Objective: Imagine how a touch interface for a central home control center might look.
Touchscreen technology presents an excellent chance to create malleable interfaces that can serve more than one purpose. In this example, a wall mounted device can assume control over as many household functions as sensors and smart appliances will allow. From home security to thermostat functions; from monitoring power and water consumption to controlling lights and preheating the oven from your bedroom, the future of the smart home is incredibly exciting. Whether idle or active, the status of the security system will be visible at all times.
A touch screen is more realistic in this situation, but once again this design was created before the adoption of flat user interface styles. I think the premise of a smart home control panel still holds creedence, and would focus on a more contemporary redesign and companion mobile application.
