Scope aims to make the country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. They provide support, information and advice to more than a quarter of a million disabled people and their families every year.
Scope asked us to develop an accessible universal remote control app that controls various devices through infrared technology.
SmartHub is an accessible app for home automation. The app is fully accessible to switch users and quick and intuitive to learn. It functions as a universal remote for infrared devices. The app integrates social media APIs to keep users connected.
Users have the option of making scene pages with one central image underneath resizable, reshapable hotspots; or use a pre-built grid with 9 regularly spaced, regularly sized hotspots.
The accessibility controls available in SmartHub include: switch access, force delay and audio instructions. Touch anywhere access is also included, allowing users to turn their iPad screen into a switch.
