Product overview

This wireless button is used to control Luminea devices and provide wireless interaction in an SHX multisensory room for one or more users, reducing set-up and preparation time, allowing professionals to focus on stimulation and learning activities.

Pressing the button changes the color of the Luminea devices, activates the bubble tube or launches SHX content.

Two buttons at the back can be used to adjust the button’s function. Use them to choose the Luminea device you wish to control (or select the SHX mode) and the exact function (change color, sequential or random mode, or on and off).

  5. Orange
  6. White
  7. ON/OFF mode. If the Luminea device is switched off, it will switch on in Automatic mode when Button 1 is pressed. If it was on, pressing Button 1 will switch it off (pressing the button alters the state of the device).
  8. Sequential mode. Every time Button 1 is pressed, it changes the color of the Luminea device following a sequence. After it has turned white, the device will switch off. The next time the button is pressed, the device will switch back on again, beginning the sequence of colors with red.
  9. Bubble activation mode. If Button 1 has been set to control a Luminea bubble tube, the bubbles in the tube will be activated or switched off every time it is pressed. This mode has no function on other devices.
 
2) Functions in SHX rooms (S. MODE):
  • Functions 1-6: these launch the first 6 cells of the active scene in the SHX application.
  • Function 7: activates Sequential mode. When Button 1 is pressed, every cell in the active SHX scene will be activated sequentially.
  • Function 8: activates Random mode. When Button 1 is pressed, the cells in the active SHX scene will be activated randomly.
  • Function 9: activates Scanning mode. The first time Button 1 is pressed, the system will scan through the cells in the current scene. When pressed again, it will activate the cell that has been “selected” during the scan and is currently lit.

Programming examples:

  • Change the color of the Luminea fiber optic strands sequentially: Device = B — Function = 8
  • Activate or shut off the bubbles in the Luminea Tube: Device = A — Function = 9
  • Activate the color red in each of the Luminea devices:  Device = — Function = 1
  • Activate scanning in an SHX scene:  Device = S  — Function = 9
