A highly accurate motion detector confirms when a door handle is used and starts a disinfection cycle. When a person approaches the door handle, the Anti-Germ Dome will detect the presence of a human hand and pause the disinfection cycle already in progress.
The Anti-Germ Dome has undergone rigorous tests throughout the development cycle to ensure that it can consistently kill germs in concentrations far greater than those found in most environments. This ensures that the AGD is equipped to handle worst-case scenarios such as C. difficile spores at laboratory-level concentrations.View our Germ Kill Test Results
While the Anti-Germ Dome cannot guarantee 100% of germs will be killed, it does kill a very substantial percentage of the germs and severely damages the rest. Remember, it only takes a small amount of UVC light to damage germ cells to the point they cannot reproduce. Either way, dead or damaged the net result is you don't get sick.
UVC light can be mildly harmful to humans if contacted for an elongated period of time from a very short distance. The Anti-Germ Dome has a built in motion sensor that will turns the LEDs off when it detects motion within 12 inches. This is a built in safety feature that keeps you safe from any possibility of adverse effects.
When fully charged your Anti-Germ Dome should provide approximately 720 cleaning cycles before needing to be recharged. When the AGD detects that a door handle has been used, it completes a one minute cycle to fully sanitize the door handle.
The Anti-Germ Dome is a self-cleaning device that does not require regular cleaning. Do not use disinfects or chemical elements of any kind to attempt to clean the UVCs, as this can compromise their effectiveness. If necessary, you can wipe the Anti-Germ Dome with a dry rag, but be sure to avoid touching the UVC LEDs.
