Smart lock | Shitong

Shitong is a start-up Chinese company who concentrates on smart device technology development. We have designed Shitong’s first product: a smart lock.

The smart lock uses finger print recognition and can be controlled by an app, so that users can track the lock data from a distance.

In order to fit Shitong’s smart technology brand story, we used a modern and clean style for the outer shape design, while an advanced looking LED ring around the finger scanner creates an interactive context with users. This combination of design elements conveys a fresh, high tech technology to the users.

With our design, Shitong has collected enough funding on the Chinese crowdfunding platform Jingdong to start production. The first batch of products have been delivered to consumers gradually.

The product was launched in the summer of 2017, 14 months after we started the design process.
