instruction manual to find out how to do this.

Easy to program - Melonie, Shropshire,

I’ve had my door for 2weeks now and absolutely love it. Works perfectly and the coop light is a great little addition. Shipping took weeks to get it here, but it’s worth the wait.

Conspicuous Convenience - David, Shropshire,

What a fantastic simple invention to increase the joy of keeping chickens! Easy to fit in a timber shed door and I very much like the light sensor option where the door opens and closes to suit the light, whether the weather is stormy of clear. The chickens can exit and enter at a consistent time throughout the year - conspicuous convenience.

Make having chickens easy! - Stephanie, Aberdeenshire,

Perfect for our needs. - Vanessa, East Sussex,

This chicken coop door was very easy to assemble/install and we had no issues programming it to the times we wanted it to shut and open. The instruction booklet that came with it was easy to follow and this coop door hasn't had any issues so far. We have more peace of mind and comfort now knowing that our chickens get securely closed in at night and protected from predators and let out first thing in the morning. We aren't always home due to work schedules during the time we needed it to close them up and let them out and this automatic door fixed our problem. Our only complaint was that it took 6 weeks to receive this door, otherwise it has been great and we highly recommend.

Sleeping in now - Wil, Shropshire,

We set the timer for roughly sunrise and when we wake, the chickens are already pecking around outside. It's well worth it.
