rscott78 got their new app design by running a design contest:
Design home automation app to control lights
Check out rscott78's App design contest…
This app is a home controller. With it you can view which lights are on, turn them off or set the dim level of the light. You can control thermostats, door locks, view IP cameras and motion sensor status.
I'd like a modern, high-tech look for the app. Check out the screen shots from the Minimalistic Text app on android -- it feels like a very modern app with the accented text used throughout: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.devmil.minimaltext&hl=en This is another similar app to mine; though I don't want to "rip off" their design, I do find it appealing: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.enblink.bagon Our current app is here and can be used to understand the functionality of the app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mls.incontrol.home.automation&feature=search_result# This design should be usable in both Android, Windows Phone 8 and iOS.
InControl Home Automation
The home screen provides an overview of what's going on in the house -- things such as total watts used, which lights & devices are on, favorites (a list of lights that are most commonly used), etc. The user taps a device and can interact with that device by turning it on, setting the dim, etc. For this contest, I'd like two screens designed (I'll be upgrading the contest to show 2 screens with an increased payout). These two screens are: Screen #1: Home screen In general, the home screen should work as a type of dashboard where the user can see what's going on in the house and access quick functions. The app navigation could begin here as well; for example, I might tap on a shortcut that says "12 devices on" and see a new page showing me all of the devices that are currently on. Some possible things that will be on the home screen: - How many lights are on currently - How much energy is the house using right now? (tap to see a historical log of energy usage) - Favorite (tap to see a list of favorite devices) - Scene activation (user defines scenes in PC app which could then be custom-activated from here) Screen #2: Device List Screen Show a device list screen. When the user navigates, they will almost always end up at a screen with a list of devices. These devices will provide the user the ability to interact with and change the device. Additionally, there should be a way for the user to "select" a device to perform more detailed interactions on the device. For example, a dimmer might provide a way to turn the light on or off and set the brightness from the list screen. The user could then "select" the dimmer and would see a popup to do things like set a timer to turn it off, adjust the pre-set levels, etc. For your design of this screen, please try to incorporate at least one of each of these devices: - Dimmer: User will turn it on/off and adjust the brightness from the list item. Selecting it shows a popup with level presets, etc. - Thermostat: User will see the current state (Heating, turned on? current temp). User taps to make changes to it in a popup window. - Door lock: User will be able to see if the door is locked or unlocked and should be able to lock or unlock it from the list. - Motion Sensor: This is a "read only" device -- it'll only show the state of the device, such as motion detected or not. No user interaction is possible. ICONS The following is a list of icons the app will use. Please provide them in a large format 512x512 PNG or as an AI vector graphic - Energy Usage - Power Devices: this shows all devices that are on. This will includes, lights, dimmers, thermostats, locks, etc. So it needs to be something that can illustrate that a device is on but not so restricting as a light bulb, since that is only one type of device - Thermostat - Dimmer Light On - Dimmer Light off - Standard light (not a dimmer) on - Standard light (not a dimmer) off - Lock (locked) - Lock (unlocked) - Ip Camera - Motion Sensor (no motion) - Motion Sensor (motion detected) - Door/Window sensor (See here for reference of what they look like: http://goo.gl/69TtD) opened - Door/Window sensor closed - Sensor (generic sensors which normally just shows a reading) - Siren (silent/off) - Siren (making noise/on) - Outlet (on) - Outlet (off) - Rooms (tapping this icon will show the user a list of rooms) - Scenes (a scene is a pre-defined "view" of the lights, such as "Movie Time" or "Reading Scene") - Water sensor (no water detected) - Water sensor (water detected)
