General features

Module MGEST-1 is a component of the Ampio SmartHome system, and can be used for:

  • activating any devices/lighting linked to the Smart Home system

Module is controlled via CAN-Bus. Required voltage to power the module is 11-16V DC.

The module recognises hand movements over the sensor glass and can perform defined functions depending on the direction of movement. For example, hand movement from left to right can turn on the room lighting, and the movement from the top to the bottom mutes the audio system.
Touching glass is not required – the module recognises gestures made in front of the glass.

Recognised gestures:

  • top to bottom
  • bottom to top
  • from left to right
  • from right to left
  • edges tap
  • central tap

The device has a port for connecting the Dallas 18B20 temperature sensor. The sensor data are transmitted to CAN bus and may be used for controlling heating systems, window blinds or any other system .
In addition to the basic functionality, the module has 4 signaling controls and built-in buzzer.


A special guiding plate is used for installing the switch.

Find out how to fix the plate by reviewing the following instruction:
Installation of a guiding plate for the 2, 4, 6, 9-field panel.


The module may be programmed with a special programmer, available for authorised technicians, and the Ampio SmartHome CAN configurator software. This program provides for setting up the module’s response to input signals and other information from the CAN bus.
