Speculative Design (Neighborly Settings)
I worked on the neighborly settings as a practice on this design space. In this feature, we are targeting a scenario that the camera owner has the camera set at their backyard. However, some of the neighbors’ yard may be recorded by the camera. To preserve neighbors privacy, the owner can either create a non recording zone on the video or share the setting to neighbor so the neighbor can cross out where they don’t want to be recorded.
This feature is mainly a gesture for the users to share, “I have this camera that records my backyard, but I respect your privacy, so I block out the area on video where your yard is. This way I can surveil my property without intruding your privacy.”
With more thoughts on possible features, we begin to envision where these feature might live in a home security application.
We based our imagination on current apps on the market and worked around different scenarios where these features might be needed.
Here, I focused on what people might want to see at each step of the neighborly setting process.
