The unique display unit "Pixie" will provide you with information from Home Technologies sensors, and all this will be complemented by beautiful pixel animations! The device integrates an LED matrix with a size of 6x24 pixels, where each is able to display more than 16 million shades of color. Together, they will create great animations that will inform you about atmospheric conditions, new mail, switching appliances and much more! Each event triggered by a sensor from the Home Technologies family has its own static image, and of course there is also an imaginative moving animation. In addition to the visual warning, the device also contains a siren, which is especially important for reporting a fault or fire, or for use as a doorbell.
We can display a number of different pieces of information:
- plain text,
- new post office,
- fire warning,
- start irrigation,
- opening / closing a garage door or a gate in a fence
- open or closed window,
- dew point,
- energy / water / gas consumption
- and lots more!
If nothing is happening right now and no event is coming from the sensors, it is possible to display a digital clock that is synchronized via the Internet, so there is no need to set anything. This feature is turned on by default, but can be easily deactivated directly in the device menu if needed. The device does not need any physical support, so it can be placed on any flat surface (table, shelf, ...) or hung on the wall, thanks to the prepared holes on the back of the box. Internet connection is simple, you can use either Ethernet LAN cable or wirelessly via WiFi. The device works with all devices from the Home Technologies family, such as the Temperature and Humidity Sensor, the Relay Actuator and the Mailbox Content Detector. However, with Home Technologies' growing portfolio, its capabilities will grow, making it an indispensable element of your smart home.
The display unit helps with the visualization of information from other sensors in the household. It will help inform about new mail in the mailbox, or about opening a garage or entrance gate in the fence. In conjunction with the bell button, it can be recommended for the deaf as a doorbell. In conjunction with the BME sensor, it can display values from the set rules on temperature, humidity and possibly pressure. In the absence of any events, the current time can be displayed or not. Comes with the clock on. Any number of sensors can be placed in the home network up to the full occupancy of IP addresses.
The device was developed and is manufactured in the Czech Republic by Czech developers.
Device is fully compatible with MARS cloud system, to which it enables sending measured data and access them from anywhere in the world. In MARS you can view retrieved data organized in own dashboard in form of digit or chart. Functionality of MARS is supported by two applications for Android devices, which serves for easy access to system, adding of new device or setup and displaying of phone notifications.
MQTT & Home Assistant
Each device in the Home Technologies family includes a built-in ability to connect to any MQTT server to display data, as well as control the device if it is an actuator. Our devices can easily connect, for example, with the popular Home Automation system Home Assistant, where communication takes place using the aforementioned MQTT protocol. For your convenience, we have prepared instructions for you on how to set everything easily. Instructions can be downloaded HERE.
