One Second Faster
We’re really happy to say that within the next two weeks, we hope to have fulfilled all of our Kickstarter shipments! We’ve now shipped out close to 1500 Ubis and many hundred of those will be landing at their destinations in the coming days.
There may be a few Ubis here and there that may take longer to make it out, but we hope to get everything squared away. Color selection and plug types have a tendency to get mixed up in the shipment but if this is the case, just send us a note at email@example.com.
If you experience any trouble setting up your Ubi or getting it connected, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org or support.theubi.com.
We have a lot to tell you about...
Biggest Ubi Software Update Yet...
We’ve churned out many software updates but one of the most impactful is about to be pushed down to devices. The new update will:
- Allow you to play a song to the end (after a brief teaser of the song so you know it’s the one you want)
- Shave up to one second off the responsiveness of the Ubi trigger
We’ve also implemented the beta alarm clock app that allows you to setup quick reminders and alarms through your Ubi:
- OK Ubi... remind me in 10 minutes to take the pot off the stove
- OK Ubi... wake me up at 7 AM tomorrow
- OK Ubi... remind me every day at 3 PM to take my vitamins
For those using the Ubi Portal, we’ve also sped up it’s responsiveness, making creating custom behaviours a bit faster. We’ve got tons more in the works so make sure to keep your Ubis plugged in and connected so they can get smarter over time.
SmartThings Beta Integration is Here!
We’ve been testing out the SmartThings integration with the Ubi with a handful of backers and are now ready to open this up to a larger group. If you have SmartThings and are already registered on the Ubi Portal and want to try out the integration, use the form below and we’ll get you setup quickly.
We want your videos!
If you have videos using the Ubi, we’d love to see them! Send us the link and we’ll feature them in our next update. Here’s one from a competition we were in...
What’s coming up?
Beyond the standard updates of shipping and new feature / improvement rollouts, we’ll be launching a new program in the coming weeks that you, as a Kickstarter backer, will be part of first. Keep an eye out!
