Switch to a smart home

Lumos is a smart home automation product. It provides an end to end solution for automating basic electronic operations like switching on/off lights fans or anything that you control via a switchboard. The firm had planned two products for their initial launch, a mobile application and a smart switchboard.

I helped out Lumos, in ideating how their switchboard can replace the existing switchboards without any major changes in terms of form and operation.

Lumos is a startup which focuses on building products that simplify home automation. The company intended to build smart electrical switches that can automate all electrical appliances in a home. These switches learn from user behavior and have inbuilt sensors that allow them to track ambient conditions and human presence to take accurate automation decisions.

Project Brief To design electrical switch and fan motor that can be operated both automatically and manually

Design Principles
  • Seemless experienceSwitches/motor on-off state should be same for manual and automatic operations

  • Fit & finishPeople should be able to install the same number of these switches in the current holes they have created in their walls

  • AffordableDesign should not increase cost of switches radically

  • Natural & IntuitiveViscerally & functionally the switches shouldn’t change much when compared to existing manual ones

  • UniversalDesigning for both tech savvy & technologically handicapped

Explorations Green/Red light on the respective border of the switch to indicate the state of it. The design and placement of the switch is consistent to old switches. This is a subtle way of representing the state of switch, which is not drastically different from what a user is used to.
