IoTrix is an App that a individual can use to make a smart Advertisement board . The major objective of this project was to make a smart advertisement board that is power efficient and user friendly to control . Nowadays this outdoor led board's are very common . The Software is predefined and a person can't control it afterwards . I wanted to make an easy to program led board with the help of smart Phone . With Iotrix app we can not only send message but we could send multiple different combinations of message . For example: we can have a counter + Date +Scrolling Message + some double row message .
This was my first prototype PCB with arduino nano ,esp8266-01 ,RTC ,2 Power Mosfet and some connectors .
Due to Code complexity ,lack of ram and flash memory i later switch to arduino mega ,With arduino mega now i can have a custom animation of 8 widgets from the app. From temperature to Time ,date,day and custom message .it offers a lot now.
In this , i have to de-solder the arduino nano and add jumpers to arduino mega .This was the only change i have to make it .
The Flow chart below shows the detail on how the electronics are assembled in this box .
NOTE: The SMPS is a dual voltage smps 12v for led strips and fan and 5v for arduino mega ,esp8266 , P10 LED Matrix ,and sensors .
The P10 Led Matrix are amazing .Great for outdoor application and are cheaper in cost too .
Smart Ad features
LED Matrix Features:
- 1. Single screen Blink mode
- 2. Double screen Blink mode
- 3. Simple Message mode
- 4. Scrolling Message mode
- 5. Split Display mode
- 6. Temperature mode
- 7. Counter mode
- 8. Easy Brightness control
- 9. Three Mode Display control
- 10. Switch on/off display
- 11. Control the Display size from 32*16 to 64*64.
The sending of dynamic messages on the LED matrix with an app has never been done. This make IoTrix stand out in the crowd. The only thing I could not achieve was sending GIF images on the LED matrix.
Not only can you control the LED matrix but you can also control the LED strips.
LED Strip Features:
1. Two Led strip's Control.
2. Blink Mode
3. Fade Mode
4. Alternate Light Mode
5. Brightness Mode
6. Speed Control
I have make sure the IoTrix connect to the smart advertisement board seamlessly.The Led board can be connected in two modes either in Local mode or it can connect to router .
Note:This App has a filter in it .So it will work only with ESP8266 only. If you'd like to support the app with RPi or any other device, let me know. I will make sure the app works on other devices too.
This is also my First android app on the playstore :)
