Electronic Key Lock - A Case Study

Industrial design and mechanical design for a client remote control electronic key lock.  Precursor technology to the Internet of Things


Electronic Key Lock

Project Brief

A technology development company approached Trig for industrial design support for their commercialization of electronic locks with keyfob control. Starting with a simple concept visualization phase, the relationship grew into a comprehensive design services relationship, filling gaps in areas of software user experience mapping, user manual design, 3D CAD, rapid prototyping in a variety of materials, design-for-manufacture, electromechanical troubleshooting, trade show booth design, packaging, and multiple follow-on product designs. One of the core selling points of the SimpliciKey technology was that it was designed to fit your home architecture, not that you've simply placed a cell phone on your door.
