Modes of operation

On the software side Firefly has robust control system. Every array can be controlled via WiFi and PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android app. There are several modes of operation – auto mode (preset mode) and manual mode. In auto mode there are more than 40 presets available.  The user can select between presets, edit and save them and also to create a favorites list. Manual mode gives the user full control and allows to create custom preset by controling the following parameters:

  • sensors sensitivity
  • sensors trigger point
  • start color ( when no object is detected)
  • end color (when object is at closest range)
  • light rising speed
  • light falling speed
  • blinking mode
  • blinking frequency
  • random colors
  • low pass input filter
  • anti logarithmic function

Project status

At this point the project is finished, a prototype is created and tested and it works very well.

However, the project is still not ready for mass production, due to high manufacturing costs. We are working on that.
