Hello everyone and Happy New Year! Tomas here to fill you in on what we’ve been up to the last while. As you can imagine there’s a bunch to report, so let’s get to it!
We have made tremendous strides since beginning collaboration with our manufacturing partner Sky Light Imaging. Together we really made our product better in some areas that we deemed important (like the 360° rotation, range of the Security Tags, audio design, camera sensitivity in low light, and many others) where the expertise of our world-class manufacturing partner, and also of the other experts we involved, really showed up.
These solutions improved the quality of the product while also making it easier to manufacture.We have also completed the final phase of development: Engineering Verification Test (EVT). During EVT we put pre-production samples through a battery of tests to make sure that all the parts of the different systems perform together properly. Though this phase is notoriously tricky and can often add unexpected delays, I’m pleased to report that we’ve completed this phase on schedule and are ready to jump straight into the manufacturing process.
Of course we have no intention of slowing down — quite the opposite in fact. There are some important tasks to check before the product is ready for production, and we are going into the depths of our software and hardware designs to ensure the use of the product is elegant and intuitive. We have also made significant progress with our cloud system, which is controlling the entire solution and empowering its smart features. We can’t wait to get it into your hands soon!
With that in mind, let’s get back to it! Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy 2017.
First batch of boards, all prepared for being flashed and tested
Some more boards – ready to be mounted into the mechanical mock-ups
Nice little panels with Security Tags – flashed with firmware and ready to be tested and used
Each Angee contains 6 PIRs (motion sensors) held on a FPCB stripe. Here is a batch ready for testing.
