Choose from mains or battery power.

The control panel can be attached to your chicken run or chicken coop, and connects to mains power with the 6ft cable provided. Alternatively, 4x AA batteries will power the Smart Autodoor for up to 3 months.

Doors Closing

The safety sensors will stop the doors from closing if there's something in the way.

Sophisticated sensors protect hens that dawdle in the doorway. Once the path is clear, you’ll get a notification on your phone that the door is closed.

Shine a light

Add a coop light to encourage your girls to bed at night.

We designed our Coop Light to lead lingerers in to roost. Powered by and synced to your Smart Autodoor, it comes on 5 minutes before the door is scheduled to close. Once everyone is tucked up and the door’s safely shut, the light turns gently off.

Reliable takes time

Our Smart Autodoor’s reliability is a result of our rigorous approach to product design: invent, test, refine, repeat. 200 prototypes and 3 years of the Omlet Perfection Process mean it can take anything in Mother Nature’s armory. 

  • Tested to work to as low as -4°F and up to 150°F

  • Waterproof casing to IPX6 standards

  • Shatterproof ABS construction

  • Stands up to severe storms

Frequently Asked Questions

You can choose between the light setting, i.e. choosing at which level of daylight the coop should open and close, time setting, i.e. setting specific times when you know your flock has returned to the coop or are ready to go out for the day. There is also a manual mode where the door opens and closes only when you press the button.

On the app you can also override your current settings by pressing “Open” or “Close”.

For safety and peace of mind, there is also a built-in failsafe system for opening the door completely by hand. You can find out how to do this by checking the instruction manual.

You can change which setting you’re using whenever you want, but it’s not possible to use different settings at the same time.

Chickens are flock animals and creatures of habit, and in most cases they will go back to the coop within half an hour of each other at around the same time every evening. Observe your hens for a few days and make a note of when they tend to go to bed, and set the door accordingly.

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.

The Omlet App is available in the Google Play store for Android users, and the App Store for iOS users.

Simply open the relevant app store, and search for "Omlet", or use the following links:

The Autodoor cannot be fitted to any other Eglus than the Eglu Cube Mk1 and Mk2, and the Eglu Pro. You can however, using an attachment kit, attach it to any Omlet run.

There are two main reasons to add a coop light. Firstly, having a light in the coop will encourage the chickens to return to roost 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 coop light uses a LED light at 1.5 watt. That is the equivalent of a 15 watt light bulb.

We would suggest changing the batteries when the control panel or the app is showing the level as 5% or lower. It’s good to check the batteries regularly to make sure they are in good condition.

You must use the Autodoor as specified in the instruction manual by using either our power adapter or 4 AA batteries. We cannot offer any warranty (expressed or implied), support or advice if you connect any other forms of power supply to your Autodoor. There is a high risk that you may damage your Autodoor, and the product may not work as intended.

No, the motor in the door is designed to open the door horizontally.

Yes, there is a manual mode where the door opens and closes only when you press the button on the app or straight on the control panel. 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.

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.

The control panel comes with a mounting bracket that can be drilled into wood or secured to mesh. If you want to place your control panel straight on the Eglu Pro or Cube, you will need to add an additional bracket that hooks onto the coop.

The Autodoor fits straight on the Eglu Pro Chicken Coop, 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.
We don’t provide any solution for extending the cable, but we do sell a replacement cable that could be used for that purpose. If you want to extend the cable we suggest you speak to an electrician to make sure it’s done safely and correctly.

You do not have to use mains power if using the smart features of the new Omlet Smart Autodoor control panel. We do however recommend it where possible, as it will improve the functionality of the product. Using mains power will enable the control panel to maintain a constant Wi-Fi connection, meaning when you send a command to the door, it will be performed almost immediately. On battery you will have to wait up to 10 minutes for the next time your control panel wakes up and checks in with our servers.

When running on battery with the recommended power settings, we estimate you should expect 2+ months of battery life with normal usage before you need to replace the batteries.

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.

We recommend connecting to the wireless network you wish to use with your phone, and standing where you wish to place your control panel. If your phone indicates a good Wi-Fi signal, it should be sufficient to use with the Omlet Smart Autodoor. If your phone only shows one bar of Wi-Fi, or none at all, then you could find the signal is too weak for the control panel to work effectively. You may wish to move the coop or access point to improve coverage, or purchase a range extender.

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.

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.

The cable you will receive with your door is 5'10".

Auto Door Saved My Chickens Life!
Jason, Utah,
Day 2 of the girls out in the Eglu Cube and the door was set to close at 9:30pm. I came out to make sure the girls got in safely and one of my Barnavelders walked up and sat down in the line of fire. I ran over to the door to stop it from closing but the door immediately stopped before crushing her! So grateful for this!

So convenient!
Julie,
I love this door. We installed it on our homemade coop more than 3 years ago! I have had zero problems even in subzero northern Illinois weather. I set the door to open and close by time so I have a little more control over it. I am going to change the batteries for the first time. Yes, the first time in 3 years. It says I have 20 percent left but I'm being proactive. Great door that makes chicken tending easier. I have my sight on an Eglu Up in the near future.
