Design a product for AT&T’s small business customers to increase their business knowledge and drive actions for improvements. IoT is a family of devices that create relevant data using AT&T’s cloud service.
When connected to each other, they communicate information about internal states and external environments. The data being collected can be transformed into stories on business, their customers lifestyles, behaviour patterns, preferences, input, etc.
Each device has an iBeacon incorporated, which together build a local network. When applied to business it helps locate people instantly to deliver contextual content, or enhancing security by quickly identifying issued devices.
The products were conceptualised according to their key components, and designed through organising their structural features based on the relationship between elements and the environment.
iBeacon is the local positioning technology used to understand each single device and mobile devices’ position on a micro-scale.
Each device has an iBeacon incorporated, which together build a local network. It helps enhancing security by quickly identifying issued device(s).
By determining people’s direction, the system becomes an advantage when designing a store layout to better promote a specific service or product.
Dwell time map
Determine immobilized time within a controlled area, helps measure attention, curiosity, or impact. This identifies the highest average density of people in an area.
Connected to the network, it's possible to locate people instantly and deliver hyper-contextual content or offer them services based on their location.
Router’s screen rotates according to the display’s position (always facing the user). Each device can connect to the hub by clicking the pair button on the router and device. Local network connection creates a secure environment for pairing.
Smart system allows fully access through a mobile phone, tablet or computer by logging into an account (website or app).
Native Operative System
Easy pair button with:
The camera has a built-in motion sensor that sends an alert to users' device whenever it detects movement. It also activates an automatic or on request recording.
Body attached to the base magnetically, which allows for easy detachment and independent use, as well as, rotate and adjust the camera globe in any angle and direction (adapts to any corner, eliminating blind-zones).
For better video quality, the camera has built-in LED lights for night mode. They turn on automatically when movement is detected.
Built-in lithium battery and iBeacon. In case of a power outage, the lithium battery assures the normal functioning
Base Support which also works as power charger for the camera.
The plug outlet sends usage reports (to router) for energy monitoring — data gathered for all plugged devices.
Rotation plug pins for flexible power plugging.
Built-in lithium battery
The contact sensor was designed to easily fit any corner of doors, windows or other places.
It attaches using power strips, so its use is not limited to placement and surface.
The product is equipped with a secondary surface that attaches a wall using power strips. Then the router holds and detaches to the surface through wall mount brackets.
The embedded plug pins are supported in a rotating base which allows to plug the outlet in any direction. This also avoids covering other plug sockets
The layout and space between each socket was designed to ensure the accommodation of the majority of plugs without interrupting each other.
Visibility and Accessibility
The router’s placement is varied and flexible, as placing a router on top of a desk is a common scenario.
The tilted front, helps people to easily access and attach/ detach plugs from the power, independently of the router’s height and orientation.
Intends to clarify the product’s purpose, it should make it talk. It recognises and enhances the product’s language by clearly displaying each device individually and as a bundled set. It identifies the purpose of each device making them intuitive and accessible for customers.
