 We buy the majority of our components in USA and ship to Shenzhen, China for PCB (printed circuit board) assembly. Small quantity (<4000 units) PCB assembly is a labor intensive process, because manual labor is needed to organize/sort/inventory hundreds of types of component in cut-tapes, which is why even PCB companies in US out-source PCB assembly to China. We are currently experiencing a little longer than expected Chinese Customs clearance time. Before, our shipment from USA clear Chinese customs in a few days, now it has been more than a week. There should be about 1 week delay from originally planned ship date. We will have to establish a different method of production to avoid going through Chinese customs in the future.

Calling custom URL on each type of event, and allowing user to download raw motion & temperature statistic data as Excel spreadsheet (CSV) have now been implemented and are available to our existing and future customers. The Web/android app user manual has been updated. 

Custom URL calling allows you to integrate our product with Web service (REST endpoint) enabled home automation systems such as Insteon/ISY by Universal Devices. For example, you can turn on a light when door is opened, or motion is detected. In another example, you can turn off every light at your home when a tag (that may be attached to your key chain) is out of range.

Due to the sudden coverage by, we are receiving a lot of orders in the past 24 hours. We have scrambled last night to order almost $10,000 worth of components from DigiKey and Mouser and will have them express shipped to our PCB assembly company. For this batch, the final shipping should be before mid-September. However. these components will only be able to cover about 75% of orders we received so far. For the other orders, the shipment is expected to be end of September ~ early October. We will send you a detailed timeline after you place your (pre-)order. 

Since we hand assemble and test every order we ship, our production capability is limited. Your orders will be  processed as carefully as any other orders we shipped so far, as we ramp up our production capability. Thank you for your orders and interest in this product.
