Title: REMOVABLE, REMOTELY-CONTROLLED DOOR LOCKING APPARATUS
Abstract:
In order to secure a door in a locked (or locked open) position without a key, such as to resist a forced entry through the door, a removable, remotely-controlled door locking apparatus is provided, which includes a housing configured for temporary fixed engagement to a portion of the door. The housing has a front facing surface sloped forward and downward at an angle from horizontal as taken from a top to a bottom of the apparatus, and an actuator arranged therein so as to be substantially parallel to the sloping front facing surface between upper and lower ends thereof. The apparatus may further include a movable foot attached to the actuator and configured, under actuator control, to be extended in a lock state against a floor surface to secure the door or retracted in an unlock state, based on a wireless signal received from a remote smart device.
