iMyK9 Pet Monitor Launch – Take 2

,

You always hear, “When one door closes, another one opens.” We experienced this first hand with the initial launch of iMyK9.  Our grand plan to launch through Kickstarter didn’t exactly work out, but there is a silver lining.

We’re excited, and think you will be too!

What happened?

Very late in the game, our vendor changed the price of the iMyK9 cellular monitors and the cost of the data plan, which changed our price structure, and therefore the end cost to you. We were caught off guard, and expect many of you were as well.  As a result, the Kickstarter launch plan flopped….

BUT THAT’S TOTALLY OK! Because of…

What’s Next!

After licking our wounds for a couple of days, we realized that there was a much simpler way to launch iMyK9.

We could:

  • Use the same technology we’d already built
  • … AND lower the price point
  • … AND get to market faster.

Now, doesn’t that sound like a WIN-WIN-WIN idea?!!!

Rather than shipping a cellular monitor and having to manage data usage, we had the brilliant thought that most cellular carriers today give away phones for almost free. What if instead of shipping and supporting the iMyK9 cellular monitor, we just made the app available through the Google Play store (and later through the iTunes store) for a set monthly price?

Can I get a Hallelujah?

The iMyK9 Pet Monitor Launch – Take 2

In the next week or so, we’ll make pre-orders available on this website right here. Be SURE to sign up for our iMyK9 launch news!

We already have several patents. Our next step is to get FCC certification and to finalize pricing. Assuming all goes smoothly with that process, we believe we’ll still be able to ship iMyK9 by December 2017! WHOO-HOO!

Thank you for your support. We remain as committed as ever to keeping animals safe while travelling!

Check out iMyK9 on Kickstarter

After lots of deliberation, we decided that the best way to raise funds and awareness about iMyK9 was to launch through Kickstarter. Check out our iMyK9 Launch FAQ Page for more information. That page will be updated regularly as we continue to your field questions. We will post the link to Kickstarter as soon as our project goes live.

New option with the iMyK9 M1 Temp Sensor

If you haven’t looked at our How iMyK9 Works page in a while, we added a new section for the iMyK9 M1 Temp Sensor.  The Temp Sensor is a “light version” of the full iMyK9 Pet Monitor. It’s built using the same technology, but without the video / audio monitoring.  Based on your feedback, we realized that some people are really only concerned about temperature monitoring, and that we could create a lower-priced temp monitoring solution using the technology we’d already developed.
