Most hand dryers use a sensor to detect the presence of hands to operate, this can be using a PIR sensor or proximity sensors (as per Dyson Airblade V). Button operated hand dryers are available, although not as common. They are particularly useful for hair dryer hand dryers, for when you want a set time of operation or for users with prosthetic limbs. If you are experiencing issues with dryers turning on by themselves, it could be that the sensor is picking up a reflection in the bathroom, from a surface or reflective clothing.
