We love a challenge at Hullabaloo, so we were thrilled when this global company got in touch with us with an exciting new project. Somfy are one of the largest suppliers of home automation products worldwide and they had a great idea to make their website really stand out from the competition – A Virtual Showroom!
The brief was simple, to allow the user to take control of their blinds & curtains and let them open and close them as they would in the real world, and explain all the cool features of the range.
The solution wasn’t so simple, but after some initial testing, we had a plan to make this dream a reality. The resulting site allows the user to enter a real-world environment to select one of the products and then take control using the dedicated remote control (or the app – or voice control) to make the blinds and curtains work like magic!
Our web developers and creative team had to work closely together to make this showroom a reality. We needed all our creativity and coding know-how to develop a fool-proof system that would put the user in complete control of this fully interactive web-based experience.
The end result was a great success and the showroom is now being rolled out in several languages to countries around the world.
