Automatic Door Openers

September 3rd, 2008 | Tags:

Some of the doors at work have that have automatic openers have a sign next to them indicating that you should not use the automatic opener if the door is locked. My thoughts, approximately in order:

1. Yeah, that’s kind of funny. Why would you try to open a locked door?

2. Umm, I guess if you had to use the automatic opener, then there’s not much of a way to figure out that the door is locked (besides the automatic opener not working).’

3. Dang it, why isn’t there an interlock between the automatic opener and door lock mechanism so that the user could find out the door was locked by some sort of feedback. It shouldn’t be that hard.

4. Damn, that’s really inconsiderate.
