Bridging the digital with the physical to create a smarter home
Beautiful light is emotional. Noon Home had a vision of creating a light switch system that knows enough about your lights to create beautifully synchronized lighting in your home. We worked on creating a comprehensive UX that started from the out of the box experience, setup and installation all the way to everyday usage and 3rd Party Integrations. Not only did we we design the mobile app, but we also designed the light switch’s entire User Interface.
Noon entered the crowded smart home space with a focus on lighting design. Our assignment was to build a system that made people fall in love with their homes all over again, with lighting configurations for every room and any occasion, powered by an intuitive app and smart light switch hardware.
Mobile App UX / UI Design
Embedded Device UX/UI
Noon users customize and control their light settings with wall mounted switches as well as a mobile app. We designed both of these experiences systematically so that users move seamlessly between the light switch and their phone, swiping and selecting the perfect mood.
The setup process had to scale for customers who only replaced one light switch to those who overhauled their entire homes. We designed user flows that balanced precision with ease, allowing users to tweak settings without getting bogged down in the process.
Think of the frustration that syncs in when assembling complicated IKEA furniture – this is exactly the experience we wanted to avoid.
Because the Noon Switch allowed users to create custom light scenes, it felt important to make equally inspiring visual icons that users could pick to reflect the mood or function of a specific scene. We differentiated from the competition with full color icons that blend into the switch and provide visual cues to immediately set the mood.
Developing every mobile screen for both Android and iOS required us to thoroughly consider expected experience design patterns across both operating systems. Noon promises accessibility, so it was critical that any customers could use the app.
Light is dynamic. So is the Noon app. We designed the home screen with animated transitions that felt playful and friendly to encourage interaction and exploration.
The digital experience for the Noon Home switches was considered a highly intuitive and well designed UX. The Noon App received 4.9 stars in the Apple App Store. Noon was acquired by RacePoint technologies in 2020.
