Of course, other parts such as coding device and fingerprint card reader and face recognition device or chassis key can also be added to the above device.

  • – A pressure sensor – e.g., a floor mat which reacts to the pressure of someone standing on it.
  • – An infrared curtain or beam which shines invisible light onto sensors; if someone or something blocks the beam, the door is triggered open.
  • A motion sensor uses low-power microwave radar for the same effect.
  • – A remote sensor (e.g. based on infrared or radio waves) can be triggered by a portable remote control, or is installed inside a vehicle. These are popular for garage doors.
