At Knock Knock, we understand the frustration of having your privacy invaded when in the middle of an online meeting, studying, or working. The constant interruption of individuals opening your door and leaving them open on their way out can cause unwanted distractions and disturbances. That's why we set out to create a solution that would allow individuals to control their own privacy with ease. Introducing the first ever automated door closer, which can be activated with a simple click of a button or a voice command. Our minimalistic and sleek design will attach to the door frame or side wall and use a motor powered arm to seamlessly close the door. This innovative device is designed to provide individuals with a convenient and secure way to close their doors, ensuring that unwanted interruptions and distractions are kept at bay. Say goodbye to loud noises and other disturbances caused by your door being left open, and hello to the peace and quiet that you need to focus and be productive.

We are a public safety company that aims to make college campuses safer. ADT reports that 82% of college students feel unsafe walking on campus alone. We are here to remove this fear. We created the Salus Security Band: a discreet emergency wristband for college students for when they are faced with a threat. We have currently tested our first prototype with a university and have garnered outstanding responses and feedback. With this feedback, we began producing our second prototype and are looking to manufacture it in May. If you have any questions or would like to connect further, email: [email protected]
