One of the most frequently asked questions we get is related to the fear that Mindr is going to "lock" people in their rooms. Be assured; this is not what Mindr does. Mindr shuts the door, then disengages. That means that after the device closes the door, the door can easily be opened as it normally would. The Mindr unit does not provide any resistance or lock the door shut.
What if I need to get out as the Mindr unit is closing the door?
If the Mindr unit detects the sound of an activated smoke alarm and starts to shut the door, and someone is in the path of the door or standing nearby and wants to get out, the unit will not overpower you; you will be able to reopen the door easily even while it's in the act of closing.
Today's fires are more toxic than ever. Synthetic materials in homes burn faster and create more dangerous fumes and smoke than at any time in history. If a fire breaks out while your family is sleeping or napping, they can be overwhelmed by fumes before they even wake up. The simple act of closing your door can save your life or that of someone you love. Mindr listens for your smoke alarm with its special microphone and proprietary listening algorithm, and when it hears it going off, it closes your door. This simple act buys you the precious time needed in many cases for the fire department to arrive to help you.
