Kickstarter update #47 – New firmware, blog, SDK and final shipments

New firmware

We’ve released firmware R066 and it should be the second to last firmware that needs to be manually updated via the web UI. You can find the firmware and the changelog in the forums –,1883.0.html

Blog, Forums, Wiki and Support

As mentioned in our previous update, we’re looking at winding down things here on Kickstarter over the next couple of months and as such, we’re getting things ready on our side. Our new blog is up and running and you can find it here –
From today, we’ll be posting our Kickstarter updates in parallel here on Kickstarter as well as on our blog. Longer term, we’ll only be posting on the blog, but it’ll also be used for things like product announcements, some tips and tricks and various other things.

If you haven’t already visited our forums, that’s another great resource for getting help both from us and other backers and you can find the forum here –

Due to the fact that things are still changing on almost a monthly basis in terms of the functionality of the Almond+, we haven’t got a manual as such for it, but you can find a lot of useful guides on our Wiki which is located here –

For those of you that needs support for whatever reason, please visit our support page which contains contact information for our support team –
Please note that we don’t have support numbers for all regions, but our in-house support team will give you a call back if needed, if you send them an email first.

SDK and developer forum

We’ve opened the developer forum to everyone that has a registered forum account and the SDK can be found in the forums. The related forum post contains links to documentation and some basic example code. We’ll be providing more code examples, but we felt it was better that we allowed everyone to get access to the SDK first, rather than just wait for the example code to be ready before giving everyone access to the SDK.

99.3% of Backer Rewards Shipped

If you are among the 0.7% who haven’t received your Almond+ by now, there are only two possibilities:

  1. You didn’t provide us with your shipping details. Please email with your address and reward details and we’ll get your Almond+ sent out to you.
  2. You received a tracking number, but haven’t received your Almond+. Please check with the courier and also contact us right away. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to track lost packages. If we shipped via EMS (tracking numbers starting with EE), please locate the local EMS partner and contact them if you haven’t recieved your Almond+ –

We’d also like to apologise for the shipping delays and some of the unfortunate issues that have arisen in some countries.

  1. Excellent product so far. Worth the wait. 1 suggestion for improvement. Add a link to the Add Sensors, telling us what sensors are supported and where to buy them, or at least a shameless plug to your own store selling supported ones. 🙂

    can’t get connected to the web UI for update

      What happens when you try to connect? If you see a white screen with an error message, do a hard reset and you’ll be able to access the web UI. If you can’t figure out how to log in, go to Status, Web Admin in the LCD UI and you’ll find instructions how to log in.
