MicroBot Push: the wireless robotic button pusher
MicroBot Push is the wireless robotic button pusher
MicroBot Push is the wireless robotic button pusher; it physically presses buttons and switches wirelessly. Users can control a MicroBot with a smartphone and/or through a companion hub called Prota. It’s designed to work on all kinds of buttons and switches, which makes it possible to turn any old home appliances into connected smart devices that are controllable from anywhere anytime, even automatically.
** PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME FEATURES INCLUDING INTERNET CONNECTIVITY AND AUTOMATION MUST REQUIRE PROTA **
Easy to Install
A MicroBot can be easily attached anywhere with an enclosed double-sided adhesive tape. Operating on batteries, a MicroBot works wirelessly with no external power source up to 1 year.
Adapts on any kind of button
You can place your MicroBot on any kind of button, physical or capacitive (like a smartphone screen). Tap and hold on a virtual button on your screen – MicroBot will imitate the same holding duration remotely
A dedicated app is available on iOS and Android, which can directly control your nearby MicroBots.
Works better with Prota Smart Hub
Advanced features & remote access from anywhere
MicroBots are designed to be used with the smart hub Prota S, which allows you to remotely control an unlimited number of MicroBot Push and integrate them into automation stories that you can easily set up in few steps. With Cloud Access, you can safely trigger or monitor all your connected devices remotely, on your smartphone or desktop, from anywhere you want.
Wide compatibility on smart devices
Prota S is compatible with a wide range of smart devices and web services. Connect it with Philips Hue, Belkin Wemo, August smart lock, or any other smart device compatible with IFTTT.
Prota encrypts the BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) connection with your MicroBots to ensure that no-one can trigger them without your consent, while safely storing all your data locally.
Work on any surface
Use moldable glue, Sugru to attach and use MicroBot Push on any surface. When moldable glue turns into rubber, it will assure enough support for MicroBot to push even the hardest buttons.
* Moldable glue is not included in box.
Attach on buttons where it is difficult to reach
Reduce the physical separation between you and that button! Use MicroBots to start a project that hangs a few meters above your head, or even to restart a home server that would otherwise be miles away.
Connect things that you bought before
Most of your appliances are still great at doing tasks that they were designed to do, even if they are not smart. Upgrade your beloved coffee makers, washers, or fans with MicroBot Push. Control their features remotely and automate.
