I think clever hackers who have any motivation to visit are not so
easily scared off by a bit of a technical challenge. Post some
combination of these on the wiki, where the solution is a valid door
code, and have a cron job that rotates them

Downloadable MP3 consisting of dtmf tones. Decode them for the answer
Math problem of reasonable complexity
Call a phone number, faking your caller id to our specifications
Resistor code puzzle
IPv6 connectivity challenge

Then throw the doorbell in the dumpster.
