Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

[0085] WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:
1. A security system to prevent unwanted entrance through a hinged barrier comprising:
A member associated with the barrier and adapted to extend from a first length
to a second length;
An actuation mechanism coupled to the member and adapted to extend the
member from the first length to the second length and to contract the
member from the second length to the first length;
A receptacle adjacent the barrier for receiving a portion of the member when
the member is extended by the actuating mechanism;
A hinge assembly substantially opposite the receptacle and adjacent the barrier
and coupled to another end of the member; and
Such that when the member is actuated to the extended position, the member
receptacle and hinge assembly form a security system to prevent
unwanted entrance through the barrier.
2. The system of claim 1, wherein the barrier is a door.
3. The system of claim 2, wherein the barrier is a residential door.
4. The system of claim 1, wherein system resides within the body of the door.
5. The system of claim 1, wherein the member and the actuation mechanism reside within the body of the door.
6. The system of claim 1, wherein the member is a telescoping tubular structure.

7. The system of claim 1, wherein the member is a high strength plate.
8. The system of claim 1, wherein the actuating mechanism comprises a rack and gear assembly.
9. The system of claim 1, wherein the actuating mechanism is associated with a deadbolt lock, such that keyed access is provided on an exterior of the door.
10. The system of claim 1, further comprising an override mechanism to prevent the member from being retracted when the mechanism is active.
1 1. The system of claim 10, wherein the override mechanism is a pin that secures the member within the receptacle.
12. The system of claim 10, wherein the override mechanism is selected from the group consisting of: a pin that secures the member within the receptacle, a card reader, a biometric scanner, a lock and any combination of the foregoing.

13. The system of claim 1, wherein the hinge assembly allows the member to pivot in the plane of the barrier.
14. The system of claim 1, wherein the actuating mechanism comprises a handle to effect manual actuation of the member.
15. The system of claim 1, further comprising a motor to automatically actuate the member between its extended and retracted positions.
16. The system of claim 1, wherein the receptacle and the hinge assembly are secured to structural components adjacent the barrier to provide sufficient strength against intrusion.
