A big THANK YOU for everyone who backed C1pro! We have officially hit the funding goal!
Many backers said they want C1pro as soon as possible. We have discussed with the factory about earlier production for the C1pro. As a stretch goal, we are now able to provide early production/delivery with an additional $20,000 pledge. So with our stretch goal of $50,000 we will be able to SHIP all Kickstarter pledged products by the end of July!
Please help us spread the word!
The Homtime C1pro is the definition of “multifunctional” – it’s got the look and feel of a digital alarm clock but is for so much more than waking up. Not only does it display time and temperature, but you can also use it to charge your USB devices or pair it with Bluetooth® electronics to project audio through its built-in speakers. It’s a 4-in-1 device designed for personalization. A brightness adjustment setting allows you to minimize glow at night, and a convenient microSD card slot allows you to set alarms with your favorite tunes. With a compact size and good sound quality, the C1pro’s user-friendly design will be useful from the time you wake up until you go to sleep. It’s not just a gadget – it’s a bedside companion.
Take a closer look
- Simultaneous dual-port charging
Many multifunctional devices these days boast a charging feature, but they’re actually too basic to handle two devices at once. That’s why we’ve not only included two USB ports, but also made sure they can handle devices that require different charging speeds. A 1A port for smartphones and a faster 2.1A port for tablets will ensure you’re never low on power.
- Personalized alarm sounds
Upgrade your life by turning harsh alarm tones into pleasant get-up-and-go tunes. Keep the C1pro at your bedside, and use a microSD card to personalize your alarms with your favorite songs.
- Super convenient time-set button
Turn the rotary dial to set the time and alarm. It's that easy! We know how annoying it is to repeatedly press and hold a button for a long time to set the time or an alarm. So, we’ve made it much easier – just turn the rotary dial to the desired time, press “set” and you’re done.
- Brightness adjustment for around-the-clock use
We all have different sleeping habits, and sometimes the glow of a clock’s LCD can be a little too bright at night. That’s why we’ve added another function to the rotary dial – it also serves as a 4-level brightness adjuster so you can wake the C1pro up when you get up and dim its light at night .
- Bedside Bluetooth speaker
Play your favorite tunes with the Bluetooth speaker or listen to an audio book without leaving your bed.
Whether you're syncing via Bluetooth to use the speaker, or connecting via USB to charge, every function is plug-and-play.
The Homtime C1pro is an all-in-one gadget to keep by your bedside. It can wake you up, play your favorite tunes, charge your digital devices simultaneously, display various brightness levels and even tell you the temperature – it’s got the capability of multiple plugged bedside devices in one gadget that eliminates the tangle of cords.
The C1pro combines a convenient and sleek design with user-friendly technology.
Our team of designers and audio tech experts have worked on this project for over 6 months, developing several prototypes and subjecting them to rigorous tests. The Homtime C1pro you see here is the result of our hard work, and manufacturing is ready to begin at production facilities.
Suppliers of high-quality materials and manufacturing partners are waiting for the signal to begin full-scale production. We have certification experts and distributors at the ready, too. But, we still need our most vital support to get the ball rolling – backers like YOU.
We’re a tight group of friends with various relevant areas of expertise, hailing mostly from fields in industrial design and home audio equipment. We’re young (well, most of us!), dynamic and creative, and we came together to realize a common goal: to create brilliant devices that make time at home more relaxing and enjoyable, whether it’s spent with family, friends or alone.
Why we need your support
Manufacturing any product on a large scale means a large amount of funds. This is where your support comes in, and your support means so much more than funding. By buying a C1pro, you not only give us valuable market feedback – that consumers desire our product – but you also get a chance to tell us what you like or don’t like about it. That means that your support not only enables us to make as many C1pros as possible, but also to gather valuable market feedback that we can use when designing the next user-friendly Homtime product.
By contributing to our project, here are some of the rewards you can expect:
We, the members of the design and development team, would like to thank everyone for their help in making this project a reality. We are thankful for this opportunity to interact with an amazing community of people who express an active interest in making technology devices available for all to enjoy.
Risks and challenges
As with all new projects, there are a few risks and challenges involved with the making of the C1pro. Take a look at the explanations below to get a more detailed idea of what’s involved.
We rigorously test our prototypes to ensure that they are ready for production and stay true to the original design when handed over to the manufacturer. However, the C1pro may require a few changes to meet manufacturing and certification requirements. We will keep our supporters updated in the event that any changes are made during manufacturing, and we will ensure that they do not affect the original design.
Large-scale manufacturing of even the simplest of products is a time-sensitive and complex process. The people, parts and processes involved must all perform in adherence to standards, and even one hitch in this system may cause a serious delay. Should anything of this nature happen, we promise to exert our best efforts to fix the situation, and we will keep our supporters posted regarding any changes or developments in the production process.
