GPIO PCB for DSWF Products


The Gefen EXT-DSWF-GPIO GPIO PCB for DSWF Products allows you to add interactivity with relays and switches to enhance your Digital Signage presentation.

The Gefen General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) module works with the Gefen Digital Signage Player with Wi-Fi (or Wi-Fi Plus), allowing the professional integrator to add optical sensors, relays, lighting controls, buttons, and other devices to existing digital signage presentations.  Use the GPIO module with a motion sensor to automatically play digital signage content when someone approaches a screen or to trigger a relay to change the lighting at a kiosk or other destination--the possibilities are limited only by your creativity.  External events are sent via USB into the Digital Signage Player and integrated into the SMIL script to trigger playlists.  The GPIO module draws minimal power by using simple open-close circuits on the input and output ports.

How it Works

Connect the included USB cable from one of the USB ports on the Digital Signage Player with Wi-Fi (or Wi-Fi Plus) to the USB port on the GPIO.  Connect switches or sensors to the inputs.  Connect lights or relays to the outputs.
