Yes. RuuviTag is available for shipment internationally. We will ship from the U.S. or Thailand depending the location of the customer. We're also investigating a possibility to ship from an EU country to EU customers, but we cannot make a promise of this one.
We are not charging VAT. Ruuvi is a Finnish company, but a U.S. based company runs the campaign. However if the tax customs of your country requires VAT, you will have to pay the fee once the shipment is arrives in your country.
We're also investigating a possibility to ship from an EU country to EU customers, but we cannot make a promise of this one. But you'll get your Tags, that's for sure! One way or another :)
A weather station and Eddystone beacon that have been mentioned are two applications and there will be more to come. Because everything is open-source, there will be so much more software availability in the future as new developers are join the community. We are also very excited of what the Web Bluetooth has to offer in the near future.
Yes. iBeacon is Apple's proprietary beacon protocol. Similar to Eddystone. It is supported but because this campaign is targeted mainly for makers and hobbyists, we decided to concentrate more on the Eddystone (because it's open). Please also note that Eddystone is supported by iOS.
We have an active community and collaborative community on Slack with all the sources on GitHub. Every new member is welcome to join the community! Request an invite to our Slack team and let’s talk more there.
At the moment RuuviTags are on pre-production stage and the certification tests aren't completed yet. However, we are working with certification laboratories already and are aiming to finish the testing before shipping the devices. But because we cannot make a promise of this, please note that the devices on this campaign are for engineering development, demonstration and/or evaluation purposes.
You can. Many coin cell batteries work up to 70°C and even higher temperature versions are available (CR2450HR and CR2450HR-Ex for example, from -40°C up to +125°C). But please note the electronics are specified to work between -40°C and +85°C.
Yes, it's possible to get an additional development board. Just increase your pledge with $20 and email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) that you want to have one. No additional shipping fees required.
If you would like to get 13 Tags with all the sensors, you can add (according the price list) $19.90 * 3 = $59.70 = ~$60. Add $60 because the total price has to be rounded. So the total would be $199 + shipping + $60. No additional shipping fees required.
But if you do this, you need to also send us an email (email@example.com) and confirm you want 13 devices, not 10.
