Escape Direction / door lock

Escape Direction
Escape Direction

When a fire occurs, many people don't know the correct escape route because they are unfamiliar with their surroundings and don't know the exact location of the fire. Besides, if many people run towards the same safety exit, a stampede may result, which is very dangerous.
Therefore, I design Escape Direction, which has combined with a door handle. It alerts you to escape the room by projecting and beeping if a fire happens. Escape Direction combines with IoT technology to plan the best escape route for each room and evacuate people efficiently. Just follow its light instructions, then you'll quickly get out of the fire and to safety.
