  • We Have Our First Batch of Angee Samples!

    Hello everyone!

    Hope you’re all enjoying the spring sunshine! Last time we talked we had just finished the final phase of development (EVT) and were getting ready to move into the fun part: manufacturing!

    Working closely with our manufacturing partner Sky Light, we worked around the clock to make a batch of 170 sample Angee devices. The production was done using the same metal, plastic, and silicone pieces that we will use to make the final product, and now that the batch is finished we have all the molds needed for mass production (28 pieces in total).

    Though it’s months away, here at Angee it feels more like Christmas, because the new samples from our batch just arrived from China!

    This is our largest sample batch to date, and gets us significantly closer to having a production line that’s ready for mass production! Big thanks to our CTO Rosta for going to China to oversee the process, and for snapping these pics!

    The samples are currently being put through several scores of tests to make them ready for certifications and final fine-tuning. Testing should finish in the next couple of weeks, at which time we will fine-tune our design based on testing results and build another sample batch of 140 units.

    There are two major milestones about our next sample batch. First, we should be done fine-tuning hardware, so the next sample batch will be identical to the final units that will be sent to your homes. Second, some of the units from the next batch will be used for Beta Testing!

    We can’t wait get Angee in the hands of testers to help us fine-tune our software and user experience. It brings us ever closer to creating an amazing system which will help secure homes all over the world!

    That’s all from me for now. Talk to you soon!

    Best,

    Tomas and the Angee Team
