Arduino At Heart EZ Control for home automation goes wireless – 8 days left
We’re happy to share with you the update of the Indiegogo campaign of the Arduino At Heart for home automation we presented some time ago. Ez Control goes wireless!
We have been silent for most of the time of this campaign, but this doesn’t means that we were sleeping. Not at all!
We were listening and interacting. We have received your comments, we have followed the topic on Reddit, we have exchanged ideas with many of you and we spent all this time improving our product.
Some of you was concerned about the relay, maybe too small. Some other concern was related to the position of the temperature sensor, that could offer false reading caused by the heat from other components.
We have upgraded the relay with a new one, rated 5A, and we have also improved the physical insulation for the high voltage circuit. We have then improved the insulation of the temperature sensor.
Sure all interesting, but those where not the main doubts about our hardware.
The most requested upgrade was related to the connectivity.
Why in 2014 do we use wires?
We admit that going wireless it was in our plans for the future. We wanted to start with an easy to use board, affordable and based on well known technologies, open to most of the users.
Reading and listening all your comments, we have understood that we should change our plan, and we did it.
Yes! We spent the past month with design, engineering, prototyping and testing of the brand new and immediately available EZboard WiFi!
This means that every perk and everyone will receive NOT the old board based on the cables and 10Mbit Ethernet controller, but this new, fantastic, WiFi development board.
And the price will not change!!!
