Attachment Kits

Your Autodoor comes with everything you need to attach it to a Mk2 Cube or a Wooden Coop. If you want to attach it to a Mk1 Cube, an Omlet Run, or traditional chicken wire you will need one of the attachment kits below. There are also kits to attach the control panel to the Mk1 or Mk2 Cube house.

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 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.

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

The light setting uses a sophisticated light sensor that can be adjusted by the user The light setting uses a sophisticated light sensor that can be adjusted by the user

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.

The time setting allows you to set an exact time for the door to open and close 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 and, for total peace of mind, 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 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 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.

Install on Any Chicken Run

You can also fit the Autodoor to traditional mesh style runs so if you have a homemade coop and chicken run the automatic door will make a great addition to your setup. Step-by-step instructions are provided on how to fit your automatic chicken door to all different types of mesh.

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, 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 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 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.

Works in All Weather Conditions

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 / -4 degrees fahrenheit.

You can place the control panel anywhere on your chicken coop or run

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. This means that you can place the control panel, which features the light sensor for the coop door, anywhere on your chicken coop or 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. The control panel comes with a bracket to make installation quick and easy wherever you choose to position yours.

Brilliant Product that makes life a lot easier - John, Gwynedd,

First of all I should say how impressed I am with the auto door. It's just awesome! I'm not a natural when it comes to engineering and assembly but it only took me an hour to install the auto door on my own. Well, to be honest, with a little assistance from the chickens who all decided to see what I was up to. Maybe using the treats bowl to hold the screws and bits wasn't the cleverest idea I've had! The control system is easy to set up but I'd suggest owners check the mechanism has functioned as expected the first time. On the first evening one of our hens was locked out and looking very sorry for herself. I changed the light level at which the closing system activates from 5% to 3%, which is perfect for our situation. These settings will vary depending on where the sensor is situated, shade etc. Battery power usage is very low, I expect we'll get at least a year from a set of Duracell rechargeables based on my measurements. The door opener makes life a lot easier. No more getting up super early to let the girls out in summer (I am not a morning person) for a start. If we're out and don't get back for bedtime, it's not a panic. The girls will be safe and sound behind the door. Talking of safe and sound, a friend of ours had an automatic door on his coop that opened vertically. All went well until the local fox managed to open the door by lifting it. The Omlet sideways opening door is totally secure from Mr Fox, just like the manual door. As with the rest of the Omlet range, it's a well thought out product that just does the job properly without any fuss.


Eggsellent product (sorry couldn’t resist) - Alex,

We bought ours at the same time as upgrading to a new eglu cube hen hut and it’s been running a few months now. On our old wooden hen hut we’ve had a few other auto pophole openers, this Omlet one, is quite frankly in the premier league of pophole openers. It’s reliable, smooth, quiet, and easily fitted and operated. It has just one small weakness you can’t operate it on a combination of light and time. However, we give it a really big thumbs up, despite the cost it really is worth buying.


Automatic door = freedom and flexibility - Alisons,

LOVE the automatic coop door! Super easy to install. Not too bad to program (mine was pre-production, so I think the instructions may have got better defined). Well-built. Secure. And, most importantly, it's added a whole new level of freedom and flexibility to our lives... no more do we need to worry about being home on time to get the girls in for the night before the nocturnal critters come out to play! And going away overnight no longer requires a pet sitter or neighbour's help. Love it!


We love the reliability of the door! - Ruth,

We really like the auto door. Previously, we had a different light sensitive auto door but it was not integrated into the door and so was more likely to fail.We use the light sensitive setting to ensure that it opens as soon as our girls are ready to get up for the day and closes shortly after they take themselves off to bed at night. The battery indicator on the control panel is really handy too!


I absolutely 100% love it! It is literally a life changer for us hen mums! - Hayley,

I installed it onto the Cube as I wanted them to be able to get up when they wanted and go back to sleep without the risk of Mr Fox getting to them. It was really easy to install and took about 20 minutes. The instructions are very user friendly. I love the freedom it gives me, I opted to use the timer setting for my chickens. It has completely changed my lifestyle. I even went through last winter leaving work for half a hour so I could go and lock the girls up safe and sound before dark. I suppose its not only changed my lifestyle but also my girls. I don't think there are many people that keep chickens purely for the eggs. We all want to give the best life for our chickens, especially as mine have been rescued from a horrible life in a battery farm. So for the girls to have consistency, waking up at the same time every day, having as long as possible to roam around as they please, and then put themselves to bed knowing that they are going to be safe. Its perfect for us.
