    Giving You A Digital Connection to Your Mailbox

  • mSleeve tracks whether or not there is mail waiting for you in your UPS Store, Fedex Box Store, apartment, condo, office or any other interior mailbox that you may have.

     

    The mSleeve links your mailbox to you 24/7 anywhere you are. You no longer need to drive to or visit your mailbox daily to see if mail is in.The mSleeve is a low profile custom engineered and designed cardboard sleeve which houses battery powered sensors and electronics that fit easily into an interior mailbox.

    mSleeve with Mail

    Sensors have been triggered and an email and/or a text was sent to the mailbox owner.

  • This is how mSleeve works:

     

    When mail (or a package notification slip) is placed in your mailbox battery powered infrared sensors mounted on the mSleeve are tripped and send an email or text to you stating that mail is waiting.

     

    The sensors check every hour for mail which takes microseconds to send data to the Cloud between the hours of 9am and 8pm Monday – Saturday. The rest of the time the mSleeve is sleeping and is not connected to the Cloud. When mail is placed inside the mSleeve the sensors are triggered and you receive an email (or text) letting you know that there is mail to be picked up.

     

    The mSleeve connects to the Cloud in one of two ways:

     

    1) Wi-fi - using Particle's Photon chip, connecting the mSleeve to the local wi-fi network requiring minimal bandwidth.

     

    2) Cellular - using Particle's Electron chip, connecting the mSleeve to a cellular network and requires a monthly connection fee. This version while it has monthly fee gives the most flexibility when a wi-fi connection is not an option.

     

    The mSleeve comes in two flavors:

     

    mSleeve Developer Kit

     

    and

     

    mSleeve End User Kit

  • The mSleeve Developer Kit

    The kit comes with a mSleeve Breakout Board, sensors, battery housing and a mSleeve box all assembled plus software for flashing to the Particle Cloud.

    mSleeve Board

    With headers to accept either Photon or Electron

    The mSleeve Breakout Board accepts either a Particle Photon or Electron board into the onboard headers.

    A power control circuit to control power consumption from the sensors to prolong battery life is integrated into the board. In addition it also contains a convenient battery power switch.

    Photon
