Have you ever seen in retail store where you can lift a product and watch its introductory video on the screen beside the product? To setup this type of learning station can't be easier with IAdea GPIO extender. This document will firstly brief the GPIO applications can be deployed in the field. With the basic understanding user can start to plan and set up the project by referencing the easy understanding instructions.
What is GPIO Extender?
Digital Input allow you to connect the IAdea players to external devices such as motion sensors, sound sensors, door detectors, buttons , alarm systems. With appropriate software setup, IAdea signage players can react to different inputs based on customer configurations. Digital Output allow you to connect IAdea players to external devices such as LED light, door control, speaker, or even another IAdea player to create fully interactive Digital Signage experience.
Digital Input and Output Applications
Kiosk is the most conventional usage for input applications. By connecting buttons or other trigger source, the signage system can star to display the requested information.
Education By connecting the alarm system, the signage system in campus can be used as emergency alert device to protect the children safety.
Hospitality By connecting the interactive buttons, the signage system in the hotel lobby will turn into a fully interactive navigator. User can check the floor plan, conference room information, store map and cuisine information on DEMAND.
Retail By connecting the motion sensor, the signage system can display different content based on the distance between customer and signage board. In the close spot, a point of purchase commercial can be displayed to attract user to grab something near to them. In the far spot, the general store discount information can be displayed. Imagine looking for a PLUG in the home depot, the category sign hang up in the air looks all similar and confusing. By connecting the button as input device and LED light as output device, customer can quickly find the correct category of what they need and be indicated by flashing LED light.
Power Saving By connecting the motion sensor, the signage system can turn on the monitor display once when user approaches. This robust the power efficiency in all kind of deployments.
Wiring is easy and simple for IAdea GPIO extender.
Wiring Input/Output cable :
- Lose the terminal block with screw driver:
- Attach the cable:
- Fasten the terminal block with screw driver:
Wiring Ground Cable:
Wiring ground cable to GPIO extender works exactly as wiring signal cable.
Please note IAdea GPIO extender is a common ground point design.
This section exhibits to users a setup example for a 2 button trigger application.
(1)Attach (-) from button to IN0 & IN1 respectively.
(2)Connect GPIO extender to IAdea player USB port before power on player.
You will be able to program content and playlists using SMIL, HTML5, Android or through software that supports GPIO interactive scheduling.
