Introducing Pacifi – The World’s Smartest Dummy
Blue Maestro introduces Pacifi, the world’s first smart pacifier that monitors a baby’s temperature and transmits the data to an app on a parent’s iOS or Android smartphone or tablet.
With a temperature sensor built into the pacifier’s silicon teat, Pacifi transmits temperature data via Bluetooth Smart (sometimes referred to as Bluetooth 4.0 or Bluetooth Low Energy) to a free app on an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet. The app determines when the temperature is the most accurate and then time-stamps and plots the temperature data in a graph. Via the app, parents can record when medication was administered, set-up alerts/ reminders and share the data with carers and medical professionals.
Pacifi also features an in-built proximity sensor that allows parents to monitor the pacifier’s location and so be alerted when their child wanders off. Within the app, parents can set the distance, up to a range of 50 metres, for the alarm to be triggered when this is breached.
The pacifier also features a buzzer alarm that can be activated via the smartphone when it has been misplaced or hidden by a child.
Using a low-energy Bluetooth Smart chip, provided by leading chip developers Nordic Semiconducter, Pacifi has a battery life of more than one year.
Geir Langeland Director of Sales and Marketing at Nordic Semiconductor says, “I am sure all parents can remember a moment where they wished for a way to locate that misplaced pacifier. This illustrates how Bluetooth Low Energy can be used to solve (for some) this major problem”
Pacifi will be available in Autumn 2014 and will retail for approximately £25 plus VAT where applicable.
Pacifi utilises Bluetooth Smart technology which provides ease of use, good range and long battery life. Simply turn Pacifi on and it works. Being ultra low power means it is completely safe to use around your baby.
Pacifi is completely sealed and is dishwasher proof.
Temperature and Medication
Through the free apps, you can track temperature and medication over time providing a time stamped record of your child's wellbeing. This data can be shared with other carers or medical professionals.
Pacifi can alert you through your smartphone or tablet when pre-set temperature thresholds have been met.
Pacifi has been carefully designed to maximise range, from the optimisation of the on-board radio to the placement of a high quality ceramic antenna. Ranges of 75 meters line of sight are achievable.
Pacifi utilises Bluetooth Smart technology and so is very energy efficient. From the coin cell battery (which comes included) Pacifi should operate for approximately a year.
The free apps allow Pacifi to be calibrated using a more accurate measuring device, such as an in-ear thermometer. Various other settings can be changed, such as the range of the device before proximity alarms are triggered.
Pacifi is compatible with iOS and Android devices that are Bluetooth Smart Ready (sometimes referred to as Bluetooth 4.0) and operate iOS 7 or Android 4.3 and later operating systems.
