Thank you very much!
Backer #55 from Denmark, still no shipping notification, and still nothing recieved...
Hello, as backer #595 from Switzerland, would you please confirm that we are "included" in Europe shipment or do we have to expect additional waiting time ? Regards Marc
Got my Sky2 in November. Storm cam on Wednesday and the Mast came the next day. I'm in New Jersey.
Backer #291 here. Sky2s received but still no Storm or notice of shipment. ??
I was second early bird for the Kickstarter. I received the first half months ago. I have been waiting for the rest. I live in Canada and have not heard nothing. Could you please check when I might receive it.
Just received mine last week. I have four other weather systems on my home and have ran out of room for this one. But will work on getting it up and on-line soon. I like to thank Bloomsky for all they have done and hope they will grow. Thanks again.
Any ETA on deliveries to Canada? Is it the same timeframe as USA?
Shippjng information does not come....
Still waiting for my 2 Storms and 2 mounts. I am sure an update at least one a month would be welcome by all.
still nothing received in Australia... any update for the delivery plan?
Storm arrived in New Mexico yesterday; tripod today.
Backer #463 US. SKY2 arrived in mid November. Storm due tomorrow.
Backer #752 here. Nothing received in Brazil... Any news for South Americans?
According to update #20 on January 18th shipping was underway for North America. I am in Canada and it is over a month later and nothing has arrived yet. Any ideas or comments?
Any update on when I should expect Storm/mount/tripod to be shipped? Waiting...Waiting.... (Ireland). Communication is non-existent
Got my Sk2 some weeks ago, still missing mount and storm. Have 7 shipping IDs left without update.
An update would be awesome instead of reading 900 comments about products missing/received
Still nothing for me in the UK and another missed promise. Why not just provide us with regular updates.... it's not hard!
Hi need to change my address please
Hi. Backer #1156 here... Still nothing despite multiple promises since 1 Nov, including in direct messages, that shipping would be imminent... Lies lies lies.
Im backer #2277 in thailand you said a month ago that backers here should receive a shipping notice within 2 weeks..........that was a month ago.... any updates on this?
I am backer #1,266
Today, I received the Storm portion of my order.
As of today, the full package of my Sky2/Mount/Storm has been delivered.
The network connection was very easy. Right now, the Storm unit is in the house charging, and is about 1/3 charged.
The unit is talking to the Sky2, and both are reporting to the app, and online. I almost cannot wait to connect the unit outside, as we are having weather in San Diego, a real rarity.
anything regarding shipment to southamerica???
Nothing France !!!!!!!!!
Production must be real slow. I got my Sky2 in November. This week, I got 2 notifications for deliveries. First for the Storm and then the Mast the next day. Both are in transit. I'm supposed to get them next week. I'm in New Jersey.
Any news on Mast shipments?!?
@Aaron, so im not the only one each time we get some hectic weather lately thinking wish i had my BS now.. lol
Could anyone who has received a tripod tell me what the diameter of the tube is? Especially the tube where you attached the solar mounts. Is it 1" inch or 1 1/2" inches. I can get a tripod but sure of the size. Thank you to everyone.
@Strat @Leif, yes it is frustrating that we are about 4 months late, but I can see new devices coming online in Australia (by exploring on the app) so I at least know the product exists and are being shipped and I haven't just thrown my money away. My main frustration is that we have been having some really wild and unusual weather here in Adelaide over the last 4 months and I would have loved to capture it. Oh well, maybe I'll have it in time for Autumn, to see the leaves change colour and fall
@Aaron, @Leif looks like we just have to keep waiting.. I'm a SEB SKYPRO KIT backer and was also eagerly waiting for the shipping notice the past few weeks as per the last update.
So Weather Underground now has Storm data. :)
So Weather Underground no has Storm data. :)
@Oliver Mathes : LOLWUT?
What I understood this is the second time BS produces a device just targeted at the US market (ie. just a US plug and no other options), although the psu is from a Chinese factory where they probably make all international plugs for other companies.
This US only attitude and the total lack of communication with the delivery (and its issues) will make me reconsider ever backing BS in the future.
And a more cynical remark: in hindsight the abbreviation for the company already gave it away.
Anyone else having issues with the Sky2 going offline after a few days of running? (Power cycling it, fixes the problem for a few days)
@Aaron, @Strat : I'm an appreciation early bird kit backer, and i've still not heard anything about shipments. I havent received anything at all. I think the logistics for this Kickstarter have been majorly fumbled. It's approaching nearly a month since the last update promising shipping notifications in 2 weeks. The update on 19th of Jan + 2 weeks makes their promise for shipping notifications at 2nd Feb. It's now middle of Feb and absolutely nothing. I was so pumped for this Kickstarter, but after so little communication it's put me right off supporting Bloomsky.
Here is the response that I got from BloomSky about the Power Adapter issue (US Only).
Subject: Wrong Power Adapter
FEB 09, 2017 | 10:21PM PST
James W. replied:
I am very sorry, but no international plugs were made for our SKY 2 or Storm devices. My only suggestion would be to buy a converter from US to EU plugs.
Yes the issue with the "US Only" Power Prongs on a modular adapter is a real shame for all international backers.
I am backer #1,266. ...
I have received, quite a while back, my Sky Pro 2. ... About a month ago, I received mounting bracket for the Storm portion of my order.
Just a few minutes ago, I received the shipping notice for something else that weighs 4 pounds. ... I think my storm is on its way! ... Yay!
I had to cancel my delivery, it look like a good product but just very bad logistics on the delivery, at least i got a refund of 100%
I received a package, with which I am only partly happy. Partly, because half of it is missing. I am still waiting for:
second solar panel
Please give me an update on when I can receive these things? And please make it as fast as possible, I have been waiting long enough!
And for France ?
For your information...
Delivery to Switzerland:
UPS Ship Notification 16.01.2017
UPS Delivery : 06.02.2017
Only the sky2, mount and solar panel
I'm still waiting for the Storm and second solar panel..
But It works well: Geneva Bloom Sky2 AM....
Your not the last Aussie guy, I'm still waiting on an early bird Skypro kit, have received nothing as yet
hi, same problematic, no mail, no information after 3 week
It's been more than 3 weeks since last email informing that delivery should occur within the next 2 weeks... never even received a mail about shipment label as stated in the news...
When can I expect my delivery in France please???
Still waiting for my skypro.. I think I'm the last guy to receive it in AU?
My Bloomsky cannot stay connected to the wifi. My original Bloomsky from the first campaign is still going strong.
How about just use the solar panel to charge the unit? I didn't use the plug at all.
Received my sky2, solar panel but came with a US plug.
Asked them if they could send a UK plug but they told me 'this is a US product so no other plugs were manufactured or will be to go with it'
Maybe they should have mentioned this at the start or like I have purchased below send a travel adaptor with it.
So looks like you will have to buy either an adapter or like I have done is purchase a US to UK travel adaptor.
