We were approached to design a distinctively different and stylish product aesthetics for a range of Smart Home Automation products that would stand out and acquire a leadership position in the targeted market segment.
We delved into studying the electronic components and finally proposed an internal layout which provided a common base to create multiple functions. Thus, creating a poly-functional design.
We ended up not only designing the enclosure but also the internal electronic architecture along with the clients R&D team to be able to achieve the poly-functional design.
The 1st product is an IR Blaster which gives access to all InfraRed enabled devices such as AC, TV, Projector, Music System etc. It is used to control all the home / office appliances and devices from your Smartphone.
The 2nd product is a Motion Detector and Occupancy Sensor. It can do a wide variety of functions including Intrusion Detection and Energy Savings amongst many others.
The 3rd product is a Smoke Detector and the 4th is a Contact-Less IR Thermal Sensor with WiFi App support for installation at public entry points to detect high body temperature. It also houses an internal Buzzer for highlighting abnormal cases.
The cost of a product lies at the tip of the pencil. We have always tried to create solutions that deliver a greater value than their input cost. The objective was to keep the input cost very low in terms of investment in the tooling for the plastic parts. A common enclosure was created with a detachable design element so that by changing the top deco, the same body enclosure could be used to build multiple products with different applications. Designed and developed in India for HomeOne Technologies LLP. Year: 2020.
