At the heart of the Unifi product suite, is the Unifi App. The Unifi App brings together all your devices into a single platform and enables you to perform miracles at the touch of a button. The Unifi App was designed from the ground up with one mission – to streamline the set up and performance of your gig.
Although not required to operate the Unifi Product Suite, it is recommended to take advantage of the advanced features being provided within the Unifi suite.

The Unifi iOS App provides you with a single, consolidated view, so that you can visually see events from Dice, Dominoes, Poker Chips, Color Sense, Pen Sense, Magneto and even Second Sight scanning Playing Cards & your own custom RFID tags with your custom images and text showing.
The Status screen displays a list of events in reverse chronological order – so you see the most recent event first.
The status is also communicated to the companion app on the Apple Watch in real time.
Here are just some of the TOXIC Calculator functions:
Allows a predefined result to be forced upon the spectator. For example, the force number could be your cellphone number, todays time and date, Lotto numbers or any result that you would like, regardless of the mathematical equation, the result will always be your forced result.
You can discreetly obtain information about the spectator such as their birthday, age, star sign, and the suburb/city that they reside.
Data entered into the TOXIC Calculator may be automatically sent to a myriad of third-party devices, such as thermal printers, wireless clocks, watches, and CGI video effects.
Unifi allows for up to nine different preset TOXIC Configurations to be defined, to enable you to switch between pre-defined configurations quickly.
Illuminati Magic knows all performers have a different preference on how they want to receive the information. Thats why within the Unifi App the user can edit a significant amount of features. For those who wish to have the Unifi thumper on them to receive vibrations their are a multitude of options to edit to your preference:
- Number of Vibrate Repeats
- Time Between Vibrate Repeats
- Vibrate Strength & Length
You also have the options to turn Vibrations on & off for the iPhone and Apple Watch.
The Unifi iOS App also incorporates a leading edge “Text to Speech” engine (supporting an ever growing list of languages).
All events that occur within the Unifi Range can be chosen individually by the user if to send audio to a Bluetooth connected earpiece.
For example, If a RFID Card is programmed with “Tom Cruise, Mission Impossible”, then this is converted to audio and played via the Bluetooth earpiece.
All devices (Dice, Dominoes, Poker Chips, Second Sight, Magneto, Color Sense, PenSense, NFC Reader and Toxic Calculator) are supported with the text to speech platform, in addition to system events such as "White Casino Dice Low Battery" or "Second Sight Powering Up"
The Unifi iOS App also incorporates a “Stealth View”, that emulates the lock screen of your iPhone and pops up with faux notifications that incorporate detailed information about the events happening with your Unifi Devices.
Stealth mode cleverly disguises in these examples the color of the Dice and Crayon in the logo and includes the result within the notification. Second Sight information for playing cards are the reminders.
Can you spot the devices in this example?
King of Clubs, White Dice 1, Green Crayon, 9 of Diamonds, White Dice 3 and Red Crayon.
Custom notifications have been created in a similar format using many different logos for all devices, to discreetly communicate the result in plain sight of the audience.
This is a perfect feature for impromptu performances or when seated and your phone may be casually out on the table.
You are just about to prepare for you gig – typically this means plugging and charging in all your electronic devices the evening before in preparation for the big gig.
Once you get to the venue, you then repeat this process, just prior to commencing as one final check before your performance.
We have all been there – it is a time-consuming necessity.
With the Unifi App, you can see at a glance what devices are connected, the battery level for each device and the signal strength – all of which are designed to ensure that you are ready to perform and not waste any time preparing.
At the touch of single button, you can instantly see the battery level of all your Unifi Devices and double check that every device is working and within range.
One of the most advanced features of them all is the RESPOND ONLY TO REGISTERED DEVICES.
Due to every Illuminati Magic product having a unique serial number it allows the user to select and register their products once connected so they only receive notifications of events for their products.
This allows multiple performers to use their products all at once in the same area and not receive each others signals.
The Search feature enables a myriad of revelations to be performed using a spectator’s smartphone. This technique operates by mimicking the appearance of a popular web site (called the “landing page”) and then pushing a URL to this landing page.
Once the spectator's smartphone is on your landing page, it is a simple case of pushing URL’s to this landing page. Every outcome of every device may have a custom URL associated with it, which enables you to send this URL to a spectator’s phone when using the Search feature.
This may sound a little daunting, but it allows you to redirect the spectator's browser to any web site that you like, based upon the outcome of an RFID Scan from Second Sight, the roll of a Dice, the selection of a Poker Chip or in fact, any Unifi device.
For example, you could have a spectator select their favorite music and automatically redirect their selection through an RFID Scan – or it could be an Unifi Dice hidden inside a gaffed object for music selections.
Likewise, you may assign a URL to each RFID tag – this could be a movie trailer, a song, a purchasing link on Amazon, a holiday destination, images of famous people, landmarks – virtually anything that you care to predict.
These can also be direct links to images, videos, or music on your web site.
The third-party integration functionality of Unifi is just like having a backstage assistant – except you are in full control of what is happening. A spectator selects a RFID Playing Card and once you press a button on the Unifi Thumper, the chosen card is instantly sent to any number of reveals; from Greg Rostami’s Inject 2 App to Prevision and CUPP.
Unifi is compatible has been tested with leading brands of magic suppliers – enabling a level of automation never seen before in the industry.
