At the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show, Cigar Oasis showcased its new wi-fi capabilities that would integrate with its humidification devices. By leveraging these new capabilities, it allows the cigar enthusiast to regulate and monitor the conditions in his / her humidor from a remote device. This is accomplished by adding the Cigar Oasis Wi-Fi Attachment to Cigar Oasis’ Next Generation line of Humidors. Now Cigar Oasis is taking these capabilities and launching a new brand called Smart Humidor™. The new Smart Humidor™ will officially launch at the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show in New Orleans.
The Smart Humidor™ branding will now apply to the Wi-Fi Attachment, Mobile Apps, and Web Login components. All future products from Cigar Oasis that fall into what the company calls “the remote monitoring / control category” will be released under the Smart Humidor™ brand.
“We were seeing a number of other Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled remote monitoring devices enter the cigar accessory market and we wanted a brand that would emphasize the uniqueness of what our product offers…” Said Albert Foundos, president and founder of Cigar Oasis in a press release announcing the new brand. “Ours does not merely monitor and alert you of changes, but can actually control the humidity since it is attached to your Cigar Oasis humidifier. And more importantly, ANY humidor can become a Smart Humidor, from a desktop to a large cabinet and even small walk-ins. So this is really a universal solution, not locking you into to any one particular humidor size or design.”
Cigar Oasis has plans to update its IOS / Android apps and web-login apps. The company says the apps will undergo a “complete facelift, (have) swifter response, and more user-friendly functionality. A key piece of functionality will be to provide the Mobile Apps to have the same functionality as the Web-Login application – this includes adding the low water alert setttings, and access to 18 months of humidity and temperature history.
In addition to the Smart Humidor™ brand launch, Cigar Oasis will also be introducing its updated IOS/Android apps and web login. In addition to a complete facelift, swifter response, and more user-friendly functionality, the Mobile Apps will now share all the features of the web login including; low water alert settings and access to the full 18 months of humidity and temperature history.
“We are definitely out of beta mode now and our goal is to make the Smart Humidor™ a household staple for every serious cigar consumer.” Said Chaim Kohn, sales manager at Cigar Oasis.
Plans are for the new Apps to be rolled out September 1st.
