Blumove units can be paired with smart phones and use an open connection mode with AES coding. The advantage of this function is that it can be used with several cell phones in the same time and it is possible for the sender to forward information. A smart phone can be paired with approximately 20 Blumove units (based on the memory coverage) that will receive the signals and forward them.

 

It can monitor the distance from the smart phone and can send warnings. With the search function, it assists to find a desired Blumove unit. It has a motion detector with sensor (M,L models) that will monitor any movements and sends a signal to a smart phone if anything moves or stops. It can monitor machinery, doors opening, any activity that has motion. In the case of any warnings, it is possible to stop or continue monitoring the activity. In the Blumove menu, it is possible to chose pre-set parameters depending on the need.

History:

Our story started in October 2012!

The big idea came that we should develop a Bluetooth product that can be easily used in our everyday life, sports or hobbies. The Bluetooth technology has arrived to a new stage since a very useful BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) was put on the market. That helps to have a working tool in use for more than a year with one button type battery. It was a big step since we all know that in the past it was a big issue, since the battery of the Bluetooth products did not last too long. The new technology opened new opportunities

In January 2013, we started to collect all the necessary information for product development and we started to work. Our team was ready to start the project by April-May. We contacted Bluetooth S.I.G. and registered with them. We had full support to start the development of the product. The second big step was to choose Laird Technology to develop and produce the radio modules. They have lots of experience and gave us a very favorable proposal. By the summer, the test panel was ready and we could start testing it to develop the best product.

We chose the best parts for the product and we built the basic prototype. The next step was the software development. Soon we bought a license from Apple and started the iOS application development. We had many tasks to complete including panel planing, design, and new solutions.

 


2013 was a very productive and successful year, since we had the Bluetooth beacon with working software. During the iOS development, we realized that we need more technology development than the module and the cell phones operating systems could handle. In January, with Laird Technology, we started the development of a new and unique pairing mode and code. This development opened new opportunities for us and the blumove product could be used better, easier and more securely. The AES encryption technology ensures that the open connection can be used more securely and much easier. It opened the possibility to use the Blumove beacon with more than one cell phone and to the sent data that can be transferred to a cloud system in a very secure mode.

In the spring of 2014, the product was under going serious testing and the Android developments started as well. In April, the product was ready to be introduced. We have started to work on product introduction to the marketplace, media materials and product information finalization. , The prototype and testing is now complete and we would like your support to ramp up production so everybody can enjoy even more this great product.

Risks and challenges

We have been working hard on developing this blumove product during the past year.

My team and I has done similar projects before and we have put those in production. We have been working with radio technology and also with Bluetooth accessories. We are supported by Bluetooth S.I.G. In the blumove project, Laird technology is our partner so we enjoy the support by the module manufacturer as well. We developed the AES encryption together which is a unique feature at the BLE field.

The product is already tested and works well so there will be no surprises. We have been testing them and using them, so we believe that everything will go easily and smoothly in this stage of higher production.

We would like to ask for help with the production and in order to offer it for a good price. We are ready to go. We need to purchase a larger quantity of materials and tools. The Blumove company will find the best manufacturer to help produce the best product. We will only work with companies who ensures the best quality and safety requirements during the production process. We will closely monitor and control the manufacturing process. We will do everything possible for a high quality product and ensure support with an excellent warranty.

Full scale production will be the EU. We have experience with a professional factory and have had no problems. When we begin to produce more than 10k, we will begin manufacturing also in China for better pricing. We have a relationship there that meets every challenge.

Our goal is to produce an excellent, multifunctional and innovative tool that will help with your everyday life. We hope you will enjoy it and will be able to use it many ways.

Thank you very much.
