ALBERT LIN, General Manager, EZVIZ Inc. elaborates on the design and functionality of these lightweight, small and easy to install additions to a smart home ecosystem…
brandnewdaydesigns: Of course there’s considerable attention paid to the functionality of the EZVIZ cameras. Can you elaborate on how their design is a benefit to the consumer?
Albert Lin: Based on years of experience in developing video products for commercial and enterprise markets, EZVIZ puts a lot of emphasis on quality even when it comes to design. EZVIZ blend into the home and household without sacrificing the durability and impacting the video quality. Because of their design, customers can easily set up EZVIZ cameras for different needs inside or outside their house, whether it is a nursery, living room, kitchen or backyard.
bndd: From Husky to Mini O and Mini Plus, the design and look of each camera is very different.
AL: As a nursery camera, the Mini O features a softer look and an oval shape to symbolize a caring figure. Mini Plus is a small camera, probably the smallest 1080p camera in the market. Its small form factor and elegant design makes it easier to blend into the home and household environment, making it less intrusive and easy to forget about it being there protecting them.
While we try to make Mini O and Mini Plus subtle, Husky, on the contrary, is more prominent. Most of the camera is constructed using metal, giving it a solid, rugged look and feel. You can feel the weight and solid construction in your hand. As an outdoor camera, the Husky withstands harsh weather and also serves as a deterrent to crime before it happens.
bndd: Do you have a favorite feature of the EZVIZ App 3.0?
AL: One of our favorites is Daily Recap. With a CloudPlay subscription, the EZVIZ app will deliver a condensed, two-minute video showing the last 24 hours of motion event recording. It allows our customers to quickly find events, whether it’s when the UPS driver stopped by or when the kids were sneaking into the fridge for ice cream, and be part of those treasured moments again. We’re also excited about the revamped video playback interface. The 3.0 version of the EZVIZ app delivers a more natural and easier way to scroll through recorded footage.
bndd: Are consumers becoming more savvy about design? Do they expect products to not only be functional, but well-designed too?
AL: Yes, we believe so. Design is no longer just a cosmetic touch but an integral part of the user experience. EZVIZ products have a lot of thought behind their designs, from choosing the materials to their functionality and durability. Consumers pay close attention to the prices and compare products as well. The product designs have to be appealing, the prices must be competitive, and the user experience is key to winning customers over. A well-designed product must be user friendly for installation, setup, and everyday use.
bndd: Do think consumers underestimate the impact design has on their daily lives?
AL: Focusing purely on the functionality or design of a product is not what consumer expect anymore. We believe, in general, consumers are paying more and more attention to the design of products, but could still be underestimating the importance of it.♦___
