      maq BJ,

      I'm not sure but I remember that they started to ship just before the end of the third 2017's quarter.

      Hey guys,

      Just for the records today I got my Black Cat down here in Brazil.
      It was a nice unboxing experience and a not so pleasing "get started" experience but I managed to get it running in no time.
      All the parts seems top notch and have a high quality finish. Amazing attention to details.
      The brain has a terrible startup time and position it in the room to maximize IR signal to all the devices is quite a task.
      The charger is heavy and I like that magnetic touch that helps put the remote in the cradle.
      Getting the remote in my hands was almost like holding a piece of art. Although for all the years waiting and several prototypes it could have backlit buttons. It would not add extreme cost or project detour and we backers deserve that.
      Programming it or editing recipes, to be more exact, is kinda awkward. It's all in a database and the "intelligent" remote doesn't have a learn function. Counter-intuitive, huh?!

      If it could learn from the original remotes, we users could help construct a better and larger database. The solution for the NEEO not having a learning function, they could offer us for a low price any sort of device to read IR codes. The software could be an app or even a desktop software that could handle the reading and sending to the cloud.
      One last suggestion: customisable icons and wallpaper would be a nice touch!

      After all those years waiting for it and the money paid I almost regret not getting a new Logitech Harmony. Could NEEO team offer us a better experience?

      Just email

      I haven’t received my NEEO yet so emailed them and they responded quickly to say there had been an issue with delivery, my package was returned to sender but they have already dispatched a new one and provided a tracking reference.

      I have backed NEEO from the start of the campaign but never received anything or email confirming.

      Please reply and update

      I just received mine here in Malaysia, the unboxing experience is beautiful and Apple-like.

      Unfortunately, I dont remember what Neeo is suppose to do or be. Lol.

      Some people just don't get it. Team NEEO has world class tech support and a very active community

      @Sahey: I'm very positive they can help you too. you would have to be a bit more precise though. In case you don't want yours anymore I'm happy to buy it from you

      Got mine but useless.

    26. Niels de Klerk on

      @Dwayne maybe you could have better asked for support first before destroying your stuff. I had looked but didn’t find any comments from you on planet NEEO. And the issue you’re descending isn’t one I’m familiar with.

      I hope you have recorded your destructive actions. My son wasn’t able to so I’m assuming you used quite some force to do destroy and I believe it’s a lot of fun to watch.

      A Black Cat Dies. And it felt oh so goooooood!!!!!!

      After months of mediocre performance and trying to convince myself that switching through cellphone apps wasn't faster than using the remote. I finally caved in and smashed this beautiful remote into a million pieces. I can't believe how good it felt to do that.

      For the people that have super complicated set-ups, maybe this device works better for you or will work in the future. After backing this project I actually downsized my gadgets and actually went to a more low tech approach. A lot can happen in two years you know. I literally only needed this remote to turn on my TV and operate my Roku. It couldn't do that without having to restart the Neeo every other day.

      The hardware is beautiful and it may be capable of wonderful things in the future via software. But I can control my lights and my TV faster and easier than with cellphone apps. Plain and simple. Waking up in the morning and not being able to turn on a TV with a REMOTE pushed me over the edge.

      Oder habt ihr bereits aufgegeben der klasse Hardware ein vernünftiges Leben einzuhauchen?

      Habe meine Fernbedienung vor 6 Wochen bekommen und habe versucht sie in Betrieb zu nehmen. Nach 5 Stunden frustriet in die Ecke gestellt. Heute nach 6 Wochen nochmals probiert. Gleiches Resultat.
      Total bedienerunfreundlich und nur zu gebrauchen wenn man Technikfreak ist und bereit ist Stunden zu investieren.
      Design ist der Hammber aber was nützt das....
      Lege es jetzt wieder weg. Evt. kriegen sie die Software irgendwann in den Griff.

      Hello there, I got a mail with a tracking link and following the link shows me the Deutsche post site which says my item was delivered on Dec. 7th, but I have not received anything. Can you please quickly and urgently look into this?? Most of the stuff from KS at even a $100 level requires payment of Customs duty to get the shipment processed and delivered to me, but in this case there was no one that contacted me/anyone at my residence for any customs duty payment either, so there definitely seems to be something way off on that status update. Kindly check asap, thanks & regds

      Where is the IR learning function? isn’t this the basic function that a universal remoter shall have? Without this, yr product feels totally useless to me. I know the SDK has been released, but I have no time and mood to play with it. If the device is only for geeks, u shall make it clear in the project description. Now I can only control my Sony TV with the remoter, as the rests are not supported in yr database, and who knows when they will be supported eventually (to the end of the world maybe?) All these make me think that I have the right to return the product and ask for a refund!

    41. Altan on

      Finally found time to set it up last night and even though things can still be improved on the software side, I am certainly glad that I did not take the refund option when it was on offer. I’m sufficiently happy with it so far and confident that with the amount of commitment from the NEEO team, it will get even better. Top of my wish list would be Nest integration by the way. Time has come for me to head to Planet Neeo I think.

      As soon as I posted the message, I had postman at my door :-)

      What's HSN code for this product? I think, I am being charged too much custom duty and taxes, and I need exact HSN code to calculate before I take the delivery.

      Thank you

      I got my black cat. As others have pointed out, packaging is gorgeous, hardware looks very very nice.

      Just two nits on the hardware:
      - the power cable (USB) are too long and too rigid though. Since they are not micro USB, I’ll have to hunt for shorter cables.
      - the white LED is too bright

      This is truly minor.

      From a software standpoint, I feel disappointed:
      - The logic is rigid
      - lots of stuff over infrared (I hate infrared)
      - Hue stuff (colors, scenes,...) is lagging

      I understand things are on their way but 2.5 years was a long time to work out all this.

      All in all, it is a nice alternative to Logitech

      日本郵便に問い合わせたところ、まだ通関が終わっていないので情報がないとのことでした。その上でPascalにも問い合わせてみたところ、以前PascalがDeutche Postに問い合わせたときに、税関で "何か" が起きているかもしれない、輸出上の問題なのか輸入上の問題なのかはわからない、と言われたようです。
