What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

The PixelTwenty MotiAlert detects motion, sounds a piercing siren, and immediately sends you an email and/or text alert. Put one or more in your garage, home and business. Set up instant email notifications on your smartphone to receive the email alert right away. Conveniently arm and disarm using a small keychain remote. There is also a silent option available in setup where you can send the alerts without sounding the siren. It just doesn't get any better than this for a simple security device to let you know something is up.

If email alerts are not sufficient (or if you want text alerts too), text alerts are available by a monthly subscription through PayPal. You can cancel the subscription at any time. Up to 2 devices and 10 texts each per day is $4 monthly. One device and up to 50 texts per day is $10 monthly. 

The MotiAlert connects to the internet through your wireless router to send the alerts, so a 2.5GHz 802.11 b/g/n or dual band AC WiFi router in range and connected to the internet is required for alerts. A power outlet is also required. Place the MotiAlert in an area shielded from sun, wind and rain. This can be indoors, in your home or business, or in your garage or shed for example. You can secure the device to a wall using either the provided removable mounting strips or four screws.

When the MotiAlert detects motion, it sends an alert, the LED flashes, and the siren sounds for five minutes. If the MotiAlert cannot connect to your WiFi router or to the internet through your WiFi router, it will still flash the LED and sound the siren.

Properties are configured by putting the device in setup mode with a pushbutton, connecting to it using any WiFi enabled device (PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet), and bringing up a web browser where the setup page can be accessed and the properties saved.

  

Risks and challenges

The MotiAlert has been tested for several months now and is functioning beautifully. Just the FCC certification remains. If this project is funded and the FCC certification then passes, this project will run to successful completion.
