Have you noticed some of the little things we’ve added to your CubeSensors web app? Most noticeably, we’ve now improved the information you see for Cubes that are either discharged or disconnected from the network. When any of your Cubes goes offline, the app will show you more details about why and when that happened and what you can do to bring the Cube back online.
For those of you who use CubeSensors Sleep to track your bedrooms, we’ve recently added advice on how you can prepare your bedrooms for sleep. This advice only appears in the evening and only for Cubes that are used in bedrooms, so it doesn’t get in the way when you don’t need it.
And even though our office Cubes are complaining about raising temperatures, we’re still working hard on even bigger summer updates for the app and your Cubes. We can’t wait to tell you more about what we’re preparing!
After welcoming a full-time designer, we also wanted to expand the CubeSensors team with somebody who could translate Maša’s new designs into our app.
David joined the team in November and has since taken over most of front-end development for our web app. His first big project was the new Settings section that was released as part of our big Sleep update. In the coming months, he’ll also be adding other cool, commonly requested features and visual improvements to the app.
David is a skilled front-end developer, which he’s also proved by setting up his own online gift shop, which he runs as a hobby, together with his wife. He’s also the most musically gifted member of our team. He regularly performs on his guitar as the bearded half of the Nina & David Acoustic duo and as a base player with Hish N’ Band.
Until now, we’ve been shipping our Cubes in a universal cube-shaped box with minor differences among packs of different sizes. While this universal box has served us well, it didn’t fit all packs and parts nicely. To reduce waste and improve the unboxing experience, we decided to do a little spring update and expand our packaging family with a more spacious box for the Large pack with 6 Cubes, and an incredibly cute smaller box that can be used to ship additional Cubes or Base stations along with their cables.
If you’d like to expand your CubeSensors network at home or at the office, you can now order a single Cube or Base directly from our website and they will be shipped in our updated packaging.
For a first look of our new packaging, we used our office garden and a wonderful sunny spring day to take a family photo of the new boxes and the Cubes each box can accommodate.
As before, all our packaging is made out of recyclable cardboard. Inside, you’ll also find cable boxes that can easily be reused for storage, while cats of all sizes will appreciate the cozy shipping box that provides extra protection for your pack of Cubes during its short journey to your doorstep.
