ANAVI Gas Detector is enjoying a fantastic start to the crowdfunding campaign! In just 10 days, the project is fully funded and we hit all stretch goals! As promised, awesome stickers promoting open source will be added to each package and we will start preparing video tutorials. ANAVI Gas Detector is made with KiCad - the free and open source EDA software. To spread the word how great KiCad is, we will provide stickers to any of our backers. Thank you for bringing to life this entirely open source project.
During the last weekend there were several important updates in GitHub of the default Arduino sketch. Now ANAVI Gas Detector and all sensors included in the kits support the feature for automatic discovery in Home Assistant over MQTT. We also migrated from ArduinoJson library version 5 to 6.
We are ready for manufacturing and thanks to your support now there are enough funds for production. All ANAVI Gas Detectors will be made and assembled in my hometown of Plovdiv, Bulgaria. We already have successful experience with other open source products like ANAVI Thermometer, ANAVI Light Controller, ANAVI Infrared pHAT and more. In the meantime, ANAVI Gas Detector has been reviewed by several popular tech blogs: cnx-software, hackster and geeky-gadgets.
Thank you for your support! Stay tuned for more updates.
