WHAT IS THE REIGN APP?
An app that allows users to feel like a king or queen by ruling over various SMART devices in their home. They can control these devices straight from the app and even create events with these devices. Basically making the user feel like royalty.
OVERVIEW AND CHALLENGES - A ROYAL DECREE
The goal of this app to make the user feel like they have complete control of their household devices through their phone. Also, the goal is to keep a multitude of devices under one app. The app should be easy to navigate, but have enough features to make the user feel like they can utilize each device to its fullest.
PRODUCT GOALS - ORDERS FROM THE MONARCHY
Have certain features that are unique to every item. Some devices might only have an on/off feature, but something like a SMART Light might offer more advance controls.
Make it simple for devices to be added and removed.
Theoretically, the app is shown controlling every device in the household to further the concept.

LO FI WIREFRAMES
Although these wireframes were in the earlier stages of the process, there were some early issues to take care of. Firstly, the notifications page needed to be more clear. Also, it was decided at this point of the process that the devices should be divided by room and type of item (Entertainment, Security, and Utility).
