Qblinks Opens Pre-Orders for Qmote:
Intuitive, single-button remote performs actions on your phone with simple click patterns.
Qblinks today announces the availability of pre-orders for its flagship product, Qmote, a sleek smart remote for your smartphone and smart home devices. Through Bluetooth Low Energy, Qmote lets you control routine actions on your phone, like taking photos or making calls, without the hassle of finding your phone and opening numerous apps. Qmote also boasts an enhanced antennae design that improves signal and increases the distance for Bluetooth connections between phone and Qmote to 165 feet.
Qmote, approximately the size of a guitar pick, has a brushed metal exterior (available in golden amber, gray obsidian and now green turquoise) and is water-resistant. With your phone acting as a smart hub, Qmote offers easy functionality and quick access to devices, all at the click of a button. Program one Qmote with up to ten functions by simply choosing a preferred click pattern and assigning it to a specific action in the Qmote app – i.e. one click hits snooze on your phone alarm.
“Our technology enhances and simplifies everyday life because we’ve created a device that’s easy to pair up and start using right away,” said Samson Chen, co-founder of Qblinks. “We believe Qmote holds infinite possibilities, as users can update it themselves OTA (over-the-air), making interactions with any device more convenient.”
Qmote can do things like record video, start navigation, control music, and even become a wireless presenter all without any extra software or set-up. Qmote also controls smart home devices such as Nest, Wemo and Hue.
Qmote’s successful Kickstarter campaign nearly doubled the stretch goal of $120,000, ending with nearly 6,000 backers and a total of $219,616 in funding.
