HUNTERDOUGLAS PLATINUM IS AN IPAD AND IPHONE APPLICATION TO CONTROL WINDOW COVERINGS OVER A WIFI NETWORK.
How do you take an engineer’s idea and make it ready for the consumer market? While the “mad scientist’s” solution was technically brilliant, it also required a Ph.D. to connect all of the parts (window shades, home network and mobile devices). To a homeowner, the out-of-the-box solution would have been a hurdle not worth the reward.
We started by identifying all of the steps required to connect a mobile device to the window coverings, and then researched solutions to simplify the process. Ultimately, we were able to remove more than 50% of the process by letting the application do the work behind the scenes. We then wrapped the solution into a slick design with easy-to-use features.
