The habit of cleaning hands is one of the new habits during the current COVID-19 pandemic. One way to clean hands is with a hand sanitizer. The automatic hand sanitizer dispenser can be used to clean hands, without touching a button or any part of the appliance. Community service in this paper is carried out by making a number of automatic hand sanitizer dispensers, and distributing them in a number of places, around Campus III of Sanata Dharma University, Paingan, Maguwoharjo, Yogyakarta. A number of complaints emerged from the person in charge of the distribution site for the appliance. The most common complaint is that the appliance does not function as it should. This complaint is caused by a problem with the proximity sensor used. This sensor is too affected by light intensity. To overcome this, it is necessary to explore other types of sensors that are better than proximity sensors, which are less affected by light intensity.
