We have asked our backers, followers and newsletter subscribers to participate in our survey. We don’t want to stew in our own juice, so before we introduce the 2.0 version, we need to know what our supporters think. Now we have answers to many questions and will go in the right direction. Very interesting analytics comes out, so continue reading :)
Let’s see what has come out for now:
Geo: Most of our supporters come from the USA (61%) and Europe (28%).
Smart home: Majority of responders has (58%) or is planning to get (37%) a smart home system. Most popular technologies are: Wi-Fi, ZigBee, and Z-wave.
2.0 Version: 89% support the upgrade! Wow, that means we read your mind!
Enclosure design: 100% approval!
CordBox with retracting mechanism to avoid cord loops: 50/50 – so we probably should offer it is an option.
Other types of blinds: 60% would like to automate other blinds they have at home. Well, we are working on it!
Solar panel option: 79% vote for green tech - will be done! It will be available as an add-on soon.
Price for Jalousier 2.0: We can divide all suggestions into two ranges, with 50/50 votes: $30-60 and $70-120. Thanks to the changes in technology, 2.0 is going to be 20-30% more affordable, than 1.0 - so we will be somewhere in the middle!
Number of devices needed: Most popular ranges are 2-5 and 5-10 devices.It makes sense to make discounted bundles of 2, 5 and 10 devices therefore.
Indiegogo campaign: 99% positive feedback – thanks a lot! This was our first ever introduction to the world, thanks for being that loyal!
Suggestions, critics, advice: To sum up, most wishes regarded price, different protocols (or none), Jalousier for other types of blinds, and lots of kind words and wishes of good luck!
Thanks to respondents for being part of our Team! We are heading up to Berlin tonight to present Jalousier to Deutsche Telekom experts and investors! Very excited!
