We have reached our $25,000 Kickstarter goal

dizmo will now go into development of the product version of the software, which will be available from June this year.

We are thrilled to announce that as off today we have smashed our $25 000 funding goal on Kickstarter and we still have more than 2 weeks to go! We are absolutely astounded by the positive response we’ve had so far, and that we hit our goal so quickly. Moreover Kicksarter’s statistics tell us that today we are the most popular project on earth among the 722 projects in our category.

One of the biggest challenges for a start-up company very often is to find a good name. As the first versions of our product were dedicated mainly to home control applications, we used «Kastellan» (which was the term used for the «keeper of the castle» in the middle-ages) as the name of the project and also considered it to be the name of the product. But the more we realized the power of the concepts we had gathered in our product and the quickly broadening range of applications the software was able to support, we had to look for a new name that would better reflect the power and the versatility of the product.
