Description

Smart Home Ecosystems consist of multiple IoT devices (Internet of things) that communicate with each other to increase the ease of everyday activities. Though there are many advantages to adopting smart homes, the uptake has been slow. Smart homes have been the focus of interest for governmental as well as private organizations as there is a promise for costs to be saved and reduction of energy use if implemented. Though smart homes are filled with many smart devices, there are certain characteristics and requirements that makes adopting the technology more feasible. This paper will investigate the major requirements for a smart home ecosystem under three dimensions; people, process and technology. Understanding these requirements and identifying the current challenges will allow solutions to be formed on how to increase the rate of adoption. These potential solutions will be shown through a proposed artefact which will show the requirements, challenges and solutions.
