About this project

  A SMART REMOTE CONTROL FOR YOU HOME 

FetchitGO is a simple and sleek pad of smart connected buttons that allow you and your family to create shortcuts to your favorite tasks & actions, without ever having to touch your phone!

 

YOUR DAY MADE SIMPLER...

  

AS EASY AS PUSH A BUTTON

 

With the push of a button, you can create a task to play music when your wake up, call a cab, or just turn the lights on. The best part is that unlike other wireless buttons, FetchitGO works independently of your phone. That way your whole family can share in all of the great possibilities! Here are some of the things FetchitGO will do for you….

 

  THE POSSIBILITY OF FETCHITGO IS BEYOND YOUR IMAGINATION  

 

Wake up in the morning with FetchitGO! Just a quick push & swipe could start the coffee machine while you hit the snooze button.

 

 

With FetchitGO, control of all the smart devices in your home is right at your fingertips. You can put the smart pad wherever you want, so that it’s convenient for you! When movie night comes around, you’ll have no problem setting the mood, or adjusting the sound.

 

 

Need your husband or wife to pick up a few things from the grocery store on the way home? FetchitGO will help you handle it! With just a push and swipe, you can share grocery lists, items and chores, to get that “Honey-do list” DONE

 

 

Every family has that person that is constantly searching for their phone on the way out. With FetchitGO, you can signal the phone to sound the alarm. Problem Solved!

 

 

Do you have loved ones in your life without a smartphone? We all have at some point, and for them, sometimes technology can be a little scary. FetchitGO makes it simple for EVERYONE to access all the things a smart phone can do like set medication reminders or even call the grandkids.

 Works with (and many, many....many more)

 

 

 Here is an engaging video to show that it is very simple to setup

Download the App “MyFetchitGO” app from the App Store or Play Store or from our download link. Or, just access it as a Web App at. You can read the see how simple it is to setup and use and read our blogs at to get more insights into the product. Tantiv4 stands behind its' promise of security and an affordable scalability of its' solutions.

 

We have teamed up with IFTTT to give your FetchitGO device the tools to do more work for you! IFTTT works by creating “applets” and “recipes” that allow your IOT devices to play together. This means you can control almost anything in the most flexible way. It is easy to setup and even easier to operate.

FetchitGO applets are listed in Tantiv4 owned Thinga channel at IFTTT. 

Easy to setup

FetchitGO works Out of Box. Each device automatically connects to the gateway. No complex WiFi setup steps to follow. 

Designed for Privacy and Security 

We designed the device grounds up and implemented DTLS Tunnel from device to the server. Physical buttons mean that there is no privacy concern of your conversations being monitored continuously on the cloud like in Alexa. You do not need to remember magic voice phrases for Google Home and risk TV inadvertently ordering toy dolls for you ;-). No more trying to talk to dumb machines in a noisy environment and being humiliated by them, no more tyranny of speaking exactly for the voice recognition.

Even simpler to operate

Finally, you can have all the tech challenged people around, start to enjoy the fruits of your labor of putting the home automation devices. There is no need to have multiple apps to be installed for controlling the shared family resources like lights in a room (Lifx, Hue, Wemo) on a personal device like your phone. FetchitGO makes home automation projects move from DIY to mainstream while keeping your phone personal. 

Efficient and Affordable

16 user configurable buttons mean that you do not need to spend hundreds of dollars to buy individual buttons like Flic or toggle multiple controller Apps on your phone. Physical buttons are also faster and more accurate than voice commands. FetchitGO delivers a scalable cutting edge solution which also happens to be affordable. You define action attached to each button and put your handwriting (or stickers) marks to remember it. We strongly believe that putting your personal mark on technology humanizes it and creates a personal connection. 

  

Also good for Raspberry PI and Arduino DIY and maker projects. Tantiv4 is a supporter of the open source community.

 

  

 

  

 

    

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We have done about a year worth of prototyping effort and field testing to make sure that we take away the technology risk from the project. We are confident that we would put a quality product in the hands of our customers. We have already put out the “MyFetchitGO” app on the App Store, Play Store and is also available as a Web App at https://fetchitgo.tantiv4.com. You can use the App to experience how the device would feel like, almost to the last detail. Even as you wait for it, you will find that App is immensely useful to you, as it can consolidate many IOT devices in a single app. Also, it reduces the risk as you can already understand the behavior of FetchitGO and assured of the stability of the software. We take immense pride in our UX team, who have helped come up with such a simplified interface.

However, there are still some software features under development, for example- “medication reminder-lite”, "call a ride" which need to be completed and delivered within the project delivery timeline by our incredibly talented but small software team.

The main risk to the project is to handle the complex supply-chain and deliver the product on the promised schedule. We have used conservative project management techniques and build a sufficient buffer to guarantee the promised KS dates.
