Here’s a clever solution to keeping your door locked: It’s called Haven and it attaches to the floor and the doorframe. To open your door, you simply disengage the floor attachment and open it normally. There are no locks to pick or deadbolts to crack, simply because you don’t need to use those to keep the door closed.
Created by Alex Bertelli, former Army man turned business development expert in Tennessee, and serial entrepreneur Clay Banks, the product uses your phone or a specially keyed fob to open and close the door at will.
“We built this because we knew there had to be a better way to use technology to protect our families and we didn’t want to be a victim of the next break-in,” said Banks.
The Haven will be made in the U.S. and will be constructed of sturdy glass-filled nylon polymer, steel, and aluminum. They plan to assemble the parts in Tennessee and will be holding a Kickstarter this month.
“Our competitors are focused on converting traditional deadbolts into smart locks, but with the rise of break-ins that doesn’t make the lock any safer. We are setting ourselves apart by creating a stronger smarter solution. Placing the lock at the bottom of the door will prevent, protect and delay entry into someone’s home by using the strength of the foundation,” said Banks.
The company is headquartered in Nashville.
You can sign up for more information on their site, Havenlock.com, and expect more details as they finalize the design. For now, however, it looks like a solid way to keep out intruders, zombies, dragons, and even wizards.
