Found this while cruising the web today!
Looks like a rival to the HexNail just not as polished.




· AerTouch-TC v1.1 Custom

Introducing the AerTouch TC, Aerify Digital’s first touchscreen, web-enabled Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) based temperature control device!

Housing the brand new AerPID version 1.1 (AerifyDigital’s PID Controller Board) this device merges reliable, proven temperature control methods with modern convenience and luxury. Offering both wired and wireless internet connectivity the AerTouch’s web interface has tons to offer users. By allowing you to log on to, and control your device from anywhere you have web access (Port-Forwarding may be required) the AerTouch helps to eliminate that feeling of dread when you reach your destination and realize you left your device on at home, or allows you to start the heating process as you leave in the morning so your device is ready to go when you arrive at work.

Hello everyone :)
The controller for the AerTouch is what we I call the AerPID, which is a custom Raspberry Pi 3b HAT. This circuit board attaches to the Pi and houses the SSR and Thermocouple, amongst other components. The interface software front-end runs on the RasperryPi and is capable of being updated with the push of a button on the touch screen. We are continuously improving the device, and evaluating different enclosure options as well. The current enclosure is 3D Printed and the RasperryPi used includes Wifi and BlueTooth wireless features.

At the initial time of inception for the AerTouch, I was not aware of the HexNail. Those cases are very pretty and I am interested in seeing what the device has to offer; will probably pick up a Hex-Nail at some point in the future..


I can answer any questions about the AerTouch if anyone is interested.

I have not thought about this project for quite some time...
Looks like not much has changed except for the price.

March 2017 - $418 - $450
August 2018 - $650 regular on sale for $325

Also like to note that HEXNAIL is no longer in operation.
