BuddyGuard Home Security App - UI/UX


BuddyGuard Home Security App is a UI/UX project designed and shared by Bureau Oberhaeuser. The goal of the app is to control a camera and security system called FLARE, a smart system that updates itself. There are lot of cool things about this project, but for me the main reason is the challenges of designing an app like that. What sometimes might seem trivial becomes a huge set of flows and edge cases.

Product description

FLARE is the world’s first security system that protects your home all by itself. It uses Artificial Intelligence to identify people and rapidly analyzes every situation before taking action. To control your FLARE we designed the BuddyGuard app to enable an intuitive communication with the device. The app guides you through the setup for installation and features like geolocation, face and voice recognition. Showing a live video and a stream of relevant events below you can always monitor your home, select other locations, change your device settings or invite friends to your security circle.
