Altlight - smart home
Design & Market Research
Colour, Material and Finish (CMF)
Home is yours. It’s the place where you share you most precious time with family and friends, where you feel cosy, where you feel you. You make home yours. What if your home was adapting to you? What if you know when and how save energy? Maybe you need another light switch? Or control temperature remotely? Maybe you want to get rid of keys?
Altlight is a smart system that let you expand your home basic usability. Now you can measure energy, add light switch in where you want or control many functions from the programmable remote or app.
I have worked with Summer Agency on the product design and CMF. We developed design language for future Altlight products focusing on smart-tag, remote controller and a switch.
Altlight Remote Controller
Altlight’s remote controller is characterised by semi-transparent housing and slightly concave surface on top. Modest form hides advanced functionality. Remote controller can be programmed to control different smart home accessories e.g.: controlling temperature, lighting or blinds.
The knob rotates gently and functions can be cycled through by pressing the knob.
Switch is a very simple device. It was inspired by traditional light switch but unlike light switches it can be placed anywhere and runs on battery. Data is transferred via Bluetooth Low Energy to other Altlight accessories that control our home.
Smart-tag feature lies in RFID technology. Proximity sensor trigger certain programmed actions in other Altlight products for example it can be programmed to open locks or log presence in certain places (e.g. reserving conference room).
