Cocoon October update.
It’s hard not to begin every “Cocoon Update” with something along the lines of “We’ve had a really busy month here at Cocoon.” Recently it’s been no different.
Following our launch we have shipped Cocoons to our indiegogo backers and early supporters. Most backers have received their Cocoons but if you are still waiting for your Cocoon contact us here. Cocoons are now available to buy on our website, through Zurich UK’s Home Insurance, and on both Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com.
Available on Amazon.
From day one you’ve told us you’d like to get Cocoon on Amazon, and now you can!
Cocoon is available to purchase on both Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. In the UK we’re part of the Launchpad programme, a curated “place to discover unique and unexpected products from today’s brightest startups”.
Have your say!
We’re proud to be averaging 8.4/10 on Trustpilot and are already seeing lots of comments on Amazon and in the iOS and Android app stores. Thank you to all of you who’ve taken the time to leave a review. We read each and every one of them and, whether positive or otherwise, it guides us in what’s working and what we need to improve.
Cocoons are now all over the world, in 55 countries. It’s important that our packaging withstands the journey from our warehouses to your home so that every Cocoon arrives looking shiny and new. To achieve this our packaging must be as robust as possible.
Our team have created a new packaging to better protect Cocoons in transit, and make sure they are delivered looking great. We had to test this packaging worked as it should, and co-founder Dan did so in quite a dramatic way. Watch the video of Dan testing Cocoons to destruction.
Winners: British Engineering Excellence Awards
The design of Cocoon was created with the help of ByteSnap. Together we were nominated as Design Team of the Year in the esteemed British Engineering Excellence Awards. In a year with a record-breaking number of entries, it was an honour to be shortlisted. We were thrilled to be declared the winners on the night.
Cocoon in the news
Since launching you may have seen some of our amazing press coverage. Cocoon has been in the Financial Times, T3 Magazine, City AM and many insurance, security and tech publications.
One article we especially like is in The Memo. It highlights issues with many smart home products currently being developed, declaring Cocoon as one of only two products doing things right. London journalist Alex Wood explains how Cocoon is “Saving smart homes from the gutter”.
The focus of our team is now on improving our app user experience and adding features to make sure Cocoon delivers what you want. Each app update reflects feedback we’ve received. We believe security shouldn’t cost you your privacy. We bake that belief into everything we do, so you can rest assured that we’ve incorporated rigorous security measures into the app software.
We want to say thank you for your continued support, and to remind you that we are always here if you want to say hello.
