An electronic lock is different from a mechanical lock in that it uses an induction card, a digital password and a fingerprint to unlock the lock. In the big wave of smart home, electronic lock is considered as the entry level product of smart home. With the upgrade of consumption and the change of people’s consumption concept, excellent user experience will be the future development trend of electronic lock. However, in view of the current development status of electronic lock products, there is still a lack of research on user experience of electronic lock. This paper will evaluate the current electronic lock product structure from the perspective of user experience, to improve the user experience of electronic lock products in the future.
