Maxi-BEE Home Automation AdaptorHome automation and robotic control made easy
The simplest way to get started in home automation.





  Simply connect the Maxi-BEE to any free USB port to give immediate access to 64 standard digital outputs. Connect to your own electronics projects to make them PC controlled.
    Supplied with the Maxi-BEE is BeeStep64 control software.  This is a full editing suite for creating your own switch sequencer programs.  Simply enter your pattern of On/Offs and the duration of each step for up to 10,000 steps followed by RUN to  watch your connected devices respond according to your programmed sequence. No computer programming knowledge is required.
   Maxi-BEE is designed to be simple to use even for the complete beginner with full instructions on how to connect and create your control sequences. A standard USB lead (not included) is needed to connect the Maxi-BEE to your computer .
   If, however, you are already a competent programmer and wish to write your own programs for MaxiBee then a DLL (dynamic link library) is provided on the installation disk which greatly simplifies this process.
This DLL allows user programs written in a wide range of languages (eg C, C++ and Visual Basic), to have easy access to it's facilities.  It provides standard functions which can be called from the library to initialise the maxi-bee and send it output bit patterns without having to having to get to know the details of USB operation and comms etc... For more detailed information on how to use this DLL and example source code for visual basic please follow this link MaxiBee Visual Basic
  Information on programming in C++ is available within the manual, which may be downloaded below.
