Change of antenna design and schedule
Many of you have been asking when Qmote will be shipped to you guys, and we want to be open with you about our change of plan. We were very close to mass production, but we would like to make a few improvements to ensure that we are delivering the best for you, rather than rushing out the product.
The main reason to this schedule change is our decision to alter Qmote's antenna design so as to improve the signal range. With the new antenna, Qmote can provide a much more stable connectivity. And it will surely offer a better user experience, which is what we care the most.
Mechanical design is also involved in the change of antenna system. We will need some more time to have the new design ready for production because it takes a couple of weeks to prepare new materials. In the mean time, the manufacturer will make a few new samples (which also takes time) for us to make sure the mechanical change won't affect the outlook of Qmote.
We sincerely apologize for this hold-up. We will update you the new delivery schedule very soon after discussing with the manufacturer. And we promise to be honest with you about any delays.
Thank you very much for understanding.
