Have a question?
So? How goes the manufactory hunt?
@Tina We have sent an email to the address you provided! @Tzfardaya Thank you for your comment as well
hi, could you cancel my order please. I have waited too long for this. I have also emailed to cancel the order but no one has contacted me. Please email me at email@example.com
@Tzfardaya @TaeWooKIM We just met with the manufacturer yesterday and will provide an initial update this week! There are a lot of moving pieces and many more meetings/conversations to be had but we feel good about our first meeting. Please know we are working hard to get things moving as quickly as possible so bear with us! We really appreciate your patience.
Because the last update had little to do with the project, and the update prior to that said they were meeting with a manufacturer this month and they'd update us in January about that meeting.... Running out of January and they haven't said peep about that meeting.
The last update was only two weeks ago. Why the whining?
@Gord Likar Thank you for following up. Please check your messages!
I asked for a refund weeks ago, why no response whatsoever?
@Tzfardaya Yes, we will integrate with other smart home systems but our first priority is to get this device manufactured and delivered! In regards to Shark Tank - our appearance on the show has no effect on the kickstarter project or our progress, and we are pushing forward to deliver your orders. We agree, the software side can be integrated later through updates and thus as mentioned, we are first and foremost focusing on building a reliable device. We are working hard to find the right manufacturer who can meet our needs and will update when we do. Thank you!
So, having watched your failed attempt on Shark Tank, where does that leave the kickstarter project? From the looks of your demonstration, you should be ready to take this to market and produce/deliver our pledges. The software upgrades (preprogrammed recipes) and the like you talked about can be done after as firmware/app updates.
(problem with many fund seekers on shark tank is that they ask for too much with too little equity for offer... For example, $800,000 @ 8%..)
I'm still hoping you'll connect to Google home, eclipse smarthome (openhab), and Apple homekit..
Thank you, @Bob S.! We appreciate your comment and understanding.
@Mohamad Dafer Yes! Our direct email is firstname.lastname@example.org. As @Tzfardaya mentioned as well, you can send us a message through kickstarter as well. Let us know if you have issues with this!
Kickstarter does have a direct message system between backers and project creators..
On the campaign page is a button labelled ask the creator a question.. It sends the creator the dm and an email notification.
Is it possible to have an email to send you a direct message.
Inirv, don't be bullied by backers who think they deserve something for free. Update us when there's real news. Focus on getting us the device we backed that will improve our lives and make us safer. There are always a few high-maintenance people in every campaign. Don't let them run things or control you.
@MOHAMMED A KHAN Thank you for your feedback! We know it is very upsetting and disappointing and please know it is for us as well - we want to get our product to market as fast as we can and have been doing everything possible to achieve this. We agree that we should post at least a bi-weekly update - we of course do not want to lose your faith or trust so we will be sure to follow through! Right now our focus is getting our product manufactured and delivered, however we will look into how we can show our appreciation to you all by the time we ship. Again, thank you for your honest communication and let us know if we can answer any other questions.
@creator, a 6 month delay is a bit upsetting. We really have no idea what goes on in your lives but we have have been waiting anxiously for the Inirv.
The least I requested at the end of the campaign was a regular update from you guys. A bi-weekly update doesn't take that long and is easily doable. If you do not want us to lose faith and trust in you, you should maintain that as a minimum. Also, a gift of some sort should be added as a Goodwill from your end.
@MedicNYC Thank you for your comment, and we understand and agree! We will make sure to post more regular updates, regardless of how much there is to be said. We do have manufacturers lined up, and have for several months. However, given the testing and design changes, we have not finalized one yet and we want to be honest about that. We spent the last 4 months meeting with manufacturers and have a very good handle on the partner we require to produce the best quality product. Unfortunately, with so many moving parts and a complex device, we have found it difficult to find a partner that meets all our needs without compromising on quality. Our next milestone is finalizing the design based on our in house and beta testing which will allow is to begin manufacturing, and we will be sure to provide an update along the way as well as when this milestone is complete.
Thank you for your honest communication! We take your feedback very seriously and will act on it. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
Thanks for the update. While delays are normal and expected, it would be nice to get more regular updates from you. I've backed campaigns that regardless of how much or little they have to report, they send out a weekly update. It doesn't take much time and makes a big difference.
Please continue to keep us updated... while also not over promising on timelines. You don't even have a manufacturer lined up yet, so there's no way you can accurately estimate a shipping time frame. The two worst things you can do is fail to give us regular updates and to make timeline promises that don't/won't hold up. Be honest with yourselves and us. Updating us along the way and at each milestone is a far better way to let us know how things are going than to say you plan to ship this coming summer (or any time for that matter,) until you know things are really on track for shipping.
Thank you for checking in, @Tzfardaya @MOHAMMED A KHAN & @Dave W!
Update coming tomorrow!! Unfortunately Christmas is unlikely but we will explain in detail why and give an update on the expected timeline. We really appreciate your patience!
I'll assume this is not coming before Christmas? I can't remember if there was an update that changed delivery date, but can we get an update soon?
@creator, any updates?
How goes the beta tests?
Thanks for the reply. The url with my friend.
@Bob S. Thank you for replying!! @Adam Collins As was mentioned, we are working to get through beta testing quickly and have been refining where we need to so manufacturing will be as smooth as possible. We will post an update soon with an estimated delivery date. Our sincerest apologies for the delayed reply - please know we are working around the clock to get the highest quality product shipped in a timely manner.
Okay thank you.
Just below your question, Adam --
"delivery date will depend on how quickly we can get the beta test completed and how it goes."
I doubt much changed in three days, especially over the weekend.
@Creator is there a estimated shipping date yet?
@MOHAMMED A KHAN No please don't be worried! Our sincerest apologies for the delay - we are working hard to finish the beta test and are meeting with manufacturers. As @Tzfardaya said, delivery date will depend on how quickly we can get the beta test completed and how it goes. We will have an update on that soon!
@Abdul Mohammed Yes, please send him to the pre-order now link on this page! Or to our website - www.inirv.com
Please send us a message if you/he have any questions. Thank you!!
@creator, 12 days and no response? Should we be worried?
Abdul, send your friend to this page and he'll see the big pink and white "Pre-order Now" button up top.
Quick question... one my friend is intrested in buying a set for himself... where can he place the order?
I'd say it depends on how their beta testing goes.
@creator, what is the estimated delivery date?
@Ching Chung Ho We apologize for missing your comment!! Thank you for sharing this with us. The Klove knob is actually just a cooking timer, and doesn't allow for modulation of the burners or for automatic shut off.
@Kevin Ehl Yes, coming this week! We just produced our beta units and will be posting pictures of them as well. Appreciate the follow up and patience. Stay tuned!!
Thanks for the update. There is a Klove Knob appearing in Indiegogo recently, being a backer of Inirv React would like to have a comparison with it.
@TaeWooKIM We have an update scheduled for tomorrow!
@TaeWooKIM Thank you for your comment and follow up! We are in the final weeks of device development, which took a little longer than expected because we are trying to integrate a feature that will significantly increase battery life. We are currently speaking with several manufacturers and will decide on one shortly. Based on these conversations, we will have a better idea of the timeline. Please keep in mind that as with any hardware product with this complexity, there are manufacturing obstacles that are difficult to foresee as it is a very tedious process. However, we are taking every measure to mitigate any delays and will be transparent throughout the entire process. We will post an update in the coming weeks and provide more details. Hope this helps and appreciate your patience!
Are you well prepared for delivery in December?
Are there any changes?
Thank you for your comment @Dan Guliano, and for sharing your experience! We appreciate the offer and will reach back out when we have our beta units ready. We will post an update later this month on our progress and status of the beta test. Thanks again!
Team, my spouse FREQUENTLY walks away from our gas stove with a burner lit. If you need another Beta tester, happy to help (and it might just prevent something wicked bad from happening).
Thank you, Tzfardaya! We will reach out as we approach that phase.
Let me know if you need another beta tester.
@Tzfardaya Appreciate you checking in! We aren't quite at beta testing yet because we may have found a way to significantly increase battery life (which has required a little more development). Once we work through this we will start beta! We will post an update in the next few weeks as we approach it. Thank you!
