Progress So Far

Hello backers,

Only a week is left in our campaign and we are thankful to you all for supporting our project thus far. During this campaign, we have partnered with various IoT platforms and entities to which our users can now connect to and manage their Stratus kit from. These platforms include:

With support for so many platforms, our users are free to choose, prototype, and test their ideas in all sorts of ways using the Stratus kit.

Post Campaign

Even after the campaign ends, the Stratus kit will remain available for purchase from Crowd Supply. So do not worry, if you happen to miss our crowdfunding campaign, you will still be able to pre-order one of yourself. At this point, we also encourage our backers to sign up for the newsletter on the official product page, through which we will be updating you with future hardware releases and product updates.

Production Schedule

We have already acquired most of the electronic components for our board in order to reduce the lead times for production.

Here’s a sneak peek into our Stratus kit production plans.

Ongoing Work

We will continue working on the hardware and the software side of the Stratus kit up until we ship (and well beyond!) This work mainly involves:

Between now and January 2022

Tutorial of the Week: Connecting Conexio Stratus to the Golioth Cloud

Uptime is important for embedded devices, but guaranteeing uptime is challenging. Having embedded devices that can work independently is a great time saver because you can leave them to the task they were designed for. Therefore, remotely located devices need to be monitored to maintain visibility and provide a status report on the performance of these devices. Such remote management tools can alert administrators when errors occur or devices fail to work at all so admins can identify and resolve the errors quickly.

One such observability platform is Golioth. Golioth allows device makers to deliver on the promise of cloud-connected IoT by enabling hardware developers to build end-to-end IoT-connected products using their choice of hardware and connectivity, all without the need for a team of cloud engineers. From device messaging to security, firmware updates, analytics, and more, the platform provides device services that work with every developer’s hardware and firmware requirements. At the moment, Golioth supports embedded IoT devices running ZephyrRTOS. And the good news is that Golioth is now open to use for developers.
