Use this space to cheer the creator along, and talk to your fellow backers.
Have a question?
@Annie: according to the FAQ, yes.
When do we choose the color we'd like to receive?
@creator @Jerome @all Does anyone recall whether bonjour works with WeMo?
I just sponsored another project on Kickstarter that may compliment your project
I was wondering if you can look into supporting this device.
I also own a Honeywell themostat, which allows me to control my heat/air conditioning over the internet thru an iOS app. Will you be supporting this as well?
David, Mike - I agree, one moth up is not big deal... it is the lack of precise information what bothers me. No intention to troll here or anything. Just expressing what I'd like to see in the updates.
(just for the record, my pledge level states "Estimated delivery: May 2017" (note, 'delivery', not 'shipping')
May was a bug in the Kickstarter app. It has always been June. But I've always expected August, so if they push it back only to July, I'll be really happy :)
They never said they were going to deliver in May. It has always been June. But be prepaired for a July shipping date IMO.
Last update seemed to miss the most important point for most of us: SCHEDULE. This means, we have to wait for MAY for you to confirm that you will not deliver in May? ... I don't want to sound harsh, but some notion on what is the REAL expected delivery date would be nice... Not giving information on that "little detail" leave you guys in a gray area in which any guess, from July to December seems possible, and trust in you goes down steadily...
Long story short: YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A DELAY based on your last update . How long is the delay?
GUYS!!! Make sure to read at least a little of the article to find the questionnaire about your musical interests!
And are we still on board for a May shipping?
I have no idea what your last update was explaining, but it looks like things are moving along nicely. Any idea where you are production schedule wise?
Of all my Kickstarter projects, this one excites me the most. I've had Alexa for a while now and while it easy to pick holes in what she cannot do its mostly positives and I'm hoping by the end of the year to be reading articles about Alexa vs Google Home vs Bonjour. What I like most is how you seem to be tackling one of my bugbears about IOT - I want something to tie everything together. So far my phone seemed to be the control but Bonjour seems smarter and needs less. I like the battery idea - my Alexa is sitting on a battery pack so she can come out into the garden.
I don't know if anyone has asked this yet, it does bonjour have a backup battery for just the alarm in case of a power outage?
Are we going to get another update soon (crossing fingers for good news)?
Could Bonjour create a smart alarm using a sleep tracker like a Jawbone or a Fitbit? And could Bonjour also link to Philips Hue to do sunrise lights with the alarm?
@Jerome: will we be able to modify the trigger "Bonjour" to something else?
Think about all the frenchies that, like me, greet their girlfriends/boyfriends with a "Bonjour ..." in the morning. :-)
No point worrying about addresses until we get the surveys
So is this still on track?
I move house in 4 weeks what should i do about my address. When should it arrive? Thanks
Awesome update team! Lets hope other Kickstarter projects follow suit
That was a great update! Highly impressed with the thoughtfulness that was put into letting us know what is going on. The production progress chart is a really good visual to get a high level summary of where you are. I really like that approach as it does not put any specific dates/milestones in there. Based on the certainty that there is always going to be shifts in focus and tweaks/improvements needed, not focusing on specific dates (at this stage of the process) is much more realistic and is a good idea overall to give us transparency without necessarily setting everyone up for disappointment later if those dates are missed (ahemm Fidget Cube haha). I'm extremely confident that you will do what is in the best interest of the customer and in a timeline that is feasible to deliver a great product!
The 3/16-China tour update should be the benchmark for all crowdfunding projects. Too often I see complaints due to not hitting the projected ship dates. These projects are not buying an item online, it is an investment of the manufacturing of the item (mostly). Your timeline and breakdown is pure joy to see and share the time and effort to make this item. Ill take quality over speed any day. Keep pressing forward, I have full confidence when ever Bonjour arrives, it will be a centerpiece of technology in my place. Thank you - ITC TJS
Thanks a lot this is the biggest update ive ever seen. Good Work
What I found coolest is the picture of an actual "Bonjour" in it.
Looks like the team had a good grip on everything and will deliver a solid product! Congratulations guys!!!
Update 12. And that ladies is gentlemen is how you do an update. I only wish some of the other projects I had backed were as thorough as Bonjour.
Yesterday was the 15th... I'm hoping for an Update! (I'm so excited for this product... I just cant wait!)
Hello Jerome, I have seen the question few times but no answer yet. Could you please let us know how is it going to be sent to not be taxed in our countries? In my case I live in Spain and in other Kickstarter projects that I have participated, they were not sent as purchase to not pay extra taxes (I pledged 2 bonjours!!)
Thanks for your help! Willing to have my two Bonjours at home!
I agree with Daniel - if you could do that it would be very helpful
@bonjour @jerome I will need the item to be listed as a gift, and a low value cost, as I might be taxed for the import otherwise.
I plan to get my smart home system call Broadlink,is this broadlink work well with bonjour??
@Jim Green: We will share a fully updated schedule and info on development and manufacturing of Bonjour in our next update (March 15th).
@Jayashankara Kantharaja: As BLINK now offers IFTTT compatibility, integration with Bonjour should be possible.
@Santiago Rivera Mateos: please check back our campaign page: we won't ship Bonjour this month ;-)
@rootzy: oui. Mais merci de le rappeler. N'hésiter par à le noter dans votre réponse au questionnaire "smart home" (voir la rubrique actualités) !
@LEE KIEN HENG: yes, you will need August connector for Bonjour to work with August 1st gen products.
So do we have an updated schedule for delivery?
Could you please provide the tracking number?
Is Bonjour supports BLINK/BLINK XT security camera?
Avez vous pensé à Withings et Myfox, histoire de travailler avec les français ? :)
I am using August 1st gen smart lock, do i need to buy the august connector in order to communicate with BONJOUR ?
Très bonne idée votre questionnaire pour orienter vos développements ! ;-)
De mon côté, même si j'y ai répondu, j'en rajoute une couche en insistant sur la compatibilité avec le système HEOS de Denon. Me réveiller avec ma musique préférée diffusée dans la chambre en semaine, et dans tout l'appartement le week-end (exemple de recette), ce serait top!!
Hâte d'avoir mon Bonjour :-D
@jerome: éprouvez vous des problèmes pour publier l'update mensuel ?
@Cédric: Ce sera LCD. Comme je l'anticipais, il sera impossible de trouver un AMOLED en 2017 auprès de fournisseurs de premier rang. L'ensemble de la production est déjà réservée pour les géants de la téléphonie jusqu'à mi 2018 ! Reste alors, les fournisseurs secondaires et les risques associés en terme tant de qualité.... que de coûts (puisqu'ils savent être en position de force).
Looking forward to the future updates and can't wait to use Bonjour!
Will this smart alarm clock work offline ? or any of its features work offline ?
Du coup vous avez choisi les écrans OLED ou non?
@Giovanni @GijsBraakhuis @Rudy Van Nuffelen
As indicated we're going to publish a monthly update every 15th of the month. So stay tuned ;-)
On the hardware side, getting Kickstarter funds (see below) late slightly impacted our initial schedule. But anyhow it's always better not to start moldings right before Chinese New Year holidays. But impact on delivery planning shall remain limited.
I'm personally going to China at the end of the week to see how things are moving on and update our schedule.
On the software side, we're on-track with the plan.
Yes, we (finally!) received the funds from Kickstarter middle of January.
It took nearly a month and a half to get them. It has slightly impacted our tooling planning.
But it's a blessing in disguise as it has allowed us to refine some choices in terms of hardware engineering. Impact on general manufacturing planning shall remain limited.
Indeed, CES show wasn't only a great occasion to show Bonjour to the public but a perfect moment to meet with key component vendors and frozen some of our choices.
