No more bedtime worries - Michelle, suffolk,

I will be honest and say I bought the product with concerns about the installation process as I have a traditional wooden hen house. However there were no major problems but I think what would be helpful if there was a note in the instructions informing customers that the 'retaining bars' should be installed before you fit the frame. My other frustration and hence only awarding a 'good' for the product was the setting instructions for the time clock - it took over 20 mins. I consider I am reasonably competent and can follow instructions but this I found challenging. In truth my husband gave up completely and he is normally very technically minded. The hens would probably give the automatic door a 'good plus,' as they woke up to the automatic door and were able to use the door again at dusk and now seem settled after several weeks of use. I would add a note of caution that the Buff Orpington hens did find the entrance a bit of a squeeze and needed a nudge from a smaller hen to find out they did fit.

I have been very pleased with the function of the door - Teresa,

However I do have two issues: 1) the door on the control needs a latch. It has blown open repeatedly today. 2) the interior frame for attaching to chicken didn’t hold up..the vertical bars fell off. I don’t believe they are critical, now that the coop is screwed in but just seems like the design could be improved.

Works like a charm - Colette,

I had a different automatic door on my old coop, so I am familiar with how they work and their advantages. The Omlet door works flawlessly, shutting around sunset after my hens have gone up to the coop, and opening for them in the morning. If you are hesitating about buying the automatic door due to the cost - you really need to get it. An automatic door is the thing that stopped my hens from being killed at night by predators. It will give you great peace of mind and keep your chickens safe at night. I took one star off because the door uses AA batteries. I would have preferred a larger battery (some work off a lantern battery) and a solar option.

A Good Product - Shawn,

I ordered this about 4 months ago and knew it would be delayed in shipping so no issues there. It arrived in good shape. The instruction book was a bit lengthy due to the voluminous pages because of the multiple languages, but we figured it out. The door itself was really simple to attach to our coop and was pretty simple to program. The light . . . we never have gotten that to actually work, but since we have a separate light in the coop on a timer that stays on for several hours in the morning, and because our chickens all go into the coop well before the door closes. The inoperative light isn't a big deal and honestly, having a light go on for 5 minutes before the door opens and closes is, in my opinion, fairly useless anyhow, so the fact that it doesn't work isn't a big deal for me. In the 3 weeks we have had it, the door opens and closes exactly as it is supposed to, so that is a BIG 'plus'. The fact that it is a side closing door is a HUGE plus and the reason I ordered it in the first place. So, overall, very pleased with the product and would recommend it. If the light worked, it would get a '5 star' rating.

Works great for us. - Amy,

We only knock off one star because the shipping took so long. Other than that, it's a wonderful automatic door for our chickens. Works great so far, no problems. We recommend to our friends and family.

Love it, even with problems - Mellissa,

Purchased this in June and patiently waited for 3 months to receive. It was very easy to install and set up. I love the features of a coop light, DVC power adapter, light sensor, non-Guillotine style, and object sensor. Wish there was a solar option. Non-Battery options were important to me to avoid temp issues. Took a star away because we keep getting a ground fault code when we use it outside of factory setting. For example if we try to change the light sensitivity in light mode. It opens and closes a bit too dark for my ladies. It’s still functional for us given our increased security but given the price and time I spent, I’d like it to work out of the box as advertised.

Great product - Nigel,

Gives piece of mind chucks are secure at night, especially if we go away and the 'kids' are taking care of them. Also means we're not up at the crack of dawn in the summer. Easy to fit and set up, just can't comment on durability yet as only had it a couple of months (hence 4 stars)

Peace of Mind - Sarah,

Had this for some weeks and it’s a life changer. The chickens can be put into their run and then that’s it! No going back to close the coup later. Also no guilt trip lie ins, or dragging myself outside so early - great to know “the girls” are not coupesd up for any longer than necessary.

Simplicity and Convenience - Martin,

The coop door is easy to install and works great giving us a peace of mind that are hens are safe and sound. The only drawback is we were planning to run electricity to the coop and use the batteries for backup in case the electricity goes off but it’s not designed to do that and it’s not stated in the instructions. We had to make a phone call to find that out that it could mess up the motherboard and void the warranty.
