Internet of Things

Oct 2020,

In this project we helped improve the usability of the smart lighting controls of a customer from the lighting industry. Their existing products already offered significant benefits to smart home lighting solutions and we were able to provide the control systems to match that success.

The
Challenge

There is currently a wide range of “smart lighting” products that, in fact, are not really that smart at all.
They just offer the capability to control the color or intensity of the light via an app.

The
Solution

With our solution, the desired type of lighting around your house can be learned by sensor input and your schedul. As our reserach phase showed, most users prefer having direct control of their light, which is why we created an intuitive new switch as well.

The
Impact

We designed an innovative new switch utilizing unique haptic and intuitive user interface. The product focuses on controlling smart light bulbs. They’re the perfect addition to the smart home.
