The Magical Digital Picture Frame by NIX

NIX present a range of Motion-Sensing Digital Picture Frames that automatically turn on when you're there, and off when you're not. No longer will Digital Picture Frames sit idle across the homes of America. NIX frames save energy, capture attention, and provide businesses with cost-effective Digital Signage. NIX Digital Picture Frames enter the age of the sensored environment.

The quality makers of Digital Picture Frames, NIX, have just released their latest range of Digital Picture Frames, known as Hu-Motion™ frames (Human Motion). In the new age of a sensored environment where tech increasingly reacts to you and not the other way around, the Hu-Motion™ frame provides the ultimate in convenience by simply turning on when it senses you nearby and off when it senses no movement. The amount of time the frame allows for no movement before switching off can be set from one second to twenty-four hours (down to the second).

Across the USA millions of frames sit idle in the homes of parents and grandparents, recipients of well intention gifts. The traditional Digital Picture Frame often proved to be another dust-gathering gadget that became a chore to go around turning on and off every day. So NIX took this on board and produced something that didn't require any operation beyond the set up.

Around the home the Hu-Motion™ frame has found additional uses. Such as the ability to leave video messages for family members on the frame that get played when the frame senses them come home. People even leave video messages for their pets to keep them company whilst home alone!

As well as home use the Hu-Motion™ frame has increasingly found its way into the commercial world. Hospitals have been stationing the Hu-Motion™ frame by toilet exits, when the frame senses someone exiting it reminds them to wash their hands. Factories station the Hu-Motion™ frame in areas and by equipment to remind people of strict Standard Operational Procedures. Store managers are placing the Hu-Motion™ frame in strategic store areas, where a human activated frame is a better attention grabber.

The NIX Hu-Motion™ Digital Picture Frame comes in two models. The 8" size which also features a rechargeable battery for portability and the much larger 12" model.
