Out of the Ashes

Posted by Think Automatic (Creator)

My most recent update from last fall was entitled "The End of the Line for the Luminode". Thank you so much to our backers for the many kind words of support, condolences, and encouragement. I can't tell you how much that means. Thank you.   

The good news today though is that despite my last update, the Luminode lives on! I am pleased to announce that we are finalizing a merger agreement with the innovative home automation startup called Otto.   

We have already begun making design modifications to the Luminode in order to finally put these hardware challenges to rest and resubmit for UL approval once again later this year. Together as Otto we believe we are in position to finally knock this out of the park through our shared common vision of bringing home automation into the mainstream.   

Although my offer of refunds to Luminode backers and pre-orders still stands, I am pleased to offer in lieu of a refund a comparable Otto DIY starter kit once available later this year. Whichever you choose there is no action to take now. Individual followups to come later.   

Thank you for your continuing patience and support!

      I'm glad to hear that all your hard work will continue on. It would have been such a waste if it never made it to market.
