New Socket Design

June 01, 2015

Hi Kuna supporters,

Welcome to the second blog in our new series of updates. We’ll be highlighting the challenges we face while creating Kuna and the exciting progress we’re making in design developments, bug fixes and new features.

In each update our co-founder and CTO, Haomiao, will share the improvements we’re making or features we’re introducing. This week Haomiao talks about redesigning Kuna’s light socket to improve the overall user experience.

New_light_socket_design_compactAs we’ve created Kuna we’ve realized that not all problems come from the advanced technology we’re building, they can come from something as small as a couple of loose screws! Alongside Kuna’s technology, we’re committed to delivering a well designed product and we hope that this careful redesign of the light socket shows our commitment.

This design improvement and all developments in our future updates have been retrofitted to each Kuna we’ve sent out already and are now being scaled to mass production for the Kunas coming in July.

At the end of each blog we’ll also list the bugs we’re aware of and working on at the moment. We encourage you to check back regularly to see what’s keeping our team busy, and contact us if something needs to be added – your feedback is continually helping us to make Kuna better and better!

To send us feedback, ask a question or if you just want to say hello, please reach out to our friendly team at and don’t forget to sign up for our newsletters at if you want to be the first to get these updates! We look forward to sharing our next blog with you and thanks again for joining us on our mission to make homes safer, everywhere.

The Kuna Team

Bugs, Features and Improvements we’re working on:

– improving live video performance especially on Android (update coming in the next week!)

– improving the reliability of the detection and alerts

– fixing an error which continually shows the live stream as busy ( Kuna Tip: swipe down on your feed to refresh the videos and it shouldn’t appear as busy anymore. If this still doesn’t solve the issue, we’re working on it!)

– testing upcoming app release that will enable setting a light schedule and detection sensitivity (app coming this week!)

– continuing to improve Wi-Fi stability
