Having a smart home can mean a lot more than switching your lights on with your phone. Positioned at the emerging market of the Internet of Things (IOT), Samsung SmartThings educates visitors on home automation, suggesting a wide variety of products with which to build an interconnected network of devices. For its site, New York– and Amsterdam–based digital design firm Your Majesty Co. created a site with a future-proof framework, enabling it to feel timeless as more products with smart-home capabilities are released. High-end product images and video content drive the narrative throughout the site, showcasing and explaining the value of products to visitors. A “wow moment” module serves up smart home combinations tailored to each individual’s lifestyle, and an interactive timeline enables users to discover what their IOT-capable products can do throughout the day. Your Majesty Co. based the site’s CMS on Contentful and built it with CSS, Gulp.js, HTML, Koa 2.0, Node.js, Redis and WebComponents; layered SVG animations on the site were made accessible on all browsers and mobile devices.
