The EnxRoom.enableProximitySensor() enables the Camera to detect the proximity. On most devices, the Proximity Sensor is implemented as a boolean-sensor.

  • It returns just two values NEAR or FAR.
  • Thresholding is done on the LUX value i.e. the LUX value of the light sensor is compared with a threshold.
  • A LUX-value more than the threshold means the Proximity Sensor returns FAR.
  • Anything less than the threshold value, the sensor returns NEAR

Class: EnxRoom

Method: public void enableProximitySensor(boolean status)


status – Boolean. Set to true to enable and false to disable Proximity Sensor.

EnxRoom.enableProximitySensor(true); // To enable
EnxRoom.enableProximitySensor(false); / To disable
