Mini-BEE Home Automation AdaptorHome automation and robotic control made easy
The simplest way to get started in home automation.





    Simply connect the Mini-BEE to any free USB port to give immediate access to 14 high voltage switches (up to 50v).   With in-built protection diodes the Mini-BEE's 14 high voltage switches can directly connect to a wide range of devices including Electric Motors,  Relays,  Lamps.....In fact anything that can be operated by a simple DC electronic switch.
    Supplied with the Mini-BEE is BeeStep14 control software.  This is a full editing suite for creating your own switch sequencer programs.  Simply enter your pattern of On/Offs and the duration of each step for up to 10,000 steps followed by RUN to  watch your connected devices respond according to your programmed sequence. No computer programming knowledge is required.
      Mini-BEE is designed to be simple to use even for the complete beginner with full instructions on how to connect devices and create your switch sequences. A standard USB lead (not included) is needed to connect the Mini-BEE to your computer .
   For the more advanced user who wants to write his own programs for the MiniBee a DLL is provided, greatly simplifying the process. This DLL allows user programs written in a wide range of languages (eg C, C++ and Visual Basic), to have easy access to it's facilities. This gives the programmer simple to use functions like InitMbee() and SetOutputs(outputs) rather than having to address the tricky USB comms protocols.
