The team of designers and engineers at Fingoti based in the United Kingdom, have once again taken to Kickstarter to launch their latest project Pebl offering a complete Internet of things package the makers and hobbyists. “We’ve created a secure, affordable and universal IoT gateway device for use by anyone, to control anything, from anywhere.” The Internet of Things prototyping kit and universal IoT gateway features a management and control portal that allows you to test out processes using the Pebl Evaluation Board.
The Pebl Evaluation Board allows you to try out all the following features:
- Push buttons to trigger events
- Shine a large LED torch
- Spin a vibration motor
- Snap a 250VAC 10A relay for switching mains devices
- Sound a buzzer
- Read the temperature and humidity
- Check the light levels
- Store data in an EEPROM flash memory chip
- Send and receive UART data via USB
- Connect your own prototypes to an external header
- Provide an external power supply
Internet of Things prototyping and universal IoT gateway
“The Pebl hardware has been completely redesigned to cater for new features, better reliability and higher performance. We have redesigned the power management system to allow for a wider range of input voltages whilst consuming lower power and generating less heat. We have also optimised the WiFi antenna location to provide a longer range and better performance. A fully featured UART serial bus was squeezed in for even more flexibility. The RGB led control now has more stability, allowing improved visual performance and less flickering, as this was a known issue.”
Backer early bird pledges are now available for the unique project from roughly $32 or £24 (depending on current exchange rates), offering a considerable discount of approximately 20% off the final retail price, while the Kickstarter crowd funding is under way. With the assumption that the Pebl crowd funding campaign successfully raises its required pledge goal and production progresses smoothly, worldwide shipping is expected to take place sometime around February 2022.

“An exciting new addition for our pledgers is an easy to use and handy Evaluation Board for the Pebl, so straight out of the box, you can get to grips with the way that it works and what it’s capable of! We have worked extremely hard to build the user front end to the point where it is now useable for everyday management and control of all your devices. This was something that was not readily available before, but is now raring to go!”
“API Implementation – We’re most proud of this achievement, being the backbone of device control and usage. The final outcome is awesome! The newly reworked API allows for no fuss usage, with no tiresome hoops to jump through, no manufacturer lockdowns and best of all, it’s completely documented! All this whilst of course being fully authenticated.”
