In their continuous process of innovation, they decided to deliver something that will give their customers the power to operate from wherever they are in the world!
With expertise with their expertise in connected product strategies, our team at [x]cube understood that this was going to be about value-addition and selecting the right set of tech features was as critical as the seamless performance of the end product itself. We started with the need assessment of the client, ideated with them multiple times, proposed design and delivered the solution that surpassed client expectations.
Our client found that one thing which affects the beauty of their customers’ light shows was having to manually operate them using traditional operating equipment. In fact, to manually turn the lights on and off at a regular setup that was dependent on an operator’s physical presence was identified as another pain point. Being the customer-centric organization that they are, they wanted to implement a solution that would ease their customers from this inconvenience.
The solution sounds simple, but the idea to connect the products in a manner that they could be operated from anywhere around the globe involved critical assessments, a thorough understanding of the existing underlying hardware of the products, identifying the most compatible and efficient integration and deep testing. Our team took this challenge and proved once again why we are known for solving hard problems at high speed.
We delivered a solution that allowed the users to operate their lights from anywhere. We specifically designed a Wifi Bridge that communicates with their traditional hardware and a user-friendly mobile application to operate the lights. To provide better user experience, we also implemented voice integration. The product can be operated by both the leading voice assistants Alexa and Google Home.
The solution also implemented voice integration which took the user experience up by another level.
- Switching the lights from anywhere: A connected mobile device that lets users operate from anywhere in the world.
- Synchronizing the lights: Users can synchronize how your lights get powered on.
- Schedule: Operating lights can be scheduled either by manually setting the time or set based on the local weather that tunes it with sunrise and sunset timing.
- Voice Integration: Users can control the lights through Alexa and Google home.
With control made easy and the value addition in the form of voice integration, both the client and their customers received the product well. Renowned for breakthrough innovations, the client set a new benchmark in the industry with the impeccable solution delivered by [x]cube.
