Congratulations on having your PeekSmith device. We hope you will like this tiny piece of magic, and you'll amaze your audience.
We recommend joining our PeekSmith Facebook group for updates and discussing your ideas. It is a welcoming and active community you will love. 🙂
It is one display model available in our shop at the moment. For more information, please check our PeekSmith 3 product page.
We are sharing important tips here - please read this First Steps guide carefully before start using our device.
Always make sure that you upgrade your device to the latest firmware (code running on PeekSmith device). You can do it with the PeekSmith app, for more details read our firmware update guide.
If you just got the device, it is likely that we have newer firmware than the device has, but you can start experiencing with PeekSmith 3 without an immediate upgrade.
Your PeekSmith might arrive uncharged. We recommend charging it before start using it. If you turn on the device, you will see the battery percentage on the screen. When PeekSmith 3 is connected to a charger, you will see a Charging screen with a rough estimate of the time left until the device will be fully charged. Make sure it is fully charged before a performance.
You can turn on the device by pressing and holding the side button. It will vibrate, and display a "PeekSmith 3" screen including the brightness setting and the battery level. You have to press and hold the side button for 3 seconds to turn off the device. After the red LED turns on or starts blinking, you can release the button.
Previous models have a small on/off switch. When these devices are on, you should see red LED lighting inside the device. These are also displaying a short message and the battery status. The PeekSmith Two device will do a short vibration.
When you finished using it, don't forget to turn it off. With one charge, the device can work for several hours.
The device will arrive with a thin transparent foil on the screen. Feel free to remove it, the screen will look much better. It might be hard to find the edge of it.
Now the device is ready to connect to a mobile app via Bluetooth or use it as a standalone device to connect to other Bluetooth devices.
PeekSmith 3 can operate on its own by connecting to other Bluetooth devices: dice, NFC reader, and impression pads. Make sure you read our Standalone Mode guide to master what you can do without a phone.
You should install the PeekSmith application. Go to The App page and follow the instructions.
Start the app, and go to Settings. You will see different sections, in the first one, the "PeekSmith Device", you should see a "Select PeekSmith" title and a "List devices" button. Press the button, and your PeekSmith device should be listed there. Tap on the device name, and the device should connect. The PeekSmith device will display a "Welcome" message.
If your PeekSmith 3 device is not listed, please check these:
Now you should see a green button with the "Details..." text, press it, and now you can test your device.
There are different ways you can use your PeekSmith device now:
You can charge the device with the Micro-USB / USB-C port (latest models). Any compatible charging cable should work, you can buy them in an electronics store. You can plug your device into your computer's USB port, or a wall charger.
It is about 1-2 hours to charge your device to 100%. It doesn't matter if PeekSmith is on or off while you charge it, the charging time is more or less the same. If the device is off, it will charge a bit faster. You will not damage the device by keeping it on the charger for the night.
There are two important notes:
Devices with a Micro-USB port will not give you visual feedback when you charge the device. Turn PeekSmith 3 on to see if it is charging properly.
Devices with the USB-C port turn on as you plug them into the charger, and you will see charging information.
For first-time users, some tips to know:
PeekSmith is an electronic device that can work in normal room conditions. While we have designed it to be as massive as possible, the screen can break or some water can cause damage to the electronics.
Please contact us if you know about more compatible apps, and we can add it to this list.
