itouchless DZT13 Trash Can User Manual



The touchless sensor operation promotes a germ-free environment. The Activated Carbon Deodorizer neutralizes odors. The lid sensor uses invisible and harmless, patented infrared technology for accurate and responsive lid open and close operation. There are two buttons on the front of the lid, “OPEN” and “CLOSE”, to open and close the lid manually, and an ON/OFF power switch on the back of the trash can lid. The infrared sensor on the lid will automatically open the lid when your hand or object is within 6 inches/10 cm of the sensor. The lid will remain open if the sensor detects any object within its radius and will automatically close in 4 seconds after the object is withdrawn.
