In recent years, a new disease emerged and took the world by storm. The COVID-19 pandemic forced everyone to change their lifestyles. Necessary measures were taken to curb its spread. An example of such a measure, in Indonesia was the replacement of pushbuttons in elevators with proximity sensors. Nevertheless, due to its public nature, it was observed that eventually these sensors came into direct contact with a lot of individuals, and thus it became the very thing it was meant to prevent. In this research, a miniature elevator was constructed. It was designed to be accessible to individual smartphones via mobile Wi-Fi. It is hoped that this could further limit contact only to personal smartphones. As an additional feature, the device was also designed to be capable of energy recovery to raise environmental awareness during the global focus on the pandemic. It was calculated and measured that energy recovery up to 75% was possible.
