OUT LET COVER DIRECTED TO VISUALLY IMPAIRED PEOPLE
Intelligent out let cover directed to improve the life quality of the visually impaired.
It has a proximity sensor and a sound alarm trigger.
When the visually impaired get close to the wall socket the proximity sensor senses their presence and fires off a sound alarm. This makes them know the exact position of the socket.
With this product the visually impaired will be embedded in the community life thanks to an easier and better response to their basic necessities.
SIMPLE, UNEXPENSIVE AND EVEN SO PERFECT!!
