Sensor Update is Available

Hi QLIPPTM fans,

We are excited to announce that there will be a firmware update for all your sensors. The update will allow user to disable the blinking light on the sensor while recording a session in the PLAY screen. Currently the update is only available on Android devices. iOS devices will get the update shortly.

Follow the steps to perform the update:

*Make sure that you have updated QLIPPTM Tennis App to the latest version

*Make sure that the sensor is at least 2/3 charged, otherwise the update button will be disabled

  1. Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it
    has some overlapping. I just wanted to give
    you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!

  2. Just started using my Qlipp and so far so good!

    Couple of feedback/questions:
    — the blinking light is distracting to opponents (but I think you know that). When can we expect the IOS upgrade for this feature?
    — Serve detection doesn’t seem to be as accurate. Many of my serves I think are being detected as forehands. I’m a lefty with a heavy spin serve (mostly slice serves).
    — If I use my racquet to bounce the ball (like before a serve) or to pass the ball to another player between points, does Qlipp record this a stroke?
    — What do you think the difference is between a sensor on the strings (like Qlipp) vs in the butt cap (like Sony)?

    1. Hi David,

      Thank you for your comment and feedback. We are glad that your experience with QLIPP was good!

      To answer your questions:
      – Our team is currently working on the iOS update for this feature. We will announce it once the update is available. We seek your patience for the update to launch.
      – Our algorithm to detect serve is rather strict and it only detect specific types of full swing serve. We are currently working to find a way that will cater to different types of serves.
      – QLIPP doesn’t record this kind of strokes. However, if you hit hard enough, it might be recorded as a volley.
      – Our sensor have advantage over others as it doesn’t affect the player’s grip, it is very small and light, and it works with almost every model of tennis racquet (and strings) in the market.

      Thank you once again for your support. Hope the answers above helps!

    1. Hi Todd,

      Thank you for your feedback. Please be assured that the update is never overlooked and that our team is currently working on the iOS update. We seek your patience for the update to launch. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. Thank you for your support!

  3. The serve detection algorithm seems unnecessarily narrow – most of my slice serves are detected as forehands. Why not measure serves and overheads together and broaden the detection algorithm to capture both?

    1. Hi David,

      Thanks for your suggestion. Our team is working to improve the algorithm. There will be an update coming soon. Do look out for it!

  4. One more suggestion — in the next model put the micro-usb port on the top if possible so you can recharge without removing the Qlipp 🙂

  5. Hi, I am running latest Android version 1.2.4 with a Qlipp sensor with firmware version 1.4. I’d like to update to 1.5 but the firmware update option in the settings is not present. How can this problem be solved? Thanks.
