The MIRCC8_USB is a USB Push Notification board that allows you to connect a contact closure to the board and send an email or text message when the circuit is closed. The board
will communicate the contact closure information to your computer through a USB connection. N-Button Software will then send a text or email from the computer to
your selected recipients.
MIRCC8_USB The Ideal Choice
Ideal for applications when you must know a contact closure has been activated. Connect the contact closure (no voltage) directly to the board or add this board
to any of our relay boards and use a relay on the board as the contact closure input so you're notified when your relays trigger!

USB Push Notification Setup
USB Contact Closure Push Notification
The MIRCC8_USB Push Notification board has a contact closure input and a USB interface. When the contact closure input is closed the board will send this information through the USB cable to your computer. Using N-Button software you can send a preconfigured text message or email alerting you that the contact closure has been closed.
Dry Contact Inputs
The Inputs on the Push Notification series controllers are compatible with any type of dry-contact input (no voltage). Use any contact closure input such as a button, sensor or another relay and receive an instant SMS and email messages right to your smart phone, tablet, or computer! Combine with other boards on this site for a total switching/notification package.
How It Works
The MIRCC8_USB is a contact-closure input detection circuit that automatically forwards sensor data to a network address that you specify. 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. For more information on N-Button configuration see USB N-Button Push Notification Setup.
Mounts as a COM Port
This USB board connects to the USB port of your computer and will mount as a COM port on your PC. USB Drivers will most likely be needed and can be found in the resources section to the right and will also be available in the Base Station Software.
This board is equipped with a ZUSB Module. The ZUSB communications module adds USB communications to the board. The ZUSB module is powered from the USB port of your computer and includes a 6' USB Cable. The board itself will require 12 volts of power and can be hard wired or you can purchase a "wall wart" type Power Supply at checkout.
Combine with Other Boards
Combine this board with other relays boards on the site and make this a total switching/notification package! If your applications calls for switching you can use another relay on the board as an input for the Push Notification Board and get a message sent when you switch a relay on!
Write Custom Software
IF you are a programmer you can of course write your own program using the programming language you are comfortable with This will allow our USB Push Notification board to Push data into your program where it can be parsed, logged, and evaluated according to your needs.

Attention: No Voltage Input
Please Note: Users must NEVER apply any voltage to an input on the Push Notification Board, these inputs are for Dry Contact Connections ONLY.
Push Notification Board
In this tab we'll look at the Push Notification capabilities of N-Button. The has contact closure input(s) and an interface that will communicate to you computer. When a contact closure input is closed using N-Button or a software program that you develop you can read these inputs and send an email or text message with the connected computer. Please Note: no voltage can be put into the input of this board, it will damage the board. Fully tested before they leave the production facility each board is ready to stand up to rigorous demands from heat, cold or vibration. The best test of all is the numerous boards in the field from customers all over the world in all sorts of conditions. Take it from us, these controllers will hold up!
Break-A-Way Tabs for a Smaller Design
The Push Notification Boards have a great feature where space is a premium - Break-A-Way Tabs. The Break-A-Way Tabs allow most boards to fit in an optional undrilled plastic enclosure. Snap off the Break-A-Way Tabs and you have a controller with a smaller profile when you need to fit in a tight space.
This board is manufacturered RoHS compliant with led free solder and parts.
5-Year Warranty/Money Back Guarantee
Push Notification Boards are guaranteed against manufacturing and functionality defects for a full 5 years! Not to mention a 30-day money back guarantee! If for any reason you are not happy with a board purchased from Relay Pros, simply return it within 30 days and we will give you your money back! Boards that are damaged by our customers will not of course be warranted under any circumstances.

The MIRCC8_USB and N-Button Lite make this a complete package to send a text message or email without programming knowledge. N-Button is a point-and-click software that will allow you to configure the message that is sent and who will receive it. Full support from the developer of this software means just about anyone can send a message from something as a button push to something as complex as a security system alert.
Here's a quick overview
1. Download and install N-Button Pro or N-Button Lite
2. Connect your Push Notification board with your computer
3. Run N-Button Pro/Lite to show N-Button Pro/Lite Manager
4. Add the connected Push Notification board to Devices Manager
Detailed setup information can be found in the Need More Information section below.
Here's How it Works
N-Button is the software you will use to send the text and/or email from a computer and allow you to put a button on the desktop of your computer to monitor the input(s) on the Push Notification board. The Push Notification board can be connected to the computer either from a USB cable, Ethernet or the Wi-Fi connection, which ever you choose to use. Setting up N-Button is fairly simple, setting up communications to the board, setting up the email accounts and typing out the email/text message.
Email & Test Setup
You can send a email and/or text to a selected recipients with an alert that the contact closure has been activated. A Subject and message can be sent stating exactly what contact closure has been activated. You configure the message sent.
N-Button also allows you to put a button on the desktop to monitor the contact closure. You can assign a color for either state the contact closure is in. This can be placed on the desktop of the computer for an easy way to check the status of the contact closure! This can also be done instead of sending a text message. If you don't want to send out a message but want a visual status of the contact closure simply skip the text/email portion of the setup and you will have a visual reference of the output.
Here's what you will need to set up a contact closure notification

The PWR12 is regulated power supply providing clean power necessary for
the performance of these boards. The PWR12 US power supply is a 120VAC to 12VDC 1.25A 60Hz regulated
power supply and it plugs into the barrel connector on the board. The output connector is a 2.1mm I.D. x 5.5mm
O.D. x 9.5mm R/A barrel connector.
