Smart home application design.

PROJECT OVERVIEW.

Smart home application design
  • The product: Smart home application design.
  • The problem: Smart home residents tend to own multiple smart devices and want to control them. They want to make them work together under a single app which is impossible sometimes as some smart devices are not compatible with existing smart home apps.
  • The goal: Design an app that allows users to control home appliances from anywhere with the Internet.
  • My role: UX/UI designer, UX researcher
  • Responsibilities: Conducting interviews, paper, and digital wireframing, low and high-fidelity prototyping, conducting usability studies, accounting for accessibility, and iterating on designs.

User research: summary.

I conducted interviews and created empathy maps to understand the users I’m designing for and their needs. A user group identified through research was homeowners wanting to track their energy management and corporate offices to automate devices on a larger scale.

Digital wireframes.

Taking the time to draft iterations of each page, I ensured that the elements were well-suited to address user pain points. Easy navigation was a fundamental user need to address in the designs in addition to being clear and straightforward.

Usability study.

II conducted two rounds of usability studies. Findings from the first study helped guide the designs from wireframes to mockups. The second study used a high-fidelity prototype and revealed what aspects of the mockups needed refining.
