Heatmiser Challenge

The Challenge

Heatmiser’s existing mobile application was
complicated to use, with layers of unnecessary
webs of information overloading. The user often
found themselves lost, this decreased their overall
user-engagement, which meant less and less
people were using their heating control app.

Our focus: Enchanting user experience

We understood the information architecture of the
app, and found out how it will help the users of this app.
We deployed a human centric approach to design, and
used powerful IoT technologies to provide tech-enabled
heating control solutions for the entire house, segregated
by user profiles. This resulted in an immersive user
experience, more engagement and more control.

We gave control back to the users

Using one single mobile application for heating control, we gave the control back to the users.
Not only can they now manage temperate settings with minimal clicks/taps, but they can also control
temperature at each nook and corner of the house, create profiles, and deploy time-based
temperature control. A new paradigm in IoT powered smart home mobile app.

Our Success Recipe

Using a combination of IoT technologies, human-centric user interface and
automation rules, we turbocharged Heatmiser’s heating control solutions with
advanced features. This helped both Android and iOS users to
save upto 50% off their energy bills.

Minimalistic user interface

Minimalistic user interface

We conceptualized & designed user journeys based on the
information architecture of the app, and enabled upto 15-times
more user-engagement. Our minimalistic approach to user-interface
proved to be a big hit with the overall user experience.

Smart profile based settings

Smart profile based settings

Using profile settings, users of Heatmiser can now set their
temperature control based on various factors such as location, time of
the day and more. This gives more control and flexibility to the
end-users, and heating control becomes easy.

Multizone heating control

Multizone heating control

We facilitated upto 32 zones for smart heating control, that covered
every corner and section of the house. These detailed geolocations,
combined with smart profiles translates to more flexibility,
and more control for temperature settings.

Using one single mobile interface, the user can control the
temperature of the entire home, based on geolocation settings
and profile. We call it IoT based magic.

Conclusion

Heatmiser wanted a robust, powerful and comprehensive mobile application
that enabled their users to control and monitor temperature, across every part of
their house. We not only conceptualized a delightful, and minimalistic user-design,
but also leveraged the power of IoT and machine learning to develop
a smart app, for a smart home.
