User Needs in Smart Homes: Changing Needs According to Life Cycles and the Impact on Designing Smart Home Solutions
TLDR
Smart home needs from a user point of view is presented based on co-creation workshops with residents of different life cycles in Belgium and concludes that their needs for smart solutions and the way they want to equip their homes differ.
Towards Universally Usable Smart Homes – How Can MyUI, URC and openHAB Contribute to an Adaptive User Interface Platform?
TLDR
Criteria for the provision of universal usability in Smart Homes is presented, based on Schneiderman’s research agenda on universal usability for web and other services and the Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII) approach is proposed for accommodating personal user preferences in Smart homes.
Consumers' Perceptions on Smart Home and Smart Living
TLDR
This research suggests that attitudes toward using technology, social influence, perceived usefulness and perceived innovativeness impact users’ adoption decisions, and that there is no single solution that lead to the outcome of interest—smart home technology adoption—but multiple configurations of conditions do.
User in the Loop: Adaptive Smart Homes Exploiting User Feedback - State of the Art and Future Directions
TLDR
A general architecture that is responsible for adapting automation for the different users of the smart home while recognizing their activities is presented and preliminarily simulated experimental results regarding the determination of preferences for a user are presented.
Interoperability in Smart Living Network—A Survey
TLDR
A survey is done on how the interoperability is built with the efficient use of power energy in the existing smart living by focusing on embedded systems or embedded devices.
Market adoption barriers of multi-stakeholder technology: Smart homes for the aging population
For more than a decade, the Smart Home has promised to offer a better quality of life by connecting in-house devices and monitoring their usage. Such platform-based configurational technology has
Exploring Platform Adoption in the Smart Home Case
TLDR
This work explores the determinants for wide-spread adoption of SH platforms informed by 21 experts from 19 companies and yields a theoretical model on SH platform adoption, which provides a basis for further research on platform ecosystems and managerial implications on platform design and governance in the SH field.
