CIVE Smart Home was my master’s thesis which deals with the design and prototypical implementation of a smart home system. Using methods of interaction design for the Internet of Things a product was conceptualized that can link different objects, information and people together.
More and more devices in a household can be connected to a network, to offer interconnectivity. The basis for a Smart Home concept was created through insights into existing smart home systems, diary procedures and studies about the Internet of Things and Smart Home.
The concept was strengthened with help of Scenario-based Design in order to be experienced as a prototype with the Node-RED tool on a Raspberry Pi. The prototype provides various possibilities for extension and more complex automation by the user, who can include further scenarios and appliances.
