A contactless elevator is a successful manifestation of media-free aerial imaging technology in real life, and to do this, there’s one thing we need to eliminate – the tactile, elevator button.
Despite the familiar face and feel of elevator buttons, let’s be honest – they’re a thing of the past. As the world adjusts to the “new normal,” less physical contact among shared surfaces is being encouraged – which is why touchless call and service buttons for elevators that can be operated with a simple wave are as timely as they get.
With an understanding that conventional elevator buttons are among the most-touched surfaces in multi-tenant establishments, no-contact call and service buttons offer the same convenience and intuitive use of pressing a button – but minus the risk for undesired viral agents. Its sensor can detect hand movements from very close distances up to a few centimeters, allowing passengers to either call or pick their desired floors with a mere wave. In today’s era of shifting hygienic standards demanding less physical interactions, touchless inventions such as these call and service buttons could be a game-changer.
With today’s growing range of future-ready, highly-scalable innovations, these touchless call and service buttons, in the most subtle ways, can offer the much-needed safety and reassurance for daily elevator passengers as they adapt to a changing, post-pandemic urban world.
