Award Winning Design
Armon V10 is a multi-factor access control reader that combines 5 different technologies. Its modular components allow 8 alternative product assembly options, making it possible to customize for different environments and needs. With sleek and compact design, Armon V10 reflects a futuristic outlook while guaranteeing secure operability.
We are proud to say that Armon received the Good Design award from Design Turkey thanks to its successful design.
As modern living spaces such as open offices, smart buildings, and shared spaces increase, the need for technologies that facilitate circulation increase as well. This need is widespread in all sectors for the purpose of facility security, use of restricted areas and tracking flexible working schedules.
In the suggested background of a developing culture, the intention was set: To create a modularly configurable product that both incorporates the technologies of the modern IoT world and enriches the space it’s used with its stylish and modern design.
Armon is designed to respond to a variety of usage scenarios and the developing technology. It is a digital access solution that replaces inefficient security applications. Its flexibility provides efficiency for layered security requirements. Armon is a product of our approach to #DesignForLife.
Award Winning Design Armon V10 and The Design Process
Armon V10 is a multi-factor reader which enables operation of doors, turnstiles, etc. by authorized persons in areas where physical access control is needed. The device is configurable with 4 different verification options available and the camera takes a snapshot photo for extra safety. It can be operated through WiFi or GSM network. Next-up, face recognition will be added to the same device.
Its minimal design language and the functional components that are linked in unity provide the user with a strong product perception and an enhanced user experience.
Multiple-Aspects of User Experience
Armon V10, with its modular structure, incorporates NFC card, phone, QR code and fingerprint reader technologies simultaneously, and fully satisfies this emerging need. The product provides the user ease through multiple identification options; it resolves any hardships that security procedures cause in daily life. The product is radically differentiated from its competitors as there are no other devices in the market that brings together all these technologies at once and also operate over a mobile network.
The form considers that the details of our surrounding are a defining aspect of our mood. We #CreateWithEmpathy. The sleek and compact design pursues aesthetics in futuristic yet organic lines, inviting into a friendly and high quality experience.
Different functional units are brought to use with the right ergonomics. The access verification agents are positioned in an intuitively understandable way. The verification feedback through sound and light is incorporated in the design with unity. The user-friendly design language stands out in an architectural texture.
Multiple Assembly Options – Product Line
Considering all the different areas such as rooms of plazas, offices, parking areas, social facilities, warehouses, etc., we created a product with multiple components which would allow customization for specific needs. The product consists of multiple components that can respond to different assembly options and allows further development in product technology. Due to this flexibility, Armon V10 can be diversified and adjusted to different requirements. With its well-considered production design involving variability, a line of 8 different products can be alternated from the one single product.
Product Strategies and Process Story
After analyzing and identifying user needs, Armon V10 was designed from concept sketches until final form. After being developed in detail and several iterations, the product with its exclusive form and design identity was completed. All our initial goals were reached, and the product received very positive feedback from the field even during the prototype phase.
The engineering process and production management was carried out by Arman Design as well. The design was registered with the first 100 units when the certification process and pilot usage started. You can view the journey of this product and the strategies we developed in the process on our Product and Production Strategies page.
The intuitive experience outlined by the organic lines of Armon’s form refines the flow of security access in daily lives and enriches the environments. It changes the perception from a hassle to high quality lifestyle with its aesthetics and fluent user experience.
Armon V10 received the 2019 Good Design Award from Design Turkey. The award was handed by Ismail Gülle, the president of Turkish Exporters Assembly, to our designers representing Arman Design.
