Safety is of a main concern therefore only standard off the shelf doorway hardware keeps your secret door closed. The hardware attaches to a sheet of plywood you supply backing your secret door. It is opened by linear actuators that mimics a normal person pushing on the door to open it. The tension or pound force can be adjusted to be strong or weak (20-40-lbs)
Once the door has been opened it must be closed and reset in two separate stages reducing the possibility of accidental closing. the actuators must be electronically reset and then the door must be manually pushed shut and only by force push locked into place. Once closed the door can still be opened from the inside by simply pushing on it to open.
