Departing from a highly challenged, sluggish appliance market in early 2014, we decided to venture into new fields. We designed, manufactured and launched in 2015 a smartphone companion, gathering all functions to support a smartphone in the wild... that we named the Essential. It brings together headset, selfie, torchlight, and power bank.
A first try that proved encouraging! Based on our distributors and users feedback, we doubled down and improved on it: we reduced the size, added vibration, redesigned the companion app and added a panic alarm, creating a pull to trigger lanyard that would make a deafening sound! We named that new product Essential Guard.
After 2 years, and despite a few design awards, we realized marketing and distribution are challenging in the electronics world, a feeling confirmed when partners and friends approached us to help them sell their products in our region.
We decided to take the problem on and established fonebud IoT, a new platform dedicated to the promotion and sales of connected products in South East Asia and beyond.
We partner up with global IoT startups, bringing in the revolutionary lifestyle IoT gadgets, making life easier and more enjoyable!
Today we are taking lots of connected products for trial runs in our network, so do contact us if you have a product to sell, or a product to buy, or both!
See you soon!
