At airfy, we want to help you make your life and environment smarter. airfy Beacon is one step on the road to this world.
We want to put the power to automate in the hands of the people who will make the most of it - not those with the money to build an automated home that does everything they want, but those with the passion, imagination and creativity to make their home do what they need.
At the heart of the airfy Beacon is a tiny super low power micro-computer. The arm m-zero core has 31 gpios, of which we expose 12 on easily accessible standard headers, for the maker community with love. Attaching your own peripherals and powering them from our unregulated 3Volts rail should be easy as pie. The popular NRF51822 by Nordic Semiconductor runs 32bit open source operating systems such FreeRTOS or RIOT, which we even support to some extend in our development forums. We chose the bigger 256kB flash to give you plenty room for your own IoT applications.
