Connected home monitoring
Anyware & IMID
We collaborated with innovative startup Anyware Solutions to help them develop the concept and design of the Anyware Smart Adaptor™.
The Anyware Smart Adaptor™ is the world’s smartest and smallest connected lamp socket adaptor designed to provide next generation home automation for everyone. Easy to install and use it offers unprecedented feature richness from advanced lighting control to seamless home monitoring and security, thanks to its built-in ambient light, sound, temperature and humidity sensors.
Successfully funded through an INDIEGOGO campaign.
The compact challenge
A small compact size was imperative for optimal bulb position in a lamp holder. Trying to solve space issues through using the same size thread in both the lamp socket and Smart Adaptor to fit the bulb simply did not work. We overcame this through working on a range of concepts and decided on an idea to step down the size of bulb thread fitting to the adaptor from E27/E26 to E14/12. This mean’t a shorter length bulb and reduced the overall height when connected with the adaptor.
Fitting to environment and considered detailing
We intended the design to fit in with the standard lamp holder components for an integrated installed look. The tapered form provides space for the internal components and speaks to the spread of a beam of light. We tied the brand and functions subtly together in the detailing.
