Manufacturing and Shipping Update
At Mysa, we are continuing to work hard to get all units out to our customers as soon as possible. We successfully completed our first (very) small manufacturing run and will be delivering those units this and next week. All of those units received some additional testing and passed all of our internal tests.
Your Smart Home has Safety Problems (but you can fix it)
Ask a smart home owner, “is your home secure?” and you’ll get either a shrug or a thumbs-up. One answer is apathetic, the other answer is ignorant, and both are completely wrong. Your smart home is not safe.
Product Update: EMC Compliance
First of all; I want to thank all of our pre-order customers for your patience and support on what has been a long and arduous process. We recognize that all of these delays have not been ideal and that the fact that you are not getting your Mysa thermostats by Christmas is a real disappointment.
Wi-Fi, Zigbee, and Z-Wave: What’s the difference?
Connectivity is something that we’ve all become so used to having, that many of us feel lost without it. With the rapid expansion of the internet of things, more and more objects are becoming connected. With so many people looking to have total control, the home automation industry is growing, and with that, so are the options for the way these smart home devices communicate.
The Five Types of Smart Homeowners
Smart home products offer innovations in all things home related: heating/cooling, security, energy management and overall convenience. There is enough variety in their application that it can provide value to nearly any type of person. But that begs the question –who are the most likely to invest in smart home devices, and what do they get out of it? And which type of smart homeowner are you?
Mysa App Preview
The Mysa app will soon be submitted to the iOS and Android app stores for publishing and review which may take a couple of weeks. Some customers have asked us to see a preview of the app and although we are not able to offer the Mysa app for download at the moment, we wanted to share a sneak peek into the app’s design and interface.
Do You Need a Smart Home?
Considering investing in smart home technology? You’re not alone.
While the smart home industry as a whole is still in its infancy (as of 2016, only 28% of Canadians had invested in a connected smart home device), it is projected to have explosive growth over the next decade.
EMC Product Update
As mentioned in our last update, the Mysa Smart thermostat has passed all electrical and mechanical safety testing for compliance with CSA and UL standards. The remaining piece is regarding EMC performance. Without passing these EMC tests we are not allowed to sell Mysa.
