From the Manufacturer
No need to get your smartphone out or to even be present for MicroBot to press, pull or toggle any button you like. Simply set a timer including a specific date, hour and duration of action so that all is done automatically, without the Prota hub.
The 2nd generation MicroBot’s gears are now stronger and quieter while lasting longer. Its internal structure have been redesigned to fully realize all useful features including touchscreens support and a more stable wireless connectivity. Built-in Timer / Less noise / More solid gears / Works on Touchscreen / Stronger connectivity
A MicroBot can be easily attached anywhere with an enclosed double-sided adhesive tape. A coin-sized Velcro or the similar helps a MicroBot turn on and off a switch.
2nd Generation MicroBot Push works on capacitive buttons (like tablets) with a simple rubber tip. Adapt to each type of button with fixing plates and simply fix with double-sided tape.
With Prota smart hub, trigger your MicroBots from outside your house on your smartphone and connect them to 350+ services & devices (including Amazon Alexa) with IFTTT. Turn your MicroBot Push into a beacon that triggers automation workflows when detecting nearby human presence.
Turn any existing appliance into a connected, smart gadget. You can now control it wirelessly and remotely. You don’t need to buy expensive connected appliances to make your house smarter. A simple MicroBot does the trick! * Prota device required for the IFTTT and Alexa integrations
Describe your product in 3 words.
Remote Button Pusher
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Notice how many buttons surround you? You press them regularly: to turn something on or off. We created MicroBot Push to connect these buttons and switches to the Internet, making dumb devices smart.
What makes your product special?
MicroBot Push is the only non-invasive product that can turn any diumb prouct into a smart gadget in the market. We value retrofitting existing appliances that you love and use everyday.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
There is a lot going on in this simple-looking button pusher. It's wireless and battery-operated, contains mechanical gears and a very small motor inside, and communicates with a smartphone app. Orchestrating all these different components has been the most challenging. The mass production is another whole story.

First the good:
The device itself does perform as advertised. Once it was setup, I could use the application to both control the device manually or automate its functionality via the use of timers.
Now the bad:
While I had initially planned to set it up and let everyone in my area install the app and control the curtains as needed, I discovered after installation that functionality would have required me to spend another $90 on the vendors device specific hub. Without the hub, the device could only pair to one phone at a time.
Requiring me to purchase another $90 device in order to fully utilize the first $50 device was strike one in my eyes.
However, while definitely an inconvenience, the issue wasn't a deal breaker so I decided to keep it. For about 6 weeks, it was great. It pushed the button, the curtains closed, and all was well with the world. Then, as the year went on, the sun began to shine through my windows just a little bit earlier each day. That is when I discovered the second major issue with this device...Once you set a timer, you can't edit it. When you try, the app says the change was made and if you exit and go back to the app the timer looks as if it updated, but the device itself ignores the change and continues to fire using the original settings.
This was strike two for the device.
Okay I thought, its not the end of the world. Maybe I can just delete the old timer and add a new one with the new settings. Nope. I can create all the timers I want and they will all fire as scheduled....but there is no way to delete them other than to completely reset the device and then re-pair it to your phone.
My first thought was..."That's it, I'm done. This is strike 3 for the device." Then I reconsidered. I was already out the $50 and long past the return period so I decided to check and see if there was a firmware update that might fix these issues. Unfortunately while there is a firmware update available for my button pusher, the app refuses to download and push it to device. Sometimes it will simply stop at 0% downloaded, other times it will start to download, get to about 8%, and then go back to 0%. This is on a rock solid wireless connection with my phone just a few feet from the device. After a couple of weeks of trying to update the the button pusher on both my network at home and at work, I gave up.
That was strike 3.
As I said earlier, I am now long past the return period. My options are to throw it away, try to sell it, or just understand that I will have to just do a full device and application reset anytime I need to change something. My choice is to continue using the device with the understanding that I will have to reset it anytime something needs to change.
Without the problems I listed as Strikes above, this would have been a 5 star review. Instead I'm deducting one star for each strike which leaves the rating sitting at two.
Naran equipment is based on a brilliant concept but the product is a complete failure.
I purchased 2 microbots and decided to buy a Prota-S trough Amazon.
One microbot bought June 3rd and delivered July 1st failed from the start. It took until the end of august and about 20 e-mails to get a replacement microbot.
In the mean time the Prota-S failed at initiation. I purchased the Prota S July 1st and after failed initiation notified Naran on July 7th. It took again about 20 e-mails and until October 7th to get a replacement. Guess what ! that one failed as well. Naran nor Amazon offer a refund, Naran does offers a second replacement, my confidence level in Naran equipment is zero, it is definitely not ready to be part of the internet of things. So don’t end up like me with 5 month project, $180 spent, to end up with nothing.
