Proximity Scanner

Perfect for all your automated door needs!

Proximity Scanner is a wiring object that can be crafted using the Wiring Station. It triggers a signal when it detects an entity within its immediate area.

Door Automation

A common use for proximity sensors is to automate door opening and closing for the convenience of players. Note that, due to limitations in Starbound AI, NPCs are not capable of path-finding through closed doors that have anything attached to an input slot. This is the case even when the input wiring source a proximity sensor next to the door. NPCs will path-find through such doors when they happen to be open, but once the door closes, the NPC will be trapped on one side of the door, unless and until the door happens to open again, for example, by a player using the door, or an NPC randomly wandering near the sensor.
