Nowadays, many older people are afraid of intelligent door locks or intelligent products. They feel that they are too old to see clearly or to read, so they can only keep away from new things.

Nowadays, young people are busy with their careers. They usually go to work in other places, leaving two old people at home. It is very inconvenient for them to go out for a walk once in a while when they are old and forget to take their keys.
The young consumers after 1980 and 1990 are more inclined to intelligent products in the aspects of home, travel, medical treatment and so on. At the same time, as children, they can not always accompany their parents because of work reasons, hoping to bring more safe and convenient life for their parents through intelligent products.

With the surge of intelligent industry, more and more parents are buying smart door locks. With the acceleration of population aging and the liberalization of the second child birth policy, the proportion of the elderly and children in the population is further increasing. Compared with traditional door locks, intelligent door locks are more suitable for the elderly and children to use.

How to get good word-of-mouth among the elderly (the general elderly have a certain misunderstanding of intelligent locking)? Intelligent lock enterprises should not only focus on the needs of young consumers, but also pay attention to the needs of the elderly.
