Sydney, Australia -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/27/2014 -- The Postbox has been around for centuries. People check them every day before entering the comfort of their home, apartment or flat and far too often find it's empty. Postifier is about to change all that; by turning the current everyday Postbox into a smart Postbox and bringing it into the 21st century.
Postifier was designed to provide the solution to those pointless frustrating walks to the Postbox and back, empty handed. With the Smartphone as popular as ever, they developed a device which sends a notification to Smartphones if mail arrived during the day.
Postifier supports iOS and Android
Uses Bluetooth SMART (Low Energy)
Has a battery life over 9 months (Usage dependant)
Average pairing range of 30metres or 100feet
All internal electronics, firmware, connectivity and iPhone app is complete. Team Postifier focused all their efforts in getting this core area developed first. However, they still have work to do. They are asking for $25,000 which will go directly to:
The design of the custom, small and weatherproof enclosure
Final PCB revision
Regulatory testing and approval
Component order/procurement (Initial estimated production run of at least 500 units)
Android application development
This project will only be funded if at least $25,000 AUD is pledged by Tue, Mar 11 2014 4:18 am EDT.
