Ador vs ChickenGuard vs Omlet door vs LOVSHARE Automatic Chicken Coop Door Opener
The aodor has worked great and it comes preprogrammed too!
It is easy to install and comes with helpful instructions. It is light to handle and it works really great!
I’ve been using mine for more than 2 years and it has been very reliable. I often set it on light sensor with the last girl delay. I was concerned that streetlight or cars might trigger it, but that’s not a problem at all.
In fact, the geared system holds the door shut plus it has a lip at the bottom to prevent prying it up. It’s a great door! Absolutely love it!
I have two chicken guard and they do work well. Each as 4 holes for screws so as long as you mount on to your frame (or bolt it onto hardware cloth) it should work fine.
It uses 4 x AA batteries and the average lifespan is 12 months. A great buy!

Omlet Automatic Door
My name is Jake and I have been using the Omlet automatic door for 15 months now.
The door is easy to install on a wood panel, and it was really simple to cut the hole to the measurements in the instructions.
Battery life is great – after a year it’s still at 80%. I have it on a time, which is relatively easy to program once you’ve got the hang of it.
The light sensor works great but its most effective for me when I program it as and when daylight changes.

Hi, Ella here.
This coop door is very dependable and inexpensive too. It opens and closes with a light sensor so I don’t have to keep resetting the times.
Once thing to bear in mind if you decide to buy this is that it would need quite a large wooden section to mount it to.
