I have the auto door and coop light just arrived and I got that all up but do not see a manual option to run the light. I am not using the door right now because they all do not go into the coop at the same time so I manually open and close. I was going through the set up of light and the book and do not see a way to manually turn just that light on and leave it on until I personally turn it off. Does anyone know how to operate that light manually and make it stay on until I turn it off? Otherwise, going to have to remove this Omlet light and did find on Amazon a small magnetic light that I can use the magnetic back to put on the top of roof where that metal attachment is and it is remote enabled so I can sit in the comfort of my home and turn it on when I want. Of course I still manually open and close their door which I will probably always do. The autodoor is great idea but I like to open the back and inspect the chickens before they sleep for the night. Also rub vetRX under their wings once a week.

Well according to the video I just watched about the coop light I should be able to do manual mode and it should stay on until I choose to turn it off. Will test that in a bit. Maybe I did something wrong on the install.

Well that did not work stayed on for maybe 2 minutes and then off. Going to factory reset the device and not set up open close times on the door and keep it at manual and then see if the light will stay on until I turn it off. Also going to email Omlet and inquire.

Hope you get it sorted. 

I don't have the light for mine but we set the door to close an hour after they have gone to bed.

Hi, if you get a response please let me know! New Eglu owner and I can only get it to stay on for 10 minutes at the most and it is on manual settings. Surely there must be a way to leave it on for longer whilst I am waiting for the girls to go to bed. Thanks

Yeah. The facotry reset did not resolve the issue. The light when in manual mode does not stay on until I decide to turn it off. It turns off after like 3 minutes. I removed the coop light and just went with my magnet one I used before that I put on the top metal thing that connects the roof. Yes, I have to change the batteries once a month but it stays on. My husband is going to try and figure out how to use the 12v stuff in the autodoor area that things plug into and do a remote control light. He is good with electronics. Was going to return the light but it is 15.99 and with shipping would really be a wash so who knows. Maybe he could use the light and figure out how to bypass the turn off in 3 minutes.

If the light is faulty, do you not get free postage ?

Seems a bit of a cheek to charge if it doesn't work properly.

Yes, it only stays on for a couple of minutes after manually turning it on, that seems to be how it's designed. I guess it's intended to save the batteries.

I've removed my light now - it isn't much use to me as it is. I'm planning on buying something else. If you figure out how to override the automatic switch off, please let me know!
