Ecobee thermostats use thousands of data points to automatically make intelligent, and personalized heating and cooling decisions to save you money on energy costs. While at LUNAR I had the opportunity to work on the visual and interaction design in a couple areas of the app. The first area was the idle screen when the device is not in use which in the end was decided needed to show the current temperature and weather. The other area I worked on was the temperature adjust dial. Since this is one of the main touch points of the app it was important for it to be iconic and memorable. We iterated on plenty of ideas and worked with the software engineers to figure out limitations with processing power on the device so we could be sure that the animations played back properly. Through out the alpha and beta stages in the app development I also provided feedback to the engineers in areas which I thought could improve or that were working really well.
