Stretch Goals for COVI

Hey Guys,

We’re just past the halfway point in our COVI Kickstarter campaign and are already well over 150% funded! We want to say thank you for your incredible support in making this next step for Senic a reality by sharing some updates with you.

     

STRETCH GOAL

Last week we asked what you would most love to see as a COVI stretch goal. We really appreciate your feedback and are excited to announce that, based on that input, we will be creating a variation of the COVI base - meet the new brass-colored COVI. 

Brass COVI
Brass COVI

If we reach 200%, backers will have the option to select dark silver or brass COVI. This special edition design will only be available if we reach 200% funding, so help us spread the word!

NUIMO AND COVI TOGETHER

A lot of you have been asking if you can use NUIMO with COVI - and the answer is yes! You can get more out of NUIMO than ever before by using it alongside COVI. 

COVI will also act as a hub for NUIMO, allowing you to set automations and control more devices. COVI is also a smart light that you can control with NUIMO. 

    

Our vision has always been to create a seamless smart home experience - allowing you to choose between a voice, touch or screen-based interface is a key part of this. 

ADD A NUIMO?                             

Interested in getting another NUIMO for a second room or to mount? We are also allowing backers of the COVI campaign to increase their pledge by 140 EUR to get a NUIMO. This is the lowest price we will offer for NUIMO as a huge thank you for everyone who has contributed so far!! To increase your pledge on the COVI campaign to get a NUIMO, simply follow these steps:

  • Go to the COVI page. 
  • Click the green "Manage your pledge" button in the top right corner of the COVI Kickstarter page (make sure that you are logged into your account). 
  • On the next page, select the blue "change your pledge" button and you will be able to make a new selection from our available perks. 
  • To add a NUIMO, increase your pledge by 140 EUR and we will ship a NUIMO together with your pledge.

NEW ON THE BLOG: WHY DO WE BELIEVE IN OPEN SOURCE?

By now, you’ve read that we are building COVI on an open source platform. But what does it mean to be open source and why should you care if you’re not a developer? There are a lot of reasons.

      Hey @David - want to send us an e-mail? We're trying very hard to solve this problem as cheaply as possible with the hub at production cost. Unfortunately its an industry-wide issue that connectivity and protocols are holding back a lot of the interoperability that should be a given in smart home. We'd love to talk further about how we can help you with the LIFX/HUE combination - let us know at hi@senic.com

      I have to say I feel left behind.. After having backed for 2 Nuimos first time around and gave extensive feedback, I’ve never been able to use them as intended, or at all for that matter.. I’m not trying to be dramatic saying this, but I’m currently in a very tight and sub-optimal situation where I simply cannot afford to pay for “the cure..” even with the special option you guys created for us..

      I would still love to use the two Nuimos as originally intended, which was one to control our living room lights (a LIFX/HUE combi), and the other to assign Automater & Alfred scripts to, so I can improve my workflow for repeating actions...

      Any suggestions to what I should do with my two “hockey pucks”?
      Any suggestions?
