We have passed FCC!! And UL testing is scheduled to complete in mid December!
We are also initiating a test run of 50 Luminodes to make sure our manufacturing facility is prepared to make our initial production run once we get UL approval.
In addition our electronics hardware designer Steve Dame has launched his own side project to compliment the Luminode or your own Raspberry Pi based wireless project! It is a small programmable daughter board for the Raspberry Pi called the RazBee. It is based on the same Freescale MC1322x chip as the Luminode which can be loaded with our Luminode coordinator firmware or your own firmware project! He plans to launch his own Kickstarter project to bring it into mass production. You can check out his website here.
Meanwhile we have successfully ported the Think Automatic home automation learning algorithm to the Raspberry Pi with the RazBee daughter board! Here it is in action:
If all goes well, by the time we ship the Luminodes in January we will be able to offer the option of a full Raspberry Pi + RazBee pre-loaded with the Think Automatic learning system as an alternative to the the USB dongle at little or no extra cost! We’ll keep you posted as we progress…
