Facing the population aging and product intelligence, comprehensively, systematically and accurately grasp the perception ability of the elderly, build a rule system for the design of smart home products suitable for the elderly, establish a practical basis for the design of smart home products for the elderly, and improve the quality of life of the elderly at home. The perception ability of the elderly is classified and summarized, and a questionnaire on the use status of smart home products for the elderly is compiled to investigate 30 elderly people aged 65-80. The survey data were analyzed by statistical methods to form user images and user use maps, as well as an evaluation system for the perception ability of the elderly. Visual ability, auditory ability, tactile ability, cognitive ability and psychological state are the main factors affecting the satisfaction evaluation of the interactive interface of smart home products for the elderly. According to the evaluation index system of perception ability, combined with the design practice cases, three interactive interface design methods of smart home products for the elderly, such as multi-sensory cognitive design, rough operation interaction design and emotional care design, are explored and summarized. The analysis of the design case verifies the effectiveness of the design method, and also shows the importance of user participation in the design process, as well as the role of simplicity, multi-sensory, rough operation and wizard in improving the satisfaction of elderly in using smart home products.
