If you want to have a quiet personal space, you can press the button on the handle and then the outer surface of the door will raise its projections,then people cannot knock anymore. The handle will rotate to the dark cell,so they cannot open the door from the outside .In the normal state, the hedgehog door remain as an ordinary door.
