Tired of early mornings in the summer? Can't make it home in time to close the coop door at night? The Autodoor from Omlet is what you've been waiting for. It's the safest and most convenient way to let your chickens in and out of their coop. Designed to work with any wooden chicken coop, it can also be attached directly to the Eglu Cube . Omlet's automatic chicken coop door opener is battery powered and combines both a timer and a light sensor, giving you the ultimate options for flexibility and control. The unique integrated frame and door design can be easily attached to your chicken house or run and has been tested to work down to -20°C.
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.

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.
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.
The Autodoor is designed to fit directly to the Eglu Cube chicken coops. If you have an Eglu Cube Mk2 (Cubes sold after 2016) 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 (sold separately) 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.
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.
Owners of wooden chicken coops can also benefit from the Omlet automatic chicken coop door opener as it is compatible with virtually any design of wooden coop. 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. Not only is the Autodoor a great practical addition to a wooden chicken coop, it is also a significant upgrade on traditional wooden doors in terms of insulation, security and durability. Clear instructions are provided on how to fit the automatic door directly to your wooden chicken coop quickly and securely.
The Autodoor can be installed on the inside..
...or installed on the outside of wooden coops.
Door and controls are easily mounted and include instructions.
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.
Four AA batteries are all that is required to power the Omlet Autodoor, negating the 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 a minimum of 6 months. Please note that batteries are not supplied with the automatic chicken coop door.
The Omlet automatic chicken door has been engineered to work reliably and dependably through the harshest of conditions. The weather-proof casing of the Autodoor and the control panel ensures the electronics, motor and gear are safe from the elements. The door has been rigorously tested in extreme conditions down to -20 degrees Celsius. Chicken keepers all across Canada operate their doors at even colder temperatures without issue!
The Autodoor has been tested for reliability in extreme conditions down to -20°C.
One of the great features of the automatic chicken coop door opener is that the LCD control panel is separate from the door itself and is connected via a durable cable. Mounting brackets are available to buy that allow you to fit the control panel to an Eglu Cube house, or you can position the control panel anywhere on your chicken run. Not only is the control panel easy to use, it is neatly enclosed in a triple weather-proof casing for durability and will look great as part of your setup. It also features the light sensor for the automatic door.
The Omlet Autodoor comes with everything you need in one complete package and the unique integrated frame and door assembly means you have minimum assembly. Screws and fittings are included in the box for attaching your automatic chicken door to either an Eglu Cube Mk2 or a wooden chicken coop of any design. Simply install 4 AA batteries in the control panel and connect it to the door unit using the cable, press the on button and it’s ready to go. If you would like to position the Autodoor onto a wire mesh or you would like to mount the control panel onto the Eglu Cube house rather than the run then please choose an attachment kit.

I can now leave my chickens overnight without having to be there in the evening and morning to close and open the coop door. And I don't have to worry about racoons. The automatic door works great!
I love how easy this door was to install. It took less than 30 minutes from unpacking the box to having it on the wall. My chickens love it.
