SMS Switch

Below a few examples of Necoso customers and projects that we did for them in the past...


SMS Switch

The SMS Switch is a product that was developed exclusively for TWS Technologies. The 'SMS Switch' is a small switchbox for remotely switching on/off of 220V devices with SMS messages. The SMS switch is very user-friendly and can be directly installed between device-to-be-switched and the mains socket.

Nefit LogBox

The LogBox is data logger box that was developed for Nefit by Necoso. Its primary task is to ‘watch over’ a boiler at the site of a Nefit customer. This ‘watching over’ involves continuous gathering of boiler telemetry and checking if the boiler is functioning within its normal operational perimeters

The Favonian IF350 box is an add-on device for military radio equipment that allows for automated antenna filter steering and remote radio control over ethernet. The IF350 hardware is based on a Favonian motherboard and a Necoso network module. Necoso also did all the application software development for the network module.



In 2003 a partnership for GSM based network connectivity solutions was founded by Necoso, Siemens, Zenitel and Telfort.

One of the first initiatives resulting from this partnership is the Windmill-On-Air showcase project. The project demonstrates the use of GSM and internet technology for wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. The Windmill-On-Air project is an interactive GSM showcase built around the largest windmill in the Netherlands which is located next to the A12 highway, near Zoetermeer. The showcase enables a user to get telemetric information about the windmill using SMS. A webcam at the top of the windmill uses GPRS technology to for camera control and transmission of its panoramic pictures.

Nefit boilers on-line

Nefit is one of Europe's leading companies in boiler and heating technology.

For Nefit we realized an evaluation project that enables access to a boiler using ethernet and GSM technology. A web interface was created that allows a user to view the boiler settings and error logs with a webbrowser. GSM technology was used to enable remote control with a mobile phone (SMS). SMS is also used by the boiler itself for reporting errors to a service organization.



Increased magic for the Magic Ball

The Magic Ball is an advertising product from Lumino. De Magic Ball is glass ball that projects advertising text messages in very eye-catching way. Using fast rotating LED technology an optical illusion is created in which the text messages seem to 'float' inside the ball.

By default the texts for the Magic Ball are programmed locally and manually, using an infra-red remote control. Necoso has realized a number of ID1021 based solutions for the Magic Ball that add more 'magic' and enable remote and automated updating of the Magic Ball messages. The solutions include support for programming the texts for one or more Magic Balls using a web page, SMS, or GPRS.









 Renesas promotion suitcase

Silica is the distributor of Renesas microcontrollers in the Benelux. The network connectivity modules of Necoso are based on Renesas microcontrollers. In close cooperation with Silica and Siemens have realized a number of demo suitcase for promotional purposes that demonstrate the full potential of embedded internet and GSM connectivity with Renesas microcontrollers and Siemens GSM modules.

The demo suitcases include the following:

  • Necoso ID1021 module.

  • LCD display for displaying of text and graphics.

  • Siemens GSM modem for wireless remote control (SMS, GSM data, GPRS)

  • DCF receiver for radio-based automated time & date accounting.

  • PS/2 keyboard interface that enables attachment of a regular PC keyboard.

  • Infra-red interface for control of a Magic Ball, see above.
