This door cannot be opened by clicking the right mouse unlike wood. Protected door requires the use of auxiliary devices such as buttons, pressure plates or levers.
In Minecraft there is a similar electricity — red dust. Experienced players using this technology to build calculators, complex traps and even computer processors. Buttons, levers, stretching and pressure plates types of switches that activate a Redstone signal.
In the elementary variant it is enough to set one of the switches close to the iron door to open it. The button or lever can be placed on a nearby vertical surface to which attached the door. The pressure plate need to be placed directly in front of the door.
