About

Q & A from some of the community members

- What kind of display you are going to use ?

Thank you for interest and questions for SmartTock! We will be using an LCD screen, they have longevity and great quality. We are still working on screen size with our manufacturer, we are hoping they can accommodate the size we need(want) for our price point. We are looking for great quality but also cost efficient.  Actual screen size may vary and be slightly smaller approximately by an inch or 2 at the most but we definitely will update on kickstarter once we know for sure. Most readily available LCD screens are available between 18in to 24in with 1080p which we are looking for.

- Auto updates for weather over WiFi - what is the source? or is there a option with sensors ?

For auto weather updates you will enter your city and state upon set up of theof the device and it will use the weather app. As of now there are not any options with sensors.

 - How is this display powered - Battery's or live-power (outlet 115V) or solar-panel ?

As far as power source we will not be using battery powered as the primary source of power. We are testing the idea of having the screen switch to black and white in the event of loss of Power to conserve energy and have a lithium battery kick in as a back up, to keep the clock on until power is restored.

Great questions and thank you for your interest,

SmartTock Team

The Problem 

Typical wall clocks have the same boring look and only tell tell time with the same three needles. There is only one feature of most wall clocks, telling time. Plus you have to change the batteries out often, as well having to reset the time every daylight savings time.

The Solution

SmarTock is designed to keep you moving forward. The world's smartest wall clock has been crafted in a simple yet elegant manner at 18 in (height); 14 in (width);it will look sleek and stylish on your wall. Imagine the functionality of a smart watch but for your wall. In addition to looking good it will also have several functions. Live updates from the wifi keep it up to date on the weather and it simulates the time of day or night it is. For instance at night, the clock may display the moon and stars, and in the morning it might display a sunrise.

Connect a music device through blue tooth and play the music from the speakers on the bottom. 

And of course it tells time too, choose between several different clock wallpapers to math your mood.

Risks and challenges

As with any technology there can problems getting everything to run smoothly at first. Moving from a prototyping to mass producing products is a big step for any start up. We have in depth project plans and believe we have all the key resources in place to produce a quality product, however we might have some surprises along the way. We are confident that the team we have in place will work hard to guarantee a great product in a timely matter.
