Ensto Enervent Oy

Ensto Enervent specializes in energy-saving air handling and heat recovery products for homes and buildings. We joined hands in the development of their new ventilation management solution, eAir.


The Challenge

Ensto Enervent wanted to modernize their ventilation management offering. The challenge was to renew the air handling panel and create a web-based solution for remote control. The client desired for a simple and visually enjoyable touch screen UI that shows only the essential information. The system should also provide comprehensive settings for optimal installation. While concepting the product we needed to acknowledge the perspectives of three different user groups: commissioning engineers, technical support and homeowners.


The Solution

Our strong competence of creating appealing touch screens designs helped us to excel in this project. We redesigned the control panel UI logic and created attractive visualizations to design an efficient product, which supports the workflows of each user group. We validated our designs with user experience testing to guarantee the correct direction. After completing our work with eAir controller, we applied Ensto’s new brand style to design a compatible web interface for remote management. With responsive design and fresh visual style we created an easy-to-use solution, which can be used with tablets and desktop computers alike.

The Impact

Through our collaboration Ensto Enervent’s ventilation management offering was revolutionized. The eAir product evolved into a modern touch screen ventilation management solution that makes the air handling control straightforward, visually enjoyable and accessible on the go. Also the environmental values are supported with separate Eco operation mode – an easy way to save energy.

Leadin designed the visual style and user interface for our revised product. They took the platform restrictions well into consideration and created a stylish and modern user interface according to our needs. An interactive QML implementation was available right from the beginning of the project, which made the communication very easy. Also collaboration with the software developers responsible for the technical implementation worked out extremely well. On the whole, we are extremely satisfied with Leadin’s work.
