Abstract: With the trend of intelligent systems, interaction between human beings and smart home products tends to be diversified with the development of technology. In this context, whether the selection of different interactive control forms of products will affect the user experience? Moreover, whether situational differences will affect users' interaction decisions? To solve the above problems, this article takes the interactive form of smart home products as the research object and takes the indispensable lighting products in the smart home system as an example. Based on literature research, the classification of interactive control methods of smart home products is clarified at first. The user interview method summarizes several typical daily home situations that are universally representative. In addition, based on questionnaire analysis method, user's interactive decision-making tendency, and decision dimension in several typical family living situations are researched. It is found that the current interactive control methods of smart home products can be roughly divided into touch-based physical interaction, non-touch motion sensing interaction, and third-party device-assisted control. It is also found that in several universal and representative family living situations, the decision-making tendencies and dimensions of interactive control behaviors of different situations are diverse. This study's significance is providing reference ideas and methods for the interaction design and research of smart home products. This study aims to call on designers to comprehensively analyze the diversified value demands of users in combination with the differences in situational demands and then design a corresponding interactive control form, achieving the goal of more humanized interaction between users and smart home products.
