Works well and arrived quickly by courier.
Awesome product wish I had brought earlier. After getting the first one I then brought a second one. Easy to install and nice to know my girls are safe at night.
Would highly recommend
Excellent prompt service as always. Thank you
Awesome people to deal with.Door fitted great.Easy to set up & works very very well.Thoroughly recommended
They’re working well. The pullets found their way on the second day. The battery says 0% I read the batteries need replacing every four months? I’ll give it this first month for the hens to settle and then change the batteries just in case there’s an issue. I’m not an electrician etc, it was easy to install. It took me a few goes to programme but now it’s easy. The instructions for when to install were not correct for the package( or I made a mistake) have learnt that although moving the eglu is easy, I’m careful not to change it’s orientation unless necessary. I have a winter and summer side of the garden for them.
My hens are happy and I am happy! No early-morning wake ups! One little Silkie still figuring out the night time door (sitting half in and half out!)but while she figures it out the door won’t close on her as registers she’s there. Worth getting!
Great service as always, and fast delivery. Easy to install and set up, looks really sturdy and well made. Has been in a month now and can't believe we put off getting one of these for so many years. So nice not to have to be up at the crack of dawn to let the chooks out - especially with the super early summer days approaching!
So pleased we went with the omlet door .. we definitely can see it’s sturdy and well made with quality fittings . It’s on the newly made coop .. now just waiting to get its first pullet flatmates!
Delivery was fast and items were well packaged.. wouldn’t hesitate to deal with Appleton’s again .
This is great. Gives me the freedom to go away for a few days. Easy to install and great tutorial on Youtube re programming the timer. The installation does not faze the chickens one bit. A very good buy although not the cheapest one available. Would highly recommend.
Easy to follow instructions. And seem to operate well.

Just 4x AA batteries reliably power the Autodoor for up to 6 months.
Please note that batteries are not supplied with the Automatic Chicken Coop Door and if you are using the Autodoor combined with a Coop Light you will have up to 4 months battery life.

Safe and Sound
The Autodoor uses sophisticated safety sensors to protect hens that dawdle in the doorway, just like elevator doors. After gently nudging and opening again, the Autodoor will attempt to close 5 more times until the path is clear.
Does Your Flock Stay Up Late?
Omlet have designed the Coop Light to guide late night hens to their roost. Powered by and perfectly synced up with your Autodoor, it comes on 5 minutes before the door is scheduled to close. Once everyone is safely tucked up and the door closed, the coop light gently turns off.Shop Coop LightHow to program the Autodoor in Light Mode
