Shipping of M and L Neurons postponed

Dear customers and fans, we want our products to be reliable in all aspects and we are very sorry to announce that we have to postpone the shipping of all M and L Neurons to 11.11.2016. We’ve found that LED diodes PCBs need to be changed for ones with better luminosity for 100% readability. To all orders recieved before 11.11.2016, which include Neuron M or Neuron L, we will add USB LED Lamp to light up your days, as a little excuse from UniPi team.

How is Neuron made?

After we unpack the single modules for Neuron and upload a firmware, every module is separately tested. Then, from the flawless modules we assemble the entire controller. Again, it goes through thorough testing and only if everything is perfect, NEURON is ready for you.

“We do our best to make our products reliable, best-serving control units.”

Extensions for NEURON

Do you know that all Neurons are compatible with all our 1-Wire extensions and sensors?
Check it out HERE!

And guess what, our developers never sleep and new extensions are on their way!
Currently developed modules are:

4× Analog input + 2× Analog output
4× RS485 (for Modbus communication)

Stay tuned!


Work is done, Neuron S is in stock now!

It is the smallest from Neuron controllers but it has all the features of professional PLCs!

Neuron S can be used as a smarthome controller as it’s great for energy monitoring and data collection, and it can be used also as feature-rich gateway for other systems. It allows you to interconnect several incompatible systems into one automation network!



Which one is your favourite?

With so many supported software solutions our customers’ve created many clever and original projects. Heating management, resource consumption monitoring, environmental conditions monitoring, security system, access management, automated lights or lock, the choice is yours!

Feel free to share your project with us!
You can do that by comment or on, we are thankful for any news, photos or updates, as we are very curious about different uses of our products.

Just think about all the possibilities… NEURON L is here!

The most advanced and the biggest one from NEURON line is NEURON L. It has enough inputs and outputs for more extensive projects than NEURON type S and NEURON type M have. It is suitable for complex automation systems like big smarthome projects or other building automation projects, as an additional surveillance system in industrial automation, or for large energy monitoring and data collection projects.



Besides, each NEURON has 1 analog input, 1 analog and 4 digital outputs, RS485 for Modbus communication, Ethernet 10/100 Mb and various number of relays and digital inputs. We are also preparing extensions for NEURON, so if the basic functions are not enough, you are still able to customize and enlarge your combination!

“We designed NEURON L in 3 variants, (L200, L300 and L400), which differ in number of relays and digital inputs, so it can fulfill all of the various needs of our customers. Also, every combination of NEURON L is offered in three performance levels, which differ in processor performance and RAM size.”

NEURON L has excellent performance parameters of professional PLC for a good price. Table below shows the overview of NEURON L models and their performance levels.



Neuron L200 together with 36 digital inputs and 4 transistor outputs features also 28relay outputs. That make Neuron L200 an adequate controller for greater residential buildings and automated premises, which can manage central heating, boilers, blinds or turn on/off the lights, and all of this based on values retrieved from thermometers, motion sensors, magnetic contacts in doors and windows or on inputs from switches, web interface, etc. More info


Neuron L300 features 4 transistor outputs and 64 digital inputs, the most digital inputs from the whole NEURON line. Thanks to this Neuron L300 is an excellent monitoring unit for advanced measuring systems with a lot of data points, such as thermometers, motion sensors, magnetic contacts, electricity meters, gas meters, flow meters, etc. More info


Neuron L400 features 4 digital inputs, 4 transistor outputs and 56 relays, (and of course RS485 for Modbus and 1-Wire bus for connection of digital thermometers). This all makes L400 perfect for extensive projects with huge amount of switching components, such as boilers, lights, blinds or shutters, ventilation fans, irrigation sprinklers or different household appliances, while you are still able to built the management on basis of obtained values from the data points.
