The development of IdeasX started through a windy road of senior design projects. In 2015 seniors at Temple university developed the IDEAS system which stood for Innovative Dynamic Environmental Switches (an acronym soo good it made the military jealous). The aim of the project was to provide students with sensor technology besides the basic binary switch and an intuitive method to setup the sensors. The project concluded with a four device system: sensor module, tablet / android smartphone, receiver, and the Switch Pro 6. The system utilized BLE as the wireless medium. The next year my senior design team took a hold of the project. We called it IDEAS2.0, then IDEAS2.1, and then it was going to be IDEAS3.0… You get the idea. You can see our SD page here.
