Off Door Handle Concept Turns Everything Off As You Head Out

 |  |  |  |  |  December 13, 2011


Have you ever tried leaving your house or apartment, only to go back after walking a few blocks because you’ve got that nagging feeling that you might have forgotten to turn something off?

Off

I’m not talking about leaving the computer or television on (although both cases still aren’t ideal.) I’m talking about leaving the power and gas on in your home – which could lead to dangerous and life-threatening circumstances if you plan on being away for an extended amount of time.

So to prevent all that, Eun Ah Kim, Jinhyuk Rho and Maria Rho came up with Off, the door handle that’s connected to your mains like gas supply and electricity. I mean, how can you forget to switch it off when the switches are just on your door handle, which is most probably the last thing inside your house that you’ll touch?

Off

There are three functions on the Off handle. You can choose to turn off just your lights, just the gas, or turn everything off. Just rotate the dial to the function, push the button, and leave your home. Quick, easy, simple, and safe.

Of course, this won’t work if you need to keep your heat and water heater running in the winter time, and there’s no mention of how it would start all your pilot lights back up when gas is reactivated.
