Zero-Touch / button of lift


We used to touch button of lift when we takes it, which makes the button full of germs on its surface after thousands of touch, therefore a lot of people don’t like touch it. Design of “Zero touch”changes the original button to infrared sensor to control the lift. It not only brings a new way of control, but also prevents us from staining fingers and spreading germs.
Make button of lift as hand held groove that can be furthered, setting infrared sensor device onto it, by this way to control the button.
