What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

OVAL is plug & play. You can be up & running in minutes.

  • No subscription fees ever (only for Kickstarter backers)
  • No installation
  • No home integration
  • No other smart products needed
  • Sensors are mobile and can be moved easily
  • No camera or microphone
  • No 3rd party being notified

The OVAL Smart Home includes everything you need. Build a custom smart home that works for you... one object at a time. 

Dozens of OVAL Sensors can be added to one Gateway. Please view our other rewards for multi-sensor packages.

OVAL APP

Controls everything OVAL. You can view the current status of your sensors or change your settings from wherever you are.

OVAL Gateway

Wireless and talks to your OVAL sensors. Plug it in with the power supply (included), & connect to your wifi network.

OVAL Sensor

Small, wireless & battery-powered, OVAL sensors can be placed anywhere around your home. Please visit the FAQ for more info.

OVAL Water Sensor

This small sensor attachment is only needed when detecting water. 

If you own other smart home products like Amazon Echo or Google Home, you can connect them to OVAL. Ask what the temperature is in the baby's room or be alerted if there's water in the basement.

And with IFTTT support, you can connect to other home automation devices for even more possibilities. 

We first launched OVAL 1.0 through crowdfunding and shipped in January 2017 to hundreds of backers across 32 countries.

Read a review on OVAL 1.0 below. OVAL 2.0 will include integration with other smart products to complete your home automation needs.

Learn more about our team & everything OVAL on our FAQ page.

Risks and challenges

We've done it once before, and we can do it again.

We have spent over half a decade building OVAL's company, team and vision for a smarter sensor. And, our team has learned a lot.

We've learned how to work together better and faster, and take full advantage of our talented and diverse global team whose expertise spans so many areas.

We have also been immersed in everything from the latest in smart home technology, software and firmware development, and advancements in manufacturing a product like our OVAL Smart Home.

Our core team is committed to OVAL 2.0. Their passion and hard-work in creating OVAL got us to our first release, and will carry us to our second.

--

Even though the hardware, firmware and software changes in OVAL 2.0 were substantial enough to stop our production line on OVAL 1.0 and essentially start over, most of the time-consuming and costly set-up tasks relating to producing a product like OVAL are in place.

From the manufacturing facility to the back-end app development, we already have a solid base to work from.

Having originally launched OVAL 1.0 on crowdfunding, and knowing the level of transparency it requires, we have learned to better communicate with people who believe in us and support this venture.

We look forward to meeting more of you and working hard to bring you a better, stronger smart sensor!
