We’ve completely transformed the way this small shopping centre operates.Whilst there’s several separate shop areas in the centre, they’re all owned and run by the same person, and now that person can control all lighting and blinds from one device, rather than having to walk around the centre switching lights on or off. Trading scenes have been added so the user can simply press ‘day’ or ‘night’ and the brightness of the lights will adjust accordingly. We created a simple interface design with a floor plan which features indicators to show which lights are turned on.
Rather than having multiple pages on the interface, we’ve implemented the use of ‘widgets’ which are a form of pop-up that appears when a button is pressed. Widgets were the perfect tool for this job as it means minimal navigation between areas since this job was relatively small in terms of the amount of lights. Usability is our number one priority!
