Back on track and what we’re up to
Last week the shipments of the Almond+ resumed and although this was a bit later than we anticipated, by the time you’re reading this, we’ve shipped over one third of all the Almond+’s.
Long story short, production is up and running at full speed and we expect to have all of the North American Almond+’s shipped around the 20th of August (all sensor/colour combinations). This means that in about three weeks time we’ll start shipping the Almond+ to backers that pledged for EU units (all sensor/colour combinations) followed by all remaining regions, i.e. Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan. The Canadian units will be shipped via EMS starting the week of the 18th of August, but they can take a little bit longer to arrive as EMS isn’t quite as fast as TNT.
Some of you have asked why address changes etc. haven’t been updated at shop.securifi.com. We exported all the data from shop.securifi.com at the end of June and since then all changes has been done in our internal system, as we’ve added things like tracking numbers etc. which we couldn’t do otherwise.
The software team are busy working on the next firmware and we’ve released a beta version, but we have found a few bugs we need to fix before we can release it. We’ll make an update here on Kickstarter once it’s ready. We’ve had a lot of questions about the iOS app and it’s not quite available yet, but we’ve submitted it to Apple this week for approval. We know many of you are waiting for it and we’re doing our very best to get it out as quickly as we can, but now it’s really up to how quick the process over at Apple takes. We’re also about to release an updated version of the Android app that fixes a few minor bugs and adds a couple of features and we expect this to be available next week.
There’s still a lot of work left for us to do on the Almond+, but we hope that we’ll be able to work with all of you to make the Almond+ a product that everyone will be happy with. One of the things we’ll be doing is to run regular survey’s asking what feature all of you want us to work on next. Inasmuch as we have a roadmap, we also want to make sure we prioritize it based on your wants and needs.
A call for airbnb hosts
We wanted to ask if we have any backers that are offering short term rental properties, as we have a cool new feature we’d like to share with you. Please send us a PM here on Kickstarter if you’re interested in finding out more.
