Smart home panel

Summary

The main goal of this project was to design the interface of a simplified smart home panel, that would help the homeowners regulate their home environment based on their specific needs. The panel is going to be connected to a mobile app that helps the user keep track of what is happening at home remotely.

What is a Smart Home?

In a nutshell, a smart home refers to a convenient home setup where appliances and devices can be automatically controlled remotely from anywhere with an internet connection using a mobile or other networked device. Devices in a smart home are interconnected through the internet, allowing the user to control functions such as security access to the home, temperature, lighting, and a home theater remotely.

Scope

Role: UI Designer

Type: UI Design, Visual Design

Timeline: 3 days

UI Restrictions

● The UI displays and manipulates features for a single room ​of the home.


● The panel interface and the app interface can be different. However, both are restricted to one view​. Every use case needs to be achieved within this single view. There aren’t multiple sections/screens for the user to navigate to.


● Most features listed below allow manipulation, except the ones listed as indicators or referring to the outdoors.
