Environment controls, switches and door, window or sun visor openers are electrical operating elements. They control equipment in the personal environment or at the workplace.
People with limited bodily functions can control devices and electrical installations using environmental controls. Signals are transmitted by infrared or radio to control the equipment. In contrast to smart home equipment, an environment control system must move within a certain distance radius to control an object.
By pressing a button or measuring a sensor, the openers are activated. When opening or closing, the sensors detect whether something is in the way. The necessary technology can also be retrofitted to existing products.
