How does it work?
What the Noon system enables is the ability to have all of your light switches coordinate their control to be able to enable dramatically different activities and moods simply by selecting the right scene to match your mood or activity. The Room Director is where users can select their scene, easily swiping through scenes on the touch screen.
Customize your Lighting Scenes
The switches also connect to a mobile app allowing users to access all of their lighting controls from the convenience of their phone.
Sketching in Wireframes
Because of the relative complexity of the system and the way that different switches had to connect and communicate with each other, choreographing the setup steps very clearly to users was critical. We developed out a series of different user flows to try and identify the setup flow that would have the least likelihood of failure and would be the most intuitive for a homeowner to set up, whether they buy one switch or want to replace the switches in an entire house.
Refining Screen Design
We developed out the Mobile app from top to bottom, including onboarding, home screen automation and scheduling as well as settings. Designing every screen possible for this app across both Android and iOS gave us a great perspective of the opportunities and challenges that a Smarthome or Connected Devices experience would entail.
Prototyping & Animating
Light is dynamic and so the Noon app had to have a dynamic and lively character to it. We designed the home screen with animated transitions that felt playful and friendly to encourage interaction and exploration within the app.
