Environmental control systems and operating aids
Environmental control systems, switches and door and window or sun visor openers are electrical operating elements. They control equipment in the personal environment or at the workplace.
People with limited physical functions can control devices and electrical installations using environmental control systems. In this case, signals are transmitted via infrared or radio to control the device. Unlike smart home equipment, environmental control systems must move within a certain distance radius to control an item.
Pressing a button or sensing a sensor activates the openers. When opening or closing, the sensors detect if something is in the way. The technology required for this can also be retrofitted to existing products.
