Fantem, a developer of products and solutions for the home, has successfully raised $1 million during its ongoing Indiegogo campaign for the smart home system, Oomi.
Oomi offers users the ability to simply control and monitor their home’s lighting, ambiance, air quality, security, entertainment streaming and much more all from one sleek remote, the Oomi Touch. By reaching the $1 million mark so quickly, Fantem hopes to set a new record for crowdfunded smart home projects before the campaign ends in 37 days.
Winston Cheng, CEO of Fantem, stated:
“We are both humbled and thrilled by the response Oomi has received. One million dollars has far surpassed our expectations and it is a validation of our belief that simplicity and user experience is key. We knew that a 30-day campaign would not suffice to tell the Oomi story. There’s still time yet in this campaign and we hope that fans of smart home will tune in.”
Oomi has built with leading technology and patent pending features that not only ensure easy set-up of all Oomi accessories, but also allow integration of other smart home devices. Additionally, unlike other smart home hubs, Oomi Cube provides unmatched functionality out of the box. It is packed with environmental sensors, a night vision IP camera, security detection, wireless control, and it’s the only one to feature a 360° IR blaster, perfect for home theatre and climate control. Oomi also eliminates the need for an internet connection.
Colin Marshall, Vice President of Fantem, added:
“We found that the concept of a smart home can be confusing for the average consumer. Most smart home devices overcomplicate something that is supposed to make your life easier, but simplicity is what differentiates Oomi. You can have a great smart home experience in less than five minutes thanks to our Tap-and-Touch technology. Just tap the Oomi Touch controller to any Oomi accessory and you’re ready to go.”
