24U Phidgets Plug-In lets you connect different kind of phidgets (www.phidgets.com) to your computer’s USB port and interact with them directly from FileMaker Pro.

You can triger a FileMaker script when a hardware button is pressed, or a value measured by an analog sensor exceeds defined maximum value.

You can display messages on a LED or LCD display, or simple turn on single LED to indicate success or failure of some action. You can identify people or goods using short-distance wireless RFID tags or cards.

You can move things by sending commands to servo motors. Or you can just build a railway model for your children and control trains using FileMaker Pro…


  • Control your solution by hardware buttons, switches, and sliders
  • Indicate status by lighting LEDs
  • Capture sensor data such as temperature, acceleration, force, light, or Ph
  • Read and write RFID tags and identification cards
  • Control servo motors from within FileMaker Pro

    Is it possible to do a script that manipulate a locker controller to open doors and sense door status, etc ?
    Could this plug in work in this way

    Hi Paul, you’re best bet would be to actually ask the developers themseves via their contact page – http://www.24usoftware.com/email.php
