Thank you guys! It has been a very intense and exciting 24 hours .We just release our stretch goals - Hello Alexa and Siri
@Jean-Pierre, I will he happy to jump on a call with you. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the support of this community. So it is our time to give back. PM me your contact info.
About the certification process, there is a great doc written by @will on the Particle documentation Guide.
The analog clock is not integrated (yet). On the beta units it just pulls power (1.5V) from the PCB. We are planing to “upgrade” to movement that we can control from the board.
The tricky part is that our solution needs to be reliable for 10+ years. Our current movement already adjusts automatically for DST. So the extra benefits are not as big, so we will only do the switch if we come up with a super reliable solution.
About the screen brigthness, we will let the user select 2 brigthness levels, for for during the day and for for after sunset. The default is 40% less brigth.
How do you envision hiding the cord? We would love to get rid of it, but give the LED and full color LCD power consumption, it is just not doable. So given that we need to have a cord, we wold love to hear ideas on what to do with it
The cord is a micro USB cable rated for 2 Amps. So if your wall is black for example, you can get a black cable from Amazon instead of using the white one that comes with the clock.
