Multi-Zone Proximity Control Technology
The most unique feature of the EverSense® thermostat is it’s Multi-Zone Proximity Control Technology™, which proved to be a little challenging for me to grasp at first, so my initial effort was to fully understand the guidelines of how the EverSense® thermostat’s unique geo-fencing technology actually worked.
I then had to figure out how I was going to visually convey this technology feature to our users in a straightforward and intuitive visual graphic, while also empowering them to control and adjust their own preferred proximity zones through a simple control mechanism of the proximity boundary.
Feature Packed Design
The overall design of the user interface of the EverSense® is that of an attractive and smart thermostat that also has several helpful and entertaining features that users would appreciate.
A few of those features include an easy to read home screen, energy tips to increase home energy use and efficiency, a dedicated streaming music player, a local weather forecast and a control hub for various other smart home devices.
