We currently purchase lighting products with built-in Zigbee communications capability. The purpose of Zigbee in this case is to allow the function of the lights (ON/OFF & dimming) to be controlled by an app on a phone or tablet.
The app also connects to sensors, such as daylight harvesters and motion detection sensors. These sensors are used to control the ON/OFF & dimming functions.
Time of day/week settings can also be set in the app and instructions given to the light.
Unfortunately, the app that comes standard with this product is cumbersome and unreliable. Consequently, we wish to develop our own, user-friendly version of such software that we can interface with the lighting products we buy.
If you are familiar with Zigbee and a skilled programmer in this field, we need to hear from you.
The aim of this project is to scope out the requirements and develop an implementation plan. Upon successful completion, we'll then move onto designing the interface (UX design) and then actual coding and testing of the solution.
Our preference is to develop the app for Android.
