board is equipped with a ZBT Module. The ZBT communications module adds Bluetooth communications to the board. There are two module options available, for
more on each module see Bluetooth Module Options The ZBT module is
powered from the board. The board itself will require 12 volts of power and can be hard wired or you can purchase a "wall wart" type power supply.
Configuration is easy with the
optional Bluetooth ZigMo Modem. Simply connect it to the USB port of your computer with the supplied cable. The Bluetooth ZigMo is available as an
option when you purchase your Bluetooth controller. The ZBT module will pull off the board and can be installed in the ZigMo for configuration. You can
then configure the baud rate and password settings if you require a secure wireless control. After configuration the ZBT module can be re-installed in your
board and it's ready to pair with your device.
For computer users Base Station Software is available at no charge to get you up and running fast (more on Base Station below). Once powered up, the controller
waits for a command. A command consists of a few bytes of data in numerical format (ProXR Enhanced Command Set) usually between 2 and 6 bytes. Once the command has been received,
the controller processes the command, and sends you back ASCII character code 85 to signal the completion of your command. If a command was sent to read the status of the relay
the status is sent back.
Android App Available
For Android users a free app is available for your phone or tablet and can be downloaded from the Google Play.

Bluetooth on Apple Computers
Communicating to to this board on a Mac is possible, although it can be a bit tricky. The Bluetooth Mac Terminal video below shows the steps to establish
Bluetooth communication and controlling the relay on a Mac.
Bluetooth on iPhone or iPad
Unfortunately the iPhone and iPad are a different matter. Apple encrypts the Bluetooth signal on an Iphone and iPad
and therefore this board will not communicate with the iPhone or iPad. We recommend the Web-i browser based interface for the iPhone or iPad users.
board is led free and RoHS Compliant. If your requirements are for RoHS compliant parts this board is manufactured with RoHS compliant
led free parts and solder.
