    Do you not know the reference for a secret room which has its entry hidden by a bookshelf? Time to read the Diary of Anne Frank again, apparently.

    He needs to tighten up the cables to the latches more or include some turn buckles. As for the Anne Frank reference, that was a doorway hidden by a book case to an attic. This guy just wants to hide his personal things from prying eyes. Whoops, I misspelled porn.

    Should make it with RFID and base the opening on the distance of the book.
