Cocoon April Update

Cocoon Labs

Update

We first want to say thank you for your patience and your support. Over the last year, you’ve kindly shared your time and even your homes with us to help make simple whole home security a reality and bring Cocoon to life. We’re pleased to say that we’re now in production and will be in contact over the coming weeks to confirm shipping addresses with our earliest supporters.

April saw Cocoon ship a controlled number of devices to early Indiegogo backers as we start to carefully scale production and servicing of our customer base.

We plan to ship another 100 Cocoons in May to our earliest UK-based Indiegogo backers. If everything goes smoothly we plan to ship 900 units at the end of June to our Indiegogo backers worldwide.

To recap:

  • End of May – 100 units shipped to Cocoon backers in the U.K.
  • End of June – 900 units shipped to Cocoon backers worldwide.

Hardware Update

It’s been an incredibly busy month for hardware. Nick’s team have successfully started large scale manufacture and testing of Cocoon devices with our production partner here in the U.K. Over the next eight weeks around 1,000 Cocoons will be manufactured, packed and shipped to over 850 of our earliest supporters.

Production testing revealed a couple of minor issues that we’ve managed to resolve for the full factory production run.

  • The material used in front lens impaired night vision functionality – has now been corrected.
  • The Siren assembly process needed to be optimised for the larger production process that follows in May.

Cocoon home security team testing units

In late April we completed the production of 5,000 Cocoon retail boxes. We’ve designed the packaging to be compact and environmentally friendly, saving on materials used whilst keeping the design quality as high as possible. Each box is designed to securely encase Cocoon as it makes it’s way from the factory to your doorstep.
