Dear All,

First of all, thank you backers for all your support and the messages with great suggestion.

We have updated two functions this week:

1. Smart Power Strip can be compatible with SmartThings! After receiving many requests from the SmartThings community earlier, we got in touch with SmartThings. Received their hub last week, worked on some testing, and discussed with the SmartThings team on how their app UI layout would be when having Smart Power Strip as an add-on device. And now, YES, we are making this confirmation: Smart Power Strip can be compatible with SmartThings. (We know it took quite awhile for us to do this update, but we want to make sure everything goes right before making the announcement) 

Which reward to choose for SmartThings version? To make it simple for current/new Backers, we would send out a survey at the end and ask if you want your Smart Power Strip to be a SmartThings version or not. So, All of the rewards (including master/slave & International plug...) would have an option to choose for SmartThings version upon request. 

Need multiple? No problem. Pledge for Combo (2X) or Room(3X) or send us a message if you want to discuss more!

 Testing the SmartThings hub

Smart Power Strip + SmartThings

2. Monitor electricity usage and cost for each socket.

Lastly, we have a bit more than 10 days left. We believe our funding goal will be met at the end if there are more people know about us. Please help us spread the word out!

Just simply click the "Share" button and "Tweet" button under the bottom left corner of our Kickstarter video, and say something good about it. 

Don't forget to let your friends or people who own the SmartThings to support us!

Thank you!!!
