What is MESH?
MESH is a tool that let you explore the world of IoT (Internet of things) using everyday objects.
Just attach your MESH tag to any physical object,
and connect it with various connected devices and Internet applications on the MESH app.
Your own personal IoT (Internet of Things) system is created, just like that!
No matter what your knowledge level, MESH is easy to use. There is no need for electronics or programming expertise.
Simply drag and drop to connect the icons on the MESH app.
Just connect in the app
You don’t need advanced technical training or tools to use MESH.
If you want to “turn on an LED light when you press a button,” drag and drop the button icon and the LED light icon on the MESH App – Once you connect the icons together, a cheerful ping sound indicates the connection.
And just like that, you have created the mechanism for turning the LED light on when the button is pressed.
With MESH, you can:
- - Connect to various internet services (e.g. Gmail and IFTTT)
- - Connect to various wireless devices (e.g. Phillips Hue, Olympus Air)
- - Control functions on your iPhone or iPad (e.g. camera, speaker, microphone)
MESH Tags have variety of functions including motion sensor/LED/button/brightness sensor and many more.
They are connected to the MESH App wirelessly and their compact shapes enable them to be easily attached or built into something. Unleash your creativity by combining them together!

Can I play with just one tag?
Yes, of course. For example, if you use the button tag, you can easily pair it with your phone’s camera to take a selfie. If you attach the Move tag to your front door, every time someone opens the door, you can an email notification on your phone. – There are many ways to play even with just one tag.
