I had a major health set-back in early November. I’ll be in treatment for another 4-6 months, but I am returning to work part-time around that schedule. This has been a trying time for my family and I, and I apologize for the radio silence — things should return to normal now.
We released an update to the Android app a little while ago that addresses a lot of issues and seems to provide broader support for hardware. One issue that we’re aware of is that Sentry passive-infrared notifications don’t always seem to be triggering the app – which is a bit of an enigma as all other notifications work fine and iOS also works fine.
We’ve deicded to brand both the bridge hardware and the cloud services Wimoto “I/O” (input/output).
The bridge itself is a small Linux computer with 802.11b/g/n Wifi and BLE on board. When I say small, the case is 8cm*8cm*5cm.
If you don’t want to use our cloud service, that’s more than fine: the bridge speaks the industry standard MQTT protocol and can be plugged into any MQTT broker you like. An interesting use-case might be something like running the Mosquitto MQTT broker with NodeRed on a Raspberry Pi and integrating our sensors into home automation.
The electronics are finished and we need the plastics work to be completed before shipping. This is the third attempt at making a bridge and it’s been simplified dramatically over some of the more grandiose plans.

We are still working on the plastics for the re-design. Unfortunately my heath, Fall Festival and now CNY got in the way. We’ll post an update as soon we have a firm shipping timeline.
