Blocknize won the Customer’s tender for a baby care system idea in 2016. Moreover, it developed detailed specifications. Following the Customer’s approval of the specification, they requested the construction of an iOS and Android app and a back end.
Blocknize assigned three iOS developers, three Android developers, a UI/UX designer, and a back-end developer. For 11 months, the team worked on both the iOS and Android app versions.
Besides, the completed software is compatible with the Customer’s five branded devices. Moreover, the GPS smartwatch employs a back end. Also, the first four gadgets interact with the app through Bluetooth.
Natural Light Lamp
The app may be used as a remote control for turning on and off the bulb and modifying the brightness.
Scales And Height Meter
Data from a digital height meter and baby scales may be immediately sent to the app and kept in the log.
Formula Milk Maker
A parent may control the volume and temperature of formula milk from afar using the app. Moreover, after that, the machine will calculate the required quantity of formula powder. Then it will create a formula with the desired temperature.
The thermometer gadget can gather temperature data since it may be connected to the baby’s body. Moreover, it gets connected for an extended period. Besides, the app will receive it at predetermined intervals. Also, it sends out push alerts if anything goes wrong.
When worn by a youngster, the smartwatch allows for an easy emoji-based chat conversation.
