Creating smarter, more comfortable homes with Remo
Nature Remo is a smart remote that makes your entire home ‘smart’ by connecting your home appliances to the Internet. Tinker with the AC, operate the TV or change the lighting on the go from your phone, thanks to AI speaker voice control.
Issues and challenges
Remo is an IoT that controls home appliances, which meant it needed seamless connection settings and a control screen for each appliance. I had to navigate a complicated app set-up and streamline the appliance operations, while making the entire user experience beautiful, simple and intuitive.
Solutions and results

Remo device was released shortly after, to resounding success. Japanese consumers were thrilled to have a tool that made the hot summers more bearable, and sales soared. 300,000+ additional units were put into production.
