The history books say that it was at the end of the 19th century when the famous Nikola Tesla invented the first remote control. Subsequent improvements to the prototype, and the innovations made have turned it into one of the most commonplace items in society.

The first steps in the remote control switched an appliance on or off, or kept it on standby. The military industry saw it as an interesting item, and consumer electronics adopted it for all types of electrical appliance, such as the television. Changing channel or raising and lowering the volume from the comfort of the sofa was a turning point in the everyday lives of millions of people around the world.

The industry related to the manufacture of automatic doors also saw remote controls and control accessories as something very possible. The goal was to automate the opening and closing of doors as much as possible in all types of building, such as airports, banks, apartment blocks, hotels, restaurants, office complexes or hospitals.
