We will be relaunching our Kickstarter campaign, which you can find by clicking here: tempi.vencipio.com
You cannot measure the immediate temperature around you using most Smartphones. That’s why we created Tempi. It’s your personal thermometer when you’re at home or on the go.
Tempi is an accessory for your Bluetooth enabled smart device – like the iPhone, iPod and android devices. You simply pair Tempi with your phone using Bluetooth, and the temperature is displayed on Tempi’s free app. Tempi measures temperatures as low as -30ºC (-22ºF) and as high as 85°C (185°F).
Tempi answers a typical question: “I wonder
what the temperature is where I’m sitting, walking, sleeping, skiing… etc?” Or
“I wonder what the temperature is where my baby is sleeping or outside early in
the morning? Tempi was created because, we believe, nothing beats knowing
what the temperature is in your immediate surroundings.
So stop using old technology. Tempi is the smart way to get your personal temperature.
As seen on:
There are two ways you use Tempi.
You can wear it on the go,
or use the base and place it anywhere you like to measure temperature. Use it inside, outside or
anywhere in between. Tempi is there for you.

Or the base...
How big is Tempi
We made Tempi to be just the right size. Not too small and not too big. We've looked at other wearable devices (such as Misfit Shine). The Misfit shine we thought was too small to handle so we made Tempi a bit larger even though we didn't need to.
And here's how it compares to Misfit Shine
many times have you asked this question: “I wonder what the temperature is
where I’m sitting, walking, sleeping, skiing… etc?” Well, wonder no more… We
created Tempi because, we believe, nothing beats knowing what the temperature
is right where you are.
We’ve always been interested in temperature. About
10 years ago we had a concept for a similar standalone device but did not act
on it. And recently we backed a KickStarter project which measures local
temperature but that did not fulfill our obsessive temperature needs; you have
to plug this gadget into the phone’s audio jack and keep both exposed to the
elements to get the temperature. While it’s a very nice product, we wanted
something to continuously measure temperature at home and outside without
limitations. That’s when we decided to develop Tempi and we’re so glad we did.
We’re already using it in several locations around the home and office and we

connects to your iPhone (and soon Android devices) through Bluetooth - BLE to
be specific. A free app connects Tempi to your phone and you will be able to
monitor the temperature, shown in Fahrenheit and Celsius, on your screen. Of course
you can set desirable limits, and Tempi will notify you if the temperature goes
above or below them. Now, all you have to do is sit back relax… and monitor the
Tempi’s design is simple and elegant. It will be available in the following two colors:
So Where Are We Now?
We went through several design iterations and Tempi is now ready for the production stage. From paper concepts to prototypes, we made excellent progress and are very happy with the outcome.
Tempi's Electronics Prototypes
Tempi's Enclosure Prototypes
This is where Tempi is now. We have everything in place to
move into the production phase and that’s why we launched the KickStarter
campaign. We are very close to making the product reality so please help us get
Tempi’s app is simple and easy to use – you shouldn’t expect
any less. However, we want to add more features to the app and beef it up a
bit. Right now Tempi’s app displays temperature and provides basic functions
such as notifications, C or F (or Both) and low battery alert. Here’s what we
would like to do by the end of the KickStarter campaign:
- Enable it to monitor multiple Tempis – maybe you
want one for your room, baby’s room, outside.. etc. This feature will keep
track of all of your Tempis.
- Add social networking so you can post your
location and how cold it is while visiting Santa.
Add map integration so you can keep track of temperature
when you’re on the go. Ok maybe we’re getting too obsessed with temperature.
But imagine being on a hike and you’re going through a wild terrain. Wouldn’t
it be cool to map your path and associated temperatures?
try to get you the best rewards possible to fit your taste. We included our
product the FoneStand as part of the rewards as we didn’t feel backers need
another t-shirt. Instead, we opted for a something that is actually useful. We
want this campaign to be interactive so we welcome rewards suggestions.
Use of Funds
We’re asking you to help us make Tempi a reality. We’re very close to getting there. We’ve built prototypes, identified suppliers, and are ready to put Tempi into production. Here’s what’s left:
- App enhancement – see above.
- Production Tooling,
- Tempi Optimization.
- Manufacturing of Tempi Units.
- Product Certification – CE, FCC, Bluetooth.
The above list is typical for taking a product to
market. We are experienced in launching products and know exactly what’s
required to pull this off.
