I just leave the door alone.  You  can change the response of the beans

(So it's a little like Politics Polka: Two steps forward and two steps back.) My Bean Mass Temperature indicator is only good for about five degree sensitivity, but at least with this I can make sure there is no DROP in BMT caused by opening the door.
