"Both of my hands are full, one with an umbrella and the other with a shopping bag. But it's so convenient as the door opens easily even on a rainy day."
- On a rainy day, Mrs. A comes home from grocery shopping. The front door of her newly built house unlocks automatically when she reaches for The handle. So she doesn't have lo fumble for her keys in her purse while she holds her umbrella and shopping bags. Though she's tired from carrying heavy shopping bags, she's cheerful when she enters the house because of this welcome convenience.
OMRON's pre-touch sensor incorporated in the door handle transmits radio waves intermittently. It can deduce a person's intention to unlock the door by detecting a hand reaching for the handle. With this innovative home entry system, all the resident needs to do is to have the key in a bag or pocket. The system will handle the rest by unlocking the door automatically.
