The New Normal: Touchless Access Control

February 1, 2022 -- The demand for touchless access control solutions has become a priority with the emergence of COVID-19. The ongoing pandemic is changing the way businesses, employers and building owners and managers view security and safety.

One of the most touched surfaces in a building is a door handle. Using touchless access control technology is in high demand and is a simple solution to help reduce the spread of germs.

To adapt to this “new normal,” STI announces their NoTouch® IR Switches aid in minimizing physical contact and decreasing the risk of virus contraction.

To exit or enter a building without touching the door, a user must simply wave their hand in front of the no touch button. The active infrared is designed to detect the motion of a wave, send an electrical signal to the door operator, and unlatch the time adjustable door. The touch-free action reduces germs from transferring to hundreds of hands and surfaces, helping to promote health and safety.

NoTouch IR Switches are constructed of heavy-duty die cast aluminum (NT-CA series) or medical/food grade 304 stainless steel (NT-SS series). Both versions of switches have a dual color status LED (green/red or red/green), and an approximate 1.5~6 inch detection range. Cast aluminum button includes three interchangeable snap-in illuminated messages (white OPEN, green EXIT, blue EXIT), and is customizable. Stainless steel button is available with operating instruction options: OPEN, EXIT or a door symbol.
