The project all started when my first home was burgled. It ruined the experience and I just couldn’t find an affordable security solution.

The products I purchased were difficult to use and setup within my budget.
As a designer I wanted to create a better solution.

We developed pages and pages of screen designs, this is a sample of how we refined the user experience.

Branding Development

After numerous iterations we choose a logo and trademarked the symbol to protect the intellectual property. We deconstructed the logo to create the icons for the app. I embedded the logo into the product design to create a unique form and design synergy.

UI/UX Development

Devices can be activated/deactivated by clicking the padlock icon. The app retains the list of devices locally. It also checks against the server when it is opened for the most recent list and whether the device is currently active or not.

Crowd Cube Pitch

We had big ambitions for SafetyNet, unfortunately we couldn’t secure any investment in the UK so we had to abandon the project.
