An automatic hand sanitizer dispenser that can automatically turn ON to dispense alcohol-based sanitizer on sensing infra-red rays from the hand was constructed with the help of passive infra-red sensor, solenoid, and nozzle. This was powered by a 9v battery in a way that it does not need to be triggered manually but to just place the hand near the bottle to automatically turn ON the circuit to dispense the sanitizer. This was workable when tested and had a dispensing time of one seconds (1s). This was made to be contactless and sensor-activated in order to avoid the spread of the virus from one person to another and it was found to be suitable for homes, schools, churches, hospitals and various workplaces. KEYWORDS: Automatic, Alcohol-based, dispenser, sensor-activated, passive-infrared sensor.
