GFSK90 ISM Radio Demo



GFSK90 ISM Radio / Programmable Controller 
LPD 433/915MHz ISM bands
Radio is compliant with the specifications regulated and required by FCC Part 15 and 18.

Description

The GFSK90 is a small scale, low cost wireless ISM transceiver module. The low receive sensitivity (–118dBm) coupled with industry leading +20dBm output power ensures extended range and improved link performance. Built-in antenna diversity and support for frequency hopping can be used to further extend range and enhance performance.

Genie Switch Cube Mobile Accessibility


Genie Master Cube 
Mobile accessibility for the disabled


Can you imagine controlling your home with smart device technology? 

"Mobile accessibility" in general terms is the art of making products, and web driven applications more usable to people with disabilities. Considering the advent of smart devices in the 21st Century there is truly no reason why the embedded device revolution should not revolutionize the way we designers build our products. Just a few weeks ago I began to think about how living with limited mobility does preset daily challenges in performing the basic tasks you and I take for granted. For this reason I have designed and developed the Genie Master Cube to be Mobile accessible. What this means is those things which normally require a fairly high level of manual dexterity may be reduced to a simple push of a button or a voice actuated command. For instance consider an elderly person who has an advanced arthritis. This condition may make it practically impossible to rotate a switch mechanism. When using smart device accessibility technology, this task now becomes much more manageable via a simple press of a button or voice activated command.

 As smart device technology of the 21st century improves, we should be designing more embedded devices which make our lives more manageable. When I think of scalability and manageability of our homes using smart technology, I will not be satisfied personally until all appliances in my home are completely interactive and accessible via the World Wide Web. The Genie Master Controller is just the kind of evolutionary embedded device that can help make this dream a reality. 

So Whats next on the horizon? iOS?

Time scheduling features which will revolutionize the way you interact and manage your home. Planning that next great getaway? Well don't worry everyone will think someones at home.

GFSK90 915MHz ISM Radio


GFSK90 915-MHz ISM Radio 
902-928 MHz Programmable Radio


GFSK90 915MHz ISM Radio module designed for Industrial, Scientific, Medical and Home automation communications. This low cost communication module supports frequency-hopping spread-spectrum (FHSS) and supports wireless remote control, automated meter reading (metering) and sensing applications.


The 915-MHz ISM Band (902-928 MHz) is assigned to Industrial, Scientific, and Medical research and development in the US. According to FCC Part 15 there are no restrictions to the application or the duty cycle and affords for higher EIRP wave transmissions. Given the lack restrictions combined with higher transmissions power this band has become very popular for unlicensed short range applications which now include highway toll center monitoring, automated meter reading (metering), weather data collection systems, Home Automation, and industrial sensing/monitoring applications.

The GFSK90 ISM Radio shown in the image above is our RS485 enabled version which supports master, slave device addressability and supports 2 Analog, 2 Digital IOs or 1 Analog and 1 Digital IO.   

FCC Section 15.249

FCC section 15.249 allows 50 mV/m of electrical field strength at 3 meters distance in the frequency band of 902-928 MHz. This corresponds to an EIRP of -1.23 dBm.

Genie Switch Cube
Home Automation Supervisory Control
Genie Switch Cube (Home Automation Device) enables the end user (consumer) addressable end point control of common household loads such as Lamps, Holiday lighting, as well as low level environmental control. Current capabilities include activation and deactivation of two 110VAC switchable loads up to 4 Amps max (2A / port). Features include addressable switching, temperature sensing (with Genie Master Controller), and supervisory control of common household illumination devices.

Additional features provided by Genie Master Controller WiFi enabled client interface is necessary to manage loads in real time utilizing RTC (Real Time Clock) and web browser based event scheduler. The Master controller also implements Cube management and control features which enable each control end point to transmit and receive status updates as well as serve real time notification services to an internet enabled monitoring and scheduling service. The basic service will be offered with all Genie Master Controllers and may then be expanded to include a feature rich subscription service.

The worlds smallest (22nm Dual Core) functional PC meet Edison. I am very glad to learn it supports Linux and has a built in TCP/IP Stack, Wifi and Bluetooth hardware. I can clearly see a completely new generation of monitoring devices or even a Star Trek communicator in our future. Would be a great device for transactional identification and processing mainly used as a personal security device.
