Nahru, who coincidently is a muslim man, talked about his idea and said,
I felt that there should be a way for people to able to ring the bell during the pandemic without touching it, so I installed this sensor. We listen to azan, so I thought clanging of bells should also be heard. It works on proximity sensor.
