I am just blown away by how mismanaged this whole Lockitron development has been. Deliveries are over a year late and still no firm commitment on when deliveries will be done or how quickly units are being developed except for vague and evasive statements. There has been little to no transparency.
Reading through the posts here you can feel the level of frustration and disappointment. Confidence seems at alarmingly low levels.
Having assembly sit at a standstill because you ran out of PCBs when you have thousands of people waiting for your product can only be the result of indifference at best or poor planning at worst.
I think if the Lockitron staff is at all interested in increasing the confidence of their backers a CLEAR and HONEST delivery schedule would be in order. A statement that says “our plan was to ramp up (that is, ship more units per week) prior to our delay in circuit boards” is not only vague but does nothing to keep your customers informed.
Don’t tell us what your plan WAS, tell us what your plan IS, and how quickly will you be assembling and shipping products.
This is just crazy.
