Our partner Malonik is back with a new video, RUST Electricity Automatic Closing Doors, part of his RUST 101: Electricity Guide series. This video builds off the RUST solar panels video, which teaches players how to create a sustainable power source for their bases.

This video picks up from there to continue teaching how players can create an automatically closing door system. While thorough, Malonik keeps it simple and on point. This video will walk players through the necessary components and quick steps needed to get up and running.

With that, you’re here to watch his video, enjoy!

Hey guys! Mal here and today we’re continuing the electricity guide with automatic closing doors.


This build uses our solar panel and battery circuit for power. If you haven’t seen that video, make sure you check it out for a sustainable power source.


So, in order to do this, we’re going to need an electrical branch, a laser detector and a door controller. First put down your e-branch, the e-branch component allows us to choose how much of the mains power we dedicate to the smaller circuit. Run power from your mains to the power in on the branch. Hold e on the e-branch and set the power to the minimum setting of 2.


Next place your laser detector on the inside of the door that you want to automatically close. Run power from the e-branch’s branch out socket to the power in on the laser detector. You should now see a laser going across your door.


Lastly place a door controller on the door frame. Run power from the power out socket on your laser detector into the power in on your door controller. Once powered you need to pair the controller to the door by pressing e while looking at it. You will need to be standing in the laser in order for the door controller to be powered. Also, the door needs to be unlocked in order for it to pair.


There you have it, your door will now automatically open and close when you pass through the laser. If you want to set this up on multiple doors repeat this process treating the power out socket on your e-branch as your mains power. Additionally, you can substitute the laser for a pressure pad if you haven’t found the laser yet.


It’s also worth noting that the door controller can be used on window shutters as well. This allows you to create shooting floors with automated window shutters like this by using the same process that we’ve just covered.


That’s everything for this guide, keep an eye on my channel for more guides which are coming soon. Thanks for watching and I’ll see you guys in the next video.
