An Integration of the Iris by Lowe’s smart home system into a fun holiday-themed app by continuing the use of the current framework and adding custom components.
The Santa Tracker app works as a stand-alone application to promote the brand and allow possible future holiday and other one off themed promotional apps
The project was given a week’s timeline for both design and evelopment. As such, many resuable elements had to be designed.
There were two versions of the Santa Tracker app. One inside the current Iris app, and a stand alone app that could be used without an Iris hub and system.
Santa tracker was designed relying heavily on the design system of the main Iris app. This allowed current users to navigate comfortably and allowed for the fast turn-around time for the project.
“Say what you will about the merits of an all-knowing, judgmental saint from the Arctic Circle. Plenty of parents bend over backward to keep the magic of the holiday alive for their family for as long as possi- ble. That Lowe’s has put out this gimmick app to help is a fun, harmless way to market its smart-home system.” – ANDREW GEBHART [C-Net]
