I will be your personal guide to help you get started. I'm a model 5 of the Handyman's Robotics and Unit Repair System. But, you can call me "HandUnit".
— HandUnit, introducing itself on Night 1.

The Handyman's Robotics and Unit Repair System Model 5, also known as HandUnit for short, is an AI voice recording in Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location designed to help new technicians at Circus Baby's Entertainment and Rental get accustomed to the tasks required of them. It gives Eggs Benedict instructions in all nights (except Night 4).


HandUnit has various functions it can perform, such as opening and closing various maintenance hatches throughout the facility and internal systems repairs. It is also capable of performing other superfluous functions such as a customizable voice setting and the ability to play music at the user's request. It also seems fully aware of the significant risk of death involved with the player's job, and will make several humorously dark comments about it as well as the player's willingness to keep coming back to it.

The HandUnit is also shown to give unhelpful instructions when it comes to the player's survival, such as insisting that they proceed through the Ballora Gallery extremely quickly to avoid disturbing Ballora, when in reality doing so would disturb her and cause her to attack while moving slowly and quietly would not. It also disregards most abnormalities, seemingly not noticing them, such as Ballora's body parts being carried by the Minireenas and the two hanged technicians in the Ballora Gallery and Funtime Auditorium.


  • For some reason, the HandUnit's keypad does not have the full alphabet, missing the letter B, and also lacks numbers.
    • Ironically, this makes it impossible for the player to type Eggs Benedict, Casual Bongos, and Exotic Butters. This could be due to the autocorrect error.
  • HandUnit will often ask the player to enter something into its keypad interface, however, this will always fail due to the glitchy screen. HandUnit will autocorrect them in a humorous manner.
    • On Night 1, the protagonist's name will be autocorrected to "Eggs Benedict".
    • On Night 2, the voice the player wants HandUnit to use will be autocorrected to "Angsty Teen". This is not kept long, as it malfunctions.
    • On Night 3, the music the player wants to hear will be autocorrected to "Casual Bongos".
    • On Night 5, the gift the player wants to receive will be autocorrected to "Exotic Butters".
      • Also, there is a white sticker printed under HandUnit's eyes which reads "Mike".
        • HandUnit's words "Please enter your name as seen above the keypad." while encouraging Eggs Benedict to type his name.
  • On Night 2, Baby mentions HandUnit as "he", presumably implying that it is male, despite being a computer system.
    • HandUnit's voice provider is also male.
    • Oddly, in The Freddy Files, HandUnit is randomly referred to both "he" and "it" throughout the chapter for Sister Location.
  • At the beginning of Night 5, the HandUnit states that there are two technicians currently working. When it says to check Ballora and Funtime Foxy, the technicians are seen hanging from the ceiling where the animatronics should be. The HandUnit, however, will mistake them for the animatronics as being on their stages.
  • When the player reaches a certain point of Ballora Gallery, an area requiring the player to be quiet, the HandUnit will annoyingly inform them that they are taking a long time and urge them to hurry using a loud voice. This message is inevitable and will be said regardless how much time the player has spent on their way to the Breaker Room.
    • It is unknown why the animatronics can not seem to hear HandUnit talking to the player, as its voice is clearly loud.
      • It may be because it is being said through the entire facility, instead of through the device alone. This would thus not draw animatronics to a specific location.
  • HandUnit seemingly replaces Phone Guy from the original games.
    • It sometimes ignores the danger that the player is in or disregards any abnormalities, much like Phone Guy.
  • HandUnit is often replaced by Circus Baby's voice, who tells the player not to follow the HandUnit's instructions.
  • HandUnit does not speak in Night 4, as the player does not start the night via the Elevator.
  • Although HandUnit has given the player the autocorrected name, it is not used throughout the week.
  • The open and close animations of HandUnit are identical to those of the Monitor.


Night 1

The following information contains spoilers. To view them, click the [show] tag.

Welcome to the first day of your exciting new career! Whether you were approached at a job fair, read our ad in Screws, bolts, and hairpins, or if this is the result of a dare, we welcome you. I will be your personal guide to help you get started. I'm a model 5 of the Handyman's Robotics and Unit Repair System. But, you can call me "Hand-Unit". Your new career promises challenge, intrigue, and endless janitorial opportunities. Please enter your name as seen above the keypad. This cannot be changed later, so, please be careful.
It seems that you had some trouble with the keypad. I see what you were trying to type, and I will autocorrect it for you. One moment. Welcome Eggs Benedict!
You can now open the elevator using that bright, red, and obvious button. Let's get to work!
Allow me to fill this somewhat frightening silence with some lighthearted banter. Due to the massive success, and, even more so, the unfortunate closing of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, it was clear that the stage was set (no pun intended) for another contender in children's entertainment. Unlike most entertainment venues, our robotic entertainers are rented out for private parties during the day, and it's your job to get the robots back in proper working order before the following morning.
You are now in the primary Control Module; it's actually a crawlspace between the two front showrooms. Now, let's get started with your daily tasks. View the window to your left. This is the Ballora Gallery: Party Room and Dance Studio, encouraging kids to get fit and enjoy pizza! Let's turn on the light and see if Ballora is onstage. Press the blue button on the elevated keypad to your left.
Uh oh! It looks like Ballora doesn't feel like dancing. Let's give her some motivation. Press the red button now to administer a controlled shock. Maybe that will put the spring back in her step.
Let's check the light again.
Excellent. Ballora's feeling like her old self again and will be ready to perform again tomorrow. Now, view the window to your right. This is the funtime auditorium where Funtime Foxy encourages kids to play and share. Try the light! Let's see what Funtime Foxy is up to.
Looks like Funtime Foxy is taking the day off. Let's motivate Funtime Foxy with a controlled shock.
Let's try another controlled shock.
Looks like Funtime Foxy is in perfect working order. Great job! In front of you is another vent shaft. Crawl through it to reach the Circus Gallery Control Module.
On the other side of the glass is Circus Baby's auditorium. Let's check the light and see what Baby is up to.
Looks like a few of the lights are out, but we can fix that later. Let's encourage Baby to cheer up with a controlled shock.
Let's try another controlled shock.
Great job, Circus Baby. We knew we could count on you! That concludes your duties for your first night on the job. We don't want you to leave overwhelmed; otherwise, you might not come back. Please leave using the vent behind you, and we'll see you again tomorrow.

Night 2

The following information contains spoilers. To view them, click the [show] tag.

Welcome back to another night of intellectual stimulation, pivotal career choices, and self-reflection on past mistakes. We're committed to creating a unique and fulfilling work experience. One part of that commitment is ensuring that you don't get tired of the voice that you're hearing right now. Using the keypad below, please select a new companion voice. For male, press 1. For female, press 2. For text only, press 3. For other options, press 4.
It seems that you had some trouble with the keypad. I see what you were trying to type, and I will autocorrect it for you. Thank you for choosing Angsty Teen.

Angsty teen: The elevator's stopped. You know the routine. Get out now, or whatever. Stay here if you want.

So, funny story, a dead body was found in this vent once. M'kay, so, not that funny, but, it's a story.
— Angsty Teen
Alright, so, let's start with your nightly chores. You should check on Ballora, and make sure she's on her stage, but, whatever.
— Angsty Teen
I guess Ballora has better things to do. Let's zap her! That should be fun.
— Angsty Teen
Let's check on Funtime Foxy, make sure he's ready for showtime tomorrow.
— Angsty Teen
Great... Great... Great...
— Angsty Teen
There seems to have been a problem with the voice synthesizer. Default settings have been restored. Please proceed through the vent ahead of you to Circus Baby's Auditorium.
Circus Baby had a busy day today. Let's check the light and make sure she's in proper working order.
Oh, Circus Baby! We aren't here to play hide and seek. Let's encourage Baby to come out of hiding with a controlled shock.
Let's try another controlled shock.
There seems to be a power malfunction that is affecting our ability to properly motivate Baby. Please stand by while I reboot the system. I will be offline momentarily during this process. Various other systems may be offline as well, such as security doors, vent locks, and oxygen. Commencing system restart.
You will now be required to crawl through the Ballora gallery using the vent to your left to reach the breaker room. It is recommended that you stay low to the ground, and reach the other side as fast as possible, as to not disturb Ballora. I will deactivate myself momentarily, as to not create an auditory disturbance. Deactivating...
(extremely loud) It seems you are taking a long time. Please proceed as quickly and as quietly as possible.
You may now interface with the breaker control box. Using the interface may disrupt nearby electronics. If you feel that you are in danger, feel free to disconnect the interface temporarily, until it is safe to reconnect.
Great job. This completes your tasks for the night. Please proceed back through the Ballora gallery with care, and we'll see you back here tomorrow.
