Do I have to use the app?

The new Omlet Smart Autodoor has all of the same functionality as the previous version of the Autodoor if you do not wish to connect it to wifi and use the app to control it. When the control panel is first powered on, it will enter Discovery Mode. Simply press OK on the control panel to exit discovery mode, and you can use the control panel offline as before.

Connecting the control panel to wifi and the Omlet App allows you to receive notifications that your door has opened and closed as expected, and control the door from wherever you are in the world, giving you the peace of mind that your chickens are safe and secure, whether you’re on the sofa, running late at work, or enjoying the sun on a vacation thousands of miles away

Please see our article about upgrading the firmware if you plan to not use the app, and run the control panel on battery power
