The focus of this project was to create a website and accompanying app for the company of our choice so I chose to create a microsite and app for Lowe’s Home Improvement. I first chose to create a website that would allow users to track and improve their energy efficiency. The app allows you to add and manage products that you may already have, or that you purchase to a tracker. The tracker adds values like power consumption, heat loss and many other values. The website uses the data it collects and tells you your impact on the environment, your energy savings, your approximate energy usage and how much you are saving based on your average power rate. The app further extends the website by adding a barcode scanner that enables you to scan products in store to see what their efficiency values are. Once an item is purchased, adding it to your tracker is as easy as snapping a picture of the barcode.
