Relays are little gadgets sporting bright and colorful 2.8" LCD screens that you can put on your desk, outside your front door, or anywhere else you care to hang up. They connect to WiFi and are good at doing a couple of things well:
Displaying Text: The original idea for Relay was a small wifi-connected display you could hang next to your doorbell and tell people things like not ringing the door at certain times because a baby was sleeping, where to leave any packages, when you'll be back, etc. But you can also put Relays anywhere inside or outside the home and office, wherever there's a message you might want to communicate with people, and which you might want to easily change. More fun than sticking up Post-It notes everywhere!
Displaying Images (Pictures): Not just text! Show any pictures you want too! As they say, a picture can be worth a thousand words. Maybe you just want to wish the mailman a Happy Thanksgiving with a beautiful horn of plenty, or show the neighbors the latest cute addition to your family. Whatever it is, Relay can show it! Just upload the pictures you want to display into your web interface, assign them to the Relay device you want to show them on, and you're all set!
Relays are controlled via a simple web interface. You login to our website, register your Relay devices there, and can then control all your Relay devices from anywhere on the planet. With a few mouseclicks you can set any of your Relays to display messages (text) or pictures of your choosing. Your Relays check in with our servers every 5 minutes to see if they need to update what they're displaying, so within a few minutes your latest messages/images will be live!
Relay is powered by a microusb power supply, similar to the one used on most phones. A microusb power supply is included with all Relay packages (110V with a US plug for USA orders 220-240V with an EU plug for all others), in a color matching that of the Relay; any other microusb power supply (capable of at least 0.2A in output current) would alternatively also work. The included power cord is approximately 3 feet (0.91m) long. You can also use any other cable you wish if your power outlet happens to be further away than 3 feet from where you'd like to mount your Relay.
Relay is available in two models - desk and wall-mounted. They function exactly the same. The only difference is that the wall versions have a couple of mounting holes in the case which allows them to be easily attached to walls. They also ship with a couple of mounting screws to fit those holes. The desk versions have no such mounting holes. You can see some pictures of the wall and desk versions on this website to compare.
