Wio Link - 3 Steps. 5 Minutes. Build Your IoT Applications!

$172,422

2,598

Wio Link is designed to simplify your IoT development. It is an ESP8266 based open-source Wi-Fi development board to create IoT applications by virtualizing plug-n-play modules to RESTful APIs with mobile APPs.

The traditional methodology of building IoT applications consists of electronic engineering, micro-controller programming, network programming, IoT protocols handling and application development. Every step involves various hardware and software knowledge and challenges.

This time, we define a new way to create IoT applications. 

No hardware programming. No breadboard. No jumper wires. No soldering. 

3 steps. 5 minutes. Build your own IoT applications!

Thank you so much for supporting Wio Link!  

Here comes our stretch goals and let us know what do you expect for the next! :-)

Visual Configuration

Wio Link provides simple visual configuration via mobile APPs to replace the complex micro-controller programming. Drag and drop the sensor tags to certain pins then you can visually set up the hardware.

 

OTA (Over-The-Air) Firmware Updates

Wio Link compiles firmware through cloud and can do OTA (Over-The-Air) firmware updates. All the hardware libraries are ready in the cloud and you can proceed with software and applications development directly.


Plug-n-Play Groves

Wio Link connects to the large library of Grove modules. Grove is a family of plug and play, open-source sensors and actuators with standard interfaces as well as various functions. Much like Lego™, it takes an approach of building blocks to assemble a project. No breadboard. No jumper wires. No soldering. 

Note: By now there have been 30+ Grove modules compatible with Wio Link and you can find most of them in the Rewards. We're working to add more continuously. 


IFTTT Application

Wio Link provides basic IFTTT (if-this-then-that) applications for you to interact with friends through Seeed IFTTT Channel. Make the LED strip light up in random colors or set up a reminder of wearing more clothes when it becomes colder. You could create more with Wio Link.

Android & iOS APPs 

Wio Link mobile APPs can be used on both Android and iOS devices. 

RESTful APIs

RESTful API resources let you develop IoT applications easily with the “visualized” sensors and actuators.

 Come and pick up your own package of Wio Link! We have provided the single pack and double pack of Wio Link development boards, the five  different themes of Grove kits and three large sets for friends, workshops and hackathons. There must be a suitable for you.

We've also developed some cute accessories of Wio Link. Just add the amounts to your pledge then we'll send you the mousepads or T-shirts together with the rewards. Please kindly be noted we'll ship the badges and stickers as giveaways to every backer and thanks for your ongoing support! :-)

Risks and challenges

The performance of Wio Link is fully qualified and verified by more than 100 alpha users. Currently it's in the process of CE, FCC, IC compliance and expect to receive certificates in the earlier Dec. The production will be kicked off right after the campaign is completed and we anticipate to ship all the rewards Feb, 2016. And our trustful family member — Agile Manufacturing Center will help fulfil all the quality and quantity requirements on time.

International Logistics

We're proud to have Seeed fans in over 200 countries. We have shipped our products worldwide since 2008. If shipping issues come up, our expert logistics team will help solve problems and deliver Wio Link onto your hands. Please note that you may be responsible for duties, fees and taxes applicable to your region.

Forecasting risk

We’ve done our very best to forecast demand and create a solid production plan with our Agile Manufacturing Center. We’ve dealt with lots of manufacturing projects successfully from Kickstarter and we believe we can handle unexpected events.

Technical support

If you have questions at any time, during or after the campaign has closed, you can always reach us at support.seeedstudio.com/.
