SHX Proximity is a new form of interaction in a multisensory room that allows the user to interact with the room using real objects that modify the environment and convert the whole room into a thematic environment directly related to that object.

By bringing cards or stickers to the SHX Proximity reader, you can activate contents prepared with the SHX application and control the elements of the multi-sensory room or create enveloping effects that will flood the room to create personalized, immersive and unique experiences.

The device consists of the following elements:

STEP 1.

Connect the SHX Proximity reader to the USB port of the computer where the SHX application is installed.

STEP 2.

Locate the SHX Proximity reader in an appropriate place in the room.

Bring the cards or stickers closer to the SHX Proximity reader to activate cells or scenes programmed with the SHX application.

18 programmable cards and 18 stickers are supplied with the product. By programming the cards or stickers you can associate them with any cell you have created with the SHX software. You can also make a scene you want to work with.

You can customize the cards by putting a label or pictogram that facilitates its function.

The stickers and cards can be attached to any object that is related to the content or the element of the room you want to activate.

Cards which are supplied with the equipment, have already programmed functions:

  • Cards to increase or decrease the volume of the computer.

  • Card to turn off the elements of the multisensory room.

  • (random card) This card allows you to activate a cell of the current scene in a random way.

  • (sequential card) Each time you zoom in on the card, the cells of the current scene will be activated sequentially.

  • (cards 1 to 6) These cards allow you to directly access the first 6 cells of the current scene.

18 programmable cards and 18 stickers are supplied with the product.
By programming the cards or stickers you can associate them with any cell you have created with the SHX software.
You can also make active a scene you want to work with.

1. Can I stick the stickers to metal objects?

It is not advisable because it could interfere with the RF signal

 

2. How many times can I overwrite a card or sticker?

You can record as many times as you want.

The cards programmed with special functions that are supplied with the equipment, are protected and cannot be reprogrammed.

 

3. How far do I have to put the card closer so that the SHX Proximity device reads it?

The cards must be less than 5cm far, for the reader to recognize them.

1. SHX Proximity does not recognize the cards or stickers

  • Check if the Proximity USB connection is correct. Check if the cable is in good condition.
  • Check if the computer is recognizing Proximity correctly. To do this go to Windows “Device Manager” and check if Proximity appears as a game device:

In case device is not being detected, try connecting the Proximity to a different USB port. If the issue persists, try restarting the PC.

  • Open the SHX application.
  • Activate from the computer the cell that is associated with the card you are testing and verify if the associated content is being activated.
  • Check if the blue light on the bottom of the Proximity lights up when the card is moved closer.
  • If the contents of the card that you had previously tested are not played when you zoom in, try reprogramming the card, and try again.

2. When a card or sticker is placed close to the reader, a Windows sound is played

It’s possible to eliminate the card detection warning sound generated by Windows on the sound settings:
