We’ve shipped out a few hundred Climate’s at this point. For us, shipping means taking a bare PCB, testing it, adding a battery, making up three separate flat-pack boxes, shrink-wrapping another battery, adding a baby screwdriver and velcro tabs….then a Russian doll routine of inserting one box into another into another. And we’ve unfortunately not been able to integrate the Stamps.com shipping into ShipApp.
Now, that said, whilst it might be painful, it’s a good learning experience and will help us control quality and optimize future production runs.
Some of you will have already received shipping notifications from Stamps.com letting you know your package is on its way. For the rest of you, we appreciate your patience and we’ll get to each and every one of you as quickly as we can!
We’re going to be switching over to shipping Grow, Sentry and Leak (Water) in about two weeks from now and are hiring some temporary help to get us through this.
Lorenzo has found an issue with Thermo resetting during some regression testing. We’re still not sure if it’s manufacturing or design related issue and it seems to be a fringe case, so hopefully Thermo will be included in the above shipments.
In light of finally shipping, we have a new website, forums, blog and rebranded help desk coming in the next few days. We hope to be able to add some videos and other “how-to’s” to help people get started.
More For Developers
For those of you interested in developing free, commercial or proprietary applications that use Wimoto sensors, we’ve added some Android demo code to the developer repository. Quite simply, it uses the beacon (aka BLE Broadcast) mode of our Climate sensor to read current temperature/humidity/light levels from any Wimoto sensors encountered.
