SURVO | Home Connectivity & Security Unifier

SURVO is based on an idea that a single unit of a device would work as a unified intelligence center for all internet of things within the user’s home. It may resemble some functionalities available on products currently available in the market.

The main functionality of SURVO is to monitor, notify and act based on series of commands customized by the user or the selected preset of commands.

The connected screen will show the various channels within the network. It works with methods of input that is provided with the connected devices. Output function includes displaying droid captured images/media to display on the main screen of user’s choosing through a remote connection.

The dashboard would show location, activities, and energy usage of each connected device if such details are available to display.

The wall interface created was based on an assumption that the screen would be a 55 inch touchscreen television. SURVO is connected to the display device as a unifier for all connected devices within its IoT system. The user can activate the screen for interaction by voice, touch or connected devices.

SURVO – main screen
Main Screen

First common task would be to access the visual surveillance of the home. The main screen is divided by the number of screens requested by the user. The user can also have option to see a specific surveillance area in a full-screen.

Frequently used voice command keywords are displayed on the left bottom corner of the main screen. In direct manipulation, the user would walk up to the display and touch the screen to activate input modules.

SURVO – individual view
Individual View

Second common task will be focused on a specific surveillance area. The individual view shown on left is a view from a drone camera. The user can initiate flight mode which allows the user to control the movement of the camera.

The screen also shows the details on the device being controlled, the name of the room, operation/functionality options, input device being used. Additionally, alternative input cues are displayed for direct input or voice commands.


The Dashboard interface informs the user of the various settings and details available from individual device connected to SURVO. The dashboard can be accessed through a user account. The main user can set multiple user accounts and the feed can be shared with others such as a security company.

SURVO – dashboard home page
Home Page

The home page shows notification logs, news and updates from SURVO, and device information (device name, energy level, consumption rating, location, operation type, and firmware update setting). The tap section has links to other pages.

SURVO – dashboard energy consumption
Energy Consumption

The Energy Consumption page shows the amount of energy used by the devices compared to the approved range set by the user. The user also gets information relating to other energy efficient ways to reduce energy consumption and new product listings.


Front Door Alert

The first screen shows the call-in function, which is triggered by someone buzzing the front door.

The screen shows the trigger location name and options for the voice interaction and the dismissal of the notification. If the device connected provides a live feed, the user will have an option to access the feed before interacting with the buzzer.

Entry Alert

The second screen shows a notification center which alerts the users if a known or an unknown person has entered their home.

The known visitor will be noted by their name and a call function will be available for the user. The user can create a customized settings to deal with an unknown visitor or disturbance.
