Smart Sign Product Image


A hand-held transmitter sends a digital code to the SMART Sign receiver. Any receiver within range will receive and decode this transmission.

If the signal is valid, the receiver enters a timed active mode and carries out the command. Once complete, the receiver goes to ‘sleep’ and waits further command.

The sleeping receiver only draws about 1/4 of current of a single LED.

Two integrated 7-amp hour batteries supply the receiver and motor power, which in turn are charged by a solar panel.

The tiny current draw allows the batteries and solar panel to be so small, a 14 watt solar panel keeps the batteries charged throughout the year, eliminating the requirement for mains supply or service visits.
