Introducing Omlet's first-ever Automatic Chicken Coop Door - 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 Mk1 and Mk2. 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 comes with everything you need to attach it to your chicken house or run and has been tested to work down to -20degC. Like a personal chicken coop concierge, the Autodoor will always make sure your chicken’s coop is securely closed at night even when you’re running late.
Purchased this door at the same time as we got the Eglu Cube, and so glad we did! It means we don't have to be around to close the door at night and worse, open it at dawn each morning. We worried whether the noise it makes would stress the chickens but they quickly got used to it. The 20min delay means they have plenty of time to get inside before it closes. We're using the light setting quite successfully. I'm certain they are much warmer at night than in their old thin wooden coop with the door open all the time! I like knowing they are secure at night and none of the neighbourhood cats can get in and disturb them.
A wonderful contraption! Very happy we have it, it’s made a big difference.
Awesome, so pleased with our purchase. Great piece of mind, really reliable
I’ve already sent a glowing report back. 🤩
It’s pricey but I absolutely love it. I bought it so we could have some freedom to go away during half term. Chooks managed to use it to get in and out of their coop and I didn’t have to get my neighbor to come early in the morning / late at night to see them. I have the older Eglu go up so I attached it onto the run, and it works like a dream.
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 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. A separate mounting bracket is required if you would like to attach the control panel to the main housing of the Eglu Cube.

Four AA batteries are all that is required to power the Omlet Autodoor, there is no 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 12 months. Please note that batteries are not supplied with the automatic chicken coop door.
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.
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.Buy Now
