I. Introduction

With the popularization of smart home technology, wireless visual doorbells have become an essential component of modern home security monitoring. They not only provide convenient functions such as real-time monitoring and remote unlocking, but also bring unprecedented user experience through intuitive user interface design. Among the design elements of wireless visual doorbells, menu design is a crucial factor related to user experience. This article will delve into the menu design of wireless visual doorbells, including menu hierarchy, menu presentation, and menu content, and provide detailed analysis through examples.

II. Menu Hierarchy: Clear and Concise, Avoiding Redundancy

In the menu design of wireless visual doorbells, the menu hierarchy is of paramount importance. A clear and concise menu hierarchy can help users quickly find the desired functions, avoiding excessive nesting and complex operation paths. Typically, we place the main functions in the main menu to ensure that users can see them at first glance. Secondary functions are placed in submenus to maintain the conciseness of the main menu.

III. Menu Presentation: Diversity and Adaptability

The way menus are presented is a significant factor affecting user experience. The presentation methods of wireless visual doorbell menus can be diversified, such as sidebars, bottom tabs, and top dropdown menus. Selecting the appropriate presentation method depends on the actual usage scenario and screen size of the doorbell.

Taking the sidebar as an example, it is usually suitable for doorbells with larger screen sizes. It can place the main menu on one side of the screen, displaying or hiding menu items by sliding the screen. This presentation method can make full use of screen space while maintaining a clean and beautiful interface. However, for doorbells with smaller screen sizes, sidebars may appear too crowded and inconvenient for user operation.

Therefore, for small wireless visual doorbells, bottom tabs may be a better choice. Bottom tabs place the main menu at the bottom of the screen, displaying menu items in the form of icons or text. Users can enter the corresponding function interface by clicking on the corresponding icon or text. This presentation method is concise and clear, suitable for displaying multiple function options in a limited space.

In addition, the top dropdown menu is also a common menu presentation method. It usually hides the main menu at the top of the screen, and users can expand the menu by pulling down when needed. This presentation method can save screen space while maintaining the conciseness of the interface. However, it is worth noting that the pull-down operation may conflict with other functions (such as sliding to view the monitoring screen), so it needs to be fully considered during design.

IV. Menu Content: Concise and Easy to Understand

Menu content is the core of the menu design of wireless visual doorbells. The menu content should be concise and clear, and each menu item should clearly express its function. At the same time, using icons or short descriptions can enhance users' understanding of the menu content and further improve the user experience.

In the design of menu content for wireless visual doorbells, we need to pay attention to the following points:

Clear functions: Each menu item should correspond to a specific function to avoid ambiguity or confusion.

Icon assistance: Use intuitive and understandable icons to assist with text descriptions, helping users quickly identify functions.

Short descriptions: Provide brief descriptive text for each menu item to help users better understand its function.

Taking the "real-time monitoring" menu item as an example, we can use a camera icon to represent this function and add a text description "Real-time Monitoring" below the icon. When users click on this menu item, they will enter the real-time monitoring interface, displaying the real-time picture outside the door. Similarly, for the "remote unlocking" menu item, we can use a lock-shaped icon to represent this function and add a text description "Remote Unlocking" below the icon. When users click on this menu item, they will enter the unlocking interface, prompting them to enter a password or verify their fingerprint to unlock the door.

V. Conclusion

The menu design of wireless visual doorbells is a crucial factor related to user experience. By optimizing the menu hierarchy, selecting the appropriate menu presentation method, and designing concise and clear menu content, we can provide users with a more convenient and comfortable user experience. In the future design of wireless visual doorbells, we should continue to explore new menu design ideas and technologies to meet users' higher demands for smart home security monitoring.
