Our team set out with one unique challenge, what if you could design a programmable thermostat wasn’t programmed on the actual product? Months of consumer research led us to determine what were the essential features on the thermostat for the consumer. This allowed us to minimalize the physical product.

 Remote control of temperature and mode are adjustable on a consumer’s mobile device from any location, on an application specific to the thermostat.

All scheduling, settings and adjustments are done on a PC with a harmoniously designed application specific to the thermostat. 


A total of five themes were presented on conceptualized boards to each consumer with concepts ranging from full LCD dashboard on home walls to watch display sizes of just temperature. Our discussion of these concepts with consumers guided our final design direction.

This innovative display required months of communication between me and our design team and manufacturing to ensure all details were perfected.


Our project goal of a clean appearance drove a cross-continent commitment to necessary challenges and focus closely on the details that produced a truly elevated final product.
