NCD WiFi Push Notification devices generate a TCP/IP data packet when a change on any of the contact closure inputs is detected. Push Notification devices send data indicating the on/off status of all inputs. The inputs on this controller were designed for contact closure interface applications. Connect the inputs via screw terminals to buttons, switches, magnetic door switches, or any other contact-closure source. NCD Push Notification devices are powered from a 12VDC power supply using a 2.1mm barrel connector or a 2-position screw terminal. On-Board LEDs display communication activity and CPU Busy/Ready status.
Using this device is very easy. Simply connect to using Comm Operator (included with Base Station) or other TCP/IP data monitoring utility. Connect a button or switch between Ground and Input 1 and watch the data arrive in your terminal software. Every time the button is pressed or released, a data frame is generated that includes a byte of data representing the status of all available inputs.
Push Notification – Real Data in Real Time
Flip a switch and send a SMS Text Message. Push a Button and Send an email. Trip a sensor and send a message to a server to do just about anything you want. Log when sensors change state or control relays when switches are triggered from distant locations. Push Notification series controllers are the easiest way to send alerts to computers when a switch changes state. The Push Notification series will let you know when a door is opened, a switch is flipped, or motion is detected.
Dry Contact-Closure Inputs
The Inputs on the Push Notification series controllers are compatible with any type of switch, including momentary buttons, toggle switches, motion detectors, magnet sensors, level switches, float switches, break-beam detectors, door sensors, window sensors, glass-breakage detectors, vehicle sensors, fire detectors, gas sensors, and much more.
Push Notification for the Real World
Using float sensors, Push Notification series controllers can send you a SMS text message if water levels rise too high. Alert emergency responders if fire or gas is detected. Receive instant SMS and email notification if security sensors are triggered. Log sensor activity for scientific, accountability, or security applications. Monitor, React, and Log sensor data as soon as the sensor detects a change. Push Notification series controllers are built to help you stay connected to your world wherever you are.
Direct Wired Connection – Fast and Reliable
The Push Notification Series will let you send contact closure sensor data directly to a local computer. From there the data can be used to activate relays, log data, trigger applications, forward data and much more. Monitor your world in real time.
How It Works
NCD Push Notification series controllers use contact-closure input detection to automatically forwards sensor data to an attached computer. Push Notification controllers do not directly generate Emails or SMS text messages. Optional N-Button software or custom-developed server software is required for this functionality. The Push Notification Quick Start Guide will help you setup your Push Notification Controller for your particular application.
Combine with N-Button
We STRONGLY recommend the use of optional N-Button software in combination with the purchase of Push Notification series controllers. N-Button software is a complete automation software application capable of sending SMS and Email messages, making decisions, controlling relays, and much more. The N-Button development team has been developing automation software for our devices for many years.
N-Button is available as an optional upgrade when you add any Push Notification controller to your shopping cart. N-Button is compatible with Windows 8 or later operating systems.
Write Custom Software
You can write your own custom software to work with NCD Push Notification controllers. Our products operate using standard protocols, making software integration easy for developers. We help you eliminate the hardware development cycle by providing you with a plug and play solution.
User Configurable Bytes
Push Notification series devices allow you to customize 8 bytes in the data packet. Use these data bytes to indicate location, sensor type, or as a security id. Use our Base Station Software (free) to configure optional data bytes.
WiFi Compatibility Notes
When using a WiFi communication module, it is essential that you use the ZIGMO_PCB to configure the WiFi network settings. This device periodically sends UDP Packets on port 13,000, which help identify the IP address of this device on your network. This device sends UDP Packets to link.signalswitch.com to help users access this device from the internet (this feature can be disable). Remote access over the internet requires users to configure Port Forwarding on the router that is associated with the WiFi communications module. Port Forwarding is outside the scope of NCD technical support. Please visit PortForward.com for instructions on configuring most routers for port forwarding.
We Customize Just for You!!
NCD offers many custom IoT electronic design services to help tailor our product to your exact needs. Whether you are looking for custom firmware, circuit board modifications, metal enclosures, or industrial color printing, we can help you with a wide variety of design services.
Custom IoT Electronic Design Services Process
Most of our users purchase off-the-shelf hardware for initial testing. Once everything is working, they contact us to build a custom solution which may include specialized changes to the board, firmware, connectors, etc. Custom boards have many advantages such as reduced wiring, easy installation, small size, less power consumption, and in some cases, an overall reduction in product cost. Custom IoT Electronic Design Services will have your company name and logo on the board as well as the enclosure.
Customized IoT Electronics
NCD engineers can help build a customized solution for your particular application based on the designs you see on our website. We can combine devices onto a single board, change the shape, or even some of the components to meet your exact needs. We also provide turn-key metal enclosures with powder coating and full-color printing on the top side starting at just $500 for setup! We have more than 20 years of experience in electronics design and manufacturing. All of our products are designed and manufactured in the USA, so we are here to support the products we make. We only ask that our customers prototype their needs using our existing products before we customize.
- Custom designs should be based on our existing product because we can’t build rockets or electric cars over here!
- We do not provide customization services if it involves the introduction of a new or untested technology.
- Custom engineering fees depend on your requirements, so please contact us for a quote!
- We maintain ownership of all designs, including our customized designs as they are based on our existing Design.
- We will only ship the customized product to you or your authorized agents.
- We have an NDA available if needed.
- The turn-around time is about 2-3 weeks.
- We specialize in low-volume designs, no quantity is too small!
- We have the ability to scale to large volumes as needed.
Getting Started with Product Customization
All you have to do is contact us and we will walk you through the process from beginning to end, based on your individual needs. Some people are surprised at how fast we finish CAD design (usually a few hours), but keep in mind, we still have to build your design, which takes considerably more time. When we customize product, here are the general services we provide:
- We design the circuit board.
- We communicate with our customers throughout the customization and manufacturing process.
- We manufacture surface mount stencils and circuit boards.
- We program our pick and place machines to build your boards.
- We build a working sample and run it through our wave solder machine.
- We test your custom IoT solution.
- Once the design is finalized it won’t be possible to make changes during production (changes cost money and require us to repeat the above processes)
- Once it meets all your requirements, we will start production as needed.
- We work with our metal fabricators to design a metal enclosure if required.
- You work with our artist to print the top side of the enclosure in full color with your company logo if required.
