nCube Smart Home Hub

The 21st century has seen the rapid expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT), but the rise of multiple apps for controlling home appliances has unnecessarily complicated something that was supposed to be simple.

Map was commissioned to design a solution to this frustration in the form of nCube, an app and physical hub that combines the IoT’s disparate functions into one interface.

Map created nCube to be an accessible entry point for those looking for a seamless experience of the connected home space. Everything about nCube is purposefully simple and intuitive, from its accompanying app down to the product’s physical packaging.

Users can easily make connections between products that use different platforms such as Nest, Sonos and Philips Hue, and control them all through nCube. The bright blue device fits easily into the palm of your hand, with this colour scheme continuing through the easy-to-use app that allows you to control all of your home technology from one convenient place.
