“We are the original manufacturer of the GL.iNet mini smart router. Our smart router has been used by makers and hobbyists to build smart home gateways, IoT WiFi connection modules, industrial control modules and other smart applications. We received a lot of nice feedback, comments and suggestions. Thanks and it is really nice to see all these makers building great prototypes and projects for fun.
However, to transform these ideas into real products can be a big challenge. On one hand, the hardware products used in DIY projects are generally very expensive, and it is difficult to get them in small quantities for a low price.
On the other hand, it is not easy to design electronics suitable for manufacturing or find the resources for mass production. This is why we launched the Domino.IO Project, consisting of hardware modules and boards, software and much more by providing a full life-cycle service for makers.”
