Teros Home Security System

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Teros connects and protects your entire home, not just a room as with other all-in-one home security devices. We worked with a third-party vendor called Abode that developed the hardware, and Asurion rebranded it. Since May 2017, the Teros Home Security System has been sold across all Verizon 24 stores in the pilot region of North Georgia. The primary purpose of this product was to explore the market for home security.

ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITY

Collaborated with marketing account managers, project managers, copywriters and sales representatives. Created a variety of mediums from print to digital including consumer packing, printed product, website design, marketing plan layout, email, social media assets, brand creation and other types of communications. Directed animation agency(Pigeon) to create the video and gif animations.

WEBSITE WIREFRAMES

WEBSITE DESIGN

Designed and built teroshome.com website with our branding messages with warm, friendly, reliable and same visual language.

MOBILE APP

Like the hardware, Abode developed the app and we rebranded and tweaked the app to modify for Asurion.

ONBOARDING EXPERIENCE - USER TESTING

We tested onboarding experience at the office with two product directors and one engineer. Here are some of the issues we found during testing. Based on our testing we tried to fix the problems for improvement.

 

1. Needed to speak to Teros Guardian agent to confirm whether we needed to activate/pay first and then start the setup process with a live agent 

2. Taking too long to respond. It took around 4 minutes to link up to a live agent via chat.

3. Asurion packaging did not have any printed guides.

4. The Teros Home app – Needed correcting since the app is posted as Teros Home

5. teroshome.com/install and it was broken

6. If customer linked into Teros Help app from the Teros Home app, there was no way to escape the chat thread to make a voice call instead.
