Business Needs

eCozy is a Germany-based startup producing a Red Dot Design awarded IoT thermostat for water radiators.

The client was building a device that uses a design-driven approach and helps save up to 30% of annual heating costs. A smart heating solution consists of a system with a touchscreen thermostat-controlled central unit and an application for iOS and Android for remote management.

The main challenge was to offer a much better user experience by eliminating the pain of setup, calibration, and the maintenance of a digital thermostat.

Solution

The team at GlobalLuxSoft was hired to solve the challenge that none of a few outsourced technical teams were able to go through - to create both Android and iOS mobile software to manage IoT hardware devices.
The team integrated hardware and industrial protocols into the app. In particular, we integrated a CIP protocol and voice commands through the API using Amazon and Alexa.
Our engineers used a lot of protocols from the real world that should have been integrated with both the software and the hardware.
We helped our client move forward on the project side, as well as the technological side. Over a few weeks, the team at Globalluxsoft worked quickly with the marketing team to provide custom static content presentations, drip-campaign automation, and a virtual showroom.

Key Features
