Abstract
In a world where the UX-standard is rising from the use of well-developed everyday products, better UX Design is becoming more and more expected of all products within the IT-industry. It can not only be argued that an investment in UX Design is critical for the future position on the surveillance camera industry, but also required to meet requirements of the non-experts installing the camera. UX Design could be also be an economical profit as it will lower the need of support and education, while also increasing sales through branding.

We have created an installation wizard through several iterations. With a thorough background study we have learned how to use established UX Design methods, like for example usability testing, to the fullest. These iterations have created a total of four design prototypes where every step of the wizard has been designed by paper, evolved to a mid fidelity Balsamiq Mockups prototype and through the process become a mature and clickable high fidelity prototype. The prototypes have been made using established design rules, latest design trends and Axis Communications’ new graphic identity.

With instant feedback, minimalistic design, less technical terms, smart guessing and automated settings we created a more efficient way to install an Axis camera while also encouraging the user to make changes to and explore settings. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
I en värld där UX-standarden höjs av att använda välutvecklade vardagsprodukter, förväntas det bättre och bättre UX Design av alla produkter inom IT-branschen. Man skulle kunna säga att UX Design inte bara är avgörande för den framtida positionen på övervakningskamerabranschen, utan även ett krav för att möta efterfrågan av att det inte längre endast är experter som installerar kameror. UX Design kan också skapa en ekonomisk vinst eftersom det sänker behovet av support och utbildning samtidigt som det ökar försäljningen genom att stärka varumärket.

Vi har skapat en installationswizard genom flera iterationer. Med en grundlig bakgrundsstudie har vi lärt oss att använda etablerade UX Design-metoder, som till exempel användningstestning.... (More)
I en värld där UX-standarden höjs av att använda välutvecklade vardagsprodukter, förväntas det bättre och bättre UX Design av alla produkter inom IT-branschen. Man skulle kunna säga att UX Design inte bara är avgörande för den framtida positionen på övervakningskamerabranschen, utan även ett krav för att möta efterfrågan av att det inte längre endast är experter som installerar kameror. UX Design kan också skapa en ekonomisk vinst eftersom det sänker behovet av support och utbildning samtidigt som det ökar försäljningen genom att stärka varumärket.

Vi har skapat en installationswizard genom flera iterationer. Med en grundlig bakgrundsstudie har vi lärt oss att använda etablerade UX Design-metoder, som till exempel användningstestning. Dessa iterationer har lett till totalt fyra designprototyper där varje steg av wizarden har blivit designad på papper, utvecklats till en mid fidelity Balsamiq Mockups-prototyp och genom processen blivit en välutvecklad och klickbar high fidelity-prototyp. Prototyperna har skapats genom att använda etablerade designregler, de senaste designtrenderna och Axis Communications nya grafiska profil.

Med direkt feedback, minimalistisk design, färre tekniska termer, smarta förslag och automatiska inställningar har vi skapat ett mer effektivt sätt att installera en Axis-kamera som även uppmuntrar användaren att göra ändringar samt utforska inställningarna. (Less)
