HoverTap™ Lift and Swipe:
A touchless interface for the Elevator

The Future of Vertical Transportation

Touch-free | Practical | Add-on

HoverTap™ (patent pending) is a new way to touchlessly and safely use elevators.  HoverTap Lift and Swipe offer the complete solution in providing a simple and intuitive interface designed for the everyday user. HoverTap panel allows for simple hand-wave and finger-point interactions – getting you to your destination without a single touch. Powered by best-in-class AI and electric field sensing technology, HoverTap eliminates high-touch surfaces in the elevator and keeps you and your loved ones safe.

Touchless Interactions for the Everyday User

  • HoverTap’s sensing technology was developed for the sterile Operating Room – we’ve evolved it to create a sensor that allows existing buttons and screens to be used completely touch-free.
  • Designed for the everyday user: HoverTap enables two very simple touchless interactions – a finger-tap and a hand wave/swipe
  • No privacy concern: No cameras involved – HoverTap’s sensors only detect a user’s point-and-tap gestures.
  • Works through plastic: HoverTap’s sensors work through plastic sheets that may be placed for public health measures.

Seamless Installation

  • HoverTap is directly connect, in parallel, to the existing elevator buttons. Both HoverTap and the existing buttons can be used at the same time with zero interference.
  • HoverTap operates at low voltages – it is safety-certified and read to operate off existing elevator power supplies.
