Honeywell Vision Pro 8000
What It Is
Honeywell approached the consultancy I was working with to pick up post-research design development for a major update to their top-selling Vision Pro thermostat. Moving from a purely fixed segment UI, the new version was going to have a hybrid screen with fixed segments and a small pixel grid. This line of thermostats is designed with contractors in mind, so it typically installed in new homes, or by professional home improvement contractors.
When I Did It
What I Did
My main focus on this project was to design the new UX/UI for the Vision Pro 8000. While there were certain restrictions regarding screen elements that Honeywell wanted to remain the same, optimizing the dynamic pixel element of the display allowed for creative setting and navigation efficiencies. I worked closely with one of Honeywell's lead UI engineers to understand the technological limitations and implementation considerations.
- Ingest extensive research documentation
- Develop personas
- Task analysis
- Competitive analysis
- Facilitate innovation sessions with client team
- Conceptualization (sketching and storyboarding)
- Information Architecture
- Prototype development
- Usability testing
- Screen design & specification
How I Did It
- Pencil and Paper
- Adobe Creative Suite
- Client Engagement (Engineering and Product/Marketing)
- After successful usability testing, I finalized the design and delivered screen specs. Honeywell's long development cycle put it into their hands for at least a year before the product was actually launched. The Vision Pro 8000 can readily found through various online retail resources.
