PicoBell -Touchless bell switch


PicoBell: Stay clean – do it touchless!

  •     Ringing without contact
  •     Set up and ready
  •     Range up to 100 m

The non-contact bell switch detects the approach of the hand at a distance of 20 cm. In this way, it immediately prevents the risk of smear infection without any effort.

The PicoBell is delievered with a wireless bell for the socket and a mobile wireless bell with a belt clip.

  • Touchless bellPrevent transmission of viruses and bacteria, hygienically
  • Plug-n-Playquick installation without wiring, ready for use within minutes
  • Extremely low energy consumption – environmentally friendly, maintenance free
  • Extraneous light independent, robust, mobile, compatible – broad application field


Through a simple “wave “ or „approach” of the hand inside an area of around 20 cm distance control your bell with the PicoBell and thus enable your patients, visitors and employees to ring the bell without having to touch the bell and protect them from further infections.

The switch works without wiring, so he can also be used quickly in mobile emergency facilities.


Energy saving

The calculated life expectancy of the battery with a normal switching cycle of a typical light switch is approximately 70 years. That batteries today have approximately a 20-25 years physical life expectancy, means that the PicoBell will provide a maintenance free service for this duration.

A battery life expectancy to switching cycles comparison table can be found under the sub-menu “Technical Data “.


Extraneous light independence

The PicoBell that recognises a “wave” or “approach” of the hand, can also be operated in full sunlight, because the clever technology can regulate light up to 150,000Lux, which equates to 1.5 times direct sunlight.



The optical system is self-calibrating. Once the PicoBell is positioned, surrounding stationary objects will be automatically calibrated out inside 10 seconds, the PicoBell can then be used as normal. Dust and other infrared light invisible “layers” are also calibrated out.
