Aside from the SAMA5D3 MPU, key hardware features include:
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (AP or client mode)
- 868MHz RF transceiver module FSK modulation
- One USB host port
- Three filtered inputs (24V max)
- Two opto isolated outputs (open drain)
- Relay output
- Tamper switch
- MEMS sensors: temperature/humidity, barometer, three-axis accelerometer
- On board buzzer
- LiPo 1C battery charger
- 9-24V DC input power supply
- 6 expansion connectors for additional modules: UMTS, XBee, MBus radio, RS232, RS485, RS422, NFC/RFID, audio, industrial I/O, A/D converter, custom modules (UART / I2C / SPI)
“Other automation systems connect remote devices [via] wires or WiFi connection,” an Open Yooquik rep explained on the product’s official page.
“[However], we have chosen a different way: the main controller behaves as an access point or as a WiFi client connected to your home network, whereas all remote devices are connected to the main controller with a RF radio. About 700 meters are covered without repeaters.”
On the software-server side, the Yooquik crew has deployed Node.js, while the RF modules arrive preloaded with firmware to facilitate a true plug-and-play experience. Yooquik also offers easy access to cloud, allowing users to manage multiple devices with a simple API.
