Sensor purchase survey
We apologize for the interruption of our regular schedule, but we wanted to give you a heads up that we’ve sent out a survey asking you to fill in some details with regards to potential interest in purchasing ZigBee sensors (2.4GHz, can be used globally) that will ship alongside your Almond+. The content of the survey is included below, as well as a link to the survey itself. We’ve done this as some of you have unsubscribed from SurveyMonkey which is the tool we use to send surveys and as such we can’t reach you. There are also some pictures of the sensors on offer at the bottom of this update, as well as pricing details. Note: The survey will end Monday the 14th of April 04:00 UTC (12:00 noon UTC+8 Taiwan time).
Edit: Sorry, but we removed the link to the survey due to spam submissions, so please use the link in the survey email we sent if you're a backer. If you didn't receive the survey, please let us know and we'll send you a link to the survey.
Due to a lot of requests on Kickstarter for an option to purchase sensors with your Almond+, we’ve put together a survey to see if there’s enough interest from our backer community for us to arrange a selection of sensors that we would be able to ship with your Almond+. This is not a binding agreement to make a purchase, but we hope that everyone interested in purchasing sensors with their Almond+ answers this survey in such a way that we can base our orders on it.
The sensors on offer are ZigBee sensors that operate at 2.4GHz. We can’t offer Z-Wave sensors due to there being way too many regional variations. Note that any mains powered sensors would be for US style NEMA 1-15P type sockets only, as our sensor partner doesn’t offer any other power plug options at this point in time.
For those of you not interested in ordering any sensors, your Almond+ will ship as soon as it's ready. However, we want to be clear that ordering sensors means a slight delay in shipping your Almond+ to you, as our sensor partner won’t be able to deliver the sensors to us until the end of May. However, it also means that there would be no additional shipping charges, as we’d ship the sensors alongside your Almond+ at no extra cost.
The pricing of the sensors will be as per below:
Door/Window sensor - $25
PIR motion sensor - $30
Binary power on/off switch $30
Flood sensor - $25
Siren - $40
Key fob - $15
