      Hi Levy, this stretch goal has not been reached. So, likely the product will be delivered without these functions. However, we still think about updating it at a later point.

      Did Kevin reach the funding level sufficient to include communication with and over other platforms like IFTTT or directly with other smart lights?

      I look forward to learning more regarding the choices made and the effect it have on our product delivery and utilization.

      Thanks

      Hi Levy.
      We're in the process of deciding for a manufacturing partner. We have been in contact with few of them for a while, choosing the final partner in the next few weeks. Jakob, Head of Product and Khanh, CTO will fly to Asia next week for manufacturer visits, after having talked to some locally already.
      We'll post an update soon!

      Mitipi what I asked on BC I can do to any as pledge as long as opens up? That's what I asked again on backerclub.

      @mitipi Ltd - I have sent you a private message and would appreciate your quick response.

      Thanks.

      Hi Mark, thank you for your input! We are definitely looking into IFTTT and are already in contact with them. We're currently evaluating the best way to do it and will keep you updated on the developments.

      Hi Larissa, thank you for your comment! You could use the offline mode and use the buttons to start the simulation when you're in the back of the house and want Kevin to simulate activities in the basement room. Kevin does not have a sensor. We are looking at integration with third-party sensors so that Kevin could react to specific events. But this is something that is not fixed on the roadmap yet.

      I would like to put Kevin in a rarely used basement room that faces the front of the house, but most of our activity is in the back of the home. Can there be a sensor that tells Kevin when we are home upstairs in the back of the house, & when it quiets down he kicks in?

      Thank you.

      I like the idea of interfacing to other smart home equipment, but there are loads of systems and competing protocols, maybe creating interfaces to IFTTT would provide the best first step, plus skills for Alexa and Google home and let these systems do the triggering and interfacing

      Hi Levy; Kevin is using its private MQTT and REST Services with AWS. We may consider to open this to the public if there are many user requests in the future.

      Will Kevin support MQTT and or REST API services?

      Thank you Pamela for your input. Will come back to the community on that topic. Thx!

      Hi NG, thank you for your support and your question! This is only possible now if you buy it via a second Kickstarter profile. The other possibility would be to buy our package with 3 Kevins and then give away the third Kevin you don't need to a friend ;-)
