Smartpixels.app in the media


We don't know about all our media appearances.
Not all of them were archived either, but the ones we have (or have access to) you will find below :)

Year 2020This season of lighting was different, mainly due to the coronavirus pandemic. The nativity scene as well as other object became special for people who could not, as every year, meet with loved ones and the lights control was a substitute for presence.

In place of Tomek's house - was made available for control,Mysterious Harbor- a lonely house on an small island, referring to the loneliness caused by isolation and also the pandemic.




Year 2019There were no significant changes in exhibitors this season. The main focus of the project was on the creation of the new site. For the first time in the project's history, Tomek did not provide any individual site to control due to the crib project. Krzysiek also did not have the time availability this year to take care of the project.


Year 2018This year we had a strong media presence. Both the interactive Christmas crib and the lights control at Mateusz's were featured in the media. We were first on the main newscast of Polsat TV'sWydarzenia(Events), and twice on the main newscast ofTeleexpresson TVP1. Lighting was presented in many places also outside Poland.

In 2018 we beat the number of people on the site, which was more than 3.5 thousand people at one time. This was caused by the presentation of the project in the news program of Polsat TV. It was a great test for us, as well as for our infrastructure.

Year 2017This season saw one of the breakthroughs for the project. With joint efforts we managed to establish cooperation with the Municipal Office in Modliborzyce with the support of the Youth City Council. The first in Poland, and maybe even in the world,interactive Christmas cribwas created. It was a special merit of Ms. Iwona Mańka - the MRM supervisor at that time.

In the 2017/2018 season, Mateusz joined the project by making his family home in Kraków available for control.

Year 2016This period brought big changes. Project for the first time went beyond the homes of Krzysiek and Tomek. We appeared at the Lublin University of Technology and at the District School Complex in Bieruń. Lighting could be controlled live for the first time by students and pupils of the above mentioned educational institutions.
The website get a new look and additional optimizations.

Wiktor joined the project with his Christmas interactive illumination.


Year 2015The Christmas project featured Krzysiek with his interactive Christmas tree. Thanks to the joint work we managed to improve the video transmission delivery and also to establish cooperation with local Internet providers. This year also saw the emergence of the name - Sterowanie24.pl(Smartpixels.app)

Sterowanie24 for the first time in its history appeared in the media. As the first, Kurier Lubelski was interested in the project, then the information moved to other sites and platforms with news. The biggest popularity of the project was the publication of the material in TVP1 - in the New Year's Eve newscast ofTeleexpress.
After the publication, the website was visited by more than a thousand people at the same time. The site could not withstand this pressure, at that time we did not have experience in building applications with such high popularity :)


Year 2014The control was first linked (in Facebook) to by Niebezpiecznik.pl - a web portal dealing with computer security. It generated a lot of interest at that time, generating over 11 thousand views of the lighting panel.


Year 2013Tomek independently developed the project by improving the website, among other things, and moving the entire project from Windows XP to the Linux, Debian 7, operating system.


Year 2012For the first time Tomek made the control available to the public on the Internet. The project was received very optimistically. Many users of the thematic forum had fun with the interactive illumination sharing helpful tips and positive comments on the lighting.
