Make your existing Autodoor smart and stay connected, wherever you are, by replacing your control panel with our new Wi-Fi enabled smart version.

  • Get open & close notifications on your phone
  • Control & set up all settings in the app
  • Manually open & close the door from your phone
  • Complete peace of mind wherever you are
  • Get the Omlet app for Apple & Android
  • To switch, simply unplug your old control panel.

    Our new control panel has an improved, user friendly interface and a sleek new design. You can still manually change settings on the control panel and it attaches to the coop or run in exactly the same way as before.

    The Smart Autodoor Control Panel comes with a 6ft cable to connect to mains power. Your door can also be run by battery power for up to 3 months.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    If you have connected your Autodoor to the Wi-Fi, we recommend using the mains power supply you received with your door. This way your door will constantly be checking in and you will be able to use the door and the app as intended.

    You can run your door on batteries, but to save power the door will only check in with the Wi-Fi every ten minutes. In between those moments you will not be able to immediately open or close the door. You can click the button to open or close, but the action won’t be performed until the next check in.

    If you connect your Autodoor to a solar panel or any other type of power source, we will not be able to offer any warranty (expressed or implied), support or advice.

    Go to the app store where you normally download new apps and type in Omlet.

    The smart features are designed to be used with a constant, reliable power supply, and we recommend that you use mains to get the best experience.

    All the settings are saved in the control panel, so the door will function just as you want it to. Once the connection is restored, you will be able to continue using the app.

    Yes, you can share access to a door with family and friends, so they can see the status of the door and get notifications. You decide if you want to give full access or just allow the person to check the status of the door.

    This depends on the strength of your Wi-Fi, but it’s advisable to keep the door within at least 65 ft of a Wi-Fi source.

    No, you can control the door and change the settings just using the control panel. If you’re running your door on mains, you can just set it up as normal and program the door on the control panel. However, if you want to use batteries, the firmware will initially need to be updated. To do this, you must:

  • Download the app and connect the control panel to your Wi-Fi
  • Wait for 5-10 minutes for the firmware to update
  • Do a factory reset (check the instruction manual for information on how to do this)
  • Exit discovery mode on the control panel
  • Once that is done you can set up the door and control panel on the coop and program the settings you want. Please contact our Customer Experience team if you have any issues.

    Great experience!
    Erica,
    Being able to upgrade just the control panel was a huge plus for me, I have two doors already and didn't need more. This gives me plenty of confidence in the product and company. The app is very easy to use, I had some minor trouble with initial setup but chalk it up to operator error. I accidentally turned off WiFi on the control panel, and had to troubleshoot to find the problem. The user documentation might benefit some folks if it were not more comprehensive. The app does everything I want it to, and smoothly. I love being about to see when the doors are opening and closing. Remote door control is an epic feature, though I haven't had to use it yet because the light sensors work incredibly well! For me the most useful feature is knowing door status without needing to go outside with a flashlight. I actually feel like I could go camping without a chicken minder now. Thank you Omlet!

    Very pleased with the ability to program the door remotely
    Eddie, California,
    An excellent idea I bought them as soon as I have the chance. As most people discover especially when you use the open and close by time function; as you enter the summer months of course the days get longer and the chickens come out sooner so you have to change the opening times and closing times of the door since the days are longer. In the past I would have to monitor this from some video cameras I have to determine what time the chickens were getting up so I can make sure the doors were open. Unlike most I use the two doors I have they go to my feeder box which has the two feeding bins in it. I have a different kind of door in my coop. Anyway though it's so convenient to be able to reprogram the opening and closing times from in stores without having to go out to the Run each time I noticed I need to change the opening or closing times based on the longer days of spring and summer. One suggestion I would have which would be great for me is if it would be possible to create the upgrade on the software so that one could create multiple open and close times. For people using this on a coupe it doesn't have much application but for me using it for my feeder doors it would allow me to create multiple opening and closing times which would be a great way to produce pilfering from squirrels and other creatures that occasionally access the feeders during the day. Anyway great product would love to see such a software update that would be terrific. Again I use these for my feeder box two of them inside a box with two doors for each feeder. Works really well. I typically use the time function because there's just too much variability with the light sensor function it usually opens way too late. But if you're using the time function or even I guess the manual function this is a terrific upgrade to your door.

    So easy to install/switch out!
    Mary,
    I have an older Omlet door and I saw an email about this 'smart' controller. I thought how nice it would be to have this controlled by an app so I know for SURE that the door is open/closed. I learned that I could switch out the control panels so I ordered and got my package yesterday. It was easy peasy to switch out and get it hooked up to the app. I felt like superwoman. I had notifications overnight telling me it was checking in and this morning got a text at 6:30 a.m. that the door was open. This will be a heavenly peace of mind when we are away and during inclement weather. Thanks again, Omlet!

    Wonderful addition!
    Nick,
    We've had the standard automated Omlet door for a few years now but this new control panel somehow made it even better! It doesn't remove any of the best features of the original. Rather, adds smartphone control and a dedicated 12v hookup while keeping the batteries in as backup if you want it. Installation was ultra easy and all we had to do was unplug the old unit and plug the new one in. Super impressive!
