AR in the property sector

 Example application

Imagine walking by a new housing development, on which work hasn’t yet begun. Pointing a smart device at a logo, sign or other type of ‘trigger image’ would enable the viewer to see each house model, take a look inside the house and see the finished development, even the cars on the drives!

What’s a Trigger Image?

A trigger image is anything that ‘triggers’ the smart device to show you a computer generated (augmented) layer on top of what you already see through the camera lens on a Smartphone or Pad.

Now think of the possibilities of sitting in your home and looking at a property brochure. By pointing a smart device at an artist’s impression or a photograph of the house, you take part in an interactive walkthrough or a video introduction with animation, enabling you to explore and discover more information that’s relevant to you. Choose for example carpets, fixtures and fittings and see them in-situ before you order them from the developer.

Using AR technology supports after sales too. Interactive help areas and guides covering different aspects of the house, enable residents to help themselves, by pointing their Smart device at the oven, boiler or fuse box (for example), helping provide high levels of customer service whilst minimising developer resources with unnecessary calls.
